Fluid Topics:
From static books to dynamic semantic publishing for your documentation

(Bruno Fraissinede, Antidot)

Authoring solutions have greatly evolved over the last 10 years, but publishing is still stuck in a “static, flat and fat” document generation model. This presentation explains how to switch from a PDF and print-oriented view to a new Web and user-centric approach.

By using Semantic Web technologies for content modelling and enrichment, advanced Web 2.0 interfaces and social oriented features, organisations can change the way users access, read and value their documentation.

Congility:
Accessing Content Wherever You Go – From Knowledge Base to Mobile App

More and more organisations are demanding mobile solutions that go beyond simply providing a responsive version of their content knowledge base. Field engineers, sales staff and customers often need the ability to reliably take content offline and work with no access to the internet.

Enabling users to quickly find relevant content and take it offline requires planning when the content is created.

This presentation explores the various factors that affect delivery of content and its preparation to support an offline mobile app strategy. It looks at how related content can be defined within a knowledge base, and provides a number of examples of organisations using Congility's DITAweb to deliver content on mobile apps.

You will learn:

  • How other organisations are thinking about adopting a mobile solution
  • How relationships can be created between different types of content in the delivery environment
  • How a structured or DITA-based knowledge base can be integrated with a mobile solution
