Andrea's presentation at Adobe DITA World 2017
It might be hard to believe, but Structured Content has been around for decades. FrameBuilder (an early version of FrameMaker with structured content support) made its debut in the early 1990s. Through the rise of modern tools, like FrameMaker 2017, and technologies, like DITA, structured content has become much easier to author, and thus more popular.
But is structured content important? Or is it just another (albeit long-lived) trend? Given structured content's long reign, isn’t it time for a new strategy to overthrow the throne? For now, at least, the answer is “no.”
If there is a holy grail of content, most experts would probably agree it’s structure. Why? Because structure provides so many benefits, in so many different ways – to authors and authoring, to the content experience, enabling achieving business goals. And the list goes on.
In her presentation, Andrea will discuss the business, user experience, and organizational impact of structured content – all of the aspects that make structured content strategic. And then she’ll try to convince you that structured content is sexy, too!
