I am moving in the direction of asp.net so am keen to have a go with dotnetnuke. Any experiences?
There's big money in content management for big organizations (e.g. Exxon), of course, which is different from popular websites. Players in this field include (by no means exhaustive)
Granted; I am sure similar functionality could be achieved with much cheaper (even free) software and operating systems.
An observation is that organisations have a habit of buying 'enterprise products' as they think of themselves as large enterprises. In reality they are usually mid (or small) sized and some how they find comfort and confidence in buying multi-million pound systems with 3rd party support in addition to vendor support.
It also appears that some companies also recruit thier staff in this way - they will pay extra for a person who has a certification in 'big gun' software configuration.
I think a larger issue is integration. Aside from OpenCMS and Daisy, which major open source packages work well with a J2EE environment? Because that Linux PHP server you stick in your Eclipse/Solaris/Oracle or .NET/Windows/SAP or other typical corporate environment is a red-headed stepchild your IT manager doesn't want to deal with, especially when the RedDot/Percussion/FatWire rep is talking up easy (i.e. inexpensive) plugins to NetWare, Exchange, Domino, Crystal Reports, and that 10-year old application on the OS/2 server that retrieves data from the mainframe (quite a common thing in financial services).
