    Off Topic: Home Is Where The Network Is

    Anyone who likes to avoid supporting a "rats nest" of network wiring should insist that their next house contain a well thought-out network distribution panel. In fact if it doesn't and I were you, I would insist to the seller that's why you as the buyer will pay less for the house due to future headaches you are likely to encounter. In my house, the builder and contractors pre-wired the house for phone, data, cable, satellite, cable, and audio. What more could an IT professional want? The best thing of all, the previous owner of the house barely touched those wires giving me the opportunity to hook things up my way for the very first time.

  • CEO Corner: CMS Has Become One-Size-Fits-None

    A few months ago, CMS Australian enthusiast Said Salameh posted this excellent breakdown comparing the number of steps required to complete simple tasks between eight leading open source content management systems. He illustrates how simple things like editing a page or adding an article can take ten steps or more – far more than necessary. His post spawned a discussion on the Web Content Management group on LinkedIn drawing out frustrations from many in the industry about the complexity of content management systems – particularly open source systems.

  • CEO Corner: Analyzing the CMS Analysts: Which one is right for you?

    CEO Corner: Analyzing the CMS Analysts: Which one is right for you?

    Those of you who have been in the content management industry a while will remember the CMS Watch report. I’m not sure when I first heard of it, but I think it was at an AIIM conference in 2005. I remember thinking that if we could just get Agility into that report, we would have it made. Looking back, it’s amazing to see how many of the systems that ranked well in 2005 are either gone or no longer relevant.

    A few years later, I saw an article on CMS Wire that Ektron had made it into the Gartner Magic Quadrant. I realized that it was going to be hard to complete with this level of recognition, no matter how superior Agility is.

    Fast forward to 2013, and Agility is yet to be found in either of these reports. I reached out several times to CMS Watch in the early days, but we were just too small. I called Gartner in 2010 to see what it would take to get on the Magic Quadrant. They were quick to point out that Agility was probably too small, but if we paid $20,000 they would take a closer look.

    It struck me that it might be worthwhile to write an article on the topic to dig deeper into the options available for CMS vendors. Here are my findings.

  • CEO Corner: CMS Build or Buy–Where’s the Respect?

    I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. The custom CMS discussion has reared it’s ugly head a few times this year. Ron Miller asked his Fierce audience “why would companies still be building a custom CMS” as recently as this past February, which also spawned a discussion on CMS Connected the same month. For us, this is the third time this year we've come up against this most ethereal of competitors. The first was in a pitch in March with a local ad agency who insists that a custom CMS is the most efficient way to go. That was followed by an ongoing discussion with one of our long-time customers about whether they would renew this year in the wake of building an internal development team.

  • CEO Corner: Choosing a CXM Solution - Best of Breed or All-in-One Suite?

    CEO Corner: Choosing a CXM Solution - Best of Breed or All-in-One Suite?

    Petr Palas, founder and CEO of Kentico software, lets his voice be heard to in this week's CEO Corner. In this article, he provides rebuttal to an earlier CEO Corner written by Agility's Michael Assad. Where Assad favors a "best of breed" approach and questions the validity of CXM, Palas believe the future is in fully integrated CXM solutions. Which CEO is right? We'll let you decide...
