Presented by the Center for Information-Development Management (CIDM) and Trisoft

NH Rhein-Main Hotel, in the vicinity of the Frankfurt Airport
Why should you care about moving to DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture)?
Dave Schell, Senior Manager at IBM and key sponsor of the DITA initiative, delivers the opening address at the DITA Europe conference. He asks us to consider several important questions:
"In a world of very tight and dwindling resources, why would anyone want to make the effort to move to a new data format for their technical documentation?"
"What advantages can a corporation, a small technical development team, or even one person working alone as a technical communicator gain from going to DITA? As a point of comparison, what advantages has IBM achieved with DITA?"
DITA, using a topic-based architecture at its core, promises to change the global face of information development. As a new international standard, supported by OASIS DITA Technical Committee, DITA is rapidly gaining worldwide acceptance among communication professionals.
Join Dr. JoAnn Hackos, CIDM, and Trisoft at our first DITA EuropeTMconference.
