Business not Content: The Dispassionate Case for DITA in the Enterprise

Monday, April 15th at 10 a.m.

Sarah O’Keefe will present Business not Content: The Dispassionate Case for DITA in the Enterprise.

Sarah will discuss how to move from content-centric arguments to focusing on business needs. The business justifications for DITA include compliance, improving time to market, supporting content variants, multichannel content delivery, and avoiding vendor lock-in.

The session will focus on how to engage business stakeholders–executives, IT, and operations–in understanding how DITA brings value to the organization.

Getting Started with DITA: What we wish we’d known

Monday, April 15th at 3:50 p.m.

Gretyl Kinsey of Scriptorium and Barbara Green of ACS Technologies will co-present a case study, Getting started with DITA: What we wish we’d known.

ACS Technologies recently moved from a wiki-based environment to DITA to ensure that content creation processes could scale as the company develops new products. This case study focuses on the challenges that the core team of content creators faced when moving to DITA. What do they wish they had known going in, and how do they plan to use what they have learned going forward?

This session offers real-world experience to help companies that are considering DITA understand the realities of implementation.


We hope to see you at the conference this year. If you need an extra boost of energy during the conference, stop by our booth to get some chocolate (it won’t disappoint)! We look forward to talking with you!
