About the Presentation
DITA has been largely confined to technical documentation teams for a long time. It’s understandable because DITA was made by IBM for standardizing the development of technical documentation. However, DITA’s inherent design makes it a powerful tool with huge potential for departments beyond just tech docs.
What’s more, these other departments are starting to notice the payoff of DITA for tech doc teams and they want to join the party. The 2020 DITA Satisfaction Survey found that 56% of tech doc teams with successful DITA implementations reported that other departments within their company expressed interest in following suit.
In this webinar, we discuss the exciting horizon of possibilities for DITA adoption.
- Where will DITA go next?
- What other departments will find DITA useful?
- How will the standard evolve once it’s increasingly adopted outside of technical documentation?
These are just a few questions this webinar will explore, but I’m not here to give too many spoilers.
You’re in the right place to learn more.
