The process of content management

Content management exercises and goals differ by mission and by organizational governance structure. News organizations, educational institutions, and e-commerce websites all use content management, but in differing ways. This directs to dissimilarities in jargon and in the words and number of steps in the process.

For instance, some digital content is produced by one or more authors. After some time that content may be edited. One or more people may give some editorial oversight, granting the content for publication. Publishing may take several forms: it may be the act of "pushing" information out to others, or simply approving digital access rights to particular content to one or more people. After some time again that content may be succeeded by another version of the content and thus removed from use.

Content management is an innately joint process. It every so often comprises of the following basic roles and responsibilities:

  • Creator – accountable for producing and editing content.
  • Editor – responsible for fine-tuning the content information and the style of transmission, including localization and translation.
  • Publisher – responsible for dissemination of the content for use.
  • Administrator – responsible for controlling access permissions to files and folders, generally accomplished by assigning access rights to user groups or roles. Admins may also support and assist users in several ways.
  • Consumer, guest or viewer – the person who uses or otherwise takes in content after it is shared or published.
