Just Another Integrated ECM/Portal Suite?
On the surface the Bluenog ICE Suite looks good and seems to be based on what every other Enterprise CMS, Portal and BI solution is also based on. The details are in the download, which is available now on their website.
It is odd to hear a company selling a fully integrated solution, when so many appear to be focusing on specializing in one particular product. It almost seemed like Vignette was one of the last few selling a fully integrated suite. Of course you can still purchase the three components separately, so the company is covering all the bases.
In terms of competition, considering their open source model, Alfresco and Acquia's new Carbon are likely stronge competitors who have the market already in hand. Not that it has to be an open source solution to compete. It will be interesting to see if Bluenog will make it in this already over flowing market. Perhaps the deep ties to Oracle via BEA will help them.
