DITA Adoption: How to involve non-technical authors

A major obstacle of DITA adoption has always been how to involve non-technical authors in the content production workflow.

Bluestream will show how this can now be achieved in an intuitive web application that mimics the ease of use of wikis and Google Docs type programs. By linking this to workflow, authors can maintain complete control and have full transparency of the process as SMEs review, collaborate and create new content.
