New Technical Communication Suite and XML Documentation Add-on for Adobe Experience Manager Enable Great Experiences Throughout the Customer Journey

On 31 January 2017, Adobe announced the 2017 release of Adobe Technical Communication Suite, the next-generation of its end-to-end technical content development toolkit. Technical Communication Suite enables companies to create, manage and publish standards-compliant, multilingual content for global audiences. The latest version of the multichannel publishing toolkit enables writers, information developers and instructional designers to deliver discoverable, consumable and socially-enabled content to users on any device.

Adobe also announced a major update to the XML Documentation Add-on for Adobe Experience Manager, an enterprise-grade component content management system (CCMS) for DITA* based technical content, built on top of the leading content management system, Adobe Experience Manager.
