    Curata

    I liked Curata, but it depends on the use case of how it will be used as to how effective it is for someone. If you are trying to curate content it works great. Had I not been so put off by the issue mentioned earlier I would have given more effort to learn the CMS, so I am not sure how effective it really is.

    Again, I like to think of my association and usage of IBM Case Manager V.5.2. Please keep in mind that this is only one component of the IBM Enterprise Content Management suite of products. I believe IBM Case Manager is an ideal solution for medium to large companies looking to automate lnad

    Pros

    Curata

    • Curata is great at curating in content that is relevant to our audience. It is easy to add many different sources to the feed from all around the web and we've really seen Curata "learn" what we see as the most relevant.
    • The microsite we got as part of our Curata subscription is really fantastic. It's very customizable and we've been able to really craft it to suit our needs. There are so many different options available and our Curata rep has been really great with helping us cater each piece to our vision while making helpful suggestions along the way in terms of best practices. Plus, the word processor for publishing blog posts is so easy to use and I've had no issues with it so far unlike many other CMS platforms I've worked with. The Curata microsite is actually going to be replacing our current blog very soon - we love it that much!
    • I've had a great experience with customer service from Curata. Our rep is responsive and helpful and really good about not just answering our concerns but also providing feedback on our processes and giving advice for how we can improve.
    • Search capabilities within the curated content feed are fabulous. This is one area where I found other solutions to be lacking when we were going through the sales process, but Curata really succeeds here. It's extremely easy to find exactly what you're looking for in your content feed.

    • It provides easy to use administrative tools to work with the product.
    • Good documentation on the production is available which makes it easier to use.
    • It supports high availability architecture

    Cons

    Curata

    • For me the product worked great for what I needed it for, I no longer needed it and was a few days past their renewal date (you have to cancel either 60 or 90 days before the end date of the contract) and they would not work with me. They took the stance of, "Too bad, so sad." They offered me their CMS along with their CCS for this last year, but we never fully used it and was turned off by the lack of customer service initially in this situation...especially after it was a matter of around 10 days or so that I was late.
    • Having to keep reconnecting LinkedIn would throw me off at times.
    • Sometimes the article I was trying to post to WordPress would get hung up and I would need to get a hold of support to help clear the system.

    IBM ECM

    • As enterprise and mid-market systems go, the price is highly competitive (especially when you consider what's included in the license). That said, this product is not accessible for small businesses as a self hosted solution. The "Navigator on Cloud" solution is much more accessible, but gives less control over data.
    • To get all the features, there are many moving parts. For large enterprises, this is no problem, and the cloud solution obviates most of these concerns.

    For all of the features we loved when we signed on like the microsite and search capabilities and also their customer service, we will very likely renew with Curata. We also really like the evolution we have seen of the solution, just recently a new integration with Marketo (also a vendor of ours) was announced which will be very beneficial to us in optimizing our email newsletters

    There is no plan to change ECM at organizational level. Replacing products and changing custom applications involves lot of effort

    The end-user experience is excellent. The Administration experience needs some more work.

    Alternatives Considered

    Curata

    We closely considered Rallyverse before deciding on Curata. Rallyverse had superior social sharing capabilities, but Curata's microsite and email newsletter features plus the infinite content source and feed search capabilities far outweighed what Rallyverse has to offer at this time. We are very happy with our decision

    IBM ECM

    Our relationship with IBM is long standing. We have been Gold Partners for some time and are viewed by many internal groups as their Go To partner for large ECM deployments. Most of our systems engineers hold multiple certifications as solutions developers. Our clients are national and international. The support we receive from IBM has been excellent and our partnership with them on numerous projects has been excellent.

    Return on Investment

    Curata

    • I would say neutral for us, but more so because of how we were using it and it being a stop-gap fix for us.
    Shane Adair | TrustRadius Reviewer

    IBM ECM

    • We have seen our customers realize increased employee efficiency by reducing the amount of time it takes to process a transaction.
    • We have seen improvements in customer service because information can be made more readily available to customer service personnel who are fielding service calls.
    • We have seen improvements in decision making because processing-related statistics are more readily available to the managers who need the input to make quality business decisions that affect the day-to-day operations.
