Agility CMS

Agility is well suited for companies that want a balance of control and support. For major global site updates, these can be handled by Agility's support team, while minimal changes and updates can be performed autonomously by the company's own staff with ease. For companies that are interested in flexibility to reconstruct site structure or major global facelifts, Agility is less ideal because these changes must be handled and paid for through Agility support.

IBM Web Content Manager is well suited for building content driven web sites and web portals and micro-sites. It provides robust personalization capabilities when the web content is rendered through portlets on WebSphere Portal pages.

Pros

Agility CMS

  • File management within the CMS is extremely helpful as a hosting/uploading tool local to our web pages and content.
  • Ability to clone web page content across mutli-language websites takes only a few clicks, and translation can be performed easily based on default English content.
  • Ability to post shared content and link content to categories for easy organization of content on the web - post once, and serve the content up on the live site in multiple places.

  • Multi-language implementations
  • It's easy to create a complex page with the Authoring/Presentation templates.
  • A good range of different components (HTML, JSP, Navigator, ...)
  • No interruption (stabile)

Cons

Agility CMS

  • Simplification of uploading files would be ideal - where all files are located in the Media & Documents section rather than uploaded directly to Shared Content modules. One home for all files helps us keep track of what is uploaded and what is not.
  • Better copy/paste handling of content from external programs (cleaning Word document formatting, etc.), similar to handling by Word Press and other simplified CMS would be helpful.
  • Greater control over global content such as headers/footers, multi-language implementation, etc., would allow our developers more flexibility and reduce our time coordinating with Agility support and using BOH.

  • Reduce time to required to assemble each product . It's quite difficult and we wast a lost of prototyping time trying to find a good configuration
  • Some products with a level for assembly are not compatible if installed together
  • It takes too long to install WPS / Case Manager / Digital Data Connector / Connections and Domino. I would like to see a basic architecture to expose service mail, blog, share file, share mail, meeting etc. I am waiting your Connections Pink solution impatiently!
  • I would like to see a more out-of-the-box solution so that we do not have to focus our energy in installing clusters or configuring the platform
  • Most of our customers are not ready to share data in the cloud, and there is a need for a real store and secure solution for administration and banking users who prefer on-premise solution. I am a big fan of your ECM /Portal /Social/ collaborative on-premise solutions. I would like to see better packaging to reduce costs and promote real use cases for administration and banking
  • Please integrate E-commerce elements in your suite.
  • Please make practice and certification easier (It should be free). Do not expire certifications.
  • Please facilitate contacts with support experts, specialists, and not just PMR contacts who are not qualified to help us. I would like engagement with support to be much more efficient and the support team to me more responsive.

Support is always available and responsive when we email, responding right away that they are on the case, even if they are unable to solve the issue right away. Support will usually find the issue of our problem quickly and require minimal hand-holding, direction, or re-explanation from our team. They are knowledgeable about the platform and our instance and are able to run diagnostics with minimal information from us. When issues are resolved they always request confirmation that things are working as expected before closing out our tickets.

Alternatives Considered

Agility CMS

Agility offers a balance of simplicity and capability that other platforms don't offer. User-friendly platforms like Word Press do not offer our company the ability to fully customize our site based on our goals, but more adaptable programs like Drupal do not offer the support resources to simplify the structure of our site with pre-existing modules or professional development to meet our needs.

I used Liferay WCM; the open source system is too customizable such that what you get out of the box is not adequate. However, the portal pages in Liferay blend better with WCM than IBM: This is not always an advantage if you want to build a WCM site separated from portal pages. In general, a comparison between Liferay and IBM isn't valid in my opinion, IBM WCM is a more stable product and I certainly recommend it over Liferay

Return on Investment

Agility CMS

  • It is fairly simple for our employees to make web updates via Agility CMS, and this greatly optimizes our employee efficiency.
  • We are able to load and host company files easily via Agility CMS Media & Documents, which allows minimal, quick content sharing between departments when other file sharing platforms are not available.
  • Automation platforms and tracking code easily integrate with Agility CMS global headers to allow us to seamlessly acquire analytics on our site visits and content access.

  • Negative: Very complex architecture for on-premise deployments (too many servers to installed)
  • Positive: Easy customization
  • Negative: Architecture limited to cloud solutions
  • WCM is an old product and needs an update
  • Blog, and community are not integrated in Digital Manager for discussion
  • Templates are not available to integrate basic services (FileNet, more complex BPM , e-commerce)
