Determining Total Cost of Ownership of Web Content Management (WCM) Implementations

A Live Web Event, Sponsored by Siteworx, Inc.

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2010) -  On Wednesday, October 6, Siteworx will host a live Web event discussing a topic critical to the success of those planning to implement or upgrade a Web Content Management (WCM) system. 

"Determining the Total Cost of Ownership of WCM/CMS Implementations," a complimentary webinar, is designed for IT and business leaders responsible for not only completing a successful WCM implementation, but also ensuring that their WCM implementation delivers a return on investment (ROI) for their business.

According to leading analyst firm, Gartner, Inc., in their recently released Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management, "The WCM software market achieved a total revenue of $890 million in 2009, despite recessions in many major economies, and will likely exceed $1 billion in 2010." With the level of WCM spending on the rise in the foreseeable future, the imperative for IT and business leaders becomes ensuring that WCM investments are tightly connected to business outcomes and results.

This complimentary webinar will share a step-by-step methodology to help IT and business leaders create a compelling business case for their WCM initiative and ensure ongoing support. The webinar will address:

  • The pros and cons of on-premise vs. cloud-based vs. managed solutions
  • Guidelines for estimating hardware, software, staff and implementation services
  • Ancillary costs that may be overlooked, such as content migration, web analytics, performance monitoring, and integration of the WCM with other software packages

"Siteworx has a wide range of Web Content Management (WCM) expertise built from countless Web initiatives, including open source, commercial-off-the-shelf (CTOS), and custom WCM implementations. We've seen many successes and a healthy share of failures," says Gage Short, VP of Technology, Siteworx, Inc. "This webinar is designed to help those about to embark on a WCM implementation identify both the potential pitfalls and opportunities to ensure a successful outcome," he adds.
