The DITA Project #12: Anticipating costs for DITA implementation

Posted in DITA, Technical Documentation by katriel on the February 23rd, 2012

This is a break from the latest posts about markup, but if you’re going to do DITA, you should also be able to figure out what it’s costing your company. ¬†I posted a presentation about estimating costs and benefits from implementing a DITA solution when you face uncertainty. ¬†Forecasting under uncertainty is a fact of life for most of us.¬†Uncertainty about:

  • how many products will be documented
  • frequency of updates
  • percentage of reuse
  • translations (if any)

Looking forward to your feedback on the presentation!
