Leaving Proprietary Solutions Behind

Sponsored by: Stilo International
Presenter: JoAnn Hackos, Comtech Services, Inc.
Date Recorded: March 17, 2015
Duration: 1 hour
This is a free webinar.


Your organization developed a proprietary solution for handling content. Perhaps you started with DocBook or DITA and customized them extensively to meet your needs. Unfortunately, the customizations make it impossible to implement the latest version of these standards. Or, your technical experts created their own solution using SGML or XML or something really unusual.

Now, executives are questioning the expense of maintaining that proprietary solution when alternatives are readily available at reasonable cost.

Join Dr. JoAnn Hackos in exploring the costs involved with proprietary solutions and the reasons you may want to consider in converting to a standards-based approach.


Dr. JoAnn Hackos is President of Comtech Services, a content-management and information-design firm based in Denver, Colorado, which she founded in 1978. She is Director of the Center for Information-Development Management (CIDM), a membership organization focused on content-management and information-development best practices. Dr. Hackos and colleagues are called upon by corporate executives worldwide to consult on strategies for content management, development and organizational management, product interface design, customer studies, Web and traditional information architecture, and tools and technology selection.
