WEBINAR | Assessing the Amount of Redundant Content in Our Documentation

April 26th, 2023 @ 12:00pm ET

Our Presenter:

TJ Dhaliwal | Technical Sales Product Specialist

Assessing the Amount of Redundant Content in Our Documentation: Advancing Content Reuse with Analyzer 2.0

One significant benefit of adopting a structured standard like DITA is content reuse, which can
reduce redundancy, improve consistency, and minimize overall content. However, due to typos, partial
matches, and other inconsistencies, estimating the value of content reuse can be challenging- especially
before the conversion occurs. Using Analyzer, users can narrow their approximation and
investigate similar matches in their source content before the conversion, providing valuable insight into
the potential benefits of adopting a structured standard. Capture valuable metrics to substantiate
content projects to key stakeholders. Learn how businesses can manage their content more effectively,
increase productivity, and better understand content reuse’s value in their documentation.

Join TJ as he uses Stilo’s Analyzer to investigate source content for hidden reuse. The latest
release from Stilo offers a range of improvements to the user management system, product
architecture and sequence GUI redesign to streamline your content management process.

TJ Dhaliwal is a Technical Sales Product Specialist at Stilo, helping customers uncover solutions to their
content conversion needs. With a solid technical background in engineering and a passion for public
speaking, he’s successfully bridged the gaps between project stakeholders. As a problem solver, TJ has
helped several enterprise-level companies convert tens of thousands of pages of their content to DITA.
