If you have a rather large budget and/or several clients to take advantage of the AMC, you would likely benefit from its all-in-one solutions. There are a myriad of excellent tools for digital marketing professionals to take advantage of within the suite, and creating a campaign becomes much more manageable for collaboration and execution through to reporting thanks to the suite's vertically integrated nature.

Sitefinity is a great fit for medium to enterprise level websites that require a robust WCM solution that can integrate with other systems, be customized to meet business requirements and can scale as needed. Implementation will require a partner or individual that is well-versed in Sitefinity. If implemented correctly, managing content for non-technical and business users is very simple and straightforward.

Pros

  • End-to-end digital marketing suite gives you all the tools you need to create, strategize, execute and track a digital campaign.
  • The Experience Manager is great for managing campaign assets and group collaboration.
  • Targeting has been solid to reach audiences with content that is personalized to their interests.
  • Adobe Analytics has proven to be quite competitive in showcasing our ROI to clients.

  • We use Sitefinity's module builder for managing a lot of custom data types--think database tables but you get an interface for free. The modules come with widgets for common basic functionality and customizable widget templates, but for complete control, we often build custom widgets that utilize the API to access and manage the data.
  • The MVC page templates and layout designers are a really nice feature. The page templates are hierarchical and each child inherits all the capabilities and layouts of its parent. The page layouts provide an easy way to implement bootstrap responsive layouts while making it easy for content owners to drag and drop widgets into content place holders.
  • If you know .Net, Sitefinity's API is intuitive and doesn't require programmers to learn new languages or frameworks. This reduces the learning curve for developers and provides practically limitless options for writing code to meet project objectives. Sitefinity also offers a Visual Studio extension called Thunder that aids in creating Sitefinity components. Although it's not strictly necessary, it's use does reduce some of the tedious development tasks, especially around creating custom widget designers, which can be created to provide content owners with niceties like an image or page picker.

Cons

  • The Workspaces tool is nice, but not as functional as Ad Hoc Analysis. I think some power has been sacrificed for ease of use.
  • To get this power, you will need a dedicated implementation developer and you will need to train up your own developers on how to maintain and update the tool. I think the power of analysis you get out of the tool is 100% worth the development resources required (by basing your decisions on good data, you'll save development resources in the long run), but you should be aware of this.
  • I think you should be able to stack segments in Ad Hoc Analysis as you can in the main UI.

  • Sitefinity has been very well designed for our need (though our needs are small)

Although a powerful tool, Google Analytics has been catching up in capabilities and is much simpler to use.As analytics move to the spotlight, more sections in a company want to have access to it. However, creating straightforward reports/dashboards and sharing them with different groups is not a strength of Adobe Marketing Cloud.

It is very easy to administer for non-technical folks. The editor and backend interface is among the best I've seen.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe's feature set is more robust and progressive. I don't want to invest significantly in technology, just to feel like I'm going to have to upgrade within a few years. I have more confidence that Adobe's products will scale over time than I do in IBM's products, with the exception of Watson.

I originally started working in Sitefinity with another company because we were a .NET shop. I did not choose Sitefinity for my current company, but they chose me because they needed someone with Sitefinity experience. I would always choose Sitefinity over WordPress because I'm a .NET developer and find it easier to use. I haven't used DotNetNuke in so long, I can't really compare. I think it's easier for custom development, but I'm not sure how it stands up to built-in functionality.

Return on Investment

  • As an agency, we typically see the highest return with clients that are more sophisticated and that have the ability to invest in multiple components, as well as have the internal resources and processes to act on the data and insights.
  • I've also seen less sophisticated clients invest in one or two components without having a deep understanding of how to use them or the expertise to use them efficiently to have a significant business impact.

  • Easy installation making no need for additional resources.
  • End user adoption has been challenging requiring some additional IT Support.
  • Compared to other vendors cost is great.
