DNN Continues the Journey Beyond Web Content Management with Evoq 8

28 January, 2015 - 11:46
The first time I ever heard about customer experience management was at CMS Expo 2012. In one of the sessions, Robert Rose spoke about experience management. Rose spent much of his time warning the audience that their CMS needs to do more than just content management . Yesterday, DNN made their announcement that with Evoq 8 they too are now ready to "move beyond web content management" and enable "marketers to publish, personalize, and measure content anywhere online". The improvements in Evoq 8 are solid with features focused on today's marketing needs for better customer engagement. 

Evoq 8 allows DNN to introduce to its customers integration with cloud content repositories, real-time personalization, content analytics, and advocacy marketing capabilities. To be honest, many of these features and improvements in Evoq 8 we have seen in other recent content management platforms. This is why some critics that have suggested that "DNN is making this transition rather late in the game, at a point when there are a number of tools for content marketing". The criticism is understandable, but the term "late" to describe Evoq 8 or DNN is inaccurate. Instead, Evoq 8 is the fruits of DNN's long-term strategic plan for how best to move the ball forward.

Become a Better Marketer with Big Data

15 January, 2015 - 12:01

Technology is getting faster and smarter. Computers are now able to recognize and learn patterns, and make decisions in real-time. Their improved analytic and decision-making abilities allow them to outperform humans in areas such as medical diagnoses, legal recognition and customized marketing campaigns.

The era of big data has only furthered the usefulness of computers. Marketers now have massive amounts of customer information at their disposal. Using big data analytics allows markers to gain deeper insights and create more detailed models to improve marketing strategies. However, this isn’t an easy transition. Traditionally, marketers had pieces of information about their audience and ads, but mainly relied on intuition when making decisions and building business strategies.
