Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler himself, has asked Dave Kellogg, CEO of Mark Logic, for his top ten content technology predictions for 2009. You can read the article here.
Dave Kellogg's first prediction is that DITA will start making inroads as a document production standard in areas outside the relatively limited technical publications community. Dave's second prediction is that Microsoft SharePoint will continue to grow in importance and strength against other more cumbersome content management systems.
These two predictions are very interesting as far as I am concerned: I am the UK Authorised Reseller for DITA Exchange, a single source publishing and content collaboration platform for small, medium and large enterprises, which brings together the DITA open standard and Microsoft SharePoint Server. If Dave Kellogg is right I can look forward to a busy time in 2009!
