DITAworks allows you to update the structure and presentation of an entire information set by applying a consistent, core transformation. You can generate customized outputs for print versus online, or for different markets or branding requirements, without having to edit and adjust the source each time.
DITAworks establishes a single-source for the documentation allowing to create information in topics or versions that can be authored and approved individually, then easily pulled into documents, studies, and other materials, improving the overall efficiency of the process.
DITAworks supports the separation of structure, layout and content. Thanks to this, the content authoring, review, and approval process is enhanced and streamlined, creating a standard for your documentation, as well as keeping it easy to follow.
Due to content reuse a significant reduce in time required to produce and maintain the documentation is observed. The process of making a change and subsequently publishing a document is greatly diminished, making a faster delivery to the desired audience.
DITAworks Helps To
One of the major benefits of DITAworks is how easy it is to manage very large number of different documents. No longer will you have to search for individual revisions of a document when you want something changed across the board. Forget about carefully perusing each paragraph trying to eliminate discrepancies between versions; with DITAworks you need only change the core content once and the changes made will automatically be applied to all existing versions.
Portable through standards
Using DITAworks, product groups and external business partners can easily share and exchange content. Third parties can use common transformation and presentation models with DITA, or create specialized processing to offer views and presentation of content that is company- or brand-specific, or to transform content for reuse between DITA and other XML formats.
You can reuse topics in different collections using maps, and you can reuse content between topics as well, maintaining common elements like definitions, warnings, and product names in a central place. With DITAworks, writers can assemble topics about a specific set of issues and publish them as unique on-demand deliverables. Reusable components are at your fingertips. Dynamically changing content is supported by variables that can even be fed from your business systems.
