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.

In our recently released advisory paper, we explain the key considerations when delivering content and services to mobile visitors. Based on these considerations, we've also proposed three broad alternative approaches, depending on how finely-grained targeting your require.

Our customers say...

"I think The Web CMS Research is well worth it. Information is always key to good decisions; don't skip that step! It's also surprisingly well written and not as dry as you would expect. I have an IT background and also a writing (English Literature) background, so I very much appreciated the balance of charts, tech info, and plain-speaking, good old sentences!"
