The group s name emphasizes sociopolitical themes, such as the conflict between the haves and the have-nots, in their oeuvre. The machine against which RATM rages is a government that has abandoned the have-nots. In this report, the content management machine is the solidifying establishment of enterprise content management that supports multilingual product features but does little to actively market and support them. Copyright 2003 by Common Sense Advisory, Inc.

5 Rage Against the Content Management Machine 1 Topic Meeting Global Enterprise Content Management Needs Content management has evolved from simple systems for handling HTML pages to an enterprise platform for creating, managing, and distributing a wide range of corporate assets. In their progression from tactical web tool to corporate solution, content management systems (CMS) have embraced such a wide landscape of electronic data that we define content broadly: Content is any digitized information that is, text, document, image, video, structured record, script, application code, or metadata used to convey meaning or exchange value in business interactions or transactions. Thus, content management ranges from traditional documents to web content to cell phones to telematics and beyond. This report opens with an account of interviews with managers responsible for one or more of their firm s multilingual applications. From this base of buyer experience, we review the technology challenges that face developers of global enterprise content management applications. We analyze the ability of today s enterprise content management (ECM) solutions to make the leap to global content management (GCM). This evolutionary step will be characterized by enterprise-class support in technical, corporate marketing, sales, and customer support wherever companies deploy the solutions. Who Should Read This Report? This report provides an overview of the software products available for creating and managing global or multilingual content. Because this report discusses technology trends, business dynamics, and specific products, it should prove useful to anyone responsible for choosing, buying, or using such tools. More specifically, it should appeal to: Any group that distributes global content. Planners at multinational companies, government agencies, military and intelligence units, and nongovernmental organizations that globalize their websites, documents, products, and other materials will learn what options are available for managing content.

6 2 Rage Against the Content Management Machine Business intelligence and knowledge management specialists. Enterprise software, content management, data warehousing, and other business intelligence developers, suppliers, and integrators who develop strategies to integrate multilingual repositories of structured data and free-form content will be interested in the tools that will help them handle global information more effectively. Suppliers of language services and tools. Language service providers (LSP) rely on software tools to increase the productivity, reliability, and quality of their translation and localization efforts. In addition, those who develop, sell, and integrate software products to manage global content will benefit from the discussion of industry, market, and technology dynamics.
