  11. 11. The publishing CMS challenge<br />Publishers need a platform approach across highly diverse portfolios – title by title solutions are not cost effective<br />Media sites are design driven, infinitely variable<br />So control and flexibility is required by editors and notfiltered by the web team<br />And buy-in from the journalists and editors is important, especially those coming from print backgrounds<br />Nevertheless speed and cost of roll out and maintenanceare key factors<br />An open approach is demanded, no one wants to be locked in<br />
  12. 12. The Webvision approach<br />Provides <br />A tool editors want to use <br />Which can accommodate other applications<br />Support for design variation but within a standard approach <br />With publishing flexibility, empowering the editor<br />One that can support fast, low cost roll outs and cost effective on-going development<br />Just as relevant for B2B as it is for B2C<br />
