The content management system (CMS) is the lifeblood of digital publishing. It’s central to everything we do. Yet it is highly complex.
The International News Media Association (INMA) and the Google News Initiative (GNI) have partnered to create a tool to assist news organisations in the difficult task of selecting a CMS.
The aim of the tool, to be unveiled at a CMS Project Town Hall October 4, is to demystify what many publishers find to be a complex area and help them identify the most suitable systems to fit their needs.
Throughout 2023, the CMS Project followed a three-step process that involved identifying publisher needs, vendor analysis, and finding the best publisher/vendor fits.
