There are many vendors that position their products as solutions to part of the system design such as eBook creation or web delivery. However, there exists no turnkey solution that will handle the demands of every organization since system priorities vary greatly by company and industry. Consequently, managers face a difficult challenge when designing and implementing these types of systems. There are three basic areas that have to be considered when designing dynamic content delivery systems. Content creation involves building a single interface for authors, editors and reviewers that handles multiple authoring tools. Additionally, content management involves storing document components, separating their content and structure from any formatting information to optimize re-use and facilitate dynamic distribution. Lastly, content distribution involves designing multiple channels to deliver the content to users including personalized printed pages, ebooks, tablet applications and syndication engines.
