Transitioning to DITA—A team case study

KEEP walking the walk, ONE step at a time! – Joyce Meyer

As the saying goes, ROME indeed was not built in a day, because Rome was more than a collection of buildings.

All remarkable things take time. It all starts with developing a best practice of taking a small step for lasting changes. The best practices that I followed to overcome the challenge of implementing DITA CCMS in my team are:

  • Adopt the change.
  • Learn and Share.
  • Develop a Strategy.

My case study will narrate the DITA Journey of my team after the DITA CCMS implementation, when the entire team is on board, using the system as intended, creating projects and migrating old content.

What can the audience expect to learn?

This presentation will briefly cover the following and benefit users looking for best practices to migrate content successfully after the DITA CCMS implementation:

  • Background
  • Before and After—DITA adoption
  • Lessons Learned
