Structured content authoring
Intuitive | Collaborative | Governed
A web-based solution with an intuitive Word-like interface that transforms content creation for authors, subject-matter experts and other content stakeholders in life sciences, financial services, manufacturing and other industries.
Why structured content authoring (SCA)?
Many industries are under pressure to deliver accurate content faster than ever. They need the writing and review of business-critical and regulated content – which evolves over long periods – to be less laborious, repetitive and vulnerable to error.
When standard word-processing tools aren't up to the job, our Tridion and Fonto SCA solutions offer:
- Easy content reuse and updates – without duplication or error
- Simplified collaboration no matter how many stakeholders are providing input
- Content governance including defined taxonomy use and 100% reliable audit trails
How does SCA work?
Unlike standard word processors, which store and manage content as documents, our SCA tools store and manage content as smaller components. A component could be a phrase, paragraph, series of paragraphs, image, video, table, or any other piece of content. Documents or other deliverables are created by assembling components into a whole – they don't exist as a single file until they're published. Components can be used in multiple publications without duplication.
The content is structured because there is a set of rules – a schema or content model – specifying the relationships between components and how they can be organized.
