Put management systems to work

Agencies with automated content management tools may not have as much difficulty addressing recommendations in Web content management policies. The content management system (CMS) at the State Department's Bureau of International Information Programs will likely serve

officials well, agency officials said.

The new recommendations certainly will mean adjustments officials hadn't planned on, said Luigi Canali, the bureau's senior technical adviser, but the mature taxonomy in the management system being introduced will ease the burden. One area of concern was the recommendations that sites include five specific metadata tags on all home pages to provide a standardized system for classifying and searching the information.

"It's going to be a matter of going back and retooling the content management system to handle the metadata," Canali said. "It's very much an impact, but we're lucky to have the content management system."
