Excellent platform, if you use Drupal and need high availability, you should seriously look at Acquia.

Oracle is great for a very basic blog. The look of ours was designed and built on the back end/code side, so I'm not sure if there are a lot of clean, modern templates like you see in a lot of blogs today to choose from or not. It has been great having a number of authors who can write content directly in the platform and then submit it to our content managers for scheduling and publishing. I think the biggest issue people may have with it is the look of the interface. It needs an update.

Pros

  • The Acquia open cloud platform allows us to easily deliver scalability, security, and high performance to our customers as we develop and launch sites.
  • We are able to leverage Acquia's professional services team for architecture consulting as needed for complex projects.
  • Acquia's large partner network provides us with the ability to quickly and easily find resources to support Drupal projects.

  • Permission levels are also nice so a random user cannot just post without a certain level of access.
  • I also like being able to update the code if necessary.
  • It's easy for users to access and write, and there's a nice workflow to review any content before it gets published.

Cons

  • Acquia's pricing is sporadic across each product offering and for each industry vertical. Making pricing more standard across the board would help alleviate some of the doubt from our clients when they go to Acquia's site to see different products.
  • Acquia's BLT is a new and innovative product, but still lacks a lot of use cases. This comes with more implementation examples which will definitely come with time.
  • There is sometimes an inconsistency among different Acquia sales people and account managers. This results in a vastly different experience when bringing clients to Acquia. Mixed with Acquia's strange salesperson geographic/industry allocation, this has caused confusion for us and our clients. We'd love to see Acquia reps be more consistent across the board.

Easy to use, and supporting several permutations, the CM suite is an excellent solution for a mid to large size business. It's meant to be used by a team, and the functionality can work across websites and landing pages. There's also the high benefit of translation management, providing support for localized products.

Don't forget about customer service once you have a closed the sale with a customer. Oracle seemed to not care about our needs/timeline after we gave them our Purchase Order

While OCM was a lot more money, they were able to prove to us that they are a much better solution to use and worth the extra cost. The reporting, capabilities along with the analytics that was easy to download was a big discussion factor for us.

  • Great way to post about the company, and ensuring that the marketing team can track the effectiveness of strategies without involving the product teams.
  • Understand that the software isn't the biggest cost of a blogging program. It's the time and resources it takes to create the content. It's easy to set a schedule/ed call in their solution and assign topics to people (with deadlines).
  • To show management that we have hit out KPIs and thus need more budget for other blogs.
