Last week, I received an email inviting me to take a sneak peak at a press release that became public today. In the email, I was asked if I would be interested in hearing "news from new open source startup, DRUD Tech, founded by a couple of long-time Drupal contributors". According to the email, the company has been in "stealth mode" quietly working on their new product which is ready for launch this week. Given that I'm a long time fan of the Drupal content management system of course I said yes.
We're no longer yesterday's CMS Report. Less than ten days ago, I started the process to migrate this website's content management system from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. During the migration I decided it was also time for a rebrand by listing the site under a new name and a new domain. We're now socPub and registered under the domain socpub.com.
What does socPub mean? Absolutely, nothing.
Several years ago, I had the idea of using the domain for a niche website focused on social publishing and neither of those two things happened. Looking back, I'm glad I didn't move forward on the project. Today, no one really talks about social publishing in the way it was originally envisioned. But also, I have too many interests to want to run another website where the name itself limits the topics a site covers. socPub has no meaning today in order to give us a chance to be a lot of things tomorrow.
Content that is produced online becomes a source of driving traffic. Online content is key to the success of every business. To be in the top searches and to be in the top trends, fresh content has to be produced that the audience loves.
Managing all of that content can be a very tiresome task for a business. For enterprise business teams, it can be close to a nightmare if they have to sort out content creation, scheduled publication, planning and executing. The content needs to be cutting edge and be planned and executed seamlessly along with the pile of spreadsheets and meetings.
This is where content management comes handy. Thanks to technology, companies have developed softwares that help businesses manage their content. A content management system is a set of tools that support the creation, modification and publishing of content online. It may store data on a cloud-based storage and support collaborative working environment. A system that manages content usually makes it easy for you to sort out publishing on web pages, manage formats, edit history, index and control versions.
