Re: Content Management ... was RE: Tools
I wanted to second Annette Reilly's recommendation of ISO/IEC/IEEE 26531:Â 2015. The specification is exceptionally well-done and thorough, and will inform requirements identification and selection for any organization that is deploying a content management system for documentation.
The specification is not inexpensive; approximately $100 US, depending on format and IEEE membership status of the purchaser. However, this is a trivial investment compared to the cost of a CMS. It's also a sound investment for consultants who support CMS selection and adoption.
You can purchase the standard here:

ISO/IEC/IEEE 26531:Â 2015 contains requirements for content management and for a CMS.
This International Standard provides requirements for the management of the content used in product life cycle, software, and service management system documentation. Content management allows an organization to control the storage and retrieval of content objects, track content revisions, maintain a content audit trail, and enable a collaborative environment. Component content management supports the reuse of content objects among deliverables and supports multiple deliverable formats. Content objects that are unique and are maintained as independent database objects are efficient to review, approve, and update; may be combined to produce multiple deliverables; and are cost-effective to translate. The standard defines the characteristics of an effective and efficient process through which content is gathered, managed, and published, including the requirements of a system that is supported by an electronic database.

Does anyone have a Requirements doc for a content management system that they could share with me?
