Summary

IBM Workplace Web Content Management V6 is a key component in IBM WebSphere Portal Version 6. You can use it to manage corporate content from the creation of the first draft to the final Web presentation. You can also use it to design your Web site. Because Web Content Management separates the design from content, you can create content independently from the Web design and then combine the content and design in a flexible fashion at run time.

This article covers a wide variety of topics that the product experts have found critical to a successful implementation and useful environment. For example, you learn about such topics as migration considerations, content creation, search, taxonomies, syndication, access control, globalization, custom authoring interfaces, and performance tuning of various components.

This article covers only selected topics and is intended to be a guide to those who will be implementing Workplace Web Content Management systems. You need to have some basic Web Content Management knowledge to understand the information described here. See the Resources section at the end of the article for references which can help you gain that pre-requisite knowledge.
