Preparing Your Content for the Future: Bots, Machine Learning and AI

Are you ready for how AI, machine learning, and other future technology will affect content development?

The database revolution changed our relationship to data, making it reusable for different target audiences, contexts and situations. It also made it ready for flexible delivery to different apps and across many different platforms and media. But somehow these outcomes never fully transferred over to content. How can we bring this same revolution to content and win the same kind of enormous improvements that would prepare us for the future?

Structured content management enables organizations to store, organize and build their content so that pieces are easily discoverable, reusable, reconfigurable and adaptable. It provides the perfect solution for constructing large, complex documents, but also for delivering modular content to chatbots, portal sites, and mobile apps. But, more importantly, it is also key to future-proofing your content for emerging technological trends.

Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, and his special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, Founder and CSO of DitaExchange, for this free one-hour webinar. Attendees will learn what structured content management is and how it works. They will understand what benefits structured content can have for writers, project managers, business owners, IT departments and content consumers. They will also learn how to prepare their content to be fed into new technologies with practical examples from the field.

    Jill Sheffield and Megan Gilhooly
    There comes a time when an organization must take the next step in their digital evolution. In Mastercard’s case, they recognized that large technical manuals made it too cumbersome for customers to find the answers they need – they often had to dig deeper and deeper just to find out if they were even looking in the right place.

    So Jill Sheffield and her global team of 68 technical communicators set out on a bold new mission: to ensure customers who visit their documentation site can always get closer to their information needs in 5 seconds or less.

    This required them to rethink – and rebuild – their approach to content strategy. And with that accomplished, MasterCard is now able to provide fast access to personalized, dynamic and easy-to-find content in multiple channels across business domains. 

    Join Jill Sheffield, VP of Content Strategy & Development at Mastercard, and Megan Gilhooly, VP of Customer Experience at Zoomin, to learn how Mastercard has transformed their new content strategy into day-to-day operations.

    Here’s what you’ll learn:
    • How Mastercard provides documentation that’s timely, accessible and relevant, to a global audience
    • 5 features they’ve implemented to deliver a better content experience
    • 4 metrics to define a successful content strategy

  • Treat Code Like Code; Treat Prose Like Prose Recorded: Sep 24 2020 42 mins
    Tom Johnson
    Join us for a Coffee and Content chat with Tom Johnson about what it means to "treat code like code and prose like prose." In the docs-as-code tools space, a popular method for reviewing docs is to review docs using the same code review tools that software engineers use to review code. Code review tools cater to engineering workflows and preferences, for sure. If you want an engineer to review a change in your docs, it makes sense to use the same review method the engineer is accustomed to using for reviewing code.

    However, good docs require input from people outside of engineering roles. Product managers, field engineers, quality assurance, support engineers, legal advisors, UX, and other stakeholders also need to review docs. A review process that excludes these non-engineering roles can be problematic, especially since these other roles often serve as a check and balance against the features engineering teams create. Sometimes it's better to treat docs more like prose instead of code.
