Complete Content Management Implementation
Certain deployment services must be provided to insure a successful
deployment of NovusCMS. These are required services. Other services can
be provided if needed and these are optional services.
Project Manager and QA – During deployment, a project manager
is provided as part of your software cost for the purpose of preparing
the software for shipment. However, if you purchase other services the project manager will oversee that work.
If you handle all the services listed below on your own, you will not
require any project management services from us.
Web Site Analysis and Structure – Planning must be done to prepare a
full site plan for the web site. This involves a careful analysis of
your current web site structure with some thought on how to restructure
the web site. Restructuring the web site for use in a content
management solution will be required. The restructuring plan should
consider concepts that come into play when you are using a content
• What should be the global navigational plan?
• What is the regional navigation plan?
• What level of design changes do you want local users to control?
• Who can edit navigation?
• What should the site hierarchy be?
• Who has rights to each sub site?
• Do we need regional administrators or just central administrators?
• What basic rights do we assign to certain groups?
• What do we name our user groups?
• Who belongs in each user group?
Once these decisions are made they are implemented in the NovusCMS
software. This task includes the implementation of these decisions into
the NovusCMS software.
Create a new Look and Feel – Your organization may already have a
defined brand you want to stick with. If that is the case, that brand

will be added to your software at no additional cost. If you need a
new look and feel for your site, to portray a fresh brand, this will
have to be created by a professional graphic designer who has
experience designing for the web. If Novusolutions delivers this
service, the process we will follow the process below.
The look and feel or visual appearance of a web site is the most
noticed feature. Robust, fresh content is important however, if it does
not look good, it will not do well on the Internet.

process that will help your team select just the right appearance for
your web site. Our designs are flexible and can adapt to just about any
web page configuration you can dream up.

port or transfer to NovusCMS. This process is referred to as content
