Back-end designs and the CMS cycle of disillusionment
Categorised under: Content management
Adriaan Bloem has written a post on the problems with back-end CMS interfaces. To quote:
Over the years, I’ve seen a large number of web site functional designs, technical designs, requirements, wireframes and mock-ups. But usually, the one thing missing from the planning of a WCM-driven web site is what’s most likely to shoot the implementation in the foot: the functional design of the CMS back-end. The form & function of how the CMS will work, look and feel for the end-user of the system, not the visitor to the web site, is too often overlooked.
