Is SmartEdit Ready to Replace CMS Cockpit?

In mid-2016, SAP released the first version of the new-generation CMS management module, SmartEdit 6.0. All further versions were updating this module while old CMS Cockpit hasn’t been changed for years. Of course, SAP plans to sunset the legacy WCMS, and they consider SmartEdit as a “new WCMS”. I was wondering is SmartEdit ready to replace CMS Cockpit?

The CMS is a subject close to me. Many years ago I was heading the CMS development project and dealing with the challenges on how to make the CMS functional and convenient, how to find a right balance between feature richness and simplicity, and how to find a solution that would be extremely flexible and configurable to an organization’s needs. It’s an intense subject.

In this article, I am trying to compare the functionality of SmartEdit and WCMS and highlight my personal view on advantages and weaknesses of these solutions. The official “feature parity” is published on SAP Hybris Help, but it doesn’t answer all my questions.

Five things about SAP hybris you probably didn’t know

You will know why the ‘#’ create issues when used in hybris forms, why salt is with pepper in hybris, how Reagan becomes the President of Russia in hybris tests, how to fix the HAC madness, and how to figure out the website is built with SAP hybris. Today’s article is to entertain and educate. Some of the findings are really useful while others help you to start a week with a smile! 🙂
