Many organizations have turned to component-oriented content to create more sophisticated knowledge products, in more languages, at lower cost. For most organizations these days, component content is achieved by using DITA, the Darwin Information Typing Architecture.
Paul Wlodarczyk of Earley & Associates will explore the metadata capabilities within DITA and component content management systems, discuss two major benefits that can be achieved by using descriptive metadata and taxonomy, and recommend some best practices for getting started with metadata for component-oriented content.
Erik Hennum, Michael Harris, and Robert Berry of IBM will follow with a discussion on IBM's processes for classifying content using these tools and developing applications that use this metadata to provide real end-user value and significant efficiency improvements for content developers. They will highlight the value of DITA-based approaches to taxonomy by discussing key features of the specialization and examine some of the uses of DITA-based metadata.
