Drifting Yellow Dots – Gartner CMS MQ 2010

Lordy, has it been a year already? Sure has. The 2010 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WCM is out. You can get the report here courtesy of our friends at SiteCore. As usual it is worth a read, but here are the juicy bits.

What has the Ministry of Magic Quadrants got against me?

Web Content Management has progressed from a Gartner MarketScope in 2008 to a Magic Quadrant in 2009. I’m normally quite a fan of Gartner, and was fortunate enough to hear Mick MacComascaigh (the lead WCM Analyst) give a great presentation at a recent event. We even had a nice chat about WCM Maturity Models afterward. However, I’ve got to say that it’s quite difficult not to treat this research as a giant advert for Oracle.

A Quiz, Some Beers and a Celebrity Visit

A light hearted post. I created a CMS quiz on QuizTweet which turned out far more popular than expected, so some information on that. Plus a plug for CMS geek events in London.

A FatWire In Shining Armour

An interesting play by FatWire. Our knights in shining armour have heard the shrill cries of distress from the damsels stuck at the top of Tower Vignette and Tower Interwoven and have gallantly offered to migrate them away to the safety of Castle FatWire for free. The name of the package (FatWire Rescue Program) implies the damsels are in serious trouble. Maybe this is a marketing stunt, maybe it is a genuine way for customers to save time and money.

Clash of the CMS Titans

Vignette have posted a new set of questions, which they’ve called the “Enterprise Web Content Management (WCM)” Meme. This takes the CMS Vendor Meme to the next level. Will there be blood?

Dog Food, CMS Accessibility and a Nice Surprise

Now that we know most vendors use their own product for their site, we test the home pages for many major vendors. We need to ask why so few of them have markup that validates and discuss possible reasons.

Celebrity CMS Deathmatch – The Beginning

A post from Kas Thomas at CMS Watch has inspired Day to start an intriguing CMS fight. I think everyone is going to wade in. This is Part I of the story.
