"In my experience and from observation of the CMS business, institutions tend to implement single system content management solutions that operate from a central point and build large or closely related groups of web sites that seem to unsuitable for units at some remove from the centre. HE these are research centres and specialist groups who although small are numerous and have significant external profiles in total.
Through the use of the Galaxy tool form Jadu we at Leeds intend to provide a packaged service that will allow non-technical staff to administer small to medium scaled web sites that will allow them to communicate without the need for specialist staff.
The need to support small and specialised web sites is seen as a considerable burden our institution and we are using this product to enhance an existing web hosting service with a CMS Hosting Service that we will promote as an economic and effective tool for web publishing. We expect the number of sites using this service to be in the hundreds. This should allow the redirection of resources towards more specialist web development."
