However, as complexity increases—especially around advanced personalization, visitor permissions, integration and dashboarding-an enterprise may turn to the long-established approach of applying an enterprise portal framework.
Kashayp Kompella on Mobile Marketing
29-Apr-2013 | KM World | "Enterprise mobile marketing: Making the right moves in a rapidly evolving field"
Mobile marketing has often been hailed as a game changer, but in reality it has not lived up to industry expectations. If the industry growth in 2012 is any indicator, it appears that after many years of underperformance, marketers are finally getting serious about mobile. eMarketer estimated that enterprises would spend $2.6 billion on mobile marketing in 2012, but later found that the actual spend was $4.1 billion. Despite such impressive growth, mobile marketing accounts for only about 1 percent of the total spend, and it is still early days for the industry...Read More.

EContent's Coverage of Our Recent Advisory Paper: 2013 Market Trends and Analysis of Web Content & Experience Management Systems
06-Mar-2013 | EContent | "Real Story Group Warns Against "CXM Suites""
Customers should remain wary of WCM vendors reinventing themselves as "Customer Experience Management (CXM)" suite providers, according to a new marketplace analysis released by analyst firm The Real Story Group. The new advisory briefing, 2013 Market Trends and Analysis of Web Content & Experience Management Systems, categorizes 36 Web CMS vendors and charts the relative customer risks with each solution.
RSG found that Web CMS vendors are trying to infuse their technology with tools for marketing automation, email marketing, predictive analytics, lead scoring, testing, and optimization, and associated reporting -- all under the umbrella of practicing CXM. However, The Real Story Group advises prospective buyers to perform careful due diligence against vendor claims of providing a comprehensive CXM platform.

Tony Byrne on building a custom Enterprise Content Management System
11-Feb-2013 | FierceContent Management | "Why would companies still be developing a custom CMS?"
Tony Byrne from Real Story Group says an extremely high-end media company might need one (custom CMS). "The only sector where I've seen it make sense to build a DIY CMS is in the media segment, particularly at the highest end. The intense performance and functional requirements in some media scenarios can supersede what an off-the-shelf platform or even available toolkits can do," Byrne told me.
But when you decide to roll your own, you head down a slippery slope, one that many companies learned about the hard way in the 90s. Sure that system might meet your needs today and even next year, but with a constantly evolving publications marketplace, how can you possibly adapt and change the system quickly when those inevitable changes are required. You could find yourself with an expensive, obsolete system in short order with very few options available to you for upgrading. How many of the older systems could adapt to mobile delivery or easily incorporate social media?
