6 costly CMS selection mistakes to avoid

1,845 views

Published on

There are many good and valid reasons to select a new content management system. And there are many cases of customers spending a lot of time on the selection process.

Just remember that the selection of the system is only the beginning of a much longer digital journey – and often a challenging one, so not one to embark on every year!

As an analyst, I always find it interesting and stimulating to help customers through the CMS selection process. In this presentation I will wrap up the WCM conference track by sharing the most common and the costliest selection mistakes – so you don’t have to repeat them.

These mistakes are inextricably linked to some of the inconvenient truths in the marketplace. In my words:
* Easy is hard
* It’s the crew and not the tool
* Standards are nice, but elusive
* The industry is still young and very immature

This session will contain some sensible warnings as well as some actionable insights which should reduce risks on a number of fronts in your next CMS selection project.
