Last week I was a guest at Verebus Engineering. I was invited to tell a bit about Content Management terminology.
As you know, content management is a development that can offer many advantages for the technical communicator but also seriously impacts the way we do our work.
With the arrival of content management, with it comes a lot of new jargon. Terms link Single Sourcing, Multi-channel Publishing and Structured Authoring. But what do they mean exactly? And aren’t they all basically the same?
During my talk I zoomed in on the following paradigms, their meaning and their relationship with the systems that are used (or will be used) at Verebus.
- Single Sourcing
- Multi-channel Publishing
- Structured Authoring
- Version Control Systems
- Document / Enterprise Content Management Systems
- Component Content Management Systems
- Authoring Tools
