Abstract

Disclosed are a system, program, and product to make the content management system and the associated user interface (i.e., control system) a dynamic compliance-aware tool. This system, program, and product enforce the standards, guidelines, and policies on the Internet, intranet, and digital content when the content is being authored or created and ensure that the content is compliant with and meets criteria for the defined standards and policies.

Adaptive Content Compliance Aware Method and System

The Internet and intranet content of corporations /companies is exponentially growing each day as companies/corporations continually share information among employees , customers, and partners, and reach out to the customer. This includes expanding the market, products, support, collaboration, services, etc., and provides the content to support the diversity and heterogeneity of client devices. One problem this poses is the overabundance of undesirable content. Companies need to eliminate content that is poorly written, inappropriate, and inconsistent, is negative to the organization, impacts the quality of the company, does not meet guidelines, etc. In addition, as a company acquires content, failing to meet accessibility and copyright standards can result in lawsuits. Inversely, quality content (e.g., proper search engine optimization) can positively contribute to a business.

As a result of the potential costs and benefits of legal issues , content quality, design quality, accessibility, globalization, and more, many companies have defined the intranet and Internet standards for delivering the content via internal or corporate

websites (note Internet-wide standards/guidelines are also very common). The companies may have defined the guidelines and policies for authoring content . The companies establish the brand and support the consistency across the brand by using the standards. The quality of content relies on guidelines and policies . Typically, the standards, policies, and guidelines are in a static form that the employees of the company must follow when authoring and publishing the content ; however, the challenge is managing the high number of standards and guidelines of which developers and content owners need to be aware and compliant . This challenge is exacerbated with the growth of web 2.0/social media.

Existing approaches to simplifying standards compliance have a number of limiting features. Because the standards, policies, and guidelines information is static, the current content management system or interface may not be aware or intelligent enough determine whether the employee or content author followed the standards . Some systems may include some built-in compliance, but do not alert a user to potential violations. Furthermore, no social tool reviews content issues (e.g., copyright infringement) and immediately alerts the editor as to potential problems . Existing tools cannot rapidly add new standards into the code and often require special knowledge of the tool to create custom standards. Most of these systems are designed to catch issues at, or right before, publication. This can be less desirable than alerting the user to violations during content/web page creation. Existing approaches are also limited in that project tracking, accessibility testing, design testing, and compliance exceptions are often separate systems.

Furthermore, the existing control s...
