Proposal deadline is May 14th!

This year’s conference takes place November 27-29, 2012, at The InterContinental Boston Waterfront in Fort Point Channel & Boston’s Innovation and Seaport District.

The Gilbane conference is all about helping organizations apply content, web, and mobile technologies to increase communication and engagement with their ecosystem of customers, employees, suppliers, and partners in the most effective and efficient way possible.

This means understanding what technologies can and can’t do, what practices in applying them succeed or fail, how to effectively analyze data and apply results, and how to plan for rapid changes in market and technology evolution. Companies need to be agile and able to incorporate multiple mobile platforms with different form factors and capabilities, and also need to combine engaging content and interfaces with small devices and big data. Our program will be designed to help.

What’s Hot in XML? Workshop on Smart Content Describes Leading-Edge Content Applications

What is hot in XML these days? I have been to a few conferences and meetings, talked with many clients, participated in various research projects, and developed case studies on emerging approaches to XML adoption. DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) is hot. Semantically enriched XML is hot. Both enable some interesting functionality for content delivered via print, on the web, and through mobile delivery channels. These include dynamic assembly of content organized into a variety of forms for custom uses, improved search and discovery of content, content interoperability across platforms, and distributed collaboration in creating and managing content.

On November 30, prior to the Gilbane Conference in Boston, Geoff Bock and I will be holding our 3rd workshop on Smart Content which is how we refer to semantically enriched, modular content (it’s easier to say). In the seminar we will discuss what makes content smart, how it is being developed and deployed in several organizations, and dive into some technical details on DITA and semantic enrichment.  This highly interactive seminar has been well received in prior sessions, and will be updated with our recently completed research findings.  More information on the seminar is available at  http://gilbaneboston.com/10/workshops.html.

By the way, t The research report, entitled Smart Content in the Enterprise, is now available at the research section at Gilbane.com. It (now available from Outsell Inc) includes several interesting case studies from a variety of organizations, and a lot of good information for those considering taking their content to the next level. We encourage you to download it (it is free). I also hope to see you in Boston at the workshop.

Across Systems Sponsors Gilbane Webinar on Integration of Translation Management with CMS

Across Systems, supplier of independent linguistic supply chain technology, partners with Gilbane Group in a Webinar on the integration of content management system technology with translation management on Thursday, June 24 at 10 am PDT/1:00 pm EDT. The one-hour Webinar, entitled “The Integration Calculus: CMS + TMS = Turbo-accelerated Creation of Multilingual Product Documentation,” will include a case study presentation by Frank Erven, a language technology consultant and technical writer from Voith Turbo, a leading German industrial manufacturer serving paper, energy, mobility, and service markets. In 2006 Voith’s translation needs had grown by almost 80 percent. The company recognized the quality threat and risk of delay imposed by the volume increase; the need for a professional translation management system that could save time and improve the quality of documents became obvious. In this webinar, Voith shares its formula for success with multilingual product content creation and delivery. By integrating its content management system, Schema ST4, with Across Systems‘ translation management technology, the company now initiates and controls workflows automatically. Furthermore, the company was able to gain a continuous process from source text creation to multilingual document output, which saves it as much as 55 percent over its previous costs. The session will be moderated by Mary Laplante, vice president and lead analyst of Gilbane Group. Attendees to the Webinar will learn how content management, translation management, and smart content drive customer satisfaction. Register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/922916738
