IBM Web Content Manager was originally known as Aptrix, created by an independent software company called Presence Online. After IBM bought the company in 2003, Aptrix was renamed IBM Workplace Web Content Management. It was renamed IBM Lotus Web Content Management in 2008 with the version 6.1 release of the product. In 2011, the product was renamed again to IBM Web Content Manager.
