Today’s marketers know the basics of website management but leaders in the field find it important to manage not only the content displayed on web pages but also the context (and flow) in which that content appears. The business requirements for a corporate website are changing from a simple application that produces static web pages, to an extensible platform that captures, aggregates, organizes, and distributes the content for interactive experiences.
Sitecore’s Web Content Management System (CMS) enables companies to deliver compelling web experiences. The website content management software separates content from presentation. When content is created, say a press release, a news story, product description, technical paper, even a graphic, photo or video – it is far more useful to have the freedom to present this in many ways, and not be locked into a single page structure. CMS software lets this content be re-used, presented uniquely to different types of visitors, throughout your websites. This gives you the freedom to add and edit content to your site without duplication and maintenance hassles. A Sitecore website is like a library that can be easily managed by reshuffling shelves and books around.
Sitecore optimizes the day-to-day activities of a marketing team – how marketers with different responsibilities, knowledge, and skills can work together to manage a website. By delivering solutions for four typical roles – the casual contributor, the product marketing manager, the web campaign manager, and the experience designer – Sitecore defines, structures, and simplifies the range of tasks required to keep content current and engaging. As a result, each marketer can manage much more of the interactive experience on his or her own, lowering the financial costs and time delays associated with depending on multiple external specialists. This is true for every key role in the marketing team, as Sitecore’s flexible role assignment matches the functionality to the role, delivering far more productive results with a savings in time and money.
