OASIS DITA Committee

DITA isn’t just part of a job. It’s a lifestyle. As Sponsor Members, partners, and friends of OASIS DITA committees, IXIASOFT has supported the DITA standard for years. Our commitment to DITA runs deep; we’re constantly spreading our passion and knowledge with the community, and finding innovative ways to move the product forward.


As OASIS DITA Committee members, IXIASOFT remains at the forefront of DITA knowledge. We are active and passionate in ongoing discussions about the future development of DITA and how to disseminate DITA best practices.

We take pride in our customers, and are open to bringing their ideas and recommendations to the DITA committees for consideration. We are constantly looking for ways to evolve and better the future of DITA—for our customers and for the rest of the community.


The OASIS DITA Adoption Committee works parallel to the OASIS DITA Technical Committee. Their goal is to educate the global marketplace about the value of the DITA standard for documentation creation and management.


The OASIS DITA Technical Committee brings together a dynamic group of industry experts—the driving force behind the development and management of the DITA specification. Éric Sirois of IXIASOFT has the privilege of acting as a voting member on DITA’s Technical Committee. The committee is comprised of only 16 active voting members, including founders from IBM and current IXIASOFT customers. IXIASOFT is proud to be part of this panel.
