Presented by Keith Schengili-Roberts, IXIASOFT DITA Information Architect, at LavaCon 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
What does DITA have to offer Content Strategists? Plenty as it turns out, and more than just content reuse and dynamic multi-channel publishing. DITA provides built-in content consistency, more efficient multi-language translation, and even the ability to handle a myriad of product and version outputs. The updated DITA 1.3 specification includes additional features designed with user interaction in mind, including targeted troubleshooting, improving the ability to add metadata to content—aiding with Search Engine Optimization—and linking across different deliverable types. From a content management perspective there’s also new metadata for keeping track of releases, branch filtering, and more control over handling a diverse set of publication outputs.
If you are interested in learning more about DITA and its practical implications from a Content Management perspective, or if you are just casually interested in understanding more about the latest developments in this popular XML standard then this is the presentation for you.
