Being able to effectively manage multiple websites under the umbrella of a single Web Content Management System (CMS) is one of the most must-have requirements when selecting a CMS vendor.
Sitecore, the maker of a .NET-based Web CMS, knows that fact very well and keeps refining its multisite management tool called Foundry, which just saw the 3.0 release.
New in Foundry 3.0
Sitecore says that in Foundry 3.0 users will see new and advanced .NET security controls, enhanced HTML newsletter capabilities and Silverlight photo gallery support. All of those functions are designed to create and manage distributed websites, while maintaining centralized security and control.
In addition to support for Sitecore’s CMS 6.1., Foundry 3.0 made some improvement to usability in the areas of inline editing support.
Splashing in the Gulfstream CMS Waves
And some on the West Coast… With Sitecore entering the U.S. market in 2004 (and Canada later), among a wave of other Web CMS vendors, it was a good time to join the North American CMS goldmine picnic, but now is not a good time to lag behind.
From what was seen in earlier versions of Foundry, there’s still a lot that can be done to improve this piece of the product in order to stay competitive in the cut-throat market.
