Content Management within Organizations

IT Webmaster vs. Marketing Webmaster

Hello Friends:

Is it better to have two separate Web roles within an organization; an "IT" Web role (IIS management, template creation, etc.) and a marketing/PR Web role (content management and editing)?

Not sure if i understand it correctly but if you mean if its a good idea to separate template creation etc and content management then probably yes but it has its negative points as well

It might also depend on the size of the organization, the culture, etc, etc, etc.

I'd tend to agree about separating responsibilities--something along the line of technical vs. marketing.

So, sourcing the CMS, customizing, maintaining it, etc. would be IT responsibilities (though they'd obviously be working with some requirements input from the marketing/communications departments).

Actually administering the content, designing the content, and (even) template design should probably remain in marketing.

IT people tend not to be the best designers...

I guess it depends on your concept of what a "webmaster" does.
