Interesting to see that CMS Watch is using different modes to convey their 12 predictions about the content management landscape — an article and a YouTube production — which notes significant changes for 2009 according to their research:

“Obviously the economic slump will continue to influence buyers and vendors,” observed CMS Watch founder Tony Byrne, “but other technology developments — including the rise of mobile analytics and a new version of MS SharePoint — will also significantly affect enterprise calculations.”
1. Open source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) players get an initial boost
2. Office14 casts long shadow on SharePoint
3. “Taxonomies are dead. Long live meta data!”
4. Regulatory-compliance concerns reignited
5. Renewed interest in pro-active e-discovery
6. SaaS [software as a service] vendors expand offerings
7. Oracle falls behind in battle for knowledge workers
8. New emphasis on application search
9. Social computing diffuses into the Enterprise
10. Mobile and multimedia web analytics become key requirements, disrupters
11. Long-awaited consolidation comes to the WCM space
12. Buyers remain in driver’s seat
CMS Watch principal Theresa Regli added, “The last two predictions are somewhat related — we’re counseling buyers to negotiate aggressively, and some vendors will endure eroding cash flows better than others.”
