The Future of Tech Comm: Structured Authoring, The Internet of Things, and Documentation 4.0 

Speaker: Jack Molisani

A Joint Presentation of the San Francisco Bay and San Diego Chapters of STC

About the presentation

In many companies, various forms of content are created and maintained by different departments, often using different authoring tools. Even a single documentation team can have multiple manuals that need to be updated every time there is a product change. This leads to content inconsistencies, duplicate effort, and a less-than-ideal content experience.

In this session, companies can move product content in a content management system (CMS). This enables content teams to create content once, then deliver that content when the reader needs it, in the language the reader needs, and formatted for the device on which they are reading it.

Finally, I’ll show how integrating a CMS with other enterprise systems can not only improve the user experience, but can also change your documentation teams from cost centers to revenue-generating profit centers.

Want to see how you can increase you sphere of influence and help your company generate more revenue? Don’t miss this session!
