Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

It is appropriate for building custom pages/apps that call specific programs and content without giving direct access to those programs. We have yet to come across a proposed use case where it was inappropriate to use.

Contentstack

The customer base of the organization is very big. These consumers use [a] variety of devices plus the organization Where I work, I support many different channels to distribute our content. Our audience [is] spread globally. [The] headless nature of Contentstack prevents us from creating content with assumptions about how it is going to render. This allows downstream teams flexibility to choose styles without worrying about any bugs that may have been introduced during authoring.

Cons

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • The organization of the application is poor and some elements could be more easily accessible not buried in menus.
  • There is little to no community around the application and what does exist is out of date.
  • Does not work well with our IBM applications as well as you would expect, which seems a common issue with IBM products.
Ben Williams | TrustRadius Reviewer

Contentstack

  • The user interface is functional but can be better.
  • Occasionally I am unable to add a certain time to a blog post, but it fixes itself when I refresh.
  • One of the things that we feel could still improve, is the bulk actions.

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

Contentstack

  • It is [a] lean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)
  • [The] high degree of flexibility (I can structure data any way my clients need)
  • Enables headless frontend (i.e. I can build any frontend I want without having to change my CMS)
  • Faster changes and new associates can easily navigate without prior training/knowledge of CMS to make content updates

  • It enabled a degree of flexibility in our delivery methods that simply didn't exist before.
