Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right: Learn The Value Of Proper Deduplication

Content reuse is a fundamental benefit of DITA adoption, providing huge efficiency gains to authoring teams and helping to ensure the consistency of published information across an enterprise. However, identifying potential reuse opportunities and implementing reuse strategies can be a painstaking and laborious process. As an increasing volume of content is authored in DITA across authoring teams, then invariably more content is replicated over a period of time. So wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to automatically identify reuse potential across your DITA content collections, deduplicate topics and update conref libraries and ditamap? Introducing DITA OptimizeR, Stilo’s content optimization service.

Attend our Technology Test Kitchen at DITA North America 2020 for a demonstration of OptimizeR and learn how you can significantly reduce the amount of content that needs to be maintained on an ongoing basis and publish more accurate, normalized content, faster.
