I covered Vignette Media when it just came out late last year. I wasn’t much impressed. Vignette wasn’t impressed with my coverage either — so unimpressed, in fact, there is Part Une and Part Deux to the story.
Now, it seems that Vignette is readying for another release of Vignette Media. We shall see what they’ve got in store for us.
Despite going through turbulent times, Vignette announced upcoming availability of an update to its Vignette Media product.
The new Vignette Media 7.1 is still positioned as a digital media publishing platform aimed at TMEs (telecommunications, media and entertainment) and CMEs (communications, media and entertainment).
There doesn’t seem to be much detail yet on what new and/or improved functionality will be available in the upcoming release, but there’s a microsite here if you want to poke around. Some of the known Vignette Media 7.1 features seem to include improved DAM and ingestion of large volumes of media assets.
Vignette Media 7.1 should be available in the second half of 2009. By then, all logistics of the Vignette acquisition by Open Text should be sorted out, but I don’t expect Open Text to have much influence on the upcoming release.
