Many organizations are using SharePoint [MOSS 2007] for Document Management and Collaboration. SharePoint is much more than that - in our opinion it is one of the very best Web Content Management Platforms for an organization with medium to complex web content management needs - needs that span countries, languages, functionality customizations, customized navigation and integration requirements among others. It provides a very effective content management, approvals and publishing process to help manage a reasonable sized Web Portal either as an internal Portal or a Public website.

The SharePoint Content Management Framework 18. Page layouts Provide a template based mechanism with content and metadata placeholders that just needs to be filled in by the users without the need to actually format the content. Predefined formatting rules can be applied using custom components on the page layouts and allow for automated formatting of content. Provides the users with a self service based approach to create content with minimal interference of the web administrators or other people. Workflows Content approval and publishing approvals workflows are provided by SharePoint that will help in maintaining content consistency and governance These workflows can be overridden, or run parallel to custom workflows that are developed to meet the organizations content publishing and governance policies Publishing Publishing features allow end users to easily publish approved content to the one or multiple sites When multilingual implementation is involved, SharePoint automatically publishes pages and documents to all the sites, which can then be subjected to translation and re-uploaded. Content Authoring and Publishing Features 19.
