*instinctools shows its software product line DITAworks and gives a lecture.
Stuttgart, June 4, 2012 — At this year’s Single-Source-Forum, concepts, visions and the creation of mobile documentation will take the center stage. *instinctools will be present at this event with a lecture entitled “Flexible e-Learning solutions with DITA 1.2″. *instinctools has already been providing DITA-based e-learning solutions to some well-known customers including SAP’s Learning and Training branch.
The annually organized Single-Source-Forum, held in Munich, is considered an industry highlight for technical documentation. At the event, organized by the Comet Group, new insights and trends in the technical documentation will be discussed with a large audience.
Mobile documentation is now on the strategic plans of every documentation team. In the industry, effective and innovative approaches to technical documentation for mobile devices have already been developed. The lectures at the event will cover two areas of mobile documentation. The first session will include the information on techniques and strategies for mobile documentation, while the second will be concerned with living and working in a mobile world.
Both topics have implications for team collaboration, employee needs and the operating structure. For these new approaches of modern knowledge management to function optimally, mobile data and information has to be structured well and stored safely. This information should then be addressed for different needs and different target groups. Opportunities and threats in the cloud and its connection to the mobile world as the foundation for inter-generational and cross-team work will also be discussed at the event. The mobile communications is changing our view of knowledge and information, and is allowing work independent of location and time. For each set of topics, Prof. Sissi Closs will moderate a panel discussion.
At the event, *instinctools team will also showcase itsDITAworks-based product linefor structured documentation. This includes DITAworksPRO – an integrated authoring platform, DITAworksMODEL – an application for creating and managing DITA specializations, DITAworksWEBTOP – the web-based authoring platform and DITAworksECLIPSE – a specific application for the documentation of Eclipse applications.
