XML, DITA and Structured Authoring using FrameMaker Course Course in T. Nagar


Description
The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is an end-to-end, XML-based architecture for authoring, managing, and publishing your organization's technical content. DITA was designed to meet the evolving needs of organizations in the face of today's business requirements — for managing and publishing content for multiple products, multiple audiences, and multiple output formats... Larger organizations increasingly prefer DITA to proprietary document storage formats, as DITA offers significant efficiency and usability advantages. But DITA is not limited to large organizations; it makes good sense for projects of any size to be moved to the DITA architecture. This course provides an overview of DITA, its capabilities, and its possibilities for transforming your technical publishing processes.
