Delving into content management (CM) is entering an unfamiliar and sometimes confusing world. It’s not unusual for a well-meaning IT group of a corporation to install a well-respected - but inappropriate for technical publishing - content management application and expect the technical documentation department to start churning out documentation using the new system - and what about that return on investment they expect to see after a few months? Knowing the basics of CM is more than a protection mechanism; it’s a way of preparing for the next big trend in documentation production.

This workshop provides the groundwork for understanding how the guts of a content management system works, the differences between Web CM and content component management systems, some circumstances under which CM can be beneficial, and techniques for determining system suitability. We will also demystify the industry vocabulary, thereby eliminating some of the barriers that can slow down the investigative process. We’ll look at the process from input (authoring) to output (XSL) and all the steps in between, and the role of XML for capitalizing on your content re-use.
