ABC announces Web overhaul

The CoreMedia Content Management System (CMS) will be introduced in a major revamp of ABC Online, including the flagship ABC News website.

Under the contract NCS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the SingTel Group, has been appointed as the lead services provider. NCS will partner with Germany-based CoreMedia to implement the CoreMedia (CMS) technology platform for ABC.

The new CMS platform will deliver a more streamlined editorial workflow, as well as accelerate the "time-to-publish", a process from uploading to the actual publishing of contents on the websites. The new solution will allow "time-to-publish" within seconds after the story has been approved for publication. ABC Online content makers will be provided with a customized, easy-to-use editorial front end for easy content publishing.

"NCS is delighted to contribute to ABC's strategic growth plans. By delivering this solution to ABC, we will help the organisation build a strong and robust online foundation for future web initiatives.

"The project is also an important one for NCS as it presents an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our capabilities in the media arena and to expand our presence in Australia," saidLim Yew Seng, Group General Manager, Global Business at NCS.

"We're delighted that ABC has selected CoreMedia CMS as its strategic web content management platform. The contract confirms CoreMedia as the logical choice for major organisations such as ABC that need to engage their web audience with more dynamic content and secure a greater return on their web activities," addedBurghardt Groeber, CoreMedia's Managing Director for the Asia Pacific region.

"Reliability, scalability, ease-of-use and speed of implementation are all major project requirements for ABC, so CoreMedia will be working closely with NSCI Australia as an implementation partner to ensure we help ABC achieve its project goals."
