  1. 1. Global Information Management, BluePrinting and Security A Toronto Tridion Users Group Talk Tristan Corry-White 22 February 2012
  2. 2. WhoisSenior Technical Architect @ Cognizant
  4. 4. Wut?!
  5. 5. 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.”
  6. 6. More generally: The entire ecosystem of information management toolsand platforms in your enterprise
  7. 7. Such as• Web Content Management• Collaboration & Sharing• Terminology Management• Structured Content Management• Taxonomy & Metadata Management• Digital Asset Management• Customer Engagement• Audience Profiling• Web Analytics
  8. 8. O__o
  9. 9. Why?• Create content once• Manage information using best-in-breed platforms• Avoid generalisation and customisation• Empower and measure customer engagement
  10. 10. Or more succinctly...• To ensure that Dollars In ≥ Dollars Out• And Dollars In Month N + 1 ≥ Dollars In Month N
  11. 11. Very TQM
  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. For exampleMicrosoft SharePoint SDL TridionRocks at Rocks at• Collaboration • Everything!• Sharing • Web Content Management• Document management • Content re-use • Multi-channel, multilingual delivery
  14. 14. 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
  15. 15. The End?
  17. 17. “Re-use content globally,” you say? Indeed – write once, run anywhere* (unlike Java!) * in SDL Tridion :)
  18. 18. But how?BluePrinting
  19. 19. 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
  20. 20. What goes into a BluePrint? Org Chart Taxonomy RequirementsBusiness Units / Divisions Markets & Products Information ArchitectureTranslation Requirements Delivery Channels Syndication Requirements [Kitchen Sink?]
  21. 21. But ultimately... Information Architecture
  22. 22. In this contextInformation Architecture ≠ Website Navigation
  23. 23. Think of a waterfallWater flows downwards through connected pools
  24. 24. Similarly Corporate English FrenchCanada Ireland UK US Belgium Canada France Netherlands
  25. 25. But with...•Multiple inheritance•Priorities
  26. 26. For example:
  27. 27. French content FTW! (For the Win!)
  28. 28. Thus: Corporate SDL Tridion Connector for English SharePoint Widget XCanada Ireland UK US Widget X Widget X Widget X Widget X
  29. 29. What else? Re-use workflows (through inheritance)Define user rights and permissions
  30. 30. WHICH BRINGS ME TO...
  31. 31. Security in SDL Tridion•Rights•Permissions
  32. 32. But maybe most importantly GROUPS
  33. 33. And how they can be used... ... to make a single workflowprocess definition rock your worldwork for your entire organisation!
  34. 34. 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
  35. 35. And not a lot of people know that...
  36. 36. 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
  37. 37. 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
  38. 38. Granular permissions
  39. 39. Generic workflow...
  40. 40. ... that feels customised...
  41. 41. ... through the magic of code!
  42. 42. ... 8 year old code!(If you’d like that in C#, I’ll be handing out business cards at the end)
  43. 43. And thus we see One aspect of GIM...... enabled by Blueprinting... ... and supported by clever security management.
  44. 44. More
  45. 45. THANK YOU
