Web CMS Migration Dashboard

The three-year-long Web Content Management System (Web CMS) project will migrate approximately 200 university websites from CommonSpot to a modern Web CMS that offers improved usability, accessibility, and ease of maintenance. The new service also will make it easier to optimize web pages for search engines, making it more likely that OHIO pages will appear near the top of relevant Internet searches. Finally, the project will encourage digital marketing efforts and facilitate consistent branding across the institution.

Web CMS migration started in August of 2017. We will update this dashboard as we move sites on the prioritized migration list from CommonSpot to the new Web CMS. If you would like to receive monthly project updates, contact the IT Service Desk and ask to be added to the Web CMS News mailing list.
