IXIASOFT Sponsors, Presents at CMS/DITA North America 2015




IXIASOFT DITA Experts and DITA CMS customers will present at North America’s largest DITA conference April 20-22, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois.

Montreal, Canada, March 11, 2015 – IXIASOFT, a global leader in the component content management systems (CCMS) marketplace, is proud to announce its sponsorship of and participation in the 2015 Content Management Strategies/DITA North America conference being held April 20-22 in Chicago, Illinois.

IXIASOFT DITA Information Architect, Keith Schengili-Roberts, and DITA Specialist, Leigh W. White, will present at this year’s conference hosted by the Center for Information Development Management (CIDM), along with a variety of IXIASOFT DITA CMS customers.

“CM Strategies/DITA North America is a wonderful event that we look forward to being a part of every year. We’re extremely happy to see so many of our customers presenting in addition to our own DITA experts, Keith and Leigh,” says Eric Bergeron, CEO at IXIASOFT. “It’s a tell-tale sign that DITA is becoming more and more widely adopted and that our CCMS solution is ready to support the documentation needs of any and all industries.”

Schengili-Roberts will present, Not just for software: How and why DITA has spread to other industry sectors. His presentation will address the growing popularity of DITA usage among non-software firms, focusing primarily on the semiconductor and medical device sectors.

White will present, Key Scopes in DITA 1.3. A hot topic among DITA users, DITA 1.3 is the next version of the DITA standard and introduces key scope, which potentially allows multiple definitions of a key within a single output scope. Her presentation will explain what key scope is, how it works, and offer several examples of how key scope can be used in both simple and complex scenarios.
