Legacy CMS Solutions
OpenText Web Solutions (previously known as RedDot CMS) provides a web content management solution that facilitates the management of multiple websites worldwide to further develop their global presence. OpenText Web Solutions is particularly interesting Content Management System for companies that manage global websites requiring websites in local languages and require high level of personalization. For small and mid-size businesses, OpenText Web Solutions provides a simple and cost-effective tool for expanding globally.
As great a CMS as OpenText Web Solutions is, it can be problematic. Developers without substantial experience can find themselves struggling to resolve bugs and optimize performance. Many current OpenText Web Solutions customers have questioned whether to move a new CMS given several WCM acquisitions by OpenText. We believe that even if OpenText ultimately takes their combined CMS solutions offerings in a radically different direction – your current investments remain viable and are practical for achieving the organization goals of 2013 and beyond. Many existing OpenText customers are better off investing in Web 2.0 / 3.0 enhancements, upgrades, support and design improvements. We have extensive experience in enhancing OpenText Web Solutions to improve current investments rather than looking for a new CMS framework. Upgrading, performance-tuning, redesigning templates, etc, will deliver a better ROI particularly while companies are still guarding their IT budgets given the continued pressures in the economy.
