Content Lifecycle

The (web) content lifecycle is the multi-disciplinary and often complex process that web content undergoes as it is managed through various publishing stages. Authors describe multiple 'stages' (or 'phases') in the web content lifecycle, along with a set of capabilities - such as records management, digital asset management, collaboration, and version control - that may be supported by various technologies and processes. Broadly speaking, the stages include content creation/development, revision, distribution, and archiving. The lifecycle processes, actions, content status, and content management roles may differ from model to model based on organizational strategies, needs, requirements, and capabilities. A web content management system can support and enhance certain processes because of automation, including document management, templates, and workflow management. (Source:
