IT company document solution

IT Company

Developers, are you struggling with document creation and management?

Mostly not updated
Left as it is old
API reference is not read
Not utilized...
In IT companies, the number of companies with such concerns is increasing.

While refreshing or considering a new document platform, there are various platforms in the market, so it's unclear which one is the best...

Do you have such concerns?

The optimal platform varies depending on the type of document being handled.

There is no universal platform that can be applied to all industries and fields.
Therefore, a key perspective is necessary when selecting a platform.
Human Science supports the introduction of platforms that are suitable for your challenges and documents, without being tied to specific products, from a neutral standpoint.

Points to consider when selecting a platform

The features, usage scenes, and operation methods vary depending on the type of document being handled.
The required functions and specifications also differ depending on the platform.

Therefore, there are three necessary perspectives to consider:
"Documents", "Readers", and "Creators". It is important to capture the characteristics of each document from these three viewpoints.

Features Manual with a large volume of 1 book, the update frequency is not high, but there is a tendency for many separate volumes. There are also cases where field staff refer to paper manuals or when a multilingual version of the manual is needed. There are often a large number of pages, ranging from a few to several dozen, making it difficult to manage centrally. As the content is frequently updated, it is necessary to provide the latest information in a timely manner. Frequently updated, a platform that is easily accessible from the development environment is desired as there are many cases where documents are created and viewed while working on the development platform.

Let's select a platform that is easy for developers to use!

When selecting a platform, consider which documents are the main target and choose one that suits your purpose.


Common Pitfalls...

  • The saving format is not standardized, and the specifications are all over the place...

  • Once created in Word,
    it is difficult to migrate to other formats...

  • The update frequency is inconsistent,
    and version control is
    not possible...

  • Developers are unable to monetize their work because they create it in their spare time...

What is a developer-friendly environment?

  • 1. Use open standards such as Markdown

    If only documents are managed on a different platform, it can be very time-consuming. I believe that documents also require management and operation, just like code.
    On the other hand, by using open standards such as Markdown and managing documents on Github, it is possible to significantly reduce the amount of management work.

    Features of "Open Standards"
  • 2. Updated with Headless CMS,
    supports various data formats

    Creating documents in an editing environment that is specific to a certain platform can make it difficult to convert them into assets. However, by utilizing a headless CMS, documents can be exported in an open data format (JSON) and can be easily expanded for various purposes.
