5 Web CMS Selection Lessons You Can Use

2015-4-march-cms-project.jpg

It was the worst-case scenario in a web content management system (Web CMS) implementation: Project abandoned.

"No project goes without at least a few bumps in the road," said Cathy McKnight, co-founder and vice president of consulting and operations at New York City-based Digital Clarity Group. "It provides you an opportunity to adjust the plan if need be. Just because you cast something down on paper doesn't mean you can't change ... or stop and reassess."

It's one lesson learned for the Web CMS implementation consultants at Digital Clarity Group. They teamed with Copenhagen, Denmark-based Sitecore, a Web CMS and customer experience management company, and interviewed companies that have gone through a Web CMS implementation.

Microsoft Confirms 'Dramatic Refactoring' of Windows Server

During a Twitter-hosted tweet jam today, Microsoft’s lead architect for Windows Server, Jeffrey Snover, acknowledged what he called “crazy innovation” happening with his key product. In response to a question from CMSWire, Snover told the crowd that his team was “working on a dramatic refactoring of the server.”

Though Snover declined to provide many further details, the question involved a specific evolutionary path which both Snover and the jam’s co-host, Azure technical fellow Mark Russinovich, skillfully refrained from denying.

Microsoft may be steering Windows Server away from its traditional role as a provider of monolithic applications on a desktop — toward a radically different scheme much more similar to what’s being done in recent months with Linux and Docker.

2015-27-February-Cats-Dogs.jpg

The discord between sales and marketing is alive and well, but a new solution is trying to put the two on the same page through relevant content. The right content can be the difference between making or breaking a sale. And while a number of technologies can deliver using manual input, Docurated released a solution this week which it claims can do so automatically.

According to Alex Gorbanksy, CEO of Docurated, Content Cloud sits in Salesforce and uses content input from existing repositories to automatically offer sales people -- even those who are mobile -- the right content to close the best deals.

Fortune Favors the Bold: Vendor Strategies in the IoT Age

2015-17-February-Climb-Mountain.jpg

One day in the not too distant future, people will look back and say, “Do you remember when things weren’t connected?” In much the same way that smartphones reshaped not only what we thought possible, but also what we took for granted, the Internet of Things (IoT) will dramatically change what we do, how we do it and what we expect.

The Hyperconnected Future of Web Content Management

2015-12-February-Connected.jpg

By the end of the decade, there will be 33 billion devices connected to the Internet, or roughly four connected devices for every living person. And a significant portion of devices -- roughly 50 percent -- will come from emerging categories that are now beginning to make up the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart homes, smartphones, smart TVs and wearable devices will soon outnumber more familiar connected devices like PCs.

Ingeniux: Our CMS Platform 'Leapfrogs' ASP.NET Market

The Web Content Management (WCM) world was shaken up last week when Forrester Research came out with its first Wave report on the space in two years.

"Web content management software has become the technology and content delivery backbone of digital experiences," Forrester researchers wrote in their report. 

Forrester reviewed 10 CMS vendors. But what about the rest? We've tracked a few more, including Ingeniux. Fresh off its fall release of Ingeniux CMS 9, the Seattle-based company plans a "major update" to the CMS application user interface this year.

"The Ingeniux platform continues to evolve," said David Hillis, vice president of business development for Ingeniux. "We have major enhancements and updates planed for all of our products. What makes it exciting is the evolution of our industry and customer needs. We feel that Ingeniux is really well positioned on a number of areas."

Open Source Jahia Raises $22.5M to Grow Enterprise Clients

Jahia is getting a $22.5 million cash infusion from Invus, a New York City-based investment firm, the Geneva, Switzerland-based open source content management system (CMS) vendor announced today.

The funds will help CEO Elie Auvray grow Jahia's customer base, especially in the enterprise space. Auvray told CMSWire the company plans to further develop its user experience platform to improve integration with third-party platforms — an apparent sign of more more technology partnerships to come.

What's New in February for Open Source CMS

It goes without saying that WordPress is big — the Goliath of free and open source content management systems (CMS). WordPress is the number 1 CMS system currently in use, and increased its usage on more than 2 million domains since June 2014.

But what about the others? Who is bigger than who?

Sydney, Australia-based BuiltWith.com tracks such things on an ongoing basis. So this month, we thought we'd share the latest statistics on the web's leading open source platforms.

Putting the Context in Mobile Content and E-Commerce

2015-09-February-Tiger-Smile.jpg

Mobile is a lifestyle, not a channel. So the value of mobile devices emerges most strongly when you engage users in the context of their day-to-day activities. Developing an ongoing relationship with consumers means serving them when they have a specific need, as opposed to pushing content and offers out to them.

This requires a fundamental shift in marketer's mindsets. They know they have to understand user's needs and contexts in order to serve up appropriate content. The challenge lies in integrating content marketing into merchandizing and brand management functions.

How Forrester Views its 10 Web Content Management Sharks

2015-5-February-Forrester Sharks.jpg

To get into Forrester's Web Content Management Club, you have to have a few things. Like $50 million, for starters.

Forrester's top 10 WCM vendors, which the Cambridge, Mass.-based research organization announced yesterday in its Wave, must have at least $50 million in WCM or digital experience revenue annually.

They also need "significant interest from Forrester clients" and "experience as the primary solution for web content management in large organizations."

In other words, we're swimming with web content management sharks here, not pond minnows. 

Which shark has the best bite? Forrester researchers said Adobe Systems for its Adobe Experience Manager 6.0. Sitecore was also named a leader.

Acquia, OpenText, SDL, HP, IBM and Oracle were cited by Forrester as "strong performers." And Ektron and EPiServer -- now merged -- got nods individually as "contenders." In all, the top 10 includes six American-rooted companies, three European and one Canadian.  

Let's take a peek into how Forrester researchers analyze each shark.

Why Translation is Becoming Invisible

2015-05-February-Location.jpgIf you’ve ever tried to find a hotel in Paris without knowing French or searched for that famous restaurant in Beijing without Chinese skills, you know that navigating a foreign country can be an adventure -- to put it mildly. Tech companies from Microsoft to Google are helping remove difficulties by building increasingly sophisticated translation capabilities, such as real-time voice translation.

Average users can now employ their mobile devices to ease the transition between cultures, and they expect similar progress in your company’s website and app. How do you make your multilingual presence not cumbersome nor half-finished, but seamless and invisible?
