Interesting juxtaposition of stories: on the one hand, Line56 points out that we see that there are more tools that allow departmental-level organizations to develop similar but targeted small portals, while a CRM Daily article notes how large content manager players such as Vignette are scrambling to reposition and reprice their offerings for smaller deployments. It oftentimes seems to be the case these days that publishing tools that were originally scaled for large commercial publishers and corporate-level deployment are not well tuned to the new environment of locally-enabled publishing, allowing companies worldwide to fill the void with light, effective, and inexpensive solutions. And as we see in a story from South Africa, sometimes local solutions will get the nod over big foreign names.
