What is Content?


The intellectual information transmitted in or by a resource,
information package, or metadata; content is distinguished
from the encoding, packaging, or framework used for
transmission (Taylor, 2004)



…used to refer to any kind of audiovisual, visual, sound, or
textual information….(Mauthe and Thomas, 2004)



…the stuff on your web site. (Rosenfeld and Morville, 2002)


What is Content Management?


…[a] process for collecting, managing, and
publishing content to any outlet. (Boiko, 2002)



…is about organizing, categorizing and
structuring information resources so that they
can be stored, retrieved, published and reused in
multiple ways . (Hackos, 2002)


A Content Management System…


…is a software tool designed to manage and track the
location of, and relationships among, content at the
element level in a central repository.



…supports the creation, management, distribution,
publishing and retrieval of corporate information. A CMS
addresses the complete lifecycle of content as it moves
through the organization"

The Marriage of CM and IA


IA portrays a “snapshot” or spatial view of an
information system while CM describes a
temporal view by showing how information
should flow into, around, and out of that same
system over time.” (Rosenfeld and Morville, 2002)

Some other definitions


Information

is stimuli that has meaning in some context for
its receiver. When information is entered into and stored in
a computer, it is generally referred to as
data
. After
processing (such as formatting and printing), output data
can again be perceived as information. When information is
packaged or used for understanding or doing something, it
is known as
knowledge
.
