Abstract: Public institutes often face the challenge of managing vast volumes of administrative documents, a need that is often met via Content Management Systems (CMSs). CMSs offer various advantages, like separation of data struc-ture from presentation and variety in user roles, but also present certain disad-vantages, like inefficient keyword-based search facilities. The new generation of content management solutions imports the notion of semantics and is based on Semantic Web technologies, such as metadata and ontologies. The benefits include semantic interoperability, competitive advantages and dramatic cost re-duction. In this paper a leading Enterprise CMS is extended with semantic ca-pabilities for automatically importing and exporting ontologies. This functional-ity enables reuse of repository content, semantically-enabled search and interoperability with third-party applications. The extended system is deployed in semantically managing the large volumes of documents for a state university.
