Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

I feel that Adobe Business Catalyst (BC) is best suited to small businesses and free lance designers reselling to small businesses. The whole interface is very personal and easy to use from an inexperienced perspective. This makes it a perfect platform for small business websites or even portfolio websites. Its lack of different server side protocols and languages makes it perfect for the small scale web implementation.

DNN is well-designed open source platform that is intended to allow management of websites without much technical knowledge, and to be extensible through a large number of third-party apps to provide functionality not included in the DNN core modules.

  • DNN should really create good tutorials for beginners. It takes a while before one can understand on how to get started in writing modules and their implementation

DNN is a widely used product; the development team provides timely new releases and a comprehensive roadmap. DNN is a preferred choice when it comes to cost of ownership for small-size business.

I have not found anything that was as user friendly and easy to use with tons of Community Support as well as Corporate Support like Training Videos, Forums, Blogs, Documentation, Wiki, Free CodePlex downloads, Free Modules and then the DNN Store that has thousands of Skins and Application Modules to accomplish everything you need.

The support provided by Adobe is excellent. Though the knowledge base, forums, blogs and online chat questions most all answers can be found. In the event that you are unable to find an answer or you have a unique situation simply post a question to the forums. These forums are regularly monitored by Adobe and its users.

I don't see how it could get any better unless they moved their staff into our offices. You have available to you any type of Support you need or want, both paid and free from thousands of developers and consultants all over the world. You might even find some on Mars if you look hard enough.Also, with all of the available resources available from your Browser you can literally find the answer to any question you have in a matter of minutes.

I would never look back and question our decision to implement DNN not only as the Platform for our own use but also to use it to develop a complete turnkey system for our Clients worldwide. Everything you need is available and there is more expertise around the globe than you could ever imagine

Alternatives Considered

BC may not be as customizable as these two, but it is a much more of a secure option
Joel Lowther profile photo

Evoq Content

A few products stack up against DNN like Wordpress, Drupal, SharePoint. Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla all are php based systems, while DNN, SharePoint were all .NET systems which is what I preferred. Comparing SharePoint to DNN, first would be the cost of SharePoint server along with Windows license that is required if you want to host it. Another issue is, developing for SharePoint webparts is far more tedious than DNN and frankly SharePoint is more of a document management system where DNN can be used to develop a website very easily and can be used on a smaller and similar scale as document management system.

Return on Investment

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

  • The CMS has been a great tool to use to close a deal.
  • Assists those who do not have much experience with back end programing.
  • The platform is far more secure because of their closed source code than platforms like wordpress or joomla.
Joel Lowther profile photo

  • Faster Web development
  • Less amount spent in maintaining the website unless the site required new modules.
  • Many free and paid modules readily available
