The Three Classes of Component Content Management


The three classes of Component Content Management Systems (CCMS) are Class 1, Class A, and Class Green. Each has its purpose and ideal use-case. None is better or worse than the other two.

This presentation will review each of these types and provide real-world scenarios (drawn from actual CCMS RFPs) where conference attendees will choose which class of CCMS is best suited to each. Eric’s talk will help the audience understand the characteristics of each class of CCMS, and help them gain real-world experience in applying these characteristics.
