BOSTON, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Sky(R) Software Corporation CEO, Jorgen Lien, is a featured keynote speaker at the 1999 Help Technology Conference which begins in Boston today, and continues through August 28. The Help Technology Conference is designed to assist Help authors, technical writers and software developers who need to create Help systems, documentation, and online tutorials, for software applications. Incorporating these types of user assistance into an application improves its usability and customer satisfaction, increases productivity and ultimately reduces technical support and Help desk costs. The Help Technology Conference is produced by WinWriters and SOLUTIONS, two leading providers of training and educational services in the technical writing industry. This year's conference commences with a keynote session featuring Jorgen Lien, CEO of Blue Sky Software, along with three other industry insiders. The keynote theme is "Piecing together the Online Help Puzzle," and will look at the future of Help authoring from several different perspectives. Mr. Lien will unveil a new concept he calls "The Internet Generation of Help." He will explore the possibilities presented by combining the best of existing Internet technologies into an Internet Help portal that can be accessed from within applications. This idea represents a quantum leap in Help authoring, harnessing the power of the Internet to supplement a Help system's content and provide users with free access to a whole world of knowledge and support whenever they need it. This keynote session kicks off several information-packed days at the Help Technology Conference with over 40 technical sessions covering information design, Help formats, tool comparisons, and more.
