Metadata is your key to the Internet of Things, augmented reality, wearable devices, in-context embedded help, dynamic delivery and personalisation, avoiding conditional tagging overload, and a laundry list of additional channels and formats. For some, such potential is in the far-off distance. For others, they’re a present-day challenge.

In this session, we’ll continue from where we left off in Part 1 and look at some of the newer and more exotic metadata standards that modern technical communicators can leverage for the next 2, 5 and 20 years. Far too often, organizations discover their metadata strategy lacking when it’s far too late.
