Bloomreach Experience Manager (formerly Hippo)

The system is ideal if you want to reuse content easily. The "document type" logic, which is not page oriented, but content oriented is a clever and efficient way to build up "content bricks". This guarantees an ideal way to use the same content in different templates or even channels. It can also help to feed some mobile-apps as it is planned in our future online strategy

CONTENTdm

CONTENTdm is well-suited for smaller organizations as a simple solution to present a digital collection on the web. If your need is complex and requires digital preservation as part of the workflow, it may not be the best solution.

Pros

Bloomreach Experience Manager (formerly Hippo)

  • High scalability and reuse of standard information architecture, templates and features in all countries: Every country will have his own channel, usually multi-language oriented. Product information will be very happy and reuse of content mandatory. The system therefore has to be very robust and scalable.
  • Good usability for back-end users: As more than hundred users will use the system on a daily basis, training had to be as minimal as possible. The backend has to be self-explanatory by itself. Hippo goes this way. If you can use a tree structure and a basic RTEditor, you are ready to use Hippo.
  • State of the art targeting tool: In order to address segmentation of users and to go beyond a simple layout relaunch, our Marketing Department needed a tool which can make use of Personas and build up complex dynamic criterias. Real time analysis of the users behaviors will provide insights and allow the company to build up effective CRM strategies.

CONTENTdm

  • Constant URLs
  • User interface is good
  • Run by OCLC, not likely to disappear

Cons

Bloomreach Experience Manager (formerly Hippo)

  • Hippo lacks some functionality in the backend to help writers, admins to collaborate. Some internal ticketing system for example would be ideal.
Laurent Vonach | TrustRadius Reviewer

CONTENTdm

  • As a digital asset management system, one would expect the capability of managing preservation, which CONTENTdm lacks.
  • Lack of batch updating and other advanced metadata management capabilities.
  • The usage statistics does not work, and the company is not planning to fix it, at least based the interaction with tech support staff. Customers were referred to use Google Analytics.

So far, Hippo is our ideal tool given its use of open standards which helps us to have a clear overview of what's coming next in the future Hippo releases. We are very confident in the future-readiness of the product

Alternatives Considered

Bloomreach Experience Manager (formerly Hippo)

Magnolia, Typo3, Drupal, Hybris, Intershop, RBS Change, Sitefinity, Liferay, Crownpeak, Ektron, EzPublish, Coremedia, Pironet, ModX,...We built up a requirement sheet and banished from the selection all CMS wich would not fullfill more than 2 "mandatory" features. Although Hippo did not perfom well in the collaborative features, its core features were going exactly toward our needs. Major focus was mutli-level architecture, scalability, native multi-languages capabilities and excellent roadmap for future releases. We needed a very active development schedule, especially in the field of targeting and real time analysis of users behaviors

CONTENTdm

We selected CONTENTdm because it had a good reputation, was used by many institutions, provided a good product, and supplied feedback and monthly reports.We are wondering about DPLA and if that will be the next evolution or platform.

Return on Investment

Bloomreach Experience Manager (formerly Hippo)

  • As we can use one single instance of Hippo CMS to feed 50 different countries websites and more to come (extranets, special user restricted areas, B2B sites, etc), we can easily deploy it and maintenance costs are marginal now compared to the previous situation (different CMS in every country with local hosting, maintenance, etc).
  • As Hippo is future ready, countries are already setting up more complex and efficient digital campaigns. This was impossible before as our systems could not address these needs.
Laurent Vonach | TrustRadius Reviewer

CONTENTdm

  • It helped us to get started with our digital collections projects at a relatively low cost.
  • As our needs grew, it became apparent that we needed something more powerful, and that provides better workflows and better statistics and is able to handle the whole life cycle of digitation projects.
