XML in Publishing: The Secret to Managing Changing XML Documents

Presented on 13th April 2022 @ 5pm GMT | 9am PST | 12pm EST

This webinar has passed, but you can still watch the recording.

The consistency of change

Change is one of the dynamics of the publishing world – a consequence of industrial or scientific advance, of shifting fashions, of political whim or of the editor’s red pencil. With the threat of poor document change management presenting real business risks, such as failure to comply with regulatory or legal conditions, it’s paramount that change is identified, represented and easily processed.

With structured documents transforming the world of publishing. The majority of structured documents, in general use today, are based on XML, yet change tracking tools have failed to keep up. Join DeltaXML CEO, Robin La Fontaine, on the 13th April as he lets you in on the secret to managing your changing XML documents.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Understand why managing change is important and what could go wrong when change is managed badly.
  • Review the benefits of structured documents in publishing.
  • Understand why the change tracking tools of today might be hindering you rather than helping.
  • Review how XML-aware-tools find change.
  • Participate in a Q&A where you’ll have a chance to get your questions answered.

Publications change constantly throughout their lifecycle. More control over how change is represented speeds up and enhances your publishing process, especially when you can adapt the output of changes for different reviewers, editors or even customers.

XML for Publishers

Discover how change, when harnessed and managed, can add real value to a publishing business. The widespread use of XML structured documentation systems, and the deployment of XML-aware change management tools, has made it possible to bring all of the advantages of structured information to the publishing of change.

With the help from DeltaXML’s XML Compare toolkit, Wrycan delivered a solution which integrated XML Compare with their Content Base product. This allows NFPA to manage all their content in a single repository, adding automated comparisons in a product-agnostic form.
