Western uses a centrally-managed Web Content Management System (WCMS), Hannon Hill's Cascade Server, to manage and publish website content. Cascade Server will help ensure that information is accurate, relevant, current, consistent and easily shared among Western websites. The user-friendly interface allows individuals who manage or contribute to websites to create and edit content more easily with no need to purchase your own software.
Cascade Server is centrally-supported and is available to any unit interested in using the current Western web look designed by the Department of Communications and Public. There is no charge to use this system and ITS will provide free training and assistance to any area that wishes to move their web sites into the system. Because Cascade Server is a web application, you are able to create, edit and publish content from any computer that is connected to the internet and has a web browser installed.
For more information on how your department can start using Cascade Server, please create a ticket in the Web Support area at jira.uwo.ca. Members of the CMS team in ITS will meet with you to determine how best to use Cascade Server with your website.
