Get your decision RIGHT!!! Guide to Choose the Best Content Management System
What is CMS?A Content Management System (CMS) is a computer program thatallows publishing, editing and modifying content as well asmaintenance from a central interface.Such systems of content management provide procedures tomanage application, content & workflow in a easier collaborativeenvironment.These procedures can be manual steps or an automated cascade.CMS nowadays are used as platform to build web-based applicationsbe it websites, portals, integrated applications for front-end or backend consumption.
Key Features in Enterprise CMSDevelopment & Product SimplificationCMS are affecting web application delivery. Understandably, the market favors simpler tools andmethodologies conducive to rich user experience and provide ease of extensibility and integration with othertechnologies. The simplicity of a software product ensures lower costs, higher reliability, and increasingability to meet growth strategies. With the open source market’s use of newer and faster development tools,frameworks and components, today’s enterprises have access to products that allows them to quickly evolvewith business needs while remaining light-weight, with built-in expansion mechanisms, like micro-kernelarchitecture and plugins.Unification of Presentation StrategiesThere is continual growth of new applications and services within an enterprise. A truly effective CMS shouldallow new features and services to be continually added into the existing portals. It must provideauthentication, authorization and role-based content delivery (RBCD). RBCD defines that each personaccessing the portal sees and has access to only the content that they are authorized to view. It is whatpermits an enterprise to offer one unified view without compromising content security or user experience. Italso improves user productivity, reduces software maintenance costs across applications, and increases thereuse of code, content, and policies.A unified presentation layer using CMS also allows for the creation of “micro-sites” whereby a single portalinstance can host www.company.com as well as my.company.com, partner.company.com, andemployees.company.com. Additionally, multiple portals can be deployed across a portal fabric in which eachportal can leverage a common set of data, content, application services, identity services, and portlets.
Key Features in Enterprise CMS (cont)Unification of Content, Portals , and the Application Platform In the past, CMS was used for only a portion of the web experience (e.g., website, an employee portal ordashboard) alongside a number of other disparate products performing other functions. Application platformswere used to build individual applications (e.g., using an application server to build a trouble ticket automationapplication integrating to an existing system). The simplification of software has led to a new strategy to unifyinfrastructures and technologies.Unification of Departmental and Enterprise-Wide SoftwareEnterprise-wide projects and departmental projects are often supported by different sets of software. Forexample, many companies use an IBM, Oracle, or BEA portal for enterprise-wide implementations and useSharePoint® at the departmental level. Likewise, they will leverage major content repositories for enterprise-widecontent while leveraging open source repositories for the departmental requirements. Quite significantly, recenttrends show corporations looking to service both enterprise-wide solutions and departmental solutions with oneproduct to allow for code and feature reuse and to share the costs of unlimited licensing across a larger pool ofusers.Unification of Developer Strategies and TechnologiesDeveloper technology changes have also fractured CMS software. For many years, PHP, Microsoft and Javatechnologies have contended for favor. Now, developers are faced with an ever-growing list of technologies anddevelopment languages to choose from: Java developers can choose between Spring and EJB, between SOAPand REST, between Java and PHP/RUBY, between DOJO Toolkit and Microsoft Web Wizard, and maybe evenbetween Eclipse and Dreamweaver. IT teams make these choices when planning their application infrastructure,but with the understanding that choosing one technology may exclude it from innovations available in others.However, because portals aggregate content at the presentation layer, they allow multiple technologies to be usedin the application layer, thereby giving an enterprise access to the benefits of each.
