This morning (to my sheer amusement), I’ve picked up on Twitter that @daysoftware has challenged several CMS vendors to participate in what they call CMS Vendor Meme.
It went like this. LOLs are the best part of any morning 😉

Inspired by CMSWatch’s Kas Tomas’ Reality Check for Vendors, the challenge is to (honestly) answer 15 product-related questions. Day Software started off with a slew of screenshots and a score of 40/45.
Day tagged “OpenText, Coremedia, Interwoven, Vignette (where’s your blog?), Fatwire (where’s your blog?), Nuxeo, Magnolia and Tridion (where’s your blog?).” By the end of day (haha), only one (+one more not tagged by Day) vendor responded.
Magnolia CMS Plays In
Magnolia was the first to respond. Score: 42/45. Tagged: Jahia, Alfresco, OpenCMS, Hippo, EZ, Core Media, dotCMS
2. Installing or uninstalling our software does not require a reboot of your machine – Yes
No restart required. Why are you asking?
9. We run our entire company website using the latest version of our own WCMproducts – Sort of
Nearly. Unlike Day, we did not have three years time to release our latest generation of software…
13. Our licensing model is simple enough for a 5-year-old to understand – Yes
You can get one version for free. You get a better, supported version for 12k $ per server per year. Simple enough for a five year old.
Alfresco followed. Score 40/45. Tagged: Documentum, Oracle/Stellent and Acquia/Drupal
10. Our salespeople understand how our products work.
Inasmuch as a non-technical/non-web-development savvy person can, yes. But that’s why we have a stellar team of Solution Engineers ready to lend prospects, customers and community members a helping hand.
11. Our software does what we say it does.
Yup… That’s the whole idea, ain’t it? Download it and see!
14. We have one price sheet for all customers.
There is indeed only one price-sheet…
At the End of the Day
adriaanbloem: CMS vendors reminding me why CMS Watch doesn’t treat comparison as a horse race. Day gives itself 40/45, Magnolia 42/45, Alfresco 41/45…
Thanks, Day, for a good laugh 🙂
