Hi,

My company maintains more than 45 websites/portals and we are in the midst
of streamlining these to 8 core portals. Our portals are fairly complex and
dynamic.

One of our biggest challenges and requirements is to lessen dependency on
HTML programmers/developpers to update our content daily. We are looking
for an easy to use tool that allows content publishing rights to our
business owners and non-technical staff.

I'd appreciate any pointers on some tried and tested tools - I have come
across WEBGUI, TYPO3 and DRUPAL. If it helps the front end layer will sit
above - IBM WEBSPHERE.
Thanks for all your recommendations and inputs

Mayuri,

I am not sure about the context in which you are using "portal",
neither I am aware of the tools you mentioned. But I am wondering, if
you have seen Microsoft SharePoint. This is a tool which is meant to
solve the problems you just mentioned.

It is meant to be a portal tool. It does not have very good workflows,
but you can build one pritty easily. It has very good capability of
document management and CMS (although, without the built-in workflow).
It also does very good job of integrating with many enterprise tools,
record management, CRM, Exchange, etc.

And, as far as I know, it's licence/pricing is the cheapest. Take a
look. Ask any Microsoft sales person to give you demo. They are dying
to show this tool to the world, because SharePoint is the only tool
Microsoft (ever) developed indegenously. And it is worth a look.

Hope that will help,
Prady

Hi

Have you taken a look at Contribute (Formerly
Macromedia Contribute) a product from Adobe.

Its one powerful content management tool. Worth
investing.

Hope this helps

Mayuri,

IBM Websphere has its own CMS product:

http://www-142.ibm.com/software/workplace/products/product5.nsf/wdocs/homepage

which may be worth looking at since you have to integrate with
Websphere middleware anyway.
