Content Management
What is Content
Content management is a process and/or
software application used by groups to plan,
create, manage, store and distribute content.
 Content can include: web pages, images,
documents, streaming media, news releases,
 A CMS usually consists of a front-end editor for
inputting content and a back end system for
storing the content (usually a database).
 This content can then be formatted by a
template and displayed in a variety of ways.
Content Providers
Top News,
School Communicators,
Content authors go on line to create and update their own sections
of a collaborative publication (in our case the web site).
Accommodations are made for quality control by editorial staff and
tools are provided for workflow management.

multiple Web sites

to update content

and publishing process

What a CMS CAN’T Do
Make editorial decisions for you.
Decide or define what your workflow/approval
process should be. You still need to set policy
regarding who posts what and who needs
approval from whom.
Update many forms of media including pdfs,
movies, flash, etc.
Support all the bells and whistles many of us are
used to.
Doesn’t necessarily make it easier to update
