2004 was a year when web content came of age, as more and more organisations recognized it as an asset, not some commodity. More and more organisations have begun to put content first, technology second.

However, there is still a lot to do as I'm sure you are well aware. Managing a website can be a frustrating experience, but it's definitely worth persevering with because we are making progress.

Please take a moment to check out our Content Management and other systems developed for the real world environment via our interactive tours.
