Experiences Implementing Web Content Man

By chrisl ·
Is anyone out there willing to discuss their experience implementing commercial web content management and personlization solutions? In particular, we're interested in hearing what's involved - time, money, resources, impact, etc... (specific vendorrecommendations/endorsements are of less interest to us).These issues will help us frame the initiative and determine it's scope. Thanks a million!

Experiences Implementing Web Content Man

by Corky132 In reply to Experiences Implementing ...

We used MS Site Server 3.. it does 3 things (at least we used it for 3 things).. First, it allows regular users to upload documents via a web page interface.. and allows permissions to be setup (user uploads, webmaster approves, and it's live).

The second is personalization. Based on a user login (on an intranet), a web page can be setup to each specific user, based on NT groups, or choices they have made before.

Third is replication.. you can setup replication across multiple web servers.. from test servers to production servers, or spread across many production servers. It's very flexible.

The whole package is very nice and runs tight with windows NT server.. however you'll need SQL for a larger site. It's definately not an "out of the box" program. There'll be some programming work, mostly VB.

The commercial package also includes ecommerce. The whole project took about 6 months with about 3 people.

Hope this helps.

With personalization, we looked at Broadvision and Net Perceptions. Although both companies were very helpful in providing information, I felt the cost factor was way out of line with most budgets. With Broadvision there was a $50,000 training course on top of the actual software which usually ranges from $300,000 and up. I think personalization software has a long way to go before it really addresses the consumer end of the equation.
