Content Management Systems have been used to provide authoring, collaboration, access control and other workflow and administrative aspects of building content for enterprises and websites. These systems focus on managing content, and have little to offer for structured relationships between content pieces other than hyperlinks. On the other hand, vocabulary management systems excel at managing relationships between terms, but are not optimized for the kinds of performance requirements expected of a CMS.

The presentation will discuss tools and strategies for integrating CMS's and semantic-based vocabulary management that can provide rich relationships to enrich content within desired performance constraints. The presentation will briefly outline:
• Issues involved in content management and vocabulary management
• How semantic-based vocabularies and ontologies can enhance content
• Integration of CMS's and vocabulary servers through RESTful Web services
• Architectures and workflows for managing and deploying vocabularies
