CMS Phase 3: Implementation
Implementation of any CMS goes smoothly when planning and structure accompany the import procedure. Brandeis used the CMS Implementation phase to classify its websites into categories, and to establish a set of design guidelines to provide a foundation for site designs post-CMS adoption.
It was clear that some site structural changes would help get a site into the CMS (in terms of making it easier, later, on the content editor). Developing answers to these questions led us to develop import and creation procedures. We built an import 'script' - an illustrated step-by-step methodology for site preparation before using the import tool. We continue to refine and evaluate this procedure as we move forward.
