January 2013 mtg.: It's All About Structure! Why Structured Content Is Increasingly Becoming A Necessity, Not An Option
Wednesday, 05 December 2012


Structured content. XML. Content reuse. Single-sourcing. We've been talking about these techniques, standards and approaches for years. And yet, many organizations still aren't producing semantically-enriched, machine-readable, consistently structured content. But, that's got to change" says Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler. In this 60-minute presentation Scott will explore the many reasons why we must adopt a structured XML, single-source approach to creating, managing and delivering content if we are to succeed in the global, mobile world in which we live. He will also share with the audience some high level results from the 2012 Technical Communication Industry Benchmarking Survey.
