Single-source content — write once, publish anywhere! — is the dream of many digital publishing teams. It’s particularly challenging on “”archipelago”” projects where different departments, business units, agencies, or teams each own intertwingled portions of an organization’s content.
As part a the replatforming project for the State of Georgia’s 85 agencies, we had to tackle the problem head on and developed several novel approaches for shared and interdependent content that’s owned by one team but needed by others.
In this talk, we’ll cover the unique needs that made shared content challenging for Georgia’s state agencies, the approaches we considered, the one we finally selected, and how we’ll take what we learned to future projects.
