DITAworks – The Product

Cloud-based DITAworks solution helps to save tremendous amounts of time and money which are needed to build the CMS infrastructure in-house or to buy an expensive DITA CMS. It counters the problem of procuring budget and personnel used to build a competent and comprehensive solution for structured, reusable technical documentation and to always keep it up to date.

Challenge

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is a standard XML-based architecture for representing documents, supporting content modularity, content reuse, and interoperability of DITA documents. On the other hand, DITA brings new challenges of content organization by increased complexity, amount, and granularity. A DITA CMS is a niche application, involving very specific knowhow and relatively high cost for purchasing, implementation and maintenance.

Solution

DITAworks helps authors to master the challenge of managing a DITA based documentation array by providing features like fast creation, link management, managing versions and branches, workflows for review, translation, and publishing.

DITAworks Cloud is ready-to-use: no need to install anything, just access the comprehensive DITA CMS via browser and start writing professional documentation.
