How DITA adds value to the Technical Publications department
Shrink the Time Required to Create Content
Reduced translation cost is the top Return On Investment (ROI) factor to adopt DITA for global firms. Translate just the changed content and not the entire document while reusing content that has already been translated.
Increase Customer Confidence in Content
Content reuse allows your technical writers to describe the same concept or task the exact same way throughout your information library. Avoid legal liabilities resulting from ambiguous or inconsistent information.
Support Feedback and Analytics
Understand what content is frequently (and infrequently) accessed. Allow content consumers to leave feedback on content that is routed back to the content owner. Allow end-users to create custom collections of approved content based on their roles.
Broad Adoption of the DITA Standard
Originally developed in 2001 by IBM for software documentation, DITA is now used in Financial, Life Sciences, Manufacturing, Semiconductor, Telecom, and other industries. DITA is an open standard managed by OASIS and has a mature Best Practices community.
