Today, we create content that might go out as online help and PDF. Tomorrow… Mobile? Dynamic online help? Metadata-driven intelligent content? Some output just being developed now? Who in 1992 foresaw the growth of the web? Why does it matter?

In the past, we used control files incorrectly, and set up projects inefficiently, and violated standards, and got away with it because we had time to make mistakes and fix them. But today's ROI and time-to-market pressures require us more and more to create content that can be used on whatever outputs and display devices the future may bring.

Many of the features and technologies needed to do this have been built into our tools for years but have not been used correctly (or at all), or are little known because few people needed them. Others are just emerging. So, to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past, this presentation looks at the required changes in philosophy, coding, standards, and methodologies we need to use to future-proof our content.
