IXIASOFT Announces SAP's Deployment of IXIASOFT DITA CMS for Technical 
Communications Management 
DITA CMS will provide SAP with innovative CCMS solution to support
its DITA content strategy 
MONTREAL, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/13 -- IXIASOFT, the XML
content management market leader, announced today that SAP, a leading
provider of enterprise application software, is deploying the
IXIASOFT DITA CMS solution to manage its standard documentation based
on Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA). An open XML
standard, DITA is used broadly across the technical documentation
field to efficiently write, manage and publish information. 
In an effort to optimize, align, and unify all product documentation
into a single, consolidated content management solution (CCMS), SAP
is currently deploying the IXIASOFT DITA CMS across its Technology
and Innovation Platform (TIP) organization to produce and manage its
documentation for solutions including the SAP NetWeaver(R) technology
platform, SAP(R) BusinessObjects(TM) business intelligence analytics
solutions, and the SAP HANA(R) platform. With growing numbers and
types of products and delivery platforms to manage, SAP has been
working on a documentation strategy to improve the quality and
consistency of its documentation, enhance team collaboration, and
improve overall efficiencies in documentation processes.  
"We selected DITA CMS from IXIASOFT because we felt that it was truly
designed to support the DITA standard," said Sven Leukert, vice
president, Knowledge Management, SAP. "We also believe that using
DITA combined with the IXIASOFT DITA CMS will open up new
opportunities for SAP to deliver our content dynamically and to more
platforms. The solution also provides the flexibility required to
support our advanced product lines and multi-release processes. In
fact, we are currently using the DITA CMS to document SAP HANA, our
powerful in-memory database solution. We truly feel that we are
building a long-term relationship with IXIASOFT, and that its highly
knowledgeable and dynamic team will help us put in place innovative
ways to manage SAP content and deliver it to our target audience."  
"The DITA CMS was designed for large-scale installations, such the
one we are currently deploying at SAP, and so we are very excited
about this opportunity to fully leverage all the robust
functionalities of the system with an organization that is a true
leader in its field," said Eric Bergeron, CEO of IXIASOFT. "The
IXIASOFT DITA CMS will certainly contribute to the success of SAP's
single-source content strategy, and we are looking forward to working
with them for years to come." 
The first phase of deployment is nearly complete, involving
approximately 200 users from the SAP TIP organization located
worldwide. Also involved are representatives from other SAP groups
who are running pilot tests to evaluate the IXIASOFT DITA CMS
environment for their own stakeholders.
