Who needs metadata anyway?

Metadata is a hot topic in technical documentation and is regularly discussed in presentations, articles and blog posts like this one. Interest in metadata in our industry therefore cannot be ignored, but why is this? Buzz words like “intelligent content”, “Industry 4.0”, “content delivery”, “PI class”, “iiRDS” and “artificial intelligence” are on everyone’s lips. These topics come up in different contexts, yet time and again all of them can be traced back to one common denominator – this ominous metadata. Who or what is it? Where does it come from? Who sent it? Does it come in peace? Will it take over the world? And what do I do if there doesn’t appear to be any of it? You’ll find out the answers to all these questions in this blog article!

Content delivery made even easier!

You only need a few things for content delivery with SCHEMA: SCHEMA ST4, SCHEMA CDS, modular content and metadata. To tell you the truth, SCHEMA ST4 is not absolutely necessary here, but that’s a discussion for another time. For a long time now, SCHEMA ST4 has been your tool for creating intelligent modular content with taxonomies and metadata. One upload to the Content Delivery Server later and your content is also available via mobile apps or the browser, where it can be filtered according to target group. There are now some new features awaiting you in SCHEMA ST4 and SCHEMA CDS which make this process even smoother. Continue reading

Intelligent information with machine learning and the SCHEMA Content Delivery Server

Intelligent information is currently a huge talking point at many companies that wish to efficiently communicate content relevant to the situation to their customers or employees, e.g. using a content delivery portal such as the SCHEMA Content Delivery Server. However, the enrichment of content with metadata often involves a high degree of manual work. This article will present ways in which to achieve seamless automation and integration of this process with the aid of machine learning and WebHooks. Continue reading

A new world of documentation with iiRDS

Each passing day brings us closer to the 2017 tekom conference in Stuttgart.

Content Management in a New Light: The SCHEMA CDS, What is Behind it

From November 11 to 13 the documentation sector will meet for its most important event, the tekom Annual Conference. This year for the first time, it will be held at the Messe Stuttgart. And we at SCHEMA will present as exhibitors and have our own booth.

“Is there really any news regarding Content Management?” I can answer this question with an emphatic “Yes”. And be assured: News for us at SCHEMA does not mean “we are now able to do DITA as well” or “ST4 also creates mobile content”. Do not get me wrong: Both statements are of course correct.

But at the tekom event this year we will be able to present a totally new type of product in the form of the SCHEMA Content Delivery Server (short CDS) to you. A product which to a certain extent reinvents Content Management.

I would already now like to invite you to visit us, should you be in Stuttgart. And in this blog I would like to present to you in advance the paradigm change of this new technology.
