DITA Type = “other”
Leukert provides an overview of why and how SAP’s internal financial guidelines have been transformed to DITA, showing an example of less-typical, non-documentation content in DITA. Attendees will look at the various challenges associated with involving larger numbers of non-authors into the content creation process in a DITA environment and what specific accommodations SAP has made in terms of conversion, specialization, editing features, and output adjustments.
What can the audience expect to learn?
Attendees gain a method for evaluating similar cases in their own companies and understand the specific challenges associated with bringing content to DITA that is not owned by technical writers.
