HiMA February Workshop: Content Management Systems For organizations that produce new content regularly, a content management system (CMS) is a critical to effective execution of content strategy.
A CMS is an automated series of tools and commands that support the creation, management, distribution and storage of digital information. In one place, you can create original content, edit and proof it, publish it to the Internet and other outlets or archive it for later use. Best of all, you can typically accomplish all of this with a series of simple clicks of a mouse. There are dozens of options available for digital content management.
Topics to be covered:
- What’s a CMS and why does it matter?
- Content creation, management, publishing & archiving
- Review of tools and how they can help your organization
- When to choose a large scale enterprise CMS tool
In this workshop you will learn about some of the available options and how you should make a choice based on the size and purpose of your organization.
Our panel of experts will guide you through commercial and open-source options and discuss the skills needed, implementation costs, strengths and weaknesses of each for your organization.
