You CAN prove the savings possible from moving your unstructured content to intelligent content. The benefits are measurable. Intelligent content combined with a content management system can facilitate savings and improvements in content development, translation, regulations, governance, multi-channel publishing, and quality. In this session, we'll discuss how the various processes benefit from intelligent content and discuss metrics that prove the benefit. If it hurts, then it's time to calculate the pain and the relief. This session draws from concepts in Mark's book, DITA Metrics 101, The Business Case for XML and Intelligent Content.
