Session 2 — [PayPal Case Study] Information-Enablement at a Global Scale

In this case study, Lucie HydeKasie LenzKate Thomas, and Paul Pardi share how PayPal, the global leader in online payment operations, is enabling exceptional content experiences for customers. You will hear about the governance model that enables the company to scale operations (spoiler: it is built on trust!) and how PayPal is separating content from code to deliver service-enabling personalization, A/B testing, and localization. Hear too about the challenges of delivering user-centered technical documentation when priorities are ambiguous, and requirements rarely defined. The presenters will take questions from the audience about their project.
