Can We Use GIT Instead? Making the Business Case for a CCMS Investment

Co-presented with Christi Guzik

Have you heard a variation of “Let’s use Git” from someone in management when discussing a CCMS solution for your technical content? Are you afraid of justifying the cost associated with proposing a CCMS solution to your upper management? Join Christi Guzik and Deb Bissantz as they share their experiences and resources from considering GIT as a documentation repository and how they successfully argued for a CCMS through building a strong implementation case.

You’ll learn the pros and cons of Git as a content repository for technical content. After looking at these pros and cons, you’ll dive deeper into the benefits of a CCMS solution, including those that are not readily apparent at the first glance. From this information, you’ll learn how to make a solid business case for a CMMS investment using a case study of how one technical content team convinced stakeholders and upper management that an investment in a CCMS was the best solution.
