Rather than use IT staff for Web publishing, use them to develop Web applications. For 
instance, IT staff could be used to connect an organization s Web site with a database.   
The online bookstore at Amazon.com is an example of a Web site that includes this type 
of Web application:  
1. Customer

Building a site like this still requires a Site Coordinator and a Web-savvy Graphic 
Designer. However, the team building and maintaining it should contain mostly IT staff. 
The Site Coordinator organizes the site content and work, the Graphic Designer designs 
the site s look and templates, and IT staff build the site s functionality.
