Presented by Nancy Howe and gg Heath, Information Architects, Teradata Labs at the IXIASOFT User Conference 2016.
How do you move half a million highly intertwined objects from one CCMS to another, while producing new content at a higher rate than ever? In this presentation we'll share the challenges we discovered, the solutions we developed, and the processes we used to migrate DITA content from a proprietary CCMS to the IXIASOFT DITA CMS. Teradata is a long-time DITA user, supporting approximately 300 deliverables, thousands of pages of content with up to 90% reuse, intense filtering, and translation.
The long and winding road of migrating to IXIASOFT DITA-CMS included overcoming technical challenges like bursting massive conref containers into thousands of referable-content topics, completely changing our approach to versioning content, standardizing filtering, and implementing a new translation workflow.
