IBM Digital Experience Manager

If you have other IBM Products like IBM Portal or Connections there can be some scenarios to use IBM WCM. I have used WCM with 3 and half years and I cannot recommend it to anyone. There is many systems that could give you the same features and lot of more at a much lower price.

Pros

IBM Digital Experience Manager

  • Blending workflow perfectly with every component, item or content in system, thus maintaining accuracy of content
  • Keeping versions and history of all changes made, while providing details on when, and by whom it was changed. In this way, restore is easy and straightforward
  • Large set of components provided out of the box to ease building the authoring environment

Cons

IBM Digital Experience Manager

  • Integration between portal pages and WCM is still not optimal, although the introduction of managed pages is a huge improvement. But adding all the changes on page and WCM in one project and one workflow is still not easy
  • Linking portal pages to site area only, and requiring a site area for each content isn't liked by customers
  • Some features like, number of views, adding comments, etc. should be out of the box
  • Some features that depend a lot on theme libraries, especially Dojo libraries, like tagging and ratting should be enhanced

Nowadays, technology grows up faster that we realise. IBM Web Content Manager is the past, present and future solution which invests in the next generation of technology. They have always been at the top of IT solutions, improving user's needs and showing benefits to big companies. New releases and changes have been ongoing and the tool is as strong as the market demands.My recommendation is not just a business but also an IT technical point: IBM has great professionals who work hard to cooperate with their partners to build great solutions.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Digital Experience Manager

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

IBM Digital Experience Manager

  • 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)
