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.

If you just need to implement a website that is dynamic but not real big in Data Processing almost anyone can do so with very limited knowledge as long as you know how to use a Word Processor and your Browser.If you don't have experience with setting up a Server to run a website there are Companies like PowerDNN, Rackspace and WinHost that can help and I recommend them in that order if you are using DNN.If you need a more sophisticated e-commerce website and don't have much experience with Servers, SQL Server etc. then you should find a consultant to help you install and setup not just the DNN Platform but also select the proper Modules to accomplish what you want to do.If you need a highly customized website that is very data intensive and you are not experienced then be sure to save yourself the time and money by finding a qualified Consultant to help you. The beauty of DNN is that it can handle as simple or as complicated of an Application as you need depending on what your needs are and how far you want to take it.

  • DNN is made for Windows platform, allowing us and our customers to deploy solutions to existing Windows servers or in some cases hosted platforms.
  • DNN integrates with Windows authentication allowing us to deploy intranet solutions and use single sign-on for improved user experience and security.

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  • There is little to no community around the application and what does exist is out of date.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

Evoq Content

  • It can be a bit heavy-handed when it comes to styling. It's sometimes necessary to spend a little extra time to overcome styling issues.
  • Up until version 8 of the core DNN platform, implementing single page applications (SPAs) required extra efforts.
  • It is very difficult to split a site across multiple servers for load balancing

DNN is a widely used product; the development team provides timely new releases and a comprehensive roadmap. DNN is a preferred choice when it comes to cost of ownership for small-size business.

I have not found anything that was as user friendly and easy to use with tons of Community Support as well as Corporate Support like Training Videos, Forums, Blogs, Documentation, Wiki, Free CodePlex downloads, Free Modules and then the DNN Store that has thousands of Skins and Application Modules to accomplish everything you need.

I would never look back and question our decision to implement DNN not only as the Platform for our own use but also to use it to develop a complete turnkey system for our Clients worldwide. Everything you need is available and there is more expertise around the globe than you could ever imagine

Alternatives Considered

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.

DNN is more cost effective, and has powerful backing of .NET platform.Very much modular and skinning is relatively easy to do.

Return on Investment

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • Freed up user time to call a variety of applications quicker.
  • Allowed developer an easier tool to integrate other applications for end users.
  • Allowed us to have a single method of application implementation and usage that is easier to debug, saving time.
Ben Williams | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • DNN have given us the ability to have basic sites for clients up and running in a very short time. This makes the client happy.
  • DNN has taken the trivial, simple tasks of changing text on a page or an image on a page and put it into the hands of the client. They do not have to pay us to do it and that also frees up more time for us to spend on development.
