What tools does the iiRDS Consortium provide and how do they work?
iiRDS Open Toolkit
Not too much and not too little – the iiRDS Open Toolkit is the solution for getting first experiences and successes with iiRDS. Well-known technologies, intuitive handling, and a lot of knowledge in the backend of the tool contribute to this. The application facilitates the first steps and experiences in practice.
iiRDS Validation Tool
Some iiRDS packages generated contain errors because the export functions of some authoring tools or content management systems do not generate complete and/or correct packages. In addition, some metadata.rdf files are created manually and may contain errors. As a solution, a validation tool has been developed that allows authors and providers to check iiRDS packages for correctness.
Is there funding and project documentation to help get started with iiRDS?
The iiRDS Consortium is funding a limited number of pilot projects each year to help companies get started in the world of intelligent information. Applications typically open in the spring. More information on funding and the projects funded can be found here.

Exchanging DITA Content Using iiRDS
In the following, we provide a brief overview on the exchange of DITA content using iiRDS. The iiRDS Consortium is working to increase compatibility with DITA with an iiRDS plugin for DITA-OT. More information will follow late in 2023.
