Spot The Difference – The 2010 CMS Watch Vendor Map

Here’s to Cisco an’ Sonny an’ Leadbelly too,
An’ to all the good people that traveled with you.
Here’s to the hearts and the hands of the men
That come with the dust and are gone with the wind.

 As everyone knows, I think the CMS Watch Content Techonology Vendor Map is awesome. They’ve just released the 2010 version. As far as I can tell, the main differences between this and the 2009 version are shown below:

 So, what’s changed? Firstly, the big mergers and acquisitions:

  • Adobe decided to buy Omniture for reasons I haven’t figured out yet. It’s made the map more topologically tricky.
  • OpenText has gobbled up Vignette, removing another of the big dots
  • Oracle has bought SUN, which hasn’t changed much since Oracle had a few of everything already.
  • JBoss and eXo have merged Portal platforms
  • ClearStory is now The FeedRoom, who have been recently acquired by KIT digital.

New Kids On The Map:

And finally:

  • FaceBook has gone. Maybe not enterprise enough. Which is probably why Twitter isn’t on either.
  • Poor EPiServer still hasn’t made it onto the SoCo line, even though they’ve got a very mature Community product
  • SAP still isn’t considered a CMS, which is fine by me.

So that’s that. A 300 page report costs about the same as an overpaid consultant researching badly for a couple of days to prepare that disappointing Google-fleeced document you were embarrassed to show your boss. It’s a no brainer. Buy the reports. All of them. They rock.
