CMS Connected May Episode Revisited
It’s been a couple of weeks since CMS-Connected shot its May 2012 episode and considering some of the bombshells that let fly during the show we wanted to recap some of the more ‘colourful’ segments and perhaps loosen some tongues out there. Click the [Time Stamp] to fast forward to the segment but don’t forget to come back to share your comments.
[@ 2:06] - Really? is this the case. Is everyone in consensus that the CMS industry really didn't feel much of a recession? Is this just the natural evolution of the 'information exchange' increasingly moving to online destinations rather than some pretend economic factor?
Sitecore Plays 'Catch up' With their Brightcove Partnership Announcement?
[@ 10:03] - Co-host Scott Liewehr wasn't that impressed with Sitecore's press release citing the fact that many leading platforms (Ektron, Adobe, Drupal, WordPress, etc...) have already integrated Brightcoves' capabilities. To their credit Tyler backed them up stating that they're just one of a long line of companies that will also fall in line with Brightcove video integration. Big deal?
Amazon Prematurely Launches Dynamic Content Features to CloudFront Customers
[@ 13:20] - In what appears to be a 'jump on the bandwagon' effort to push cloud based dynamic content, our hosts discuss the low end features available in Amazons latest offering. Was Amazon a little naive to push this product which is so clearly a 'low cost, low feature' offering? Or will they gamble on their client base feeding them with rich and relevant constructive opinion in order for them to build out a truly worthwhile product. Shouldn't this have been done during Alpha/Beta phases? Thoughts?
Kevin Cochrane Delivers 'Epic Win' Quotes
[@ 20:50] - Given that the phrase of the day was Web Experience Management (WEM), Scott wasted little time in tossing a grenade at Kevin only for him to bounce back some atom smashing ordnance. When asked "how many of your clients have achieved 'web experience management'?", Kevin replied: "None of them". Bravo sir, take a bow. Then comes my favorite, as a 'grey haired' search engine marketer I've never been swayed by the cheat and exploits of 'black hat' tricks that have demolished websites after the latest 'Panda' Google update. I've been 100% motivated by ensuring our client provide relevant, valuable content. So we at Falcon-Software were especially thrilled to hear Kevin continue with his answer to Scott's WEM question; "Companies need to first ask; who is my customer, what makes them tick, how to I engage them, where do I engage them and what level of conversation do they want to have with me? And if you don't do this FIRST ... then you're screwed!. Thank you Kevin. Always a pleasure to have you on the show. : )
Open Text; Holding Company for Innovation?
[@ 45:04] - Is OpenText an innovation graveyard or smart business? Our hosts seemed to think that their business philosophy seems to be entirely acquisition based with no internal innovation. Buy up already established and mature solutions, ride the maintenance revenue with limited integration with their suite of software and then mothballing the works when it runs its technological lifetime. Is this a bit harsh or is there some truth to this? If your solution is bought up by OpenText are you pleased to see some long term stability or doomed to live out life in the technology graveyard with little hope of integration and continued innovative development?
