Big Data Terminology: How Collibra Integrated a Terminology Workflow in MadCap Flare

Track 2 MadCap Flare Case Study Agile

As a fast-growing company, Collibra suffered from the typical symptoms: lack of information sharing, wrong or inconsistent terms, different interpretations and contradictory definitions. To tackle those challenges, they implemented an agile terminology workflow by integrating their Data Governance Center (DGC) with MadCap Flare. In this session, Ken De Wachter describes how technical writers and subject matter experts collaborated to manage terminology in DGC, and integrated their tool with MadCap Flare. In addition, learn how Ken took advantage of Flareā€™s nifty functionality to automatically update their documentation accordingly, such as putting relevant links to the glossary where needed.
