Going The Distance: Migrating learning content to DITA L&T while implementing a new CCMS

The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) is a global professional body for the insurance and financial planning profession with over 125,000 members in 150 countries. They deliver assessments supported by distance learning solutions to 70,000 learners a year. They’ve been managing their distance learning content in XML and a CMS for some years, for both print and digital delivery. But in order to fully realize the re-use potential of this large body of content and to become more agile and efficient, they have recently migrated their content to a DITA L&T architecture, and implemented a new DITA CCMS.

Join us to hear how CII planned their structured content migration, the challenges and benefits they’ve encountered, and the advantages DITA L&T offered them over other XML standards.

What can the audience expect to learn?

Through learning about CII’s experience, the audience will understand how to plan and execute a migration from structured content to DITA L&T, and a migration from a CMS to a DITA CCMS. In particular, we’ll share lessons learned about:
– Planning and resourcing the migration
– Content analysis
– Technical and change management challenges
– Benefits expected and realized.
