CoreMedia

Excerpt from the CoreMedia: evaluation:

"CoreMedia has taken an interesting approach with regard to workflow. Workflows can easily be created and managed using the browser, as with other vendor's products, but in the background, the actual workflow instances run as separate processes. This means that workflow can run on a separate machine. The advantages of this separation include better load balancing and reliability (the CMS can go down without leaving in-process workflows in an unknown state or requiring a restart of interrupted workflows). The workflow engine can also be further extended using custom coding in Java, e.g., to notify third-party systems of certain events or involve external services in the workflow. A very simple example would be to send an email to an approver, rather than using the editorial client for approval; but you could also fire off a compliance workflow as certain actions complete, or peek and poke data in a remote system. ..."

Back to DACH

As much any of the other five continents where we have research customers, we see that Europe is particularly regionally inclined: small vendors flourish in their local markets, often keeping out larger global competitors. But perhaps moreso than the rest of western Europe (UK excluded), out of DACH has come come of the largest technology powerhouses in content management, from the likes of SAP and CoreMedia to Day (since acquired by Adobe) and e-Spirit, to open source projects such as Magnolia, OpenCMS, and Typo3

WebSphere Portal, Coremedia or EMC Documentum?

I enjoyed an excellent day in Oxford last week speaking (and listening to the other speakers) at a CMS Expert Group round table event. Many topics of interest emerged, but the one that underlay several discussions -- and is also close to my heart -- was, "When is a Web Content Management project not a Web Content Management project?"

CoreMedia integrates with SAP NetWeaver Portal

If you're running a SAP NetWeaver Portal -- presumably since you've bought into SAPs infrastructure -- you may have discovered it's not the most ideal of platforms to actually publish content on

Is German CoreMedia still a CMS company?

While the CoreMedia corporate website still mentions CMS, it seems like the longtime German content management vendor is more focused on digital rights management (DRM) these days.

A Standard Web CMS for German Government

The German government has launched the first site managed by a new Web content management system, Government Site Builder, which was built by a local integrator, Materna, on top of a product from German CMS vendor CoreMedia.
