Hi Florian,

This is a favorite topic of mine. I used to work for Documentum and really
have gained a ton of insight into the ECM world. My colleagues and I
presented a case study at the DUX2003 conference this past June.

By no means is this a final GUI, but more a case study of why it means to
build an ECM product.

Florian, b4 I could really recommend an interface to you I'd really need to
know more about the application you are working on. What CM features you are
using, what type of users, what contexts, etc. etc.?

I can recommend that Zope/Plone is a good start for an open-source system. I
also like systems like ManageE and Mango. These are all for smaller scale
(non-Enterprise) stuff.

Good luck!

Hi David&Florian,

Is there a good usability and functionality study about content
management systems EMC.

I've recently started a re-design of web site with EMC and
I've found out that the person responsible for the editorial work
of the content (the updating etc) found EMC extremely hard to use.

best regards
Mitja

I recently attended a "Content Management for Information Architects"
full-day pre-conference session (sponsored by AIfIA) at the annual
Information Architecture Summit. This is an area where I don't have
have a lot of prior background, and what I found very interesting was
the level of antipathy in the information architecture community
towards most of the CM vendors. There seems to be a general feeling
that most of the products on the market don't do a very good job, in
terms of either functionality or usability. I'm not going to try to
summarize the day's worth of presentations beyond that right now, nor
comment on specific vendors, but take a look at the following web site:

Also, the following web page (on the above website) has links to video
of many of the presentations given at that session.
