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...

"There is really no comparison between the level of detail and insight I find in the Real Story Group publications and other resources. Why is The Web CMS Research so good? First, Real Story Group avoids fads and takes a very measured, grounded analysis of changes going on in the web marketplace. Second, Real Story Group evaluates solutions holistically, looking at more than the software itself and considering the vendor's business viability. Third, Real Story Group can't be beat for having a conceptual grasp of what is really important in these products, and how they actually get deployed, from small implementations to enterprise scale. It's this thorough, totally grounded perspective that makes Real Story Group research an indispensable tool in my business."

It bears discussing one more time: vendor NDAs are not conducive to telling the real story to enterprise technology customers...
