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.

Clickability

As a true content management system it is great for site and content creation. It does need some help when it comes to adding functionality for using modern code systems that require server side scripting. For a marketing or public company site, it is an ideal CMS. For a SAAS type site, there could be many road blocks.

Pros

  • File management within the CMS is extremely helpful as a hosting/uploading tool local to our web pages and content.
  • Ability to clone web page content across mutli-language websites takes only a few clicks, and translation can be performed easily based on default English content.
  • Ability to post shared content and link content to categories for easy organization of content on the web - post once, and serve the content up on the live site in multiple places.

  • The customization from page to page is the best I've seen in a CMS. Each page could have its own template and content rendering if necessary
  • The UI is fairly straight forward and easy to use. It can also be customized by user role.
  • The Velocity template creation is easily done through the console. No need to FTP files to a server.
  • The version control of each content item or template is handled through the CMS. No terminal needed.

Cons

  • Simplification of uploading files would be ideal - where all files are located in the Media & Documents section rather than uploaded directly to Shared Content modules. One home for all files helps us keep track of what is uploaded and what is not.
  • Better copy/paste handling of content from external programs (cleaning Word document formatting, etc.), similar to handling by Word Press and other simplified CMS would be helpful.
  • Greater control over global content such as headers/footers, multi-language implementation, etc., would allow our developers more flexibility and reduce our time coordinating with Agility support and using BOH.

  • If you are not constantly updating content then maybe this isn't the best CMS for you.
  • Turn around time on development can be lackluster and most find it easier to have 1-2 developers on staff for larger projects.
  • Over the years outages have happened but slowness is more common to due the shared platform and logic programming errors. This has improved greatly but still can happen.
  • The programming language behind clickability that is exposed is Apache Velocity. https://velocity.apache.org/engine/releases/velocity-1.5/user-guide.html While basic it is not as powerful as other web developers are used to.
  • The guide can be simplistic and more examples could be useful. Also cryptic special case features that are not widely can be troublesome.
  • Costs for storage, transfer and bandwidth can be costly because of limited options for where to store such content.
  • Development and Staging does not load on the normal servers so performance testing can be difficult to compare to production before launching a new template or code.
  • Extensive performance tools are in place because it is extremely easy to have non scaling, badly performing code as sites get bigger.
  • Most of the support team is based in CA, so support hours are geared towards US which could be a deterrent for European customers.

I am not a part of this decision process at our organization.

As mentioned in the last questions we are going to use a competitor brand next year. I think the issues are trying to find and fix problems from the previous programer. The steep learning curve and lack of mobile and social sharing capabilities. Things that I like are the strength of the programing which comes with a trade off. The ease for those who don't know markup to make updates to the website. Clickability isn't the easiest and can be difficult to find the content that you are interested in. We will not be using it next year.

I have used 8 other CMS at this point and I only found one other to be easier to use and they are not for this type of market.

Support

Based on 1 answer
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.

I found that some agents were better then others, usually you have an account representative and that I would consider level 1 support. To get really complex answers you need to talk with an engineer.

Have a developer on staff to work with them, even if you are not designing your site yourself.

Alternatives Considered

Agility offers a balance of simplicity and capability that other platforms don't offer. User-friendly platforms like Word Press do not offer our company the ability to fully customize our site based on our goals, but more adaptable programs like Drupal do not offer the support resources to simplify the structure of our site with pre-existing modules or professional development to meet our needs.

I think it is on par with what I did with Sharepoint. Sharepoint was not the easiest and you have to do many things twice to get it to actually display. I think the easiest I have used is Wordpress. They make mobile very easy and allow for quick changes and are very social friendly. The issues I have with Wordpress is that they don't have the power of the Clickability programing. Drupal I haven't used but we are going to start using them next year. Going forward it sounds like it will be more streamlined and allow for easy mobile and social sharing with Drupal
