Displaying Assets for Business Offerings Based on User Context

When providing access to the assets related to business offerings, it is common

practice to create a standard layout that is displayed through a wiki or other web page.

The layout of the display is usually designed to support the needs of a specific user

context (for example, telesales), business case, or use case. For a complex global

company with offerings that are supported by diverse communities and unique needs,

this creates some difficult challenges. Each community (based on geography and role)

needs a different set of assets featured. Usually, this means either:

more difficult to find and reuse, or
2. Each community launches their own website making it difficult to deploy and

update new content or maintain existing content.

Current practice either creates W3 pages with hardcoded links to assets or sometimes
