For a new site: 1. Are there any hosting requirements? eZ Publish works best on a traditional LAMP stack. 2. What is the expertise of the development and systems administrations individuals? There should be some PHP development experience and a solid level of Apache and MySQL hosting. 3. Who will be managing the content of the site? What is their bandwidth for training? For ongoing content changes?
Read full review Pros Creating separate pages is easy and straightforward and only requires basic basic knowledge to get started Advanced API calls can be easily built. Read full review Content Taxonomy: Content is managed in a tree. Though taxonomy vs folksonomy is a near-religious debate among professionals, clients seeing the system for the first time just seem to "get it" more often. Content Flexibility: Common content types such as blog posts and articles are available out of the box. However, customizing these and creating new content types is very easy. Developer Friendly: Developers need only a little PHP experience to get started. Of course being an expert doesn't hurt and opens the door for the development of custom modules. Read full review Cons The organization of the application is poor and some elements could be more easily accessible not buried in menus. There is little to no community around the application and what does exist is out of date. Does not work well with our IBM applications as well as you would expect, which seems a common issue with IBM products.

Myself along with other developers I have trained, found this to be one of the biggest hurdles. Layout of physical files: The system decides what settings files and templates to use based on a hierarchy of modules. The same file can exist in multiple modules and you can find yourself deep within very similar looking folder structures, causing confusion during debugging. Community: eZ has a solid set of community contributors but the gap between it and Drupal or Wordpress is pretty large. Read full review Alternatives Considered

eZ Publish isn't as large in community size and number of installations as other content management systems. However, it's just as capable and met our needs:
Developers, system administrators, and project manager can all speak the same language during the development and maintenance cycles of a site. End-user training is very straight-forward. Vendor support is available. Client IT departments can access if need (developers/designers/sysadmins). The community is there (forums) and there are solid contributions (extensions) from both the vendor and the community.

Read full review Common knowledge: By making eZ a core offering, developers, system administrators, and project managers were able to communicate with each other effectively.
