XML Documentation Add-On for Experience Manager

What is XML Documentation Add-on?

It transforms Adobe Experience Manager into a powerful component content management system (CCMS) for DITA content
XML Documentation Add-on for Adobe Experience Manager empowers authors to create content using any offline DITA authoring tool, such as Adobe FrameMaker (2015 release),* or an easy-to-use built-in web editor. The solution provides all core component content management system (CCMS) functions, such as collaboration, review, approval, translation, search, and reports for DITA content – enabling authors to do more in less time through efficient content reuse and powerful workflows.
Moreover, users can leverage its best-in-class, single-click publishing capability to generate DITA-based output for a variety of popular formats, including Experience Manager Sites and Mobile, PDF, Responsive HTML5, WebHelp, EPUB, and Kindle – increasing enterprise content velocity up to three times and accelerating time to market. It helps deliver seamless and personalized experiences to end users by ensuring consistency and uniformity in pre- and post-sales content, and offers complete control over enterprise content integrity. By eliminating the need for an enterprise to manage multiple CMSs and significantly decreasing localization time and costs, it reduces the total cost of ownership by up to 40%.
