IXIASOFT's latest version of the DITA CMS solution offers enhances search, speed and overall usability to manage technical documentation

MONTREAL, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/18/09 -- IXIASOFT, the XML content management market leader, announced the availability of version 2.6 of its DITA CMS solution. With this new version, organizations can further leverage the topic-oriented architecture of DITA and maintain their competitive advantages.

IXIASOFT's DITA CMS is a content management solution enabling technical communicators to author, manage and publish their DITA content efficiently. Leading organizations such AMD, Isilon Systems and Sybase have all adopted IXIASOFT's DITA CMS solution to ensure on-time delivery of their DITA-based technical documentation in a cost-effective manner.

"We are enthusiastic about IXIASOFT's DITA CMS, which has proven to be pivotal in our efforts to increase our documentation team's overall productivity. In fact, since our installation of the CMS in 2006, we have had seen an over 200% increase in content production while having the same number of staff."said Keith Schengili-Roberts, Documentation and Localization Manager at AMD.

Highlights of the DITA CMS Framework v2.6 include:

A new interface for search and search results - the solution's flexible search tool enable users to quickly find and reuse their DITA topics, images and maps. New features include saving search queries and exporting of search results.

A powerful relationship table editor - the most advanced DITA relationship table editor, with unique drag and drop capability to quickly create relations between topics, as well as a relationship overview feature to easily find everything a topic is linked to. Using relationship tables is a key feature to increase reusability. Information architects will love how easy it is to create relationship tables, especially when using the intuitive drag and drop feature.

"The relationship table editor makes it easy to create and maintain relationship tables in an intuitive user interface. Our users especially like the ability to easily find all relationship table rows for a topic in the map, using the Relationship Outline view. The drag-and-drop action for a topic or node and the ability to name a row are other features the Information Architects appreciate." said Anna Hartman, Technical Publications Solutions Manager at Sybase.

Enhanced overall usability - the new version of the DITA CMS solution offers a list of key features allowing an easy navigation within the CMS. These include:

- A dependency view ("where-used" feature), enabling users to quickly find how and where topics are reused.

- Ability to use an external diff tool (in addition to the one provide with the DITA CMS), for advanced xml-aware comparison.

- Drag and drop multiple topics to the map editor to quickly create maps from search results.

- Greatly improved speed of the application, combined with the ability to put tasks in background, allows better productivity from users.

"This new version of the DITA CMS enhances the user-experience by enabling technical writers to quickly navigate within the interface and manipulate their content freely." said Eric Bergeron, President of IXIASOFT. "By increasing productivity and producing cost-effective documentation, organizations are able to achieve their goals quickly, a crucial objective during challenging economic times."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
