We are releasing today the latest FrameMaker Whitepaper on “Why Adobe FrameMaker 10 is the Highest ROI, Lowest TCO Solution for Migration to Structured Authoring”.
Here’s a summary of the Whitepaper.
Content development managers today have a number of pressures driving them to consider structured and topic-based authoring. They have heard that migrating from unstructured content to topic-based structured content can result in significant cost savings. However, the Return on Investment (ROI) justification may not be clear. Moreover, once the decision is made to migrate, choosing the best processes and authoring tools out of the many that are available can be overwhelming.
This paper discusses the issues involved in migrating to topic-based structured content, develops a list of requirements that an ideal structured authoring tool should have, and proposes a solution that has the highest ROI and lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
On detailed analysis, eventually the whitepaper surmises that Adobe FrameMaker 10 is the highest ROI, lowest TCO solution for migration to XML/DITA and for ongoing development.
