Learn about DITA - Darwin Information Typing Architecture on TechWhirl
Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA), first introduced by IBM in 2001, is an XML data model that is designed to support a more structured approach to authoring and publishing content. DITA uses hierarchy and specialization, (the Darwin part of DITA), categorization of information (Information Typing) in a coherent structure (Architecture) that enables consistency and efficiency throughout the entire content lifecycle. While DITA began as an approach to manage large quantities of technical content, it continues to evolve to support other areas of the organization, including marketing, compliance and training.
