DITA Today and Tomorrow12-Jul-12dclaboratory1:02
It's been over six years since the DITA specification was officially released by OASIS and people could start using the DITA Open Toolkit. A lot has happened since early 2006, as DITA XML has become the fastest growing information standard for technical writing. Mekon consultant Keith Schengili-Roberts takes a look at where DITA has come from, who is using it, and where he thinks it will be going in the future. In this far-reaching presentation Keith focuses on that portion of the technical writing community that has embraced DITA XML, explores why it has been so successful, and also looks at some of the issues holding it back from even wider adoption. He will also dare to prognosticate on the directions that DITA is likely to be used in the near future.
DITA XML as Neutral Content Source for Educational Publishers27-Jun-12dclaboratory10:04
Because it is no longer enough to provide a printed book to teach a skill, educational publishers need to create their content in a neutral XML source that supports multichannel content delivery. An XML architecture separates the content from its delivery and enables you to deliver a range of content in a variety of formats: printed books, eBooks, dynamic learning portals, and mobile applications to start the list. Although there are many XML architectures, the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) supports by its content type, including learning and training content.

documenting with DITA in Drupal13-Nov-10Pronovix9:59
In this video I explain how an organization can use a 3-step architecture to involve all the stakeholders of the production process in the development of DITA documentation. The architecture adds a community portal both upstream and downstream of the documentation team. The upstream and downstream portals can plug into the existing tools and processes of the documentation team through the use of DITA documentation topics and maps. As a result more people are involved in the process without having to buy additional licenses of (expensive) specialized XML editors and/or CMS's.

Cleaning up your existing content before converting it to DITA is important. Information that is poorly written isn't worth converting. First ID what you need, then clean it up to deliver a concise message. Once you get it into DITA you can use tools like XMetaL, Oxygen, FrameMaker 7.2, 8.0 and 9.0 and others. It is important though to ID the right tool (or tools) so that you can ID the costs to make your business case.
