Petra von Thienen, Fujitsu Enabling Software Technology, has been sharing best practice of using DITAworks in software documentation at DITA Europe, November 19, 2013
Stuttgart, November 20, 2013 — This presentation shows a practical example of how DITA with DITAworks is used for implementing software documentation projects in Fujitsu Enabling Software Technology GmbH and integrating them with the software development environment and software build process. Additionally, it shows an example of how the diverse opportunities of re-using content can be put into practice without getting lost.
The documentation team at Fujitsu Enabling Software Technology GmbH has been using the DITA Open Toolkit as its authoring environment for many years. DITAworks from instinctools was introduced in 2009 to facilitate the administration of large documentation projects and enhance the usage of DITA features, especially for re-using content. Another strong point to decide for DITAworks was the easy integration with the Eclipse environment which is primarily used for software development.
