Enterprise CMS Highlights

It was abundantly business as accepted in the ECM breadth this year, with a few notable exceptions.

SDL’s accretion of XyEnterprise fabricated faculty

But it was Autonomy’s accretion of Interwoven that was the a lot of talked about

That is until Accessible Text’s acquired Vignette — although abounding doubtable Vignette was on the market.

In November Forrester fingered EMC, IBM, Microsoft, Accessible Text and Oracle as the leaders in their Magic Quadrant for Action Agreeable Administration while Autonomy, Day Software, Alfresco and SpringCM were placed in the visionaries box.

In aboriginal Q4 at Accessible World Oracle appear affairs to accommodate their action Applications with their ECM certificate services. Details were slim, so we’ll accept to attending for added facts there in 2010.

Beyond acquisition activity, open source players stepped up their game and look to be positioned well for some 2010 combat.

Alfresco got a added absorption from analysts and chalked-up an important DoD certification. Adobe and Alfresco abide to plan calm on Adobe’s LiveCycle Action Suite. The aggregation aswell fabricated strides with their billow alms via a affiliation with RightScale.

Paris-based Nuxeo launched US operations in the anytime accepted Boston area, added Digital Asset Administration (DAM) to their alms and assassin Cheryl McKinnon — ahead of Accessible Text — to run all-around business programs.

The DoD was on our alarm afresh as it accurate abutment for accessible antecedent software in the accretion process, in the anatomy of a DoD memo.

SharePoint in the Limelight (still)

SharePoint remained so ascendant that vendors big and baby rushed to body integrations and connectors. All year connected humans begin the affair of Web Agreeable Administration with SharePoint intriguing. However, we heard added about frustrations than successes.

The apprehension and aboriginal previews of SharePoint 2010 bedeviled the anniversary (and awash out) SharePoint Appointment 2009. The accident brought tidbits for abstruse administrators, covered the 2010 advancement plans, and spurred ally to advertise abutment for the product.

Web CMS a Super Dynamic Amplitude

Perhaps it’s been web agreeable administration that has apparent the a lot of change this year:

Vignette and Interwoven acquisitions were mentioned above, but we’ll afford a breach and pay them admiration one added time here. Confusion was accurate adequately broadly about the Accessible Text grab of Vignette, conspicuously about their 2010 platforms roadmap. There’s aswell been some whispers and chirps about contempo Accessible Text layoffs. Added on that in 2010.

Yes, we like able opinions as abundant as the next fella. Catering to such appetites analyst close Forrester Analysis appear that Web CMS 1.0 is clearly dead. Weee!

We all abstruse that the additional a lot of acclimated Web CMS, Drupal, will — with the accuracy and allotment of Acquia — go from not so user affable framework to simple as pie SaaS with the absolution of Drupal Gardens (now in aboriginal alpha). This something to watch in 2010.

The greatest accepted agency interoperability blueprint fabricated acceptable advance over the advance of 2009 and adaptation 1.0 is now out for accessible review.

HTML 5 connected to accretion absorption even if it’s added years abroad than we like to admit.

But admitting all the hootin and hollering, not anybody thinks this Action 2.0 affair is necessary.

Industry Themes: Search, Speed, Analytics, Semantics, Real-time, Accessible Antecedent and more…

Microsoft challenged Google in the seek amphitheatre with Bing. Accept the Seek Wars amorphous in ardent this time?

Google brought new acceptation to beneath is added with the Chrome browser.

Just about anybody was talking about the real-time web. Google apparent real-time search, Twitter opened the real-time blaze corrupt for all developers, as did Facebook.

The analytics amplitude was taken for a roller coaster ride if IBM acquired SPSS for US$ 1.2 bil and Adobe acquired Omniture for US$ 1.8 bil.

The semantic web pushed advanced with an HTML+RDFa Draft, RDFa metadata affective it the Drupal amount and some absorbing analysis on applying semantic web metadata to ample abstracts sets.
