Selecting, implementing and maintaining a content management system is not easy. Figuring out which type is right for your organization, migrating content, and upgrading systems can all be overwhelming tasks that can have severe consequences if not done correctly. That’s why in addition to putting together this newsletter of CMS best practices, I've also reflected on our industry's recent loss and how he influences and inspires us here at Oshyn to help others achieve greater success.
CMS Migration Best Practices
Content migration is one of the most important aspects of implementing a new CMS and it is usually the most underestimated portion of the implementation. In our post, "Tips for Content Migration in WCM Re-Implementation", Oshyn's CMS expert Christian Burne discusses some best practices to consider at the beginning of your CMS implementation to avoid time consuming alterations later.
We all know that mobile is important, but do you have a mobile strategy? Should you create a mobile site or a mobile app? Before you dive into mobile, make sure you're doing it right.
