Abstract: This presentation focuses on the value proposition behind creating a standard for a Component Content Management System (CCMS) and why your organization should use a standards-compliant CCMS.


Many people in the technical documentation and content management field may not be aware that there is an international ISO Standard for how a Component Content Management System is built and how its functionality conforms to best practices for content creation and management. 

Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and his special guest, Casey Jordan, co-founder of Jorsek LLC, developers of the easyDITA CCMS, for this free one-hour webinar. As one of three co-authors of the standard (with Dr. JoAnn Hackos and Bob Boiko), Casey helped develop the standard that materially affects the way we utilize structured content in an enterprise or organization. The standard was developed to ensure interoperability between systems and file structures, and to ensure compliance with the open Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) that underlies most Component Content Management Systems.

Casey will discuss the benefits of working with a standard and how it drives contemporary content management practices and will demonstrate how workflows, authoring, editing, review, publishing, reuse, and localization are all driven by the guidelines set in the ISO standard.
The 2016 Virtual Summit on Advanced Practices in Technical Communication is a free event designed especially for technical communication professionals. The event features three days of presentations—12 free-to-attend one-hour presentations—from some of the industry’s best and brightest experts. The Summit covers topics including (bit not limited to) XML authoring, DITA, content strategy, content management, translation and localization, intelligent content, plain language, customer experience, and more.
