There’s a battle between curb appeal and conversation gearing up -- and the teams that understand the difference will be the winners over the next two years. Right now, Oracle is in the cat bird seat. Here's why.
There’s no doubt that IBM and SAP are firmly on the new design bandwagon. Both are trying to do the same thing – but IBM does it much better. Here’s why.
Our eBusiness index sites have been through new usability paces. Most haven’t fared particularly well in light of our tougher standards -- that is, except HP.com, which seems to be hitting its stride at just the right time.
HP.com's new "Meet the Experts" zone is the end game in a new gambit to introduce prospects to HP Services' army of consultants, managers and technical experts. It's a marketing trifecta that shouldn't be missed.
Launches and updates were the story for most of the enterprise software sites last year. But Oracle's recent changes make it the Website to watch this year.
We covered the launch — and the five reasons this is a horse of a different color — in a recent blog post. This time around we’ll deconstruct this new zone — explore what makes it tick — and show you the four ways this team is creating content that works.
I’ve been watching the whole grid/adaptive design and short-form content revolution roll out in slow motion over the past couple of years. So how’s the revolution going? To see, I spent some quality time on 17 major sites on our eBusiness Index. Turns out it’s playing out in four ways.
If you have an enterprise-class site and management clamoring that it be “just like Apple.com” turn your screen to EMC.com. Its simple architecture. Crisp content. Soon every enterprise-class Web team will want their site to look, feel, and act like EMC.com.
The Cisco.com team was just another army writing volumes of services content when they decided to redesign the Services zone in a revolutionary way. They stripped it bare, sent all of the detailed content somewhere else – and focused the new & improved site on what Cisco can do and why customers should care.
The fact is EMC.com hosts one of the most secretive support sites in IT. Its support documentation and features are completely hidden behind walls that only its customers can access.
