  • DNN Continues the Journey Beyond Web Content Management with Evoq 8

    DNN Continues the Journey Beyond Web Content Management with Evoq 8

    The first time I heard the mention of customer experience management was at CMS Expo 2012. In one of the sessions, Robert Rose spent much of his time at the Expo warning the audience that content management systems need to do more than just content management. Rose believed experience management needed to be given a higher priority over web content management. Yesterday, DNN announced with Evoq 8 they are now ready to "move beyond web content management" and enable "marketers to publish, personalize, and measure content anywhere online". The improvements in Evoq 8 are focused on today's marketing needs for better customer engagement. 

    Evoq 8 allows DNN to introduce to its customers integration with cloud content repositories, real-time personalization, content analytics, and advocacy marketing capabilities. To be honest, many of these features and improvements in Evoq 8 are features we have seen in other modern content management platforms. This is why some critics have suggested that "DNN is making this transition rather late in the game, at a point when there are a number of tools for content marketing". The criticism is understandable, but the term "late" to describe Evoq 8 or DNN is inaccurate.
