An end to end Web content management tool.

What do you like best?

TeamSite is still the best off the rack WCM item. It has all elements that a Web Content Management ought to have including templates, workflow and substance administration modules. It is anything but difficult to utilize and just works. It is effective and fit for taking care of even the biggest of sites. It has been proved really helpful in acquiring customers.

What do you dislike?

TeamSite is based on a stage that is difficult to bolster - you'll need specific ability sets to design it and bolster it. Under the hood the item still runs extremely old complex configuration. One of the things which I felt was that OpenText TeamSite is costly to buy and own and is a bit overpriced. Apart from this, pretty much satisfying experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It permits us to deal with numerous destinations from one Web Content Management software and to guarantee a solid level of security. Most of my activities are undertaking scale WCM usage that by and large last up to a year.

Simple to use CMS

What do you like best?

TeamSIte's foundation guarantees that your site is behind an exceptionally secure layer of insurance. This permits us to execute best practices over the greater part of our web properties. There were a few repetition assignments I expected to finish each day, so I could change and adjust as much as I had to the local usefulness of Teamsite by doing overhauls in CMS amicable path.

What do you dislike?

It's not the most noticeably bad CMS I've ever utilized. Maybe absence of correspondence around overhaul requirements for our clients however I think I've not discovered information in right thing on the site. Lots of bugs and disturbances because of combination with TeamSite.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The organization that I work for offers composed and created sites, so we are frequently taking care of our customer's issues as opposed to our own. TeamSite is a genuine valuable instrument to manufacture a simple life for our clients. We had numerous engineers chipping away from various areas with particular nearby arranging ranges and to see it meet up and spill out of one page to another was pleasant.

Easy to use!

What do you like best?

Simple and easy to use, the different branches make it easy to organise folders to make it quicker to navigate around the site. Easy to push pages live, great to be able to see them in a queue before you actually push them in the workflow. Great template for building pages with being able to just drag and drop components right on to it. Saves a lot of time being able to do this as you aren't messing around having to locate the right files.

Easy to navigate as well, everything is where you'd normally expect it, easily laid out, user friendly and does what you need it to.

What do you dislike?

Think it could look a lot more modern, for a bigger company like HP, it would look better to keep it a bit more modern. I think it looks quite outdated especially when companies are having to look at it for large periods of time in the day.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really good product to be using to manage pages. Easy and simple to use, would definitely recommend it to save time if you are working on big scale projects.

If you want an easy to use system to use then i'd definitely go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

pushing pages live for a company, editing and developing pages through teamsite to end up with the page in run time. Simplifying and ensuring things are done quickly in an effective and quick manor.

TeamSite/OpenDeploy 7.3.2

What do you like best?

OpenDeploy is the best product they have - it is easy to use and just works. The error logging is decent - sometimes you have to search different logs to find the source of a problem, but it's usually something that makes sense when something fails. TeamSite is still the best off the shelf WCM product.

What do you dislike?

The product documentation is horrible. It's not easy to configure any of the products. Some of the core functions haven't changed since the earliest versions of the product. It's very difficult to create customized workflows. Support is sketchy - how helpful it is usually depends on whether you get an onshore support engineer (better help) or an offshore support engineer (less helpful).

Recommendations to others considering the product

The trend is to go with open source, and if you can find open source products that fit your needs and you have the time and expertise to configure it to your needs, then that may be a good path. However, if you need an off the shelf, established and fully supported product, TeamSite is probably your best bet. It is costly to install and maintain, but it is still an industry leader and it works well for what it does.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are templatizing several web fragments for Marketing to use to make it easy to update a significant amount of web content on our public facing website. They can make immediate site updates or schedule updates out in the future - it makes life much easier for our Marketing users. Having a consistent platform to version and update web content has allowed the application development and Marketing teams to focus on other aspects of the site. We can track content updates for the last several years for auditing purposes.

Enterprise product for major sites

What do you like best?

TeamSite is in use at some extremely large environments. The scalability of TeamSite allows tens and even hundreds of projects on the same development server and push to disparate runtime environments independently.

What do you dislike?

The browser interface is a blessing and a curse. Because of the browser interface, there is no client install. However the product is dependent on the browser level and Java, which HP is not quick about validating. Many customers are using TS 7.3.2, which is a fairly recent version, but not the latest. However the official supported browsers are FireFox 14 and IE 9.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cloud offering is quite helpful. Have some experience to help. I have seen some very poor implementations that were not successful because of some back architectural decisions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have about 25 active projects using TS and hundreds of content developers pushing content live daily. Each project has their own templates and workflows to implement their own policies and procedures.

TeamSite is a powerful framework not a ready-to-use OOTB product

What do you like best?

TeamSite is a customizable framework of applications that covers the complete publication cycle from content contribution, publication workflows and presentation. Each step in the process can be customized to meet your needs. It is very powerful and capable of handling even the largest of websites (size and throughput).

What do you dislike?

It is difficult, at times, to work with. The TeamSite suite of products is not something you can install over the weekend and have a site up on Monday. Because it is so powerful there are a lot of pieces and parts to be setup/configured to give you the results you want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Engage with HP or an HP Partner to plan your installation and the actual installation itself. Do not attempt to this up yourself. Sizing, as with any vended product, is important.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

with TeamSite and the other products in the TeamSite suite we allow our business partners more control over their content while maintaining consistency in the look/feel of our sites.
