WCMS Projects and Offshoring

When a WCMS project is viewed as an IT project, it falls into the kind of project that might be sent off shore for development. I still contend that a WCMS implementation has a strong IT component, but is really more of a BPM and change management type project that requires serious involvement from those who will be left to live with the system long after the programmers have moved on. Having the developers separated from the content authors by 5,000 miles and 12 time zones makes for a difficult collaborative process.

In Offshoring in an ECM Context, the author talks a bit about what might work when offshoring a CMS project and a few of the things to watch out for.
