Working with structured content from a wide range of sources.
DITA is an open source XML-based architecture developed and offered free of charge by IBM® and OASIS®.
Content generation can be inefficient and costly when authoring occurs across different platforms and territories.
A potential solution is to migrate to a structured authoring environment involving the DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) standard.
The DITA standard offers a structured description for texts, enabling classification of content into themed fragments called topics. These referenced topics allow texts to be used multiple times without the creation and maintenance of redundant copies. Topic maps let you arrange DITA topic files and maps into components similar to the classical table of contents.
Content managed via DITA is produced once, translated once and then stored for future deployment.
