Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) May 19, 2016
IXIASOFT, a global leader in the component content management systems (CCMS) marketplace, announced today its participation in two upcoming European content and technical communication events: NORDIC TechKomm Copenhagen and LavaCon Dublin.
IXIASOFT is a sponsor of, and will also be presenting at, NORDIC TechKomm held in Copenhagen, Denmark, May 24 – 25.
“We look forward to being part of NORDIC TechKomm this year,” said Nolwenn Kerzreho, IXIASOFT Technical Account Manager for Europe. “As regular participants in tekom/tcworld, it’s nice to be involved with another tekom event in Europe. With increasing interest in the IXIASOFT DITA CMS within the European market, we find ourselves involved in more and more shows, which are fantastic channels to connect with publication and service managers, technical communicators, and to share information about our DITA CMS.”
On Wednesday, May 24, Kerzreho will present a workshop entitled, “When (and How) to Switch to Structured Content and a CCMS”. This workshop will help audience members recognize when and how a team should consider switching to structured content and a CCMS. Practitioners and documentation managers will be able to better understand their challenges and learn how structured content can help them to serve their customers in a more consistent and timely manner.
Kerzreho is also giving a tools presentation on Wednesday, May 24, entitled, “Collaborative and standard solution for the modern technical publication team”. This presentation will discuss how a technical publication department can support information consistency, more personalized and translated content, and an earlier time-to-market, all while controlling costs by using the appropriate methodology and tools, such as the IXIASOFT DITA CMS.
IXIASOFT partners, Congility and Mekon, are also presenting their products and services at this event.
Less than two weeks later, IXIASOFT will head over to LavaCon Dublin, held June 5 – 8 in Dublin, Ireland. IXIASOFT is a Silver Sponsor of this event - the first European edition of LavaCon. IXIASOFT is exhibiting its signature product, the IXIASOFT DITA CMS, as well as presenting.
“We’re excited to be a part of the first LavaCon Europe,” said Eric Bergeron, IXIASOFT CEO, who will also attend the event. “As the importance of content strategy and management advances globally, it’s nice to see conferences, such as LavaCon, expand into the European market. We look forward to connecting with the attendees and sharing more information with them about how the IXIASOFT DITA CMS can help manage their entire documentation process.”
Nolwenn Kerzreho will lead the pre-conference workshop, “Snakes and Ladders: Content Collaboration in the Real World”, on Sunday, June 5. This workshop will equip participants with planning tactics for laying out their next content initiative. The participants leverage a planning framework and participate in an interactive process of identifying key project opportunities and risks as well as exploring their own project roadmap.
Kerzreho will also present, “DITA Metrics for a Continual Improvement Process” on Monday, June 6. This presentation will discuss how to use DITA metrics beyond the initial Return on Investment calculus and how DITA metrics can also contribute to a continual improvement process.
