A hosted WCM?

ASPs died prematurely following the dot com bust of 2000. The idea of getting your application hosted by a professional hosting company was ahead of its time. However, it’s back, and with a vengeance. There is a resurgence of web hosted services, and I believe that WCM is not going to be left aside this time. The best WCMs are already Web-based, and so, it’s not a difficult to see that getting your WCM as a hosted service is a good idea. Now, it’s not for everyone, but if you have a manageable site (a few thousand pages), a few content providers (a dozen or so), and most importantly you do not want to be bothered with having your own Web servers, you are a candidate for a hosted service. In the next few days, I’ll elaborate on this re-emerging topic. Watch this space.
