Adobe Business Catalyst

The service provision is good the accounts customer service is poor so I would struggle to give BC a better than average review, if only they could offer customers a better accounts service then the value would be much higher.

Ingeniux CMS

This is a CMS solution that uses ASP and now XSLT and ASP.NET MVC environment, so make sure your servers are Windows based. Also, be sure to speak about audits to your CMS environment, this can save you time, money and energy if you intend on developing anything custom in the future. The more prepared your environment, the smoother it is to use this powerful cms.

Pros

  • The Web Apps element of Business Catalyst is unique among hosted CMS systems. It helps us solve unique challenges without involving heavy-duty programmers.
  • As a Hosted CMS, it has a lot of great features without a ton of cost or liability being taken on which is important to us.
  • BC has a growing developer community and has made significant upgrades over the past few years, which don't end up costing us more, and would be very expensive or time consuming in a traditional CMS
  • Our client's like that it is from "Adobe" and that it has Dreamweaver integration. This provides them with a level of comfort that helps us sell the project.

  • Organizing content has never been easier! - it's a matter of drag and dropping pages in a site tree where you want them to live
  • Powerful Taxonomy tagging system - does everything from adding a reference to your page which can be activated wherever taxonomy tags are accepted in your site to transforming user interaction to generate dynamic content on a fly
  • Good support team - always there to answer questions and help. This is a plus!

Cons

  • The blog module could be improved so there is more functionality and more freedom for easy customization.
  • Multiple files upload into the Media Downloads module would be a great feature to have.

  • I would love to see the ability to add inline comments on pages during documentation reviews.
  • I would love to see more print options directly from the navigation on the publish site. For example, it would be nice to right-click on a section and have the option to print that whole section (or even create a PDF that the user can download).
  • Customized searches would be a great addition.

Adobe Business Catalyst is our go-to web CMS and, until something comes along that is a lot better, we're going to continue using it to develop our lead-generating websites.

Again, this is my point of view and I speak on behalf of me the developer and not on behalf of my organization.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Business Catalyst outperforms other CMS systems out there. Because it's a hosted content management system maintained by Adobe we have to spend less time worrying about server setup, maintenance, and security and more time building better websites. We also don't have to worry about system updates and upgrading to new features as these happen automatically. Performance also excels on Adobe Business Catalyst compared to Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla. In all, Adobe Business Catalyst, with it's predefined functionality allows us to build powerful websites more efficiently then the competitors out there.

IGX has came a long way and is going even further. Once they integrate more self-support for developers, integrate with other languages and provide more detailed specific training, they will stack up to the leaders, Drupal and Joomla. IGX is on their way, I know product integrity is their main focus and as long as they keep that notion, their success will continue

Return on Investment

  • Better customer service
  • Increased efficiency in deploying websites
  • Customer satisfaction with the system
Scott Shefler profile photo
  • Company employees can easily locate product documentation now. Our team doesn't have to field nearly as many pings and calls from people looking for content.
  • The writers can manage the content much more easily now. For example, multiple writers can work on individual topics as opposed to passing around Word files.
  • We can single-source content that is duplicated across the site. This is a huge time saver.
