The World Is Changing. How We Communicate Is Leading The Way.

Have  you noticed that people around the world have adapted to new communication applications as fast as the technology is provided to them. If we want to reach them in the most effective way, we as information providers have to also adapt to and leverage this mega trend as fast and as strategically as possible.

We at Adobe Systems, Incorporated have been and will continue to bring the latest technology and information delivery systems to our customers.

As one example, we provide applications like RoboHelp 9. This tool maybe 20 years young, but look at how much it has evolved throughout the years.

  • Do you want to create an Adobe AIR App, that is OS and Browser independent?
  • Want to take user comments and moderate what is displayed back to the great viewing audience?
  • Want topic ratings?
  • Do you Want to push new content to your users via the internet or intranet using versioning control?
  • Do you want your user assistance to have a modern look and feel?

Things To Consider When Picking An Enterprise Level XML Editor

You work for a large organization and it’s your responsibility to pick the Company application standard for XML editing, managing and publishing.

Some of the things that everyone consider are:

1. Retraining of current employees on the tool set.
2. Cost of customizing templates.
3. Can the application tools convert my legacy content?
4. Cost of the tools.
5. Cost of customizing the implementation.
6. Availability and cost of application experts.

But have you considered the financial strength of the Application Manufacturer?

Launch Event News

It has been a busy week. We started with the Amsterdam Adobe Technical Communication Suite 3 launch event. It was then on to Paris’ on Thursday and London’s today.

The Technical Communication Suite 3 has been very well received. At the conclusion of the presentations, the audition has been very engaging in how they can use the suite in their workflows. I have to say. They are very creative in their applications.

Next Week we will be on to New York City and then Dallas to do it again.
