Opal

I honestly cannot recommend this tool enough. Opal is such a valuable tool for brand content creators and there is nothing like it available. If you're serious about content marketing and have a need to find ways to collaborate, plan and provide more visibility among teams, then Opal really is the only way to go. One more thing that's not being mentioned: The tool is simply amazing but it's only as amazing is the team behind the tool. Their customer support and willingness to quickly be in touch when needed is a key feature within itself. Seriously, such a good team of people.

Pros

Opal

  • Content planning: you can look at one asset and see how it is being used across multiple channels by multiple teams.
  • Content collaboration: it is really easy to see what other people and teams are contributing to an asset, or how they are using it. We can also duplicate content that was created by another team to use as a starting point in our own content collaboration.
  • High level/big picture overview: Opal allows us to see content that is being created, planned and scheduled very easily; it goes beyond social content (which we can also see in Sprinklr) to show us content created across multiple channels.

XWiki Collaboration Suite

  • XWiki makes it easy to manage semi-structured information, which is at the heart of every knowledge nexus of organizations. It makes it easy to manage in a single system both structured data (such as memberships, projects), and unstructured data.
  • XWiki offers a very rich API for creating enterprise applications quickly that are easy to maintain and evolve collaboratively.
  • XWiki templating and skinning system is extremely flexible and powerful.

Cons

Opal

  • No publishing capabilities, for the most part.
  • No analytics tie-ins.
  • Rather pricey.
  • Requires someone to really manage the structure in order to keep the tool organized and use it effectively. When this is done right, though, it's worthwhile.

XWiki Collaboration Suite

  • While the basic pieces are available for turning XWiki into an advanced semantic system, some features could be made available more prominently to the user for easing the use of faceted and typed links, paving the way for a new era of collaborative knowledge sharing.

You get for what you paid for. Opal has more features

XWiki Collaboration Suite

XWiki key differentiators in my opinion:
  • Fast app development framework with very rich API
  • Open-source strategy, opening the way to collaborative innovation

Return on Investment

Opal

  • Opal allows for more discipline in marketing as teams are better aligned on messaging and big moments.
  • Opal cuts down on communication breakdowns and mistakes, which in the end leads to more happy customers.
  • I think Opal provides the team with more confidence as everyone is on the same page. With everything in one place rather than communications being lost in emails, etc., everyone is more efficient and can work knowing that there is one source of truth.

XWiki Collaboration Suite

  • XWiki has a positive impact on the OW2 communication and collaborations strategies. It saves time when developing applications.
