Vignette has seen better days. This period the company's Q3 revenues are expected to fall 10 percent (between US$ 42 million and US$ 44 million), a significant disparity from the US$ 46 million to US$ 50 million it forecast in July.
But life was good over the summer. Vignette had just built a hub of multimedia services
. Tides are notably quick to turn.
CEO Mike Aviles explains part of Vignette's current problem can be attributed to sub-par licensing revenue this quarter.
But a tough Q3 hasn't stopped Vignette from powering forward. The company just announced the availability of a fresh version of Vignette Content Management.The new Vignette Content Management includes:
* Customizable start pages for content providers
* In-context editing, which turns websites into unique management interfaces for creating and modifying content. Whole pages can also be replicated throughout the site
* Enhanced presentation management, with the inclusion of AJAX-based content components
