Content Management (CMS) Today: Issues, Technologies, and Standards

A presentation at Web Content Management and Web Services Workshop in in Las Vegas, NV, USA by Aaron Gustafson

Most organizations have several existing CMS systems and therefore new systems are often characterized by integration. We now have 30 years of experience with content management systems and many new technologies have evolved. To succeed, it is important to understand the acronym soup (CMS, ECM, WCM, DM, DAM, CRM, DRM, KM, etc.) Our panel of experts will discuss the prevalent issues, strengths, and weaknesses, that characterize CMS implementations. Real-world experiences will be shared with attendees, along with a spirited discussion of the “hot topics” in CMS today.

Attendees will:

  • Examine CMS problems that other WOW conference attendees are experiencing and discuss their potential solutions ;
  • Hear real-world accounts of CMS implementation;
  • Learn how to get management to stop investing in an application myth;
  • Analyze the CMS community — core strengths and weaknesses;
  • Understand the critical nature of taxonomy development;
  • Gain insight into the collaborative work trends; and
  • Learn about Internet search and directory solutions
