Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

I don't even think it's a matter of size - if you can extract competitive
advantage (greater than the cost and risk associated with the development)
from the way you move content around your enterprise, then you
may benefit from a custom CMS.

However, many of the existing packages are highly configurable, and will
take in their stride pretty much all variations on the normal themes. You
would have to be doing something fundamentally radical to go outside them.

depending on the size... for a company with a strong web focus in
their business model, yes... for a law firm with 10 national offices
and people changing attorney bios every day, no, they're better off
buying one in most cases...
