My colleage adviced me to get better understanding about the content lifecycle if we want to become CMS professional. To be honest, I’ve been searching some materials about all phases but finally I end up with not much clarity. So many people are suggesting variuos phases.
Finally I understand all are pointing similar things but categoried into granular levels. As I’m working in Tridion project, I could compare each phases with their definitions and I agreed with following 7 phases.
I didn’t detail each phase as I don’t know to elaborate these things . Please refer CMS Seven Stages to know more details.
