New Case Study From MadCap Software Examines How Venafi is Delivering Socially-Enabled Online Help, Improving the Search Experience, and Synchronizing Documentation with Software Delivery While Cutting Project Time
La Jolla, CA, USA January 6, 2014 MadCap Software, Inc., the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio and Microsoft XPS, today announced that it has published a new case study on Venafi. Venafi is the market leading cybersecurity company in Next-Generation Trust Protection. The company uses MadCap Flare together with MadCap Pulse to deliver interactive, searchable online product guides that support social collaboration. Taking advantage of Flare’s single-source publishing ability, the company delivers its PDF files and HTML5-based Help systems from the same project. The full Venafi case study is available at: http://www.madcapsoftware.com/casestudy/venafi.aspx.
As part of any enterprise infrastructure protection strategy, Venafi helps organizations regain control over trust in the cloud, on mobile devices, applications, virtual machines and network devices by protecting Any Key. Any Certificate. Anywhere™. Venafi prevents attacks on trust with automated discovery and intelligent policy enforcement, detects and reports on anomalous activity, and remediates errors and attacks by automatically replacing misconfigured and compromised keys and certificates. To help these customers implement Venafi’s enterprise solutions, Venafi relies on MadCap Flare and MadCap Pulse. Venafi’s use of Madcap Flare offers these benefits:
Flare’s topic-based structure eliminates redundancies in developing and delivering different product guides.
Variables in Flare allow changes to be made in minutes, instead of two to three days when done manually.
Single-source publishing with Flare enables Venafi to develop content once and then publish it as PDF files and HTML5-based Help.
HTML5-based Help enhances search while drop-down text and thumbnail features with Flare eliminate clutter and enable users to see just the details they want.
Social collaboration and analytics in MadCap Pulse help Venafi tune its online Help for greater ease of use.
Integration with the Git version control system lets Venafi synchronize software development and documentation efforts for a more seamless agile process.
Since we created a market space that didn't exist before, it is important for us to deliver our product information to users in an effective way,” says Derek Warren, Venafi principal information developer. “With the seamless connection between Flare and MadCap Pulse, we are gaining insights that enable us to create a better user experience. We're very happy with very first Venafi Help system (created using MadCap Flare and Pulse), but we also have a roadmap of additional features that we are excited to implement in our next release.”
“With Global 2000 enterprises relying on Venafi to protect valuable and often regulated information, the company understands that ensuring the security of data depends on these organizations’ ability to implement Venafi’s enterprise solutions effectively,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. We are excited by Venafi’s success in setting a new standard for online product guides by using our MadCap Flare and MadCap Pulse products to deliver socially-enabled, easy-to-search content, which offers customers more relevant information and enhances the user experience through true collaboration.”
