Vignette Repackages Suite to Reduce Starting Price
Entry level of Version 7 of enterprise content management suite starts at $125,000.Vignette Corp. debuted the latest version of its enterprise content management suite Tuesday, a product the company hopes will reverse its sagging fortunes. The Austin, Texas, company is splitting this release, Version 7, into three separate versions that will be based on an organizations size and needs. Previously, Vignettes software was split into two versions, Standard and Enterprise editions. Vignette officials hope this new packaging, which will lower the starting price for the software by about $75,000, will boost its license revenues, which have been falling now for more than a year. The entry version of V7 is the Vignette Content Management Group Suite 7, designed for departments that need to manage content at a single Web site or portal. It features predefined workflows, content types and the Vignette Command Center. Additional capabilities such as multisite management, a graphical workflow modeler, content integration, personalization and content reporting can be purchased as add-on modules.
Vignette Content Management Business Suite 7 is the next level, targeted at organizations with multiple Web sites and portals that use information from throughout the enterprise. It adds support for graphical workflow creation and multisite management as well as a graphical integration workbench for managing content wherever it resides in the enterprise.
