Getting the Most Out of a Proof-of-Concept Project for DITA Adoption
Tuesday, May 16, 2023 – 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm
Transitioning from unstructured authoring to structured authoring with DITA is a major investment for an organization. For the transition to be successful, people, processes, tools, and resources need to work in sync. It is surely not for the faint of heart, but it does not have to be a scary process. A well-thought-out proof-of-concept (PoC) project can provide many benefits and insights to ensure the success of your DITA adoption project. The benefits of PoC include providing proof of feasibility and proof of value, reducing risks, getting team and leadership buy-in, and providing rationales to secure funding. This presentation defines the concept of PoC and details the factors you need to take into consideration when conducting a PoC project for DITA and CCMS adoption so that you can reap the full benefits of the PoC project.

Guide Users to the Perfect Content Experience, Part 1 of 2
Tuesday, May 16, 2023 – 10:00 am to 10:45 am
As companies grow in size (solutions, clients, employees, content volume) it is tougher to come up with a local, national, international, or global solution to manage content and its associated complexity. See how to create content you can trust. Participate ‘hands-on’ in this interactive session where we’ll tour a CCMS as part of an effective content strategy. We’ll ingest content, edit, review, update, version, and publish to multiple outputs, collaborate as we do it, and see the results in real-time. We’ll explore translation workflow, content migration, and interactive real-time review. When done, you’ll have a chance to continue to explore the workspace after the conference and continue to discover how a CCMS can truly change the way writing is done.
