ChatGPT's Take: The Evolution of the CMS

Have you played with ChatGPT yet?

Chat GPT is the conversational AI chatbot everyone is talking about this week. So what is it? An AI chatbot is a type of software that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to simulate a conversation with a human. AI chatbots are typically designed to understand and respond to user input in a natural and conversational way, using machine learning algorithms and other technologies to process and analyze the user's words and provide appropriate responses.

We had a little fun with it today to see what it has to say about the evolution of the Content Management System (CMS). 


Hi ChatGPT! do you think the traditional CMS is an antiquated technology?

ChatGPT: It is difficult for me to say whether or not traditional content management systems (CMS) are antiquated technology. The term "antiquated" refers to something that is outdated or old-fashioned, and whether or not this applies to traditional CMS depends on the context and how they are being used. In some cases, traditional CMS may be considered antiquated if they are no longer able to meet the needs of users or if newer, more advanced technology has become available. However, in other cases, traditional CMS may still be effective and useful for certain purposes, in which case they would not be considered antiquated.

okay, but are there newer technologies available?

ChatGPT: Yes, there are newer technologies available that offer advanced features and capabilities compared to traditional content management systems (CMS). For example, many modern CMS platforms offer more flexible and customizable options for creating and managing content, as well as integration with other tools and systems. They may also offer more robust security features and support for mobile devices. Additionally, some newer technologies, such as headless CMS, allow for greater flexibility in terms of how content is delivered and displayed. In general, newer technologies can offer improved functionality and performance compared to traditional CMS, but the best solution will depend on the specific needs and requirements of the school.

what about when it comes to real-time personalization? can a CMS do that?

ChatGPT: Many modern content management systems (CMS) are capable of providing real-time personalization, which refers to the ability to deliver personalized content and experiences to users based on their individual preferences and behaviors. This can be accomplished through the use of algorithms and machine learning technology, which can analyze user data and provide real-time recommendations for content and other experiences that are tailored to each user's interests and preferences. While not all CMS platforms are capable of providing real-time personalization, many of the newer and more advanced CMS platforms offer this capability, which can be useful for schools that want to provide personalized experiences for their students and other users.

gotcha. but isn't that now called a digital experience platform (DXP)?

ChatGPT: A digital experience platform (DXP) is a term that is sometimes used to describe a technology solution that provides personalized, interactive, and engaging digital experiences for users. This can include features such as real-time personalization, content management, and analytics and reporting. While a traditional content management system (CMS) may provide some of these capabilities, a DXP is typically more comprehensive and advanced, offering a wider range of features and functionality. Additionally, a DXP is typically more focused on delivering engaging and personalized experiences, whereas a traditional CMS may be more focused on simply managing and organizing content. Therefore, a DXP can be seen as an evolution of the traditional CMS, offering more advanced capabilities and a greater focus on delivering engaging user experiences.

that helps a lot. thank you!

ChatGPT: You're welcome! I'm glad I could help.


While some are hailing AI Chatbots as the future of digital marketing, it is important to remember that AI chatbots are designed to automate routine tasks and answer well-posed problems. There's no doubt the AI responses will improve in quality the more it is used and the vaster the resources it consumes - but they are the output of inputs. They cannot yet replace human creativity or expertise, which will become the currency of digital marketers in the decade ahead.

We are using AI in varying capacities at Ubiq - as to embrace it and understand it is the first step in establishing how we can use it for good and to provide meaningful and positive change.
