Analyst firm CMS Watch and consulting services vendor The Rockley Group have announced plans to team up on a new CMS industry report. The collaboration will produce the forthcoming "Content Component Management Report" and will focus on and evaluate Content Component Management technology, otherwise known as single-sourcing content management technology.
This is an area of the CMS landscape that has historically not been well understood, nor broadly discussed. Read on for the report details.
The new alliance and the upcoming report will assist enterprises in wading through the intricacies of choosing the "right tool for managing discrete components of content in a multi-channel world." The new report is expected to be available sometime this summer and plans to evaluate structured authoring tools.
In a recent statement, Tony Byrne, CMS Watch founder, "This part of the content management
marketplace has been ignored too long, and The Rockley Group is the perfect team for delivering the kind of vendor-neutral, customer-oriented technology evaluations that CMS Watch has long published."
Ann Rockley, The Rockley Group founder and President, added, "CMS Watch is well-established as an unbiased source for content technology and we're thrilled to embark upon this alliance. Today's agreement sets forth our promise to provide a new and highly valuable resource on Structured Content Management."
Some of the vendors slated for report inclusion in the Content Component Management space include: Astoria, AuthorIT, DocZone, PTC, SiberLogic, Trisoft, Vasont, XHive, XyEnterprise, Percussion, Tridion, Documentum, and Interwoven.
The report will also evaluate some popular content authoring tools, including JustSystems XMetaL, Arbortext Editor, FrameMaker, MS Word, and In.Vision Xpress Author.
