Agility CMS
Agility is well suited for companies that want a balance of control and support. For major global site updates, these can be handled by Agility's support team, while minimal changes and updates can be performed autonomously by the company's own staff with ease. For companies that are interested in flexibility to reconstruct site structure or major global facelifts, Agility is less ideal because these changes must be handled and paid for through Agility support.

Netlify
Netlify is a static website host, so it obviously wouldn't work for hosting dynamic websites built in PHP, such as WordPress or Drupal. It works very well with static sites with a git codebase on something like GitHub. It has automatic deployments, which include preview websites. It works very well with this workflow. There are solutions for allowing content authoring on static websites on Netlify, but I would probably reach for something like WordPress or Drupal for that.

Netlify
  • I can connect Github/Gitlab repos or drag and drop code folders directly to host them onto the platform, and can customize build and publish details. It handles all granular details itself, so I don't have to worry about configuring everything like I would have to do on an IaaS like AWS
  • Netlify Platform has inbuilt scalability support - meaning automatic upgrading of servers to handle traffic, without us needing to do anything at all, again, unlike IaaS, where we'd have to manually configure scaling
  • It has a built in CDN, meaning static applications can be served blazing fast over the web without worrying about traffic or latency

Cons
Agility CMS
  • The filing system and search function are often difficult to navigate. Finding a file that I've uploaded isn't always easy to locate in Agility CMS
  • The WYSIWYG content manager isn't always intuitive. I often have to go directly into HTML editing to resolve line spacing problems

  • it is not aimed at it but first party laravel support would be nice.
  • their free tier was so handy, i wish they start some similar efforts
  • incorporate more WebOps mindset

Support Rating
Agility CMS
Support is always available and responsive when we email, responding right away that they are on the case, even if they are unable to solve the issue right away. Support will usually find the issue of our problem quickly and require minimal hand-holding, direction, or re-explanation from our team. They are knowledgeable about the platform and our instance and are able to run diagnostics with minimal information from us. When issues are resolved they always request confirmation that things are working as expected before closing out our tickets.

With no coding or setup, every preview enables reviewers to submit feedback complete with screenshots, videos, and annotations.Screenshot of Team overview in the Netlify platform helps you monitor your team's usage, showing you the number of team members and how much build capacity and bandwidth your team is using.Screenshot of Netlify Edge Functions help you run code at the edge, close to your users. Netlify Edge Functions use Deno and the powerful V8 JavaScript runtime to let you run globally distributed functions for the fastest possible response times.Screenshot of Discover, connect, and configure dev tools and APIs all within the Netlify Integrations Hub to extend the limits of web performance and team productivity.Screenshot of Build interactive and connected web applications faster with Netlify Graph.

Graph Authentication handles token refresh and scope management so your APIs stay connected over time.
