We've been using OpenText TeamSite for three years now as our key web content management system. We've engaged the software to design our websites, and author and edit the content. It's been critical in streamlining our customers' digital marketing experiences spanning the essential social media channels (Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook to be specific). I'm using Teamsite daily to make my work easier by utilizing a single software to manage marketing content on all the digital channels.
  • The drag and drop forms feature makes publishing simple and quick.
  • Preview of customer data before sending publications helps us to deliver personalized experiences.
  • It keeps saying Path not Found when publishing external file attributes on the staging arena. I've never found a way to go around it.
  • Does not retain file owner's name when you publish through OpenDeploy.
OpenText is suitable to handle web content management across your social media/digital ecosystem, helping you deliver more personal marketing and increase conversion rates. For the three years, we've used it at our company, we've experienced notable growth in conversions from leads. It integrates well with CMS, and SAP hybris to be specific to help you drive your marketing smoothly. You will however need on your team, contributors with expertise in C++ coding to help with multi-channel data exportation and streaming

Building lessons with this platform has been excellent since the web platform is secure and no unauthorized user can access information.

  • Provision of editing services.
  • Publishing content in our social media accounts.

UC Davis Health utilizes OpenText Teamsite to manage our public and intranet websites along with our dynamic news and blog content. We've centralized Web content publishing under this one solution with customizations appropriate to needs of users and organizational priorities. We currently support hundreds of websites and web editors on the platform.
  • Customizable
  • Content governance
  • Role-based access control
  • Authoring interface
  • Integration with other web platforms
  • User documentation and training
OpenText TeamSite is well-suited to large, enterprise-wide implementations where customization, content governance, and dynamic content distribution is needed or prioritized. It is probably not ideal for smaller sites with simple architecture and few resources to manage custom implementation.
Our technical resources engage with OpenText TeamSite so I don't have direct experience. However, critical issues that we need help with seem to get the attention they deserve without issue. However, training and user resources for business owner roles are a bit lacking and some annoying issues with the authoring interface should be addressed sooner.

  • Works with multiple environments to allow the full testing stack to be completed
  • Template-driven to ensure complexity can be hidden from non-technical users
  • Template and log access requires elevated privileges and could be exposed to front end teams more easily
  • Moving content and code between environments requires manual effort

OpenText TeamSite is the Enterprise Content Management system for our company. It is keeping our websites updated. [Used for] sharing content across multiple sites (manage content once and display multiple), and personalization.
  • Personalizing content - easy to setup the taxonomy to personalize the content
  • Being able to manage content in one place and display it on multiple websites
  • Ability to have the business areas support content changes without IT help
  • Make it a little easier to setup the content configurations for business (power users)
Well suited for a business that wants to update content themselves and have the ability to manage content in one area and use on multiple websites. Companies who want to personalize their content and secure their content. TeamSite is easy to use and new associates can pick up making content changes quickly.

We use it as the search engine within one of our own products.
  • If you are nostalgic for 2004 style, closed source, poorly documented, ultra-proprietary, "enterprise"-ey type apps...this will be for you.
  • Draconian licensing methods; license is tied to IP address of one of the network interfaces so this product is incompatible with cloud deployment.
  • Very poor documentation - we've never been able to get to the bottom of an issue in a "self service" manner by using the available support documentation. We're always at the mercy of the sub-par helpdesk.
  • Doesn't lend itself to automation - configuration is some obscure format that is impossible to automate
Not appropriate for cloud deployments.

Would be great for companies stuck in 2004 or companies who are prejudiced against open source giants in this space like Elasticsearch.
