Attention to Content Deployment

If you are putting a new website or new area of your site under content management. The templates have been built, content has been entered, but there’s just one last thing you have to do: Deploy the new site -- text, images, script, etc. -- from your staging and development environment to production. And going forward you'll have to do it every time you add or modify content. Increasingly, organizations seek to separate content management, or the "development environment" from content delivery, or the "production environment." Under this approach editors and content contributors work in a staging or development environment which then publishes the content to a production environment. There are many advantages to this approach, but also some new challenges introduced, including the entire process of content deployment.
