These qualifications can harm the reputation of these companies, for they are deemed to promote vendor lock-in, use closed data formats, and are seen as using intellectual(More)
Web applications are evolving towards strong content-centered Web applications. The development processes and implementation of these applications are unlike the development and implementation of traditional information systems. In this paper we propose WebEngineering Method; a method for developing content management system (CMS) based Web applications.(More)
Customizing Web Applications is complex and result in possible complications when upgrading. The Web Content Management system 'GX WebManager' offers Web-Manager Component Bundles (WCBs): a new plug-in system for adding custom functionality runtime to the Web Application. WCBs consist of three, open source and open standards based technologies: Open(More)
Organizations increasingly utilize Web Content Management Systems (WCMS) to improve development speed, online flexibility and cost effectiveness for web applications. However, organizations lack the organizational processes and structure to effectively maintain WCMS. We propose a WCMS Process Framework for the operation and maintenance phase of Web(More)
The process of implementing a Web Content Management System (WCM) can be complex and time consuming. We argue that there is a need for a web engineering methods specifically addressing WCM implementations. In this paper we present the design phase of our Web Engineering Method (WEM). The design phase of WEM addresses fourteen identified key WCM concepts and(More)
The process of Web applications engineering can be complex and time consuming. We argue that Web engineering based on a standardized platform with reusable components is a logical next step in the evolution of Web application development. One popular platform to create Web applications is called a Web Content Management Systems (WCMS) which allows(More)
