This presentation details the cost savings and additional revenue generation provided to a customer by implementing a DITA-based Learning specialization. It also explains the improvements and expansion of the product offerings to the customer.

This case study includes:
  • A discussion of the initial challenges the customer faced, including how to justify the project costs in these tough economic times
  • How implementing a DITA-based Learning specialization helped them to overcome these challenges and automate a number of prior manual processes providing a faster time to market for their products while saving costs
  • How they were able to supply their consumers with more consistent, accurate and timely information
  • How the DITA architecture has allowed them to keep the printed content and Web content synchronized and expanded their capability to provide additional, more personalized product offerings, thereby increasing their revenue projections
