Becoming a Data-Driven Documentation Team

Does your documentation library include embarrassing gaps? Are most of your readers ending up reading old content? How many users failed to find answers? Is your most important content also the most popular content? Learn how you can leverage data and analytics tools to create a more data-driven approach to your documentation practices, by tracking which content is being read, which searches are not getting results, how old your content is, where users are coming from, and more. Join us to learn the difference between dry data versus data which delivers actionable insights, to make your teams more productive, and your content more relevant.
