  10. 10. CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis <ul><li>What is Content analysis? The process of assessing the nature of the content on a given website. This involves determining: </li></ul><ul><li>The depth and breath of the site </li></ul><ul><li>Total number of documents or content items </li></ul><ul><li>Content structure </li></ul><ul><li>Varity of formats of items included on the site </li></ul><ul><li>Identification of patterns and relationships between the content items </li></ul>
  11. 11. CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis <ul><li>Why do a content analysis? Content analysis lets you understand the relationships and patterns between the pieces that make up the site. </li></ul><ul><li>Often done at the beginning of: </li></ul><ul><li>A site migration to a new platform or content management system (CMS) </li></ul><ul><li>A re-architecture project </li></ul><ul><li>The task analysis and mental model process. </li></ul>
  12. 12. CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis <ul><li>Deliverables of content analysis. </li></ul><ul><li>Content Audit - A sampling of the site content to get a flavor and feel for the site. </li></ul><ul><li>Content Inventory - An all inclusive accounting of every page and asset on the site. </li></ul><ul><li>Content Map - An abstraction illustrating the types of content or genres of content available. </li></ul><ul><li>Functional requirements </li></ul>
  13. 13. CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Content Audit <ul><li>The goal is to gather examples of every type of content that is offered. It is not necessary to examine every content item, but at least one of every type. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>TIPS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gathering the sample should not take a lot of time. About 1 minute to gather the item and 2 minutes for analysis. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most press releases look exactly the same. Only include a handful in your audit. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High volume sites (such as a news site) with millions of pages make audits difficult. Focus on examples of the different templates in use. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be sure to capture as many “one off” examples as you can . </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Content Audit <ul><li>HOW TO GET STARETED: Use the current site structure as a guide. Work your way down the hierarchy tree. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Visit each of the major site sections, capturing the top level pages. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Visit each secondary navigation page that hangs off each main section. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Start looking for uniqueness. Keep in mind your guidelines for how much to collect in each section. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Capture anything that stands out, grabs your eye, or looks especially interesting. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Gather all document and format types. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be sure to capture tools such as search, site index, shopping cart. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Note things that are broken, can’t access, or have errors. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be sure to go to the bottom of each section until you come to a dead end. </li></ul></ul>

  17. 17. CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Content Audit
  18. 18. <ul><li>A content inventory is a detailed, meticulous accounting of all items on the site. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It is very similar to a content audit except that you are recording every item on the site. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Used during content migration, when have to keep track of the status of moving data, identify ROT (redundant, outdated, and trivial), or need exact numbers for forecasting. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Becomes stale very quickly, because sites change all the time. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sadly, no good way to automate, though database dumps can help. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be built off of content audit spreadsheets or done in a database. </li></ul></ul>CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Content inventory
  19. 19. CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Content inventory
  20. 20. <ul><li>The content inventory is for keeping track of information about each content item. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Examples of information included in an inventory: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Content owner </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Person responsible for migration/updating page </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Current location in site </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>New location in site </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>New file names/URL changes </li></ul></ul></ul>CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Content Inventory
  21. 21. CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Content Inventory
  22. 22. <ul><li>A content map is a graphical representation or abstraction of the site content. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The content map may take different forms and have different uses: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>As a list of the content types/genres for placement into a mental model </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Illustration of the redundancies and uniqueness between sites </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Content model for metadata and database design </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Aide for communicating with executives and other members of the team </li></ul></ul></ul>CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Content Map

CMS Development Cycle – Content Analysis: Functional Requirements <ul><li>A written document, produced with input from client, which will detail the required and/or desired functionality of the website. </li></ul><ul><li>Goals of Functional requirement document </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lock down requirements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid mission creep </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Begin documentation process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Speeds development  </li></ul></ul>
