Why Sitecore Content Hub™ is the best tool to solve today’s content crisis?

Content Hub

There is a large amount of content that is being produced by multiple departments of the same organization. This difficulty in generating this content is brought about by various departments using multiple tools, disjointed systems, convoluted processes with the inability to collaborate, plus poor visibility into how the content is performing. The challenge in generating content efficiently, coupled with the huge demand for it, has led to today’s content crisis.

In addition, a staggering 79.3 per cent said that lack of integration between their organization’s content management system and core business applications was a real stumbling block.

And finally, 70.5 per cent said that scaling out information management systems to other processes beyond its original deployment was also proving an impasse. To solve the problem of content crisis, organizations need to effectively plan, deliver and monitor content across all the touch points. This is where content hub solves the problem of content crisis and content duplication.

Sitecore Content Hub integrates digital asset management with digital rights management, marketing resource management, content marketing, and product content management in a single collaborative platform, enabling the entire marketing department to work in synergy, not isolated in silos:

Content Hub

  • They need to streamline their processes for strategizing, planning, creating, approving and publishing content across all channels – and be able to manage these processes and workflows.
  • To support these streamlined processes, they need one unified platform so that time, energy, and resources are not wasted trying to locate the right version of the right asset that needs to be created, reviewed, approved, or published to the right channel at the right time.
  • They need to be able to work together, understanding what team member is doing at any given point of the project, not in a vacuum throwing content “over the wall” for someone else to work on
  • And they need to understand what content is working - and what isn’t - to better improve the strategizing and planning process for the next round of projects

Sitecore Content Hub™

The vision of Sitecore Content Hub is to set up content creation and delivery as a supply chain – “The Content Supply Chain”. It's time to look at content creation and publication as a process, and then provide a technology platform that allows for the execution of this process.

And once content is built and approved in Content Hub, it’s ready to be shared in personalized and elevated experiences across all channels through Sitecore Experience Platform, and used to drive conversions with Sitecore Experience Commerce.

 

Data about how content is used and its effectiveness in engaging audiences and target segments is then passed back from the Experience Platform to Content Hub, where content planners and strategizes can use this information to better inform their decisions for what content to create next.
