Content Type Management Options
A good SharePoint Information Architecture design will probably employ multiple Site Collections.
A good design will likely also include many Site Columns and a hierarchy of Content Types.
Every new Site Collection you create defaults to the built-in list of Site Columns and Content Types, and won’t include any you’ve made in other Site Collections.
So, how can you ensure consistency across multiple Site Collections?
You could manually create them – but this is time consuming and error prone.
You could involve a developer, and build No Code Sandbox Solutions to deploy Features that contain declaratively defined Site Columns and Content Types.
But this is a lot of effort, requires specialist skills, and the life cycle is hard to manage.
Instead you could use the Content Type Hub.
If you create Site Columns and Content Types in a Content Type Hub Site Collection, you can choose to publish them to your other Site Collections.
