Updated WCM Evaluations Include Drupal, Sitecore, Tridion, and More

  • 24-Jun-2015

RSG has just released a significant update to our Web Content & Experience Management (WCM) vendor evaluations. That's version 22.5 for those of you keeping track.

Updates

Updates include:

  • HP-Autonomy TeamSite: Still chugging along, but still not really worth your consideration, no matter what Gartner and Forrester say
  • SDL-Tridion: A venerable player still playing catch-up
  • Microsoft SharePoint: Even Redmond appears to be giving up the ghost on WCM
  • Sitecore: Doubling down on its go-it-alone strategy
  • Drupal: Still surprisingly complicated as the community awaits the next big release
  • Joomla!: Stalling a bit as the community figures out which way to go

And Changes...

With this edition, we add Crafter Software, built on the Alfresco open source repository. Crafter resembles Magnolia a bit, as a commercial, Java-based system, but customers will want to mind important architectural changes afoot.

In this release, we  drop Percussion, Salesforce, and Ektron as viable WCM players, although RSG subscribers can review the archived chapters.

Our customers say...

"Your CMS Report was helpful indeed, both in giving an overview of the market, but also as a means to increase our professional level in dealing with the selection and purchase process. This goes for me personally as well, as it helped me structure the process, ask the right questions, and focus on the important issues. We had a successful project!"

The vendor's focus on core R&D and channel-based selling proved a winning business strategy, but I think Sitecore has hit a ceiling in recent years....

TeamSite Marriage Counseling

Was reminded recently in a call with an RSG subscriber that some TeamSite implementations linger on, like a really bad relationship you can't seem to end. Maybe it's time for counseling?...
