The JoAnn Hackos Workshop Series announces the Information Modeling for Topic-based Authoring workshop in Natick, MA February 26-27, 2013, taught by Dawn Stevens.

Are you responsible for your organization’s Information Architecture? Do you need to understand how to create that architecture and capture the plans and principles in an Information Model?

This workshop is the very best starting point for your implementation of DITA and XML topic-based authoring. We will cover all aspects of the Information Model, which is the set of principles that define your information architecture. Learn how to build an Information Model for your organization. Learn how to define your information types, the content units they contain, your standard document structures, as well as your metadata schema, file and graphic naming conventions, and folder structure. You will have an opportunity to apply the principles to your own content. You will analyze your organization’s potential for content reuse and begin to define a reuse strategy.

If you are already searching for a content management solution or just beginning your content management implementation, it’s not too late. Your first draft of an Information Model prepares you for your pilot project and beyond. Even if you have implemented a content management system and DITA but you’re not getting the return on investment you had hoped, Information Modeling will set you on the right path.
