The CMS All Stars

By Deane Barker on November 13, 2003

The Ideal CMS: This is from last year, but still very interesting and relevant. Tony Bryne puts together a content management All-Star Team, identifying what systems are best at what pieces of the content management process.

What if you could graft the best features and attributes of individual Web content management packages into one single, ideal offering? You know, sort of like those rock “Supergroups” of yore, like Cream, or Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young?

Well, even if license fees were not an issue, vastly differing product architectures would prevent anyone from readily cobbling together a “SuperCMS” from multiple offerings. But it’s still useful (and fun) to consider what packages would be best suited to provide specific features.
