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...

"I've been using the The Web CMS Research and I have to say that the quality of the analysis is flawless. How your team not only gets beneath the surface of CMS products but also highlights the good, bad, and ugly in very readable research is nothing short of miraculous."
