Before Heretto, Jamf used a non-DITA based content repository plus third-party plugins to author content. As a rapidly growing business, Jamf needed a solution to make creating content for its extensive product base easier.
They faced challenges like:
After evaluating many vendors, Jamf decided to utilize DITA XML-based Heretto as their solution because it provides:
- Advanced granular content reuse, which streamlines content production and integration of new content
- Translation memory to reduce the cost of translating content
- A collaborative authoring environment for a shortened content production workflow
- Multichannel publishing capabilities on both their website, learning hub, and app
- A user-friendly interface so that as they grow new authors can quickly onboard
- Semantically enriched structured content that is easy to search
Their authors weren’t trained in DITA, so they needed a partner to support them through the process. Heretto’s extensive training helped Jamf make their transition to structured content as smooth as possible.
Jamf took a phased implementation approach, organizing and cleaning up its HTML content and converting it to DITA XML. To ensure a smooth transition to the new system, they converted a large set of core content from HTML, and Heretto taught Jamf writers how to work with their new CCMS and to create and manage topic-based DITA content.
Now, content is authored in Heretto CCMS and published to their website, portal, and app. The solid foundation of a good DITA model, processes, and translation allowed them to incorporate new content faster. It provided the foundation to launch a robust customer content-access experience known as the Jamf Learning Hub.
Here are some of the results Jamf experiences:
