Multiple Overlays of Considerations
Complicating the selection process were the multiple overlaying decisions of technology choices, potential skill building, and the choice of enterprise platforms—which is hardly conducive to simple “apples to apples” comparison. Sorting through these considerations is one of TBG’s strengths and this project was no different, in that we bring to bear not only knowledge of CMS best practices, but also an intimate understanding of the enterprise and mid-market CMS/WCM options, and substantial large-site developer experience. Working through a process that included requirements definition, independent research, multiple meetings with vendors, conversations with references and multiple check backs on technical points, we were able to come to a recommendation and reach consensus with Stanley on a new platform. (For reasons of client confidentiality, we unfortunately can’t name the platform).
