Managing Technical Communication Content

How XML, iPads, eBooks, social networking, augmented reality and content management are changing how technical communicators work

Speaker: Scott Abel

Changing the way they author, manage, and deliver information is the next big challenge faced by technical communication professionals today. Delivering the right information, to the right people, at the right time, in the right language and in the right format is the goal. But, the truth is, most organizations don't have the bandwidth, talent, nor experience to succeed with this seemingly monumental task without making some fairly significant changes.

Content management strategist Scott Abel (aka The Content Wrangler) has been helping organizations change the way they create, structure, share, publish, and deliver information (technical, medical, regulatory, scientific, marketing and advertising) to those who need it. Attend this lively session to learn how businesses big and small are leveraging new approaches, software, and standards to increase productivity, speed time-to-market, minimize risk, and do more with less. In this lively presentation, Scott will discuss how content strategy, content management, XML authoring, terminology management, metadata, social networking, iPads, eBooks, and augmented reality are changing how technical communicators work. The session will be followed by a 30 minute question and answer session during which Scott will answer questions from the audience.
