Content Management Systems (CMS) provide ever improving platforms for collective authoring of Website information. What are the opportunities, issues, and myths surrounding them?

No longer do authors need Web design skills, or have to wait for the Webmaster to post their information. Instead, they can use powerful and easy to use CMS to create, edit, post and remove content. CMS based websites may support a multi-national enterprise with mission critical applications, and huge libraries of documents. Or an entrepreneur can use a free CMS to set up an online ecommerce site, rich with online store, forums, blogs, glossaries or WIKIS. Universities use them for event calendars, on-line registration, class schedules, and faculty biographies.

But what are the issues? Does the "container" fit the contents? Does the software support the work flow? Will it rank well with search engines? Do the applications perform as needed? How do you plan and execute an enterprise level project?
