MadCap IXIA CCMS Add-ons

Enhance MadCap IXIA CCMS with add-ons from our DITA CCMS one-stop-shop. Choose from a variety of options including Dynamic Release Management, localization packs, and others.

Dynamic Release Management

Manage several product lines or author multiple versions at the same time, stress-free.

Dynamic Release Management (DRM) facilitates the documentation of multiple products across multiple release cycles. Most technical writing projects require maintaining different versions of the same documentation: as you finalize the delivery of the current version of Product A, you’re already working hard on version 2.0 of the same product. You may also need to document multiple products that reuse the same content. DRM allows you to easily plan, deliver, and maintain your documentation releases.


  • Faster Time-to-Market (TTM)
  • Optimizes management of large number of product lines
  • Allows you to author multiple versions in parallel

DITA Localization Packs

Whether you need to say hello, bonjour, salaam, hola, ciao, or ol, we’ve got you covered with our DITA localization packs.

Need to translate your technical content? We offer DITA localization packs of five, 15, or unlimited languages perfectly suited to start small and grow as your translation needs evolve. As you publish for different audiences and cultures, the nuances of content will change. IXIASOFT’s localization packs make it easy to flip from one language to another, whether you’re just starting out or running a global business.

This add-on includes the Localization Scheduler, which enables you to automate the sending and retrieval of translation kits from your localization service provider (LSP). Now you can easily customize how localization jobs work with the IXIASOFT CCMS.


  • Easily change packs as translation needs evolve
  • Save translation costs by only translating altered content
  • Deliver Agile content to customers in their preferred language

Staging Environment

MadCap IXIA CCMS includes a production server and a test server. This option is for an additional non-production server for further testing, QA or staging.

madCap Software provides two environments—one of which is for testing—but can offer customers an additional non-prod environment with this add-on. With more stringent IT teams, for instance, this is often used as a staging environment.


  • Ensures new upgrades are functional and seamless
  • Alleviates future errors and saves time
  • Reduces the chances of causing irreversible damage to the production environment

Miramo for MadCap IXIA CCMS

TGenerate sleek, personalized PDFs with the Miramo for IXIASOFT CCMS extension.

MiramoPDF offers a suite of applications that make PDF design fun again! There’s no need for developers to design or designers to develop. MiramoDesigner is a fully graphical desktop template designer that enables you to design page layouts, format text and tables, and choose from pre-existing variables (or create your own) to easily include metadata in headers, footers, and cover pages. The result is beautiful PDF templates without needing to know XSL or CSS. However, the MiramoPDF generation process uses a DITA Open Toolkit plugin. If you want to get under the hood, and fine-tune processing by editing templates or stylesheets, you can. It’s the best of both worlds.

MiramoComposer is a powerful PDF rendering engine that combines a MiramoDesigner template with DITA content to generate top-quality PDFs. Pair it with MiramoEnterprise, a multi-threaded job handler, and you have a PDF generation toolset that can handle multiple requests from multiple users quickly and efficiently.

The Challenge

Generating personalized PDFs is an important part of the publishing and branding process. BUT Creating a personalized DITA OT plugin from scratch requires a high level of programming expertise.

The Solution

Miramo for MadCap IXIA CCMS provides a powerful automated publishing software for structured data and XML.

The Miramo add-on eliminates the need for external consultancy by providing a ready-made user interface for configuring templates. Adapted for use by non-specialists in programming (like graphic designers), the add-on can easily be integrated into any workforce.

Key Features:

  • Integration product chain
  • Fully GUI template design
  • Easily integrated into the Output Generator
  • Expert product support available from MadCap Software
  • Responsive development team
  • New features frequently available


  • A seamless extension of MadCap IXIA CCMS

  • One dedicated and centralized technical and functional support team at MadCap Software, (no more dealing with multiple suppliers)
  • Democratizes the editing process of PDF templates in DITA
  • Reduces time and costs associated with hiring external programmers
  • Allows for the rapid deployment and update of solutions and content initiatives
