Enterprises must reuse digital content, recombining it in different ways for different audiences. Otherwise, they're duplicating work, creating inconsistent documentation, and making readers wade through irrelevant information. This overview by Senior Analyst Guy Creese discusses technologies such as Extensible Markup Language (XML), Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA), XML Query (XQuery), and search as ways to turn this "write once, generate many different views" goal into reality. Enterprises that generate higher quality information at a lower cost than competitors will ultimately prevail, and content reuse is key in reaching that goal.
