On June 9, 2016 in Utrecht, The Netherlands, Alex Masycheff, the CEO of Intuillion, will be speaking about how structured content lets you automate manual work and create a new value from your content.

Alex will present the content automation platform that lets you build applications for automated document assembly and content generation. You’ll see several ready-to-use applications in action:

  • Automated assembly of entire documentation sets based on a bill of materials (or a similar document)
  • Automated generation of process diagrams from textual descriptions (e.g., for troubleshooting)
  • Automated generation of project/product requirements documents, summaries, and breakdowns from individual topics
  • Automated generation of the programming code for software and hardware (especially, for companies in the semiconductor industry) from the documentation
  • Automated generation of reference documentation by integrating data from external sources into product documentation

At the conference, you can learn from internationally recognized information specialists about new developments, thoughts and opportunity’s that will reflect your daily work. But that’s not all. You can meet peers to share experiences and exchange best practices with. Solution providers and tool vendors are available to propose how they can help you getting your work done. And we make sure there will be lots of time to talk, listen, ask, discuss and make fun!

On April 4-6, 2016 in Reston, Virginia, we are exhibiting and presenting at the 18th annual Content Management Strategies/DITA North America Conference.

Alex Masycheff, the CEO of Intuillion will be talking about how DITA can help you automate document assembly and content generation. The semantic markup that DITA opens virtually unlimited possibilities for content manipulation and automation. Content enriched with a semantic markup can be manipulated as if it were data in a database. Because automation is also about saving company’s money, understanding the automation potential might help you sell DITA to your management and even expand DITA adoption beyond the technical publication department.

Alex will be also co-presenting with Lisa Pampuch of Netgear, Inc. The “start small, think big approach” that Lisa’s team took to moving to a DITA authoring environment should be very helpful to other companies who are thinking about moving to DITA but are worried about an “all-at-once” approach.

At the conference, you’ll be able to engage with a community of people who believe that international standards, structured content, reuse capabilities, and multiple media delivery are the directions of the future.

Meet publications professionals who have implemented content management strategies and the OASIS DITA standard in their organizations. Learn strategies for content management, taxonomy, faceted search, translation, social media, agile workflow, DITA, Lightweight DITA and a whole lot more! Hear from key tools developers who are actively supporting the standards-based community.

On April 20-22, 2015 in Chicago, we are exhibiting and presenting at the CMS/DITA North America conference, the premier content management event of the year.

He’ll present a case study of a solution that we have built for ourselves to manage requirements for the DITAToo development and our custom projects. You’ll see how pieces of content written by different people from different perspectives (managers, developers, and QA team members) are automatically integrated and assembled into new contexts and how new documents are generated automatically.

Come for the community, experience new insights, and leave with a wealth of new ideas that help you reap the benefits of managing content in your organization. In its 17th successful year, CMS/DITA North America is the premier conference for everyone who manages technical and business content in both small departments and huge global enterprises.

We are conducting a webinar “Making DITA Content Management Easy and Affordable with DITAToo DITA CMS”.

Working with DITA without a content management system is theoretically possible. But as the amount of your content grows, the need to search, track content reuse, handle content variations, publish to multiple output formats, and manage translations becomes critical.

  • Automatically convert your legacy Word documents to DITA
  • Let your colleagues access the central repository and share content
  • Manage links
  • Track content reuse
  • Assemble new documents from the existing content
  • Handle content variations
  • Manage translations
  • Control versions
  • and much more…

Our existing customers (which store many thousands of topics in DITAToo and use DITAToo to manage translations to over 30 languages) like DITAToo because it’s easy-to-use, straightforward, but still powerful.

Join us at this webinar and you’ll see it by yourself!
