Tip: Implement content-management systems in large, fluid sites
Some organizations have extensive Web publishing needs. They need to put thousands of
pages of documentation on their Web sites, or update hundreds of pages every day, or
enable hundreds of employees to post information to sites. In situations like this, site
updates require a content-management system.
There are many systems on the market that enable people to post information to a Web
site without touching a site-building program. These systems include extensive
permission control, ensuring that a person authorized to update one section of the site
cannot change other sections. They also automate the approval process, allowing remote
review and approval of documents before they re posted to the site.
Content-management systems tend to be expensive. They require professional
configuration and installation on the Web server. They also work best when a site is built
to work with a particular system, so it s best to choose one and implement it right from
the beginning of a site-building project.
