Blogging platforms, because of their ease of use and lower costs, are being used in place of the traditional content management systems.
James Governor, an analyst at Redmonk cites a case where blog software beat out Lotus.
One other thing that struck me is the fact that this is another case of a blogging platform beating Lotus in a competitive situation. I recently pointed to a Moveable Type win at Acatel, also against Lotus.
…I should stress again that this is an outlier rather than a full-blown trend. On the other hand, it should become increasingly clear to IBM, Microsoft and other content management, portal and collaboration players, that something is afoot. As RedMonk has argued before, blogs and wikis can in many cases functionally replace large scale content management and messaging platforms.
Some of the Web developers I work with are already building some great Web sites run on Movable Type, the software LexBlog has modified to run our clients blog sites. Say goodbye to high priced Web sites built on expensive date base content management systems.
