Data Consulting and Enrichment
We do it the right way the first time
Today most of the publishers use PDF format to publish their documents on the internet. Do you know that there are other formats available that can increase user productivity and document usability? We have worked with variety of document types including but not limited to Technical Standards, Codes, Laws and Regulations, Company Manuals etc. and enhanced them for better usability.
We will analyze your documents (taxonomy, structure, linking) and implement an optimized transition path to data formats that most benefits you e.g. XML (including schemas if not available), XHTML, ePub, RTF, XLS etc. The output format can also be consumed by our suggested platform that provide various usability and revenue generating features.
The latest data trend is to convert data to XML. To be effective, XML must comply to the schema governed by the delivery platform* or other sub-systems properly. Sometimes, current XML may need to be further enhanced to cater to third party sub-system's needs (i.e. additional elements and attributes based on rules and patterns).
Edaptive can develop schema from scratch, or enhance, refine or repair current schema to provide better linking, searches, extraction, embedding, etc. Edaptive will create a perfect XML DTD or Schema that will include the elements necessary for effectively utilizing your XML output.
* The Edaptive online subscription platform is an example of an XML delivery platform that provides functionality designed to enable end users to fully exploit your information through enhanced research, collaboration, personalization, and other productivity enhancing features and tools.
There may be a need to update your style sheets from time to time as your solutions mature through customer feedback and your experience grows. Edaptive can provide this support.
Contact Edaptive today to discuss DTD / Schema development, refinement, repair, or maintenance options.
Edaptive will keep you involved and informed throughout the design, deployment, and go-to-market stages of your XML initiative. It's up to you on the level of your involvement in the process!
