Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

It is advisable to create custom designs that call for specific programs and content without giving direct access to those programs. We still have to meet the proposed use case where it should not be used.

Bloomreach Discovery

The system is ideal if you want to reuse content easily. The "document type" logic, which is not page oriented, but content oriented is a clever and efficient way to build up "content bricks". This guarantees an ideal way to use the same content in different templates or even channels. It can also help to feed some mobile-apps as it is planned in our future online strategy

Pros

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • It has a wide variety of built-in API calls.
  • Building unique pages is simple and straightforward and requires only basic fundamental knowledge to get started.
  • More advanced API calls can be developed simply.

Bloomreach Discovery

  • High scalability and reuse of standard information architecture, templates and features in all countries: Every country will have his own channel, usually multi-language oriented. Product information will be very happy and reuse of content mandatory. The system therefore has to be very robust and scalable.
  • Good usability for back-end users: As more than hundred users will use the system on a daily basis, training had to be as minimal as possible. The backend has to be self-explanatory by itself. Hippo goes this way. If you can use a tree structure and a basic RTEditor, you are ready to use Hippo.
  • State of the art targeting tool: In order to address segmentation of users and to go beyond a simple layout relaunch, our Marketing Department needed a tool which can make use of Personas and build up complex dynamic criterias. Real time analysis of the users behaviors will provide insights and allow the company to build up effective CRM strategies.

Cons

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • It doesn't work well with our IBM systems and as you might expect, that seems to be a common problem with IBM products.
  • Application settings are bad and some items are easily accessible and can be buried in menus
Madusanka Balapitiya | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Hippo lacks some functionality in the backend to help writers, admins to collaborate. Some internal ticketing system for example would be ideal.

So far, Hippo is our ideal tool given its use of open standards which helps us to have a clear overview of what's coming next in the future Hippo releases. We are very confident in the future-readiness of the product

Alternatives Considered

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

I haven't had experience outside of the IBM applications but can confirm that compared to other content tools provided by IBM, this is one of the more complete packages.
Ben Williams | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bloomreach Discovery

Magnolia, Typo3, Drupal, Hybris, Intershop, RBS Change, Sitefinity, Liferay, Crownpeak, Ektron, EzPublish, Coremedia, Pironet, ModX,...We built up a requirement sheet and banished from the selection all CMS wich would not fullfill more than 2 "mandatory" features. Although Hippo did not perfom well in the collaborative features, its core features were going exactly toward our needs. Major focus was mutli-level architecture, scalability, native multi-languages capabilities and excellent roadmap for future releases. We needed a very active development schedule, especially in the field of targeting and real time analysis of users behaviors

Return on Investment

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • Approved developer is a simple tool for integrating other end-user applications.
  • It has allowed us to have one-stop-shop and easy-to-use debugging, saving time.
Madusanka Balapitiya | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bloomreach Discovery

  • As we can use one single instance of Hippo CMS to feed 50 different countries websites and more to come (extranets, special user restricted areas, B2B sites, etc), we can easily deploy it and maintenance costs are marginal now compared to the previous situation (different CMS in every country with local hosting, maintenance, etc).
  • As Hippo is future ready, countries are already setting up more complex and efficient digital campaigns. This was impossible before as our systems could not address these needs.
