Content management is the process of handling information within an organization or community. Therefore, content management systems have to provide generic functionality for generation, extraction, storage, and exchange of digital assets. Because of the heterogeneity and complexity of content, a sufficient semantical and user-oriented annotation of content is crucial. Although semantical annotation by metadata and ontologies together with reasoning support has been extensively studied for a long time, commercially available content management systems provide only basic support for semantic modelling. Conceptual aspects of content users and support of user specific intensions are neglected. In this paper we will analyze the mismatch between the requirements of content management and semantical description and propose a data model for content which treats semantic information not only as describing metadata but incorporates the data itself, the intension behind the data, the usage of data and the origin of data on the same level.
