    Join Mekon at the Center for Information-Development Management for the nineteenth annual Content Management Strategies/DITA North America Conference in San Diego, California on April 24-26 2017.

    Come to San Diego and meet publications professionals who have implemented content management strategies and the OASIS DITA standard in their organizations. Hear from key tool developers who are actively supporting the standards-based community.

    This years' programme offers an extensive range of industry experts including keynote speaker Jared Spool founder of User Interface Engineering and a leading expert on user experience (UX) design. We are delighted that CIDM included two presentations from Mekon staff for 2017.  Don't miss seeing:

    • On Track to Delivering Digital Content at Siemens Mobility - Julian Murfitt co-presenting with John Straw, Siemens (Tuesday 16:20)
      The presenters will show how Siemens identified waste in their existing processes and used the DITA standard to create an innovative publication system. User feedback and technical contributions at the point of consumption, coupled with interactive information, have contributed towards an estimated 30% saving in train maintenance effort.
    • Taxonomy Now! Using your current tools to create a stress-resistant knowledge architecture - Joe Pairman (Wednesday 10:30)
      Learn how authors can use a controlled taxonomy consistently and easily, even with standard tech docs tools. You will arm yourself with techniques and approaches to build a taxonomy that’s strong enough to grow with the changing needs of your organization. In addition you will understand how taking findability and taxonomy seriously may require tweaks to your content structures for best results.


    The Mekon team will be available throughout the event to discuss your DITA, taxonomy and content needs.  If you would like to arrange a time to meet our team please email moc.n1527407247okem@1527407247namri1527407247ap.eo1527407247j1527407247.
