Oracle Content Marketing (Compendium), legacy

Oracle is great for a very basic blog. The look of ours was designed and built on the back end/code side, so I'm not sure if there are a lot of clean, modern templates like you see in a lot of blogs today to choose from or not. It has been great having a number of authors who can write content directly in the platform and then submit it to our content managers for scheduling and publishing. I think the biggest issue people may have with it is the look of the interface. It needs an update.

Great for if you are looking for content produced quickly, efficiently, and to a set of standards you provide. Not so great if you aren't very sure of what you are looking for. Like at a hairdresser's: if you are less specific in your requests you are more likely to be disappointed.

Pros

Oracle Content Marketing (Compendium), legacy

  • Permission levels are also nice so a random user cannot just post without a certain level of access.
  • I also like being able to update the code if necessary.
  • It's easy for users to access and write, and there's a nice workflow to review any content before it gets published.

  • The customization options for the written pieces you can request are endless and thorough.
  • Some writers are very fast and effective, making our link-building process quicker.
  • It provides notifications along every step of the writing process so that you always know where in the pipeline your content is.

Cons

Oracle Content Marketing (Compendium), legacy

  • Templates are a good thing, but hard to set up and require a lot of work. (Other Oracle tools are more user-friendly when it comes to template design.)
  • While they did a good job updating the interface, I still believe more work can be done to make it more user-friendly.

  • Some writers have a poor grasp of the English language, which lowers the quality of the work they provide.
  • The UI can be confusing due to the amount of things you can click on on a given page.
  • Can be difficult to learn to use due to its complexity.

Easy to use, and supporting several permutations, the CM suite is an excellent solution for a mid to large size business. It's meant to be used by a team, and the functionality can work across websites and landing pages. There's also the high benefit of translation management, providing support for localized products.

To be perfectly honest, every one of my concerns and problems has been handled by the support team in a very timely manner. If they could not fix my issue they assured me it be addressed in future updates.

Don't forget about customer service once you have a closed the sale with a customer. Oracle seemed to not care about our needs/timeline after we gave them our Purchase Order

While OCM was a lot more money, they were able to prove to us that they are a much better solution to use and worth the extra cost. The reporting, capabilities along with the analytics that was easy to download was a big discussion factor for us.

Return on Investment

Oracle Content Marketing (Compendium), legacy

  • Everyone had their own plan and executed them without taking into consideration the impact of another ongoing project. Compendium has created communication between teams that were not communicating before.

Zerys

  • Zerys has allowed us to grow our linkbuilding campaigns much more quickly than we would if we tried to create all of the content in-house.
  • We save so much time hiring outside writers to write content rather than writing it ourselves.
  • We are able to take on more projects than ever because we can rely on Zerys' writers to get things done on time.
