Global CMS Geekery

Good news. CMS Geeks are getting tanked up all over the world, and it’s spreading. If you live in/travel to one of these areas, join your groups and tell your friends.

Vendors, Stress Balls and Beers

Today was Day 1 at Internet World 2009 a.k.a. #iwexpo for the Twitterrati. I chatted to lots of vendors, performed a vendor selection exercise, and drank a fair bit of sweet sweet beer.

Oh CMS, Deliver Me

In which I rant about what I want from the Delivery Capabilities of a CMS, plus an attempt to answer a question I promised I’d answer.

ECM Maturity Model In A Nutshell

The ECM Maturity Model (EMC3) was recently released. The aim of the model is to provide a structured framework that allows an enterprise to measure their level of capability in various ECM areas. I performed a test of this model, and share my thoughts.
