Acquia

Acquia is well-suited for any Drupal web platform. I think it best plays in the enterprise space, either for B2B or nonprofit/higher ed/government. Acquia is a great solution for smaller web platforms, as well, but the price is typically prohibitive in these scenarios.

Titan CMS

Titan CMS works well for our small team of authors and I have heard first hand how companies with hundreds of authors use it too. In years past the software was weak for handling multiple language sites, if this is your need take the time to evaluate how this process works and will integrate with your translation providers. I've had great success using Titan CMS to manage a large product catalog with heavily detailed pages.

  • Utilizing a Filter to determine what shows on a page saves countless hours of configuring content that should be displayed on a page - it's been a lifesaver how easy it is to set up too.
  • Smart Search takes the search box and makes it magical. Common misspellings and alternate names can still send a user to the proper page!
  • Data nodes and filters can also be configured to Find a Dealer, Doctor, Location etc. It puts the power into a users hands and makes is easy to use.

Cons

  • Account support is limited on the Cloud Professional plan and requires you to purchase support tickets for the smallest issues, whereas other providers usually provide basic support free of charge.
  • Acquia is very expensive, so unless you're an enterprise level partner, then it is likely out of your budget.
  • The online documentation could use a refresh in design and can be frustrating to search through for answers.

  • I would love to see a "View this Page" button after a page has been updated/published. Every time I publish a new page, I have to open a new browser window, navigate to a different tab, copy the page url "example/example/example" and paste it after "www.mywebsite.com" in order to preview the new page/content.
  • If Titan and WordPress were in a beauty competition, there is no way that Titan would win. Titan's dashboard, buttons, etc are dated and bland, and is in dire need of a refresh.
  • A drag and drop to upload feature would be very helpful.
  • Creating forms is very cumbersome and the pop-up window in which the form is created needs to be revamped. The font-size is much too small and it is not as customizable as it could be.

Drupal is designed to grow with our changing needs and technology trends. Our hope is that as new features are needed, we'll be able to adapt as we grow

Love the product, great support for new ideas and any troubleshooting that comes up. Constant additional functionality being added to "base" product. Remember when friendly URL's were a common stumbling block with CMS software, Titan was proactive to phase that out even when it required extensive code work.

Everything we've needed to accomplish, Titan CMS has been able to accomplish. From multiple levels of user rights, document rights, tagging pages and documents to make filters do the work of content displayed on a page - it's all easy to set up too. Creating a content rich product detail page template and customizing a ecommerce cart to work for those using a dealer network - needing a request for quote, to go to dealers instead of a self checkout.

I give a rating of 9 out of 10 only because sometimes when we call support the problem is fixed for us, but the explanation is vague or none at all. We prefer to know what was done and if possible, if there was something we could have done to prevent needing to call support for it. Not a big deal really.

It was customized to include screen shots of our site and how users can access the content that only pertains to them as well as advanced training sessions for admin duties and everything that goes along with it. Training is in small groups and can be private (your company only) if you like too.

Talk to your project manager for Titan early on in development about minimalizing customizations. It seems obvious, but many times they do what you ask in the respect of "This is how we do it now, make that happen in Titan" vs. think of how Titan can deliver the same results within the confines of the base software. It's not a fault, just human nature.

  • Our website prior to using Titan CMS was very similar in terms of the way content was laid out. However, since using Titan, we have been able to add new content to our site in a much quicker fashion.
  • The new website and CMS has certainly helped increase the number of visitors to our site.
