Overall Satisfaction

We used IBM Web Content Manager for our website content management system and we did support for other companies that used IBM WCM different versions. We also installed IBM Websphere Portal systems and IBM Connections Systems and we did support for all these different softwares. We had 3-level support which means that we solved customers real technical problems. Some of the customers had very custom systems that had variety of problems and we had to solve some of them with IBM support.
  • Workflows are very configurable.
  • WCM allows you do variety of web publishing
  • User rights management is enterprise level
  • Search is not working well. We could not get it work even we worked it with IBM support.
  • Java Applet in Ephox editor is pain. You have to watch that you update your Java version correctly or You cannot edit anything. This might work somehow on enterprise environment with tight workstation configuration. I think that Java Applet editor is the worst part of IBM WCM
  • IBM WCM needs lot of capacity on database and appserver.
  • IBM WCM is so expensive that it will turn your ROI down fast.
I don't like Java Applet editor.
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.
