Academic organizations face a unique set of challenges. Politics and public finance shortfalls force them to take a "do more with less" approach to everything they do including web initiatives. Universities are forging more and more partnerships that result in replication of content and the need for collaboration. Daily access by students to their websites mean that these academic organizations rely on their websites as a primary communications tool to their student body, resulting in large amounts of unstructured data to manage. Finally, academic organizations often have a multitude of existing legacy applications, running on a variety of platforms, making platform independence a key decision factor.
