FASB ASC U.S. GAAP DITA Application Is Live
For the last year or so I've been working as part of a larger team at the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), helping with the implementation of a DITA-based system to support authoring and delivery of the newly-codified U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the Accounting Stanards Codification (ASC).
I contributed design of the DITA topic and map specializations used for the codified content and also implemented automated data conversion from an earlier XML format used in the initial codification editorial process.
The live Web site is here: http://asc.fasb.org/home
I've posted some details about the project on the Really Strategies blog: http://blog.reallysi.com/2008/01/live-dita-appli.html
Update: I should have mentioned (but wasn't 100% sure of the details) that the CMS system was built on the empolis e:CLS product and the Web delivery platform uses the empolis e:IAS search platform. The empolis Web site is www.empolis.com. I was not personally involved with that aspect of the system and was not involved with FASB's technology selection process (I was brought onto the project after they had selected their core techology). The system integration and development work was done by Ovitas, empolis' chief North American integrator.
