Chapter 11. Envisioning your unified con... > The unified content lifecycle

The unified content lifecycle

The success of a unified content strategy is dependent on the processes you put in place to manage it. Those processes are your unified content lifecycle.

A unified content lifecycle can be implemented in a number of ways, depending on the needs of the organization. No two organizations have the same needs, the same budget, the same goals, or the same culture. Everything you’ve discovered about your company, your goals, and your issues is used to design a unified content lifecycle that will work for you.

Refer to Chapter 14, “Designing workflow” and Chapter 20, “The role of content management” for more information on the processes for managing your content.

Addressing challenges

Your new content lifecycle should address the challenges in your organization—issues that you identified during your analyses of processes and content. Table 11.1 shows some common issues, their requirements in a unified content lifecycle, and the phase where the challenge should be addressed. Challenges are grouped into categories such as issues related to content use, content authoring, localization, and so on.
