CMS Watch

CMS Watch is an independent source of analysis and advice on content technologies. In addition to the freely-available articles, CMS Watch publishes technology reports that provide independent analysis and practical advice regarding web content management, records management, enterprise portal, and enterprise search solutions.

Their reports help sort out the complex landscape of potential solutions so that project teams can minimize the time and effort to identify and evaluate technologies suited to their particular requirements.

To retain thier independence as a vendor-neutral analyst firm, CMS Watch works solely for solutions buyers and never for the vendors they cover.

Today, enterprises are making substantial and sometimes high-risk investments in major content management and search solutions. CMS Watch evaluations help mitigate this risk by providing effective guidance for a small fraction of the overall project investment.
