Bluestream Database Software Corp. is pleased to announce the release of version 4.0 of the XDocs CCMS. XDocs 4.0 delivers some major updates to the system, which authors, handles, and publishes DITA and other content in both source and target languages.
DCL and Bluestream Database Software are pleased to host Jeff Engle of Xerox Global Services for this DCL Learning Series Webinar, “DITA: The Xerox Enterprise Approach.” We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday, June 19 as Jeff explains the good, bad, and ugly of implementing DITA—first at the departmental level and then across the enterprise.
Xerox was able to cut development time and achieve over 588% content reuse in technical publications. Jeff will discuss how those experiences were leveraged to implement a HR content management system based on DITA that boasted a 500% reuse of content, as well as implementing DITA for learning content.
Bluestream announced today the presentation of an upcoming webinar from Bluestream CTO Jim Tivy on Monday, May 20.
In “How to squeeze the maximum value from your terminology,” Jim will explore the use of terminology for authors and readers showing how DITA and DITA-enabled tools can exploit terminology to its fullest potential.
