OASIS DITA Adoption Subcommittee: Draft Statement of Purpose

Statement of Purpose for OASIS DITA Adoption Subcommittee

The OASIS DITA Adoption Subcommittee members will collaborate to provide expertise and resources to educate the marketplace on the value of the DITA OASIS Standard. By raising awareness of the benefits offered by DITA, the Subcommittee increases the demand for and availability of DITA conforming products and services, resulting in a greater choice of tools and platforms and expanding the DITA community of users, suppliers, and consultants.

By advancing the adoption of DITA through OASIS, the Subcommittee members will:

  1. Collaborate within the security of the OASIS open process
  2. Maximize message credibility by working on behalf of a vendor-neutral standards consortium
  3. Build on existing market awareness of OASIS as the source of DITA
  4. Leverage the combined resources of all participants
  5. Reinforce DITA as the result of an open, transparent process guided by multiple vendors, communities, and individuals
  6. Openly share content and coordinate program execution with other entities that share a common or similar statement of purpose on a worldwide scope

Scope of Work

  3. Host educational, vendor-neutral webinars
  4. Organize vendor-neutral workshops and tracks at OASIS events and other conferences
  5. Produce OASIS-branded primers, white papers, position papers, slide presentations, datasheets, and other collateral
  6. Develop best practice guidelines
  7. Establish liaisons with other organizations who may assist in building awareness or and promoting DITA in a variety of user communities
  8. Assist in coordinating promotional efforts of members, leveraging activities wherever beneficial
