Site-Building Tools Offer Low-Cost Options
Plone rules the roost, but Traction Software's TeamPage is worth the price for some sites.It is clearly the best of times for companies that want a cost-effective way to build Web sites or intranets that leverage some of the best features of portals, collaborative workgroup environments and streamlined Web publishing systems. These companies can choose from a variety of mature and very capable open-source systems, such as Plone; emerging low-cost commercial options, such as Traction Software Inc.s TeamPage; and even SharePoint Services in Microsoft Corp.s Windows Server 2003.
Although these products do not compete with and cannot match the features of high-end enterprise portals, collaborative environments or content management systems, their mix of features can be highly compelling and effective for building a dynamic intranet or Web site.
