2013 Do We Need a Content Management System? Where Do We Start?
This panel will delve into content management systems and the practicalities of implementing them from technological and production standpoints. Panelists will provide an overview of CMS: what it is, who needs one, and how it can improve workflow efficiencies; will discuss lessons learned and challenges faced in developing home-grown production management systems for both journals and ebook production workflow; and will highlight the differences between a CMS and a DAM system, considering ways a DAM can provide opportunities for aggregating and disaggregating content to create new products such as digital shorts, omnibus editions, and enhanced ebooks.
