Speed Up the Delivery of Technical Publications
New challenges are putting intense pressure on technical publishing departments. The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is an emerging standard that can help organisations meet these challenges. However, DITA can be difficult to implement. It requires authors to create content in XML, and it requires integration with a content management system (CMS) if you want to take advantage of DITA’s most powerful features. To complicate matters, there are many DITA editing tools and CMSs to choose from.
This white paper considers the nature of today’s technical publications challenges, explains the benefits of DITA, walks through some of the roadblocks that prevent organisations from implementing DITA, and provides information about a DITA solution called Quark Dynamic Publishing Solution (Quark DPS) for Technical Publications.
