Habañero's Hybrid CMS Solution Using MOSS 2007 and a Custom-built Extranet helps companies decrease the licensing costs of MOSS 2007 while leveraging the functionality existing in the extranet solution. The solution uses MOSS as the authoring environment and the custom-built extranet for the presentation content, and a screen-scraping tool is used to move the authored content from MOSS to the extranet.
The first phase of this solution involves the development of a publishing foundation and authoring environment that validates the screen scraping approach and ensures the tool is compatible with MOSS. This phase results in a production-ready authoring environment with two page layouts and a number of defined content types.
During the second phase of this solution, Habañero develops the publishing and authoring environment, implements the required features and workflow, and addresses remaining requirements, including training and sustainment.
Companies can realize significant benefits from this solution:
• Decreased dependence on IT—using MOSS 2007 as the authoring environment for the CMS implementation, other content owners outside of the IT department can create, preview, and post content
• Enhanced collaboration for content creation—due to the collaboration features within SharePoint
• Enabling of policy-driven control over information assets and processes—by providing a foundation for future document and records management initiatives
