Suzanne Mescan: Component Content Management Advantages
Suzanne Mescan: Component Content Management Advantages
Suzanne Mescan of VASONT SYSTEMS discusses how component content management solutions (CCMS) differs from traditional CMS. Component content management stores content at the topic or sub-topic level, which is ideal for technical communications. This allows a chunk of "documentation" to be authored one time and used multiple times throughout publications, saving time and cost in translation and other areas.

Kenneth Risdon: Adobe FrameMaker Saves the Day
Kenneth Risdon: Adobe FrameMaker Saves the Day
In this STC/Adobe interview, Risdon describes a 1,000 page project that had 50 different scientists contributing and was a year overdue. The conversion to FrameMaker "saved" the project by providing sturdy document structure and many features not found in competitive products. Microsoft Word was rejected because the 1,000 page content cause major problems with swapping order and updating massive cross references and index entries.

Joe Welinske: Testing Your Documentation
Joe Welinske: Testing Your Documentation
Joe Welinske shared keen insights in this area in another Adobe booth interview at STC Summit. "Unless you test your documentation, you have no idea whether it is useful or not. Most companies test everything related to their software in areas of usability." Welinske has been able to test documentation through user surveys and he confesses that "it is a scary thought to consider... has most of this content been useful at all?"

Bernard Aschwanden: Benefits of Structured Authoring
Bernard Aschwanden: Benefits of Structured Authoring
Documentation exists to support the application, not just to be read. Traditionally, we have written long procedures with a great deal of overlap, and often more information than the user is seeking. Topic-based authoring with topic, concept and task allows you to write very targeted information with a high degree of reuse. Updating projects is much easier to do with DITA. Topic-based authoring is much more focused, and easier to stay on target.

Ant Davey: Using Data to Improve TechComm
Ant Davey: Using Data to Improve TechComm
In this Adobe interview at the STC Summit, Davey contends that we need to use analytics with online documentation and understand what that data means. Recent research with website users has indicated that the documentation we provide is overly long and poorly written. "The answer is modularization and topic-based authoring."
