Twenty Years of Web CMS

  • 22-Jun-2017

This year marks two decades for me of implementing and evaluating Web Content & Experience Management (WCM) tools.  My 1996 initiation — with TeamSite, EBT DynaWare, and StoryServer — was pretty brutal.  But along with my engineering team, we adapted, and learned enough to found CMS Watch in 2001.

Along the way, we learned a lot of lessons, which I recently shared in CMS Wire.  To quote from the article:

"The two early darlings were Interwoven and Vignette, both having gone public during the dot-com boom. The most striking thing about both vendors was how consistently unhappy their customers were."

The WCM marketplace remains vibrant today, and there's still much to learn, so I enjoy covering it.  If RSG can help your enterprise make good decisions in this space, let's talk.

 

Our customers say...

"RSG covers the nitty gritty, behind-the-scenes, real-life "gotchas" that are important to help distinguish the various products. Your "requirements builders" are awesome - they give us some very clear ideas about how to start talking with our stakeholders. This is all wonderful stuff."
