Workshop Part 2: Creating the Future State: Enterprise Content Creation, Structure and Distribution

Learn how to plan and implement a future state of enterprise content creation, structure, management, and delivery for a modern technical resource center.

Traditionally, technical details about products and services were considered to be post-purchase content. Technical information — the stuff contained in owner’s manuals, user guides, and other instructional materials — was provided to consumers only after they purchased a product or service. However, that’s changing as companies recognize that prospects often search the web for technical content to make purchasing decisions.

Think of a technical resource center as an online, one-stop shop for information about your products and services. Over time, and done well, a technical resource center can help you grow your business by attracting prospects, while simultaneously working to support and build loyalty and trust with existing customers.

Presented November 27-28, 2018, at Quadrus Conference Center for Information Development World 2018.

Editor's Notes

  • Zoomin sees personalization as a key value to customers and a key differentiating part of our technology. Even when we don’t notice it, we’re all used to getting personalized experiences when we go to Google, Amazon, and any other modern web site. However, for some reason, when consuming support and product documentation, we tolerate with the fact that although the company knows a lot about us – it’s not trying to make our life easier by providing targeted experiences based on who I am and what interests me. If you and I will go to the Cisco support site and try to find information – we’ll see the same thing, regardless of what’s our role, which product we own, and what are the actions we have taken before. 
     
    So, when an end-user has a question, for example when they’re trying to configure a dashboard, Zoomin can leverage information known about this user to improve his experience. Based on whether the user is anonymous or logged in, we take information from the company’s single-sign-on, customer or employee catalog, the user’s own stated preferences, and past behavior. This information is funneled into a set of algorithms, which filter information the user is not supposed to see or that doesn’t interest him, and attempts to determine which profile the user best falls under and which other users are most like him.
     
    Then, Zoomin provides that user an experience that is best suited for him: the user interface are different between users, the search results returned to you are different, content recommendations such as “Other people liked you also liked this..” or “Here are things we think you will find helpful”, personalized banners and marketing campaigns, and more.
     
    The result – each user gets an experience which best suits them, increasing the chances of engagement and monetization.
     
  • Robust content ingestion
    Consistency, personalization, and content re-use
    Findable content delivered through an innovative user experience
  • Robust content ingestion
    Consistency, personalization, and content re-use
    Findable content delivered through an innovative user experience
  • The result is a significant utilization of the enterprise product content investment – Zoomin helps companies turn their content from useful – to findable, engaging and ultimately one that drives business.
    Throughout that journey, Zoomin adds value to the different stakeholders, so that they are motivated to use it:
    - USEFUL: Zoomin provides a highly available cloud platform which support continuous deployment of content, allowing the people who write and manage the content to easily publish content with little overhead and reducing content turnaround time.
    FINDABLE: by ensuring customers have powerful search and SEO optimized experience, Zoomin helps companies improve self-service, reduce number of support cases and increase customer effort score.
    ENGAGING: By providing customers with interactive features such as content recommendations, ability to contribute content and curate personalized content collections, Zoomin helps companies increase retention, promote user feedback and increase average session time.

    And once all of that is done – the door to monetization is wide open..
