    • Global Information Management, BluePrinting and Security A Toronto Tridion Users Group Talk Tristan Corry-White 22 February 2012
    • WhoisSenior Technical Architect @ Cognizant
    • Wut?!
    • Global Information Management“Global Information Management is astrategy that enables you to engage withyour customers, from brand awarenessthrough to sales and after-sales support,across channels and languages.”
    • More generally: The entire ecosystem of information management toolsand platforms in your enterprise
    • Such as• Web Content Management• Collaboration & Sharing• Terminology Management• Structured Content Management• Taxonomy & Metadata Management• Digital Asset Management• Customer Engagement• Audience Profiling• Web Analytics
    • O__o
    • Why?• Create content once• Manage information using best-in-breed platforms• Avoid generalisation and customisation• Empower and measure customer engagement
    • Or more succinctly...• To ensure that Dollars In ≥ Dollars Out• And Dollars In Month N + 1 ≥ Dollars In Month N
    • Very TQM
    • In practice• It means utilising each platform for what it is most effective at doing• Integrating information silos• And tracking how the content performs in the real world
    • For exampleMicrosoft SharePoint SDL TridionRocks at Rocks at• Collaboration • Everything!• Sharing • Web Content Management• Document management • Content re-use • Multi-channel, multilingual delivery
    • So let’s be friends...Microsoft SharePoint SDL Tridion Create a new Import it product Update it Re-use it automatically globally Collaborate Update it on it SDL Tridion Connector for Share it SharePoint Track its performance Link to it dynamically
    • The End?
    • “Re-use content globally,” you say? Indeed – write once, run anywhere* (unlike Java!) * in SDL Tridion :)
    • But how?BluePrinting
    • What can I do with BluePrinting?• Create local content items in Parent Publications• Inherit those items automatically into Child Publications• Create local copies (e.g. for translation)• Re-use content as widely as required
    • What goes into a BluePrint? Org Chart Taxonomy RequirementsBusiness Units / Divisions Markets & Products Information ArchitectureTranslation Requirements Delivery Channels Syndication Requirements [Kitchen Sink?]
    • But ultimately... Information Architecture
    • In this contextInformation Architecture ≠ Website Navigation
    • Think of a waterfallWater flows downwards through connected pools
    • Similarly Corporate English FrenchCanada Ireland UK US Belgium Canada France Netherlands
    • But with...•Multiple inheritance•Priorities
    • For example:
    • French content FTW! (For the Win!)
    • Thus: Corporate SDL Tridion Connector for English SharePoint Widget XCanada Ireland UK US Widget X Widget X Widget X Widget X
    • What else? Re-use workflows (through inheritance)Define user rights and permissions
    • Security in SDL Tridion•Rights•Permissions
    • But maybe most importantly GROUPS
    • And how they can be used... ... to make a single workflowprocess definition rock your worldwork for your entire organisation!
    • But first:• A right determines the type of item a user can work with. Rights apply to Publications• Permissions determine if a user can view, create, delete, or localize the item types for which they have rights. Permissions are set for each Folder or Structure Group in a Publication
    • And not a lot of people know that...
    • Groups are hierarchical• Group B can have a [member of] relationship with Group A• I.e. Group B is a subset of Group A• And so on: Group A Group B Group C
    • Which is nice, because you can do things like: Approvers Corporate Waste Library Service Fire Service Functions Management Approvers Approvers Approvers Approvers International Book Public LibraryFinance Approvers PR Approvers Award Microsite Approvers Approvers
    • Granular permissions
    • Generic workflow...
    • ... that feels customised...
    • ... through the magic of code!
    • ... 8 year old code!(If you’d like that in C#, I’ll be handing out business cards at the end)
    • And thus we see One aspect of GIM...... enabled by Blueprinting... ... and supported by clever security management.
