Uncommon Thinking for the Common Good™Stay
There were many problems with our implementation. Our marketing department selected a design firm to redo our main site. That firm was quite familiar with T4, and so suggested that we use it. The marketing department selected T4 and sold this solution to the campus, and got some interested departments, but couldn’t provide adequate support to get them going; even after a year, only one department was in production. Our central computing didn’t feel that T4 was an adequate WCMS to meet the campus needs, didn’t have a large enough user base, and so didn’t want to support it, and has built its own site on Drupal.
It’s possible T4 could work on our campus, but the process for selecting this WCMS was terrible, and the implementation plan totally failed. Still, I believe we made the correct choice in abandoning the product, due to its being proprietary and having a small customer base compared to open-source alternatives.
