A changelog is a log or record of changes made to a project, such as a website or software project, usually including such records as bug fixes, new features, etc. For Sudden, a changelog is an important piece of our documentation as it is the primary tool in our approach to change management and keeping a project within scope. With multiple stakeholders and many moving pieces that need to be integrated, it’s impossible to keep track of how, where and why changes were made through the course of a project. A changelog is the one document that helps mitigate the dreaded phrase “But I assumed that…” when there is a question late in a project based on a decision made weeks or months before.
Sudden is very proud of the long-term relationships that we enjoy with our clients. The fact that most of our new business is based on the referrals and general word of mouth suggests that we must be doing something right.
A CMS is designed to simplify the publication of content to web sites and mobile devices, in particular, allowing content creators to publish content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files. Several web based content management systems exist both as open source (Drupal, WordPress, Joomla, etc.) and commercial solutions, but because of factors like speed, flexibility and economy, most clients are choosing the former over the latter.
Content strategy is the practice of planning and defining the entire editorial content development process for a website. For Sudden, that means we help our clients get the best out of their current content by surfacing more content across more pages. We also help them plan ahead for their future content needs and then propose a system that will allow them to sustain that strategy going into the future.
