In the last 15 years, information development and communication technology have changed in unprecedented ways and at unprecedented speeds. JANA has remained at the cutting edge of analysis and ROI all along the way.
Our capable consultants are adept in assessing, integrating and using a broad assortment of documentation management and authoring tools. In fact, it would be hard to find a documentation management software title that we haven’t used.
Data Model Analysis
In our long history, the number of documentation libraries that JANA has worked with is outnumbered only by the number of methodologies used to produce them. JANA consultants will leverage their vast industry knowledge to execute a thorough review of your documentation library and your user base to identify the XML strategy (and combination of tools) that best suits your data, your team and your customers. In addition, JANA’s team of experts will design and develop a set of schemas and stylesheets that are suited specifically to your documentation and your output needs.
Too often metadata management is overlooked simply because it is not understood. JANA will work to help you understand the importance of metadata, and help you create and implement a taxonomy strategy that will ensure that your information is integrated and efficiently shared within your company, as well as throughout your customer base.
System Performance (Metrics)
Based on our deep understanding of technical information management, insights gained from industry leaders and the results of internal research efforts, JANA can help organizations understand how they are performing relative to relevant industry standards. JANA actively collects results from studies, articles, conferences and our own observations to understand the performance of industry leaders in regards to all aspects of technical information development and management processes. We will help you benchmark your current performance, and help you to set and achieve performance goals and milestones that will ensure increases in both the quality and efficiency of your information management processes.
Return on Investment (ROI) Model
Invariably you will have to justify expenses for your department. One way to support justification is a Return on Investment (ROI) Model. Business people use ROI to address questions like:
- What do we receive for what we spend?
- Do expected returns outweigh the costs?
- Do the returns justify the costs?
- What is the profitability of the investment?
