This program is ideal for organizations that are trying to move toward Intelligent Content. The Content Architecture team from UW-Parkside and Ictect will work with your project team to develop a prototype at a low-cost.

This program will explore innovative ideas that maximize the value and lower the cost on your existing content. When it comes to your company needs, you are the expert. Only you can determine the project and goals you want to achieve with this initiative.

Examples of types of documents and feasible projects can include:

  • Sales proposals
  • Safety instructions
  • Healthcare procedures and patient guidance
  • Product information including user documentation
  • Web Site content

Organizations that participate in this program will discuss their content innovation needs with Ictect and UW-Parkside content architecture team. Together, they will finalize the project focus area and a high-level scope of work. The collaborative project takes about 8 weeks. The project team develops and delivers a prototype application that demonstrates what benefits are possible. As part of the prototype, the team will undertake the following activities:

  • Comprehension of your business objectives
  • Review of your current and desired workflow
  • Content analysis
  • Proposal of alternative prototypes
  • Development of a prototype
  • Presentation and delivery of the prototype
  • Assistance in development of the business case for deploying the demonstrated capability within your organization

The content architecture team will also publish a case study for educational purposes, with your permission. No proprietary information of company data will be published in the case study, unless you authorize us to do so.

Please note that there is a fee for participation in the program. For a limited period of time, part of the prototype development costs are covered by WiSys Foundation, UW-Parkside and Ictect. We will advise you of the cost once full assessment is completed.
