I think it would seem appropriate to consolidate the following two tags

atg-dynamo refers to Dynamo Application Server; however, after Oracle acquired Art Technology Group, the server name has change to Oracle's ATG Web Commerce Applications.

So having the two mentioned tags can be confusing.

If is only used to refer to ATG Web Commerce Applications, I would rather merge with .

Then, if it is possibile to use a tag that is an explicit reference to ATG Web Commerce Applications, and which is not too long, I would eventually make  a synonym of that tag. seems too long, to me.

Merging atg with atg-dynamo is also good idea. However, I would suggest to leave atg as atg-dynamo seems to be a bit "obsolete" now. Also number of questions with atg-dynamo is only 4 (vs. 55 with atg tag). Also I would not add atg-web-commerce as most people familiarized with ATG connect it to E-Commerce servers. Similar thing is with azure where people know it is Windows Azure (that's why windows-azure is synonym to azure). –  Tom Jan 17 '13 at 11:12
Actually, atg is similar to microsoft; if microsoft were used to mean Microsoft Windows, it would be replaced with windows. I don't think there is risk of confusing atg-web-commerce with servers, since the tag is used on Stack Overflow, not Server Fault. –  kiamlaluno Jan 17 '13 at 11:24
I don't think there is risk of confusing atg-web-commerce with servers either. My suggestion to use atg instead of atg-web-commerce was purely to keep tag as concise as possible. –  Tom Jan 17 '13 at 11:39
atg could be about any product made from ATG, or it could be used with a different meaning. Three-letter tags are generally more prone to misuses, if the acronym is not well known (e.g. svg). Being concise is fine, but there are times where it is not possible. (See http-status-code-500, for example.) –  kiamlaluno Jan 17 '13 at 12:53
Yes, I got you point now and do agree with that. –  Tom Jan 17 '13 at 13:14
