IDCMS Blue: IBM's Information Development Content Management Strategy

Presentation by Mike Iantosca (IBM) at the 27 May 2009 meeting of the RTP DITA Users' Group. Jointly sponsored with the Boston DITA User Group.

IBM's long standing commitment to our clients is to deliver the right content to the right person at the right time and in the right place. To that end, IBM has embarked on a multi-year development initiative to create an End-to-End Life Cycle Management system. The system, known internally as IDCMS Blue, is intended to integrate and automate IBM's Information Development processes and tools. This second generation system is based on a DITA-enabled FileNet P8 solution. IDCMS Blue will evolve to provide a complete ecosystem using DITA as the common currency and by applying robust workflow and metadata management that leverages the combined power of DITA and FileNet P8. The solution will encompass the full product life cycle beginning with a product's plan for the customer's total information experience and extending through design, authoring, quality management, translation, and distribution. The goal of the system is to not simply stop at establishing centralized content sharing across IBM's far flung enterprise, but achieve a high level of integration between processes, best practices and tools as well as enable automated interchange with other requestors and providers that are both upstream and downstream to the Information Development process. In this presentation, we describe our vision for this solution.
