Re: Content Mangement Systems #content-management

Hi Lisa,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The two names you mentioned - SharePoint and Jive - are interesting because they approach content management from opposite ends of the spectrum. SharePoint as a big database organised in a fairly standard hierarchical fashion with a bit of social media tacked on. Jive is the reverse, a social media engine with some formal content management. I'm generalising a bit, but that's the essence of it.
So before you tackle choice of systems, you should have a clear vision whether a more formal and structured mode of content management is of greatest value to your organisation, or whether collaboration and communication (speed of knowledge and information flow) are higher value.
I can tell you from experience that a solid conceptual vision of what you value in this regard will make product selection much easier. The ones you mentioned are not similar products, they address very different visions.
