Benefits of using IU's supported WCMS
IU departments and schools can use the WCMS for public websites and internal intranet sites. The WCMS makes maintaining websites easier for non-technical staff, and helps developers meet campus guidelines for institutional branding and accessibility standards. Other benefits include:
- Content is separate from design.
- IT staff can focus on site creation and maintenance.
- Content contributors can focus on creating, editing, maintaining, and retiring content.
- Contributors can use forms-based or WYSIWYG approaches; HTML knowledge is not necessary.
- Non-technical staff can make changes directly to content.
- Web standards compliance (e.g., section 508, W3C) can be enforced.
- XHTML compliance can be enforced.
- Version control and change history can be audited.
- Multi-formatted content is automatically generated.
- The client has no footprint; there is no application to install, maintain, or service.
- Content is centrally stored and backed up.
- Workflows can be implemented for change management.
- You can set workflows on a site or page-by-page basis.
- Workflows can ensure that high-profile pages are reviewed or approved before going live.
- Assets and content are reusable (e.g., video, images).
- Sites can leverage common templates for a consistent layout of pages.
- Dynamic menus, navigation, and breadcrumbs can be easily generated and reused.
- If you publish to Webserve, there are no web servers to maintain.
- You can publish to any web server for which you supply appropriate credentials.
- Service includes tiered support.
