Honestly, I have not had the time to move beyond 1-to-1 editing/publishing of static content into developing interactive solutions, although I am seriously exploring an XML export of real-time course catalog/schedule data from our main ERP system to provide a better online class schedule search interface...
I am hoping to have something started in test before the end of this calendar year.
SUNY Stonybrook already did that (using OmniUpdate) and their freshman catalog is now online (using XML/XSL) and is published simultaneously as XHTML and PDF each time it's updated. It's online at: http://sb.cc.stonybrook.edu/bulletin/current/
We've been using OmniUpdate's OU Campus CMS since October 2006.
Some of the features I like best?
Platform-independence (I can manage content anywhere, on any platform, with no issues...if you can FTP to a directory, you can manage the content within using OmniUpdate's CMS)
Simple to train non-technical users (For the last year and a half, I've been sending a simple 5-step, online training video I created to show end users how to manage their content, and I haven't had a need for an in-person training session since)
PEOPLE USE IT (one of my biggest frustrations with rolling out a new web service is when nobody uses it after I set it up and make it available...EVERYONE who tries OmniUpdate's CMS continues to use it and almost never call me with support questions)
Template set-up is simple (but you can get crazy powerful with it if you want)
What are my least favorite things about it?
it's not free (so I have to continue to justify the expense to management who are of the mindset that an open source CMS would be a superior option)
"We've identified the domains we want to follow, such as .education (released at the end of March), .college, .university, and .sucks (I'm serious on the last one). The last three listed are still in the evaluation phase.
