Plone and the rest of the field

Friendly URLs

Had that for a long time thanks to Zope

Repository Search

Default search certainly isn't bad

Not much in the way of facetted search out of the box

Tagging story could use quite a bit of work

Dependency Tracking

New link protection system was one of the examples!

It could be easier to know where a given piece of content is used around your site in the case of collage

System Management

Generic Setup Rocks

Policy Products are a great idea/innovation

I've conflated this with Configuration Management

Management Metrics

Plone could use some work here

There are collections for creating "queues" based on workflow state and expired content

This feature could bring lots of interesting capabilities

Other interesting notes

The ECM->WCMS convergence dream appears to have died

Lots of vendors are pulling the "social" out of their WCMS

Open Source is likely not going to be a separate category anymore -- FOSS is like any other vendor

Word Conversion

There's Enfold Desktop

In general, it just sucks everywhere; people don't use word well, and word makes a mess of markup

True Multi-Site management

Big strides here with 3.3 and Lineage

Non-browser clients

Again, there's Enfold Desktop

Otherwise, not so much

Usability

This has always been one of Plone's strong points

We have great consistency and a content model that people easily grasp

Should get stronger in Plone 4

Advanced configuration often means diving into the ZMI, which scares nontechnical users badly and feels very 1997

Integrated Traffic Analysis

We let people add Google Analytics code to pages, and it stops there

Configuration Management for Business People

Again, we have Generic Setup, which is a good start

Exports XML, which we expect business people can learn to edit
