Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

We can organize all our content easily by uploading content files and other digital assets. CMS smart AI generates metadata by tagging them automatically which helps us to sort our content into different categories. CMS content modeling feature helps us to visualize our content structure, assemble them in an intelligent manner and reuse the content whenever we want to for different purposes.

I think this CMS is best suited as an enterprise level system. For small, or simple sites, there are better options, but for large high-traffic sites, this is a great CMS.

Pros

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • Creating separate pages is easy and straightforward and only requires basic basic knowledge to get started
  • Advanced API calls can be easily built.
Madusanka Balapitiya | TrustRadius Reviewer

CoreMedia

  • Allows many staff members to contribute content to various portions of our website, and allows our Electronic-Communications staff to delegate tasks to these various staff (diffusing the work-load).
  • CoreMedia allows for easy creation of different types of content (like teasers, articles, download objects, links, etc). Permission levels can be set, so only certain staff can upload content such as photos, videos, or audio files.
  • The CoreMedia workflow process is easy to understand and follow. Once a staff member has submitted content for publishing to the web, they can then see who it's been assigned to for review, and at what time. You're able to leave detailed notes and stay abreast of where the workflow is at any given time.

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  • There is little to no community around the application and what does exist is out of date.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

CoreMedia

  • Early learning within the company was slow.
  • We elected a customized version of CoreMedia - which in the end may not have been the best decision.

CoreMedia continues to refine and deliver new features. They also explore new technologies and trends, like social media integration. The platform is solid and growing. We are also slightly locked into using CoreMedia. Migrating such a large amount of content to another system would likely not be feasible or prudent.

Set aside more time than you think you need to migrate content. That is the hard part. Implementing the technology is easy.

Alternatives Considered

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

Acoustic Content stands out mainly in 3 areas, Digital Asset Management system AI Based metatags More secure CDN and REST API to share content All these three features play a huge role in Acoustic Content CMS in terms of finding matching images for our content, categorize and sort our content automatically and finally secure way to publish our content.

CoreMedia

While CoreMedia has a better workflow, django CMS has a much easier user interface, wysiwyg editor, and is superior on every other level. Django CMS is easier to teach and support, easier to manage and develop, and provides much more flexibility in the development and design areas.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

CoreMedia

  • Increased employee proficiency compared to nothing at all. I really don't have anything else to compare it to though.
  • Reports from Core do not help/.
