documents authored in the Microsoft Office System and other applications into all of the formats users need, and stores the results—along The need to bridge the gap between Microsoft Office documents and the Web is of utmost importance when implementing portal and Web solutions. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as it seems. When it comes to the controlled authoring, conversion and deployment of content stored in documents, seemingly straightforward business requirements often lead to unexpected twists that seriously impact the long-term cost, usability, sustainability and scalability of a solution. Creating a successful solution requires good engineering in many areas, and overall the steadfastness to insist on maintaining important IT principles. First, the solution must use Microsoft Office as its authoring system—without add-on technology or specialized authoring techniques—to keep educational with metadata and security details—as Weboptimized relational data in Microsoft SQL Server. Accessing content becomes a standard Web development task that leverages Microsoft concepts like drag-and-drop Web Parts and Web Components to minimize the cost and complexity of custom development. Content can be

dynamically rendered into any format and into any taxonomy for any purpose, and can be navigated and searched at the topic level. The entire process of transforming and deploying content is totally automated, eliminating the need for extensive content integration projects and dedicated Web content development staff. Authors are able to use the Microsoft Office System to directly author Web content. Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server lets you take it one step further. Hyper.Net, the Microsoft Office System and SharePoint were designed to work together to create a seamless content authoring, transformation, deployment and Web portal development framework. You achieve a sustainable, scalable, totally automated Web content management infrastructure that is not

requirements minimal. Content must be available simultaneously and without human effort in various formats such as XML, HTML, PDF and markups for wireless devices. Content must be intuitive to locate, support configurable, multi-dimensional navigation and searching that results in highly-relevant hits, and allow users to locate the information they need quickly without having to browse through large documents to determine if hits are relevant. Content must comply with statutory accessibility requirements and be easy to integrate into any Web solution in the organization, including vertical solutions, portals and internet sites, as well as ERP and CRM systems. The entire content transformation and deployment process must be totally automated, tightly linked to the document lifecycle and easy to administer. Sounds like a lot to worry about. And if you try to implement all of that from scratch, it is.
