Building a Web Site Team

Macromedia Studio 8 is a suite of tools that allows you to build the best possible solutions for the Web. The suite includes Flash Professional 8, Dreamweaver 8, Fireworks 8, Contribute 3, and FlashPaper 2. Individually, each of these tools is powerful. However, using all of these tools together gives you the opportunity to take your Web site to the next level.

Today, most companies recognize that a Web site is constructed as a team effort. Studio 8 is a collection of tools that allow disparate groups to work together to build a complete Web solution.

The first step is to determine the business need for constructing a Web site. Then a team is appointed to work with the business units, customers, and engineers to construct the solution. For a typical eCommerce solution, for example, you'll need a Web site, application server environment, graphics, content, and more. Once the team is defined, they'll need the tools to complete the assigned work, the core of which is the Web site. Studio 8 allows each team member to stay focused in his or her area of expertise while still producing content for the Web site.
