The Future of CMS
This are very rough slides and a very loose collection of my thoughts, observations and advice around the future of content management systems.
Certainly they are not imperative or analysing all details in depth.
This slides have been presented at TYPO3 Université 2013 in Annecy France.

  5. 5. Understanding the Future ● Why do we need to understand the Future? ○ We want certainty ○ We don't like to be surprised ○ We want to improve our current state ○ We want to be able to act accordingly ○ We want sustainability ● When did you let someone read your hand?
  6. 6. Looking at the last X Years ● What was the first content management problem you have solved? ● How did you solve it? ● CMS is a way to organise and govern the authoring of web pages ● It helped companies to inform about their products
  7. 7. Five thoughts on a future-proof CMS #1 A future-proof CMS will be recognized by its content repository, easy editing, high integration, extensibility & standard conformity.
  8. 8. Five thoughts on a future-proof CMS #2 It will run on distributed systems and be able to consume, enrich and distribute content to many target systems.
  9. 9. Five thoughts on a future-proof CMS #3 It should offer robust core functions and enable its users to deploy fast and easily.
  10. 10. Five thoughts on a future-proof CMS #4 Its usability should be as easy as possible to avoid barriers for a daily use and support the migration of content objects.
  11. 11. Five thoughts on a future-proof CMS #5 Last but not least it should be released on a open source license and have a worldwide, open & strong community around it.
  12. 12. Don't believe the hype! ● New Buzzwords all time! ● Marketing all over the places ● Content Management is obsolete ● Customer Experience Management ● UX is the new ● Everything will be mobile & connected ● Nobody will use CMS anymore? ● PHP is dead ● NoSQL ● Big Data
  13. 13. Believe in standards! ● Technically ○ semantic web ○ RDF/A ○ microformats ○ HTML5/CSS3 ● Business wise ○ Standardize your services ○ Know the redline between standards and unique feature requests ○ Observe Change ○ Offer consultation and strategic guidance
  14. 14. Legacy & Heritage ● Some food for thoughts ○ 75 days is the average "age" of a website ○ "We redo our website every two years, no need to keep the CMS updated" ○ "TYPO3 CMS is the base of all our web operations" ● Its all about the right mix between innovation and conservatism ○ Embrace the new and the force of destruction ○ Learn to preserve the essence of your work
