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.

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.

  • The Pegboard platform does not limit the design and feel of a website. As web designers and developers we have the ability to design a unique looking website through the construction of HTML template pages which are then integrated with the Pegboard CMS.
  • The Pegboard platform provides a large range of modules for integration by designers into a website. The modules that are used depend on the requirements of the website - there is no limit to the number of modules that can be used.
  • The online CMS management console is easy to use. A client can manage their website content with as little as a half day training session.
  • The Pegboard CMS is a high-end web platform that provides the opportunity to integrate a company’s back-end systems like CRM, accounting and inventory software with their website - providing a business administration efficiencies.
  • The Pegboard CMS provides all of the modules that other CMS provide and include: News, RSS feeds, advanced forms, SEO, blog, banner ads, document management, SMS enablement, image galleries, jobs, membership, broadcasting, polls, event management, forums, product catalogue, eCommerce, e-Marketing, social media
  • The CMS provides the ability to tailor content for certain users - ie. specific information for members, limited information for the general public. There is no limit to the number of types of users.
  • Pegboard's partner program provides access to a network of other developers and programmers that can be called upon to provide their expertise in their area of specialty.

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  • There is little to no community around the application and what does exist is out of date.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

Pegboard

  • The Pegboard platform is a high-end CMS solution and so requires a high level of knowledge of HTML and CSS. It is not suitable for graphic designers with a limited knowledge of these web languages.
  • As a partner I have access to the Pegboard developers helpline - phone or online ticket system. At times I have found that their assistance has been a little on the slow side. This could be improved. I also feel that they expect a higher level of programming ability than we as a partner may necessarily have.
  • We have used the Pegboard Build department to assist us with the development of some aspects of our client’s websites. This build service could improve their communication with partners so that outcomes could be achieved more easily.

The Pegboard platform offers our company the ability to offer a greater level of design than any other platform. And this, combined with the superior functionality that the platform offers, enables us to provide a web solution to companies requiring a high-end website for their business. Without the Pegboard platform we would not be able to provide a top-end solution to those clients that require it.

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

Pegboard

Pegboard provides a superior ability to customise the design of a website and offers a greater level of functionality. The other web platforms reviewed all use their own design templates that can then be customised. We have recommended these other 2 platforms to some clients that are happy with an existing template design and therefore benefit from some potential lower cost. These other platforms do provide a lesser level of functionality.

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.

Pegboard

  • Mosaic Studios is a relatively new partner of the Pegboard platform. The platform has enabled us to provide a sophisticated web solution to a number of our clients - helping us to provide a more complete service. Without the ability to offer this high-end web solution we could have potentially lost a number of clients.
  • Pegboard has broadening the web solutions that we can recommend to clients - and therefore the platform helps us to attract new clients and to retain existing clients.
