Adapting Your Content Management Platform for Mobile Delivery

  • 14-Jun-2010

One of our predictions for this year was about the rise of mobile as a delivery channel -- much more closely integrated with your content technologies. Most vendors provide some sort of mechanism for delivering content to mobile channels, and most of them will tell you they support mobile delivery. However, like all other features, the devil lies in the details. The extent to which these vendors support mobile delivery varies drastically in depth and kind.
