Over the past decade, the process of adopting DITA has changed significantly. Before, organizations faced few roadblocks when it came to adopting structured content in a DITA-based ecosystem. This can be attributed to the maturation of DITA-focused products like oXygen, and the increased adoption of Git as a content platform. Both remove many of the added costs that come with implementing DITA in a sophisticated and elegant way.

Whether DITA is the final destination, or a stop along the way to a long-term CCMS transition, an open-source DITA toolchain is a valuable asset in achieving a sophisticated content strategy. In this webinar, you’ll learn how information design, scalable repository design, process, and effective use of Git and oXygen can offer more than just a short-term solution. Expect to discover Git’s shortcomings, and when to implement a DITA CCMS.

This webinar features Ryffine CEO Frank Miller: a thought leader with dozens of DITA implementations under his belt. Frank’s career has focused on guiding enterprise clients and building an information development community.

In addition to partnering with a handful of leading companies in the technical communication and content management spheres, Frank enjoys contributing insights on new trends, and facilitating the adoption of best practices within the community.
