In a 'Troubled' WCM Sector, Analysts See 3 Innovators

2014-03-July-ThreeHorses.jpg

Fireworks may explode in the night sky as the US celebrates the Fourth of July weekend, but things are much quieter in the web content management market.

The frenetic pace of nine-figure WCM acquisitions of the past four years ended before Christmas, and the once-deep river of venture capital funding for fledgling players ran dry long ago.

Market shifts and technology trends -- the somewhat surprising strength of mobile, the stampede to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), a growing infatuation with digital marketing -- were missed by many players, leaving the field "fragmented" and "troubled," according to fresh research by Matt Mullen and Alan Pelz-Sharpe at 451 Research.

CoreMedia Promises Seamless Customer Experiences

The notion of seamless customer experiences across channels is more of a wish than a reality.

"There is a lack of integration" among e-commerce and content providers, said Doug Heise, global product marketing director for CoreMedia, a web content management provider. "Customers are not getting that single brand experience they want."

But Heise told CMSWire that CoreMedia AG has a solution. The company, which has headquarters in Hamburg, Germany and San Francisco, introduced LiveContext 2.0 today. Heise said it will provide e-commerce and marketing professionals the ability to transform their online stores with better experiences.

CoreMedia is calling it a next-generation digital engagement application that is integrated with IBM WebSphere Commerce.
