Making sure your business is secure from cyber attacks is incredibly important. Not only do attacks interrupt the continuity of your business, but they also cost you huge amounts.
A recent report by McAfee suggests that up to $600 billion may have been lost in 2018 due to cybercrime. Cloud-based CMS systems are an increasingly common target for cyber attacks.
This results in a number of potential security issues, such as data integrity violations, unauthorized access to date and malicious codes and scripts.
Most CMS come with a fairly robust set of security features, such as advanced authentication, strict permissions, firewalls and protection against malware attacks.
Omni channel and Multilingual Support
A Web Content Management system that supports easy multi-language, multi-channel delivery not only makes this job much easier, but it also empowers local brand and content managers to run localized campaigns on the channels best suited for their markets while maintaining the global brand identity.
Empowering your employees to support your globalization efforts starts with simplifying the process they use to do so.
Using a content management system that is intuitive for the end-user, and that allows employees to quickly re-use branded components such as images, designs, and experiences, will encourage teams to take ownership of the local experience - especially if it also allows all users to use the system in their preferred language.
A system that supports straightforward approval work flows will make the lives of brand managers easier and will in turn support continued effort and excellence in the globalization process.
Testing & Experimentation
To further support your global teams in their localization of the brand into new markets, it’s crucial that they can quickly evaluate the results of their efforts and take autonomous action based on this feedback.
The easiest way to do this is to ensure that the CMS/WCM you use has built-in experimentation capabilities for easy testing of content and experience elements - whether on desktop, mobile, or other channels.
A WCM system that allows you to automatically personalize digital experience elements like campaigns, content, or product grids will provide more agility to global teams, as they can easily create variants of the site experience from one global system.
It will also allow businesses more control over the global brand, supporting globalization at scale.
Use a content management system that has a built-in analytics engine, so your marketing teams, content creators, and brand managers can easily spot visitor trends and opportunities for improvement in the digital experience based on local visitor data. It’s even better if the system can provide this information per personal, which will give you much more precision in optimizing the content served to your visitors around the world.
Businesses that run their WCM in the cloud will be able to scale their globalization efforts much faster, with development teams able to roll out updates to the digital experience worldwide with just a few clicks, while taking advantage of the uptime and continuous improvements offered by cloud providers.
