Ann Rockley writes about the three R’s of content management. To paraphrase,
When people think about content management, they generally are focusing on tools and technology. Information architecture also is about designing processes to create, review, and publish content. To meet authors’ and customers’ needs it also requires content designed for reuse, retrieval, and delivery.
The three R’s? They are Reuse, Retrieval, and Routable.
She further states,
There are a number of components of information architecture that are key in building a solid base for a content management implementation. They include:
- content models,
- granularity of content,
- reuse architecture,
- repository architecture,
- reuse management,
In her article, Rockley quotes Lou Rosenfeld,
Authors and end users alike benefit from intelligent design and well-organized processes.
