Information is expanding exponentially across the enterprise. Businesses are creating and filling corporate digital landfills, clogging operational processes without knowing their complete content holdings or the value contained within.

Imagine a world where you assemble a document like LEGO rather than write it out word for word each time. Imagine that content relevant to what you are creating has already been created and is now made available for you to reuse. With DITA, it is possible.

DITA breaks with our tradition view of document as linear flow of information across pages and instead forms a collection of precise, hyper-text based topics that are assembled to produce any type of content when and how it is needed. Now, instead of spending money to make content more findable, companies can spend money creating information worth finding.
