It used and still is one of the most respected companies that is engaged in software development that focused on providing companies with content management services. One of the legacies that Stellent left the computing industry is its major Content Management product known as the Universal Content Management which is a very popular package of content management because of the pre-packaged software applications that can be used by businesses. This pre-packaged application comes with the Stellent Content Management System.
