Content Management Within Site

Sorry for the extended absence, we’ve had a lot of behind-the-scenes projects going on and not much for public consumption.

One of those is the handling of content management. As I’ve detailed previously, the Percussion CMS project is now pretty much dead. We never had the staffing support to host a system for the entire university. We do still need something to manage sites, though, so we will be partnering with CIS after their purchase of the Hannon Hill Cascade Server content management system.

We had training for it last week and we’re anxious to start moving sites onto it once the production server is ready. I don’t think we’ll start with – it will make more sense to tackle some of our smaller sites and use them to learn the system before putting the university system into it. At least we’ll have a real answer now when peers ask which CMS we use here at TAMU.

Hannon Hill is also used by several of the other system schools and agencies, so we should be able to get a nice users group going in order to help one another.
