Gilbane’s study on multilingual communications confirms that enterprise strategies for creating, managing, and publishing multilingual business communications are often vague, if they exist at all. Without these strategies, companies face significant risk and loss of competitive advantage, especially as pressures to grow revenues, control costs, and satisfy customers increase exponentially. If you don’t have a multilingual content strategy in place, how do you get started? If you do, how do you advance your processes and improve performance and quality?
Andrew Thomas from SDL joins us in an online panel discussion on making the case for multilingual content strategies. The webinar draws on new research from Gilbane and real-world experience of SDL’s customers. Registration is open. Sponsored by SDL.

JustSystems has launched a comprehensive educational campaign intended to help technical communicators, LOB managers, and information managers extend the value of structured content outside of its established beachhead in techdoc applications. The campaign, titled “Developing a Strategic Roadmap for Structured Content,” comprises webinars, white papers, and an ROI Blueprint, a tool for identifying the business benefits of structured content throughout the enterprise. Gilbane Group is supporting the campaign with research, content, and webinar participation.
The three webinars look at how companies are leveraging structured content today, or planning to do so in the future. The first event is scheduled for September 11 and focuses on current practice and benchmarking your adoption against leading organizations. Guest speaker is Eric Severson, co-founder and CTO of Flatirons Solutions, the well-regarded professional services firm with deep expertise in content management and XML strategies and applications. Jake Sorofman from JustSystems rounds out the panel.
Register for one or all of the webinars in the series. Attendees will have access to the ROI Blueprint for Structured Content and will receive a Gilbane-authored state-of-the-market commentary after each event.

New Gilbane research confirms that when it comes to delivering multilingual content for global websites, marketing, business, and IT professionals use whatever resources they have at their disposal to just get it done. It’s clear, though, that performing tactically is no longer enough to attract international audiences, maintain competitive positioning, and scale to meet demand. How are companies large and small are making the shift from performing tactically to thinking strategically? More importantly, what can you learn from their experiences?

Richly-formatted reports, often automatically generated by enterprise applications, contain a wealth of information that companies can use to accelerate efficient decision-making or quick diagnosis of customer problems. But business managers and users have long been stymied by complicated technology tools. They need simple, specialized search to aggregate content already output in formats they understand, reports hidden because of far-flung enterprise distribution and storage.
Apps Associates, Oracle, and The Gilbane Group join forces to illustrate the potential simplicity for harvesting the value data hidden in rich content that already exists. Topics include:
- The pain points involved in harvesting valuable data in enterprise reports.
- The technology capabilities that are required to address the pain.
- The solutions that combine these capabilities to deliver application-ready report search.
The panel will also discuss real-world business scenarios that illustrate the value of enterprise search solutions that are fine-tuned for reports. Participants are Lynda Moulton, Lead Analyst for Enterprise Search, Gilbane Group; Jinyu Wang, Principle Product Manager, Oracle Secure Enterprise Search; and Ajay Kapur, Principal and VP – Product Development, Apps Associates.
Moderated by Gilbane Group. Sponsored and hosted by Apps Associates. Registration is open at: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/176132958
