I've been a big fan of Digital Clarity Group ever since they formed. There are some amazing people working for DCG and the work they put out is even more amazing. Last year they put out their 2013 North America Guide to Service Providers for Web Content and Customer Experience Management and I was blown away. Many of the answers to the questions I'm often asked about various agencies and integrators are in this guide. So I'm pretty excited to also see DCG put the same effort toward Europe with their new 2014 Europe Guide to Service Providers for Web Content and Customer Experience Management.

Besides just a list providing the "reader's choice", I also provide my own list of favorite articles that has been posted here on CMSReport.com. When comparing the two lists, you will find the only article on both lists is the one comparing Drupal and Joomla. In 2006, it was one of the first articles that I had written which suggested CMSReport.com might stick around a little longer than I had expected.
