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.

ManageWP

If you are a WordPress development shop, or host a number of WordPress websites, this is for you. Even if you only have one website but are looking for an easy way to make updates, schedule backups and keep track of the maintenance of your site, this would be a great tool. The cost is reasonable and it saves time, while adding peace of mind with "Safe" updates.

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

ManageWP

  • The reports could be prettier, more templates in order to avoid having to customize for each client so heavily.
  • It would be nice to see if recommended plugin updates are actually production and not beta versions.

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.

ManageWP

Prior to ManageWP, we utilized InfiniteWP, a free (with paid extensions), self-hosted alternative. We found the interface to be unwieldy, and the paid extension pricing to be a bit confusing. The headache of maintaining the software and server infrastructure to run the platform, overshadowed the cost savings for us.
