7Re: CMS: What do they do well - and what do they still need to do
- Sep 24, 2003Tools like this (or Interwoven's MetaTagger) appear to have a great
deal of power to help categorize content. But they essentially stop
after the content is categorized in the repository.
They still lack the tools that allow me to export that metadata into a
navigable web site, except through <META> tags that can be utilized by
Perhaps CIS is different (we looked at Documentum until they cancelled
on us), but I still haven't seen the power to take that metadata and
taxonomy, and push out the structure of a web site. It's very
disappointing to see much of the information I need buried deep inside
the CMS, and no way to easily pull that information out.
(As for the comment on being web centric, I plead guilty as charged.
But I don't know that the need to be able to maintain a web IA of
content is any different than the need to be able to maintain any
other organization of content. The difference is merely the publication.)
