Technical Communications Specialist
A Technical Communications Specialist is usually someone with a background in technical writing who is enlisted to refine initial drafts of service profiles and associated service contract and metadata.
The responsibility of this role is to express discoverability information in plain English, using standard vocabularies so that a range of project team members can effectively query and understand service contracts and associated profiles. This makes information published about a service accessible to a broader range of project team members and reduces risk associated with misinterpretation and inadvertent non-discovery.
