Adobe adds mobile, marketing to its CQ5 CMS

The content publishing and campaign management suite integrates Adobe, Day, and Omniture technologies

Adobe today is announcing version 5.4 of its Adobe WEM (Web Experience Management) suite of content and campaign management tools. Based on the CQ5 content management system acquired from Day last year, Adobe WEM adds a capability to automatically reformat Web pages using Adobe's Device Central technology when displayed on various mobile devices and to handle marketing campaign management across websites, social networking, and other customer conduits. The suite also integrates the user traffic and engagement tracking from Omniture SiteCatalyst, the Web tracking suite that Adobe also bought last year.

The combination should allow Web publishers, marketers, and others to create websites that support membership and targeted experiences (such as custom content based on ID), integrate with CRM systems, and track Web-based marketing campaigns across multiple channels. The tool offers code, forms, and WYSIWYG design interfaces for Web page creation, and drag-and-drop application of tracking tags to individual Web pages and their fields.

The mobile capability adjusts layouts for various devices based on parameters set in the Web pages' templates, and can substitute, for example, HTML5-compatible H.264 video when displaying Web pages on Apple iOS devices in place of Flash video, given that iOS devices do not support Flash. Other enhancements include support of HTML5 video on desktop and mobile websites, improved community moderation tools, and the ability to create and install additional server instances on public cloud platforms when traffic scales beyond the locally installed server capacity.

The base WEM product, called WCM (Web Content Management), starts at $120,000, with costs rising based on the size of the deployment. The costs of add-on modules vary based on scale as well, starting at $50,000 per instance.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
