Documentation Has Value? Prove It.

Co-presented with Joe Gelb.

Technical documentation has traditionally been considered a cost center for product development, sandwiched somewhere between training and support. Forward-thinking companies are increasingly discovering the tremendous impact technical content has on critical functions, such as customer enablement, self-service, support, marketing, and sales enablement. Now, armed with the right data, you can prove it. In this session, we’ll explore how you can measure effectiveness, productivity and impact. We distinguish between useless analytics, scorecard analytics, and metrics that provide actionable insights.
