The content management system market seems to be on the course of a rebound.
- Amadeus Capital Partners and Northzone Ventures, together with Peter Larsson (founder of Protect Data, mobile security tech startup acquired by CheckPoint for $585M last year) have acquired a majortiy stake in EPiServer. It is a later stage deal for two VCs known for early stage.
- There are already about 1300 CMS firms in the market
- Service spend :The industry average ratio was 1 to 5 (for every one product dollar there's five dollars for services (This requires a discussion – high end system implementation may not possibly follow this pattern)
The matrix gives an idea about the features of EpiServer.
This is a space, where surprisingly hosted vendors have not made huge progress thus far. The reigning wisdom in the corporate world is to avoid building a Web content management system in-house. It will be costly and pose problems with maintenance, enhancements, connectivity and migration in the long term. In this era of digitization, content management systems are becoming a fixture in every enterprise. Homegrown systems come with a huge disadvantage. It may not be optional for every enterprise to maintain its own long-term road map for multiple and complex systems in a constantly evolving ecosystem.The dawning wisdom is for such costs to be better spread over a number of implementations by vendors whose survival depends on committing greater resources to the effort than any one enterprise can sustain.
