The U.S. Department of Forest Services under the U.S. Department of Agriculture has perhaps the largest content management system among the civilian federal agencies. One obvious reason is its mission driven business process.
“To sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations.”
I was very fortunate to be part of this great success story. By November 2017, there were about 230 million contents in the content management system accessed by 43,000 users across the country. It gave an insight into challenges of data loading from disparate systems, folder structures, roles, search, architecture modeling, security, retention, trash, backup, recovery, and auditing to name the few.
You will find our research and experience in managing very large content system reflected in the product design. Some key takeaways are National Archives retention policy, DoD’s STIG guidelines, enhanced security, modular design, predictive search to name the few.
I hope you would enjoy the product for its simplicity, agility, collaboration, and security. Above all, the significant cost saving when compared with other COTS products.
