Why DITA-XML based documentation matters?


DITA is an XML based structured authoring system that increases the efficiency of content reuse, single-sourcing, and content management. Migration to DITA is required for any large, medium or small business enterprise that is looking to reduce costs in content management and handling legacy content, while enhancing content search capability for users.








Structured vs. Unstructured


Although DITA-XML based structured solutions may seem like a relatively high-cost investment at first, using unstructured documentation methods may prove to be a slippery slope towards costlier, ineffective documentation solutions. We can certainly help you assess your organisation’s existing documentation system and make the most out of the current methods from a DITA-XML perspective.
