IBM upgrades Workplace WCM

  • 24-Sep-2006

It's still branded "Workplace," but the new version 6.0 of IBM's "WWCM" is even more tightly linked to WebSphere Portal. That's actually a Good Thing for licensees who have made a strong commitment to IBM's portal product: content managers can now set personalization configs and edit content in-context without switching back and forth between interfaces. But as CMS Report buyers know, IBM does not seem to have invested as much R&D in WWCM as some pure-play CMS competitors, and the product's usability still strikes us as a bit lagging. IBM and its customers face some strategic choices here after the FileNet acquisition, but I suspect that for Big Blue, WWCM will remain a keeper.
