Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

Business Catalyst is suited for most web development scenarios. May suggest other options if running a very large ecommerce store, or if they need very specific needs regarding custom coding on a website

AtomicWriter

AtomicWriter is especially suitable for blog writing and for this type of work. It also gives different formats and restructures it with a great view. I think that's it.

The simplicity of this platform is the main reason. BC is incredibly easy for first time users and very streamlined for experienced users. I also look at the integration with other Adobe products in my company. Being able to stay completely in one piece of software (Muse or Dreamweaver) for a full design and publish make much better use of my time.

Usability

Overall it is a "plug and play" interface. The majority of the work is done in other software interfaces. Managing billing, user roles and custom reports are all that you need to manage in the actual BC user interface. For my business this is an incredible benefit as I have to leave my preferred software less.

I have used Adobe support for many of their products. I find that they are quick to respond and present a wide variety of support platforms from forums to online chat. Depending on the nature of the issue I am usually able to get resolution within 24 to 48 hours. With more complex issues I have never had a problem with Adobe dropping the ball.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

Adobe Business Catalyst has Web Apps which makes all the difference between them and competitors. Without that, BC would be behind many of the other CMS systems out there. Being a hosted system without any maintenance needs also puts it ahead of others. LightCMS is easier for clients to use, but not as customization and Evoq or DNN is over complex but a stronger platform..

Return on Investment

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

  • I used this service for people who had little or no budget, set up the platform and showed them how to use it. However, I would use it again if someone on a budget wanted a good looking site that could handle eCommerce.
