A web content management system can support and enhance certain processes because of automation, including document management, templates, and workflow management. However, the absence of well defined roles and process governance will greatly dilute the effectiveness of any technology intended to augment/enhance the publishing process overall.

Web-based LCMSs are increasingly utilized across medical universities on an international scale. We propose an approach to the retrieval of entities that have a specific relationship with the entity given in a query. An initial candidate list of entities, extracted from top ranked documents retrieved for the query, is refined using a number of statistical and linguistic methods.

This book has received both criticisms and accolades, and depending on one's perspective, both are warranted. The best way to determine if this book is for you is to answer the following questions: Are you in a large-scale web environment? Are you using Interwoven? Is content management your job? If you answered yes to two or more questions, then you'll find this book useful.
The collaborative approach and the tool features described in this book satisfy the first two questions - the author has obviously chosen to illustrate collaborative content workflows that apply to large-scale sites, and the tool is Interwoven. To readers who work in such an environment and use Interwoven this book is worth its weight in gold. For the reader who has content management responsibilities, the principles and techniques that are presented can be scaled down and put to good use.
What I like about the book is that the workflow and techniques, regardless of scale, answer some thorny configuration management and change control issues that are unique to web sites. While the traditional data center world, especially in mainframes, have mature and proven processes, they do not apply to the faster paced requirements of web sites. This is especially the case in web sites because there are competitive pressures, marketing initiatives and other drivers that demand fast changes. Yet, there are opposing forces, such as legal issues, corporate image and systems management processes that counterbalance the drivers. The workflow and techniques for content management that the author proposes shows how to achieve reasonable speed in deploying content, while exercising the necessary due diligence.
I obviously like this book, but In can understand the frustration of some readers who had different expectations when they purchased it. I do highly recommend it to anyone who meets the criteria I cited above.
As the dot-com boom recedes in memory, Web site managers are turning to away from technological whizz-bangery and towards duller but more crucial work - like the task of simply getting content onto sites and maintaining it as cheaply and simply as possible. This task goes by the name of "Web content management", and texts on it are now belatedly appearing, a tribute to our newly pragmatic times. One of the first volumes comes from a computer scientist named Russell Nakano.
The term "Web content management" covers a multitude of jobs - everything from figuring out how your pieces of content work with each other (data modelling), to creating content (authoring), to getting it onto a Web server (publication).
Nakano's chosen title - "Web Content Management: A Collaborative Approach" - hits the mark in at least two ways. First, it shows Nakano is most interested in the team aspects of content management - letting several people edit content together (collaboration), letting the right people do the right things to it (workflow), keeping track of how it has changed (versioning and archiving). Second, it hints at the narrowness of Nakano's approach: he knows just One Good Way to do things. His book concentrates on a specific methodology.
That methodology is aimed at large and complex Web sites, typically consisting of more than 10,000 pages, and owned by large organisation who want to strictly enforce content rules. Such sites often need sophisticated workflow systems to move content from idea to carefully-polished corporate product. Nakano gives such sites the useful title of "states", since they require systems of formal responsibilities, rights and privileges. He distinguishes them from "chiefdoms" and "tribes", controlled less by formal structure than by informal agreement and social pressure.
More broad principles like this would be welcome. Most of the time, you read in this book of the One Good Way that's suited to a few big Web sites. Fortunately, in describing his One Good Way, Nakano still manages to illustrate many of the underlying principles of collaboration, workflow and versioning. What's peculiar is that these principles appear almost by accident, when they should be the core of the book. And that Nakano gives no hint that they're long-established principles at all.
Take versioning. Nakano's book describes a "WSE Paradigm", with WSE standing for "work area/staging area/edition". Neologism aside, this appears to be the standard software version-control system that smart developers long ago adopted to Web development. Users "check out" site assets, work on them, commit them back into the system and merge them together if necessary, all in a way that minimises the risk that a team will muck up the existing site or obliterate each other's work on the new one. (A quick Google search will find you a swag of documents on using the open-source Concurrent Versions System, Component Software's CS-RCS, Microsoft's Visual SourceSafe and other versioning tools to build Web sites.) If Nakano's paradigm goes beyond this old approach, he never explains how. Indeed, he takes pains not to mention the traditional version-control practices at all. He also avoids naming any software tools which you might use to implement his paradigm. There are some valuable lessons and examples here; they're just not as accessible as they might be.
A few chapters in, I began to suspect Nakano's book was created as a marketing and customer support tool for CMS vendor Interwoven. More than any other CMS, Interwoven specialises in collaboration, workflow and versioning for large sites. It is in some ways more a CMS component than a complete product. Nakano co-founded the company, and Interwoven's site promotes it heavily. If you're paying the $A500,000 price tag of a typical Interwoven installation, I'd thoroughly recommend "Web Content Management: A Collaborative Approach". If you have a more modest implementation in mind, Nakano still has something to say - he's just not talking right at you.
