Resources for 3 key trends in content operations
We predicted three content operations trends that will impact businesses in 2024. The resources in this post will help you prepare for these trends, the changing landscape of AI, and more.
Learning and training content
Companies are investing more resources in their learning and training content. According to a survey of over 800 L&D professionals conducted by Training Industry, nearly half of L&D professionals expect their budgets to increase by 8-15% in 2024.
Though that’s great news for trainers and authors, that means now is the time for organizations to evaluate how their learning and training content is created, managed, and distributed. As the volume of learning and training content grows, so does your organization’s need for a strategic approach to your content operations.

Though the operational challenges of learning and training content are similar to other content types, learning and training content presents some unique challenges. The volume of learning and training content can be difficult to wrangle, as well as single-sourcing content for traditional training environments, elearning, and more.
Replatforming and restructuring
We expect to see more companies replatform their structured content in 2024. Though transitioning your structured content into a new system is a worthy endeavor, there’s a lot to consider before starting the project. Here are some resources that will give you a better understanding of what it looks like to replatform your structured content.
