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

Overall this works well for media and newspaper websites that get less than 100 million pageviews a month. Also if you have your own developer and artist on staff you can really create exceptional websites, however it isn't required. There is a steep learning curve due to lack of published examples like other programming languages such as ruby, php etc. For most of your data entry and content editors the learning curve is minimal and can be taught in hours. Price is going to be a huge factor in determining does this make sense for your organization because you have to take how much traffic you have into account. If you stay within your limits great, if you exceed them media and bandwidth costs can begin to bloat your budget and make this a less attractive solution.

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.

  • Easy to get going for a business that has tons of content they need to manage.
  • Clickability offers development and design services so you don't really even need IT.
  • No need to worry about server uptime, storage, bandwidth, etc you have all the reports at your fingers for what you are using.
  • Simple template and content design system, easy to expand and add.
  • Powerful CMS and settings with a design and programming guide provided.
  • AkAMAI and Limelight CDN's can be used for powerful and fast loading in many regions.
  • Debugging tools to see how long specific templates and content load is exceptional. One can narrow down that this specific template ran X number of times and took this look and had to be stopped at X number of time due to exceeding set limits.
  • Having a built in Dev, Staging, Production environments for testing makes seeing new features and how they will integrate into your site seamless.

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.

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.

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.

Many of other content management systems similar to WordPress need custom installation. The server costs and upgrades quickly add up. Clickability while expensive, eliminated the overhead of managing all the dependency needs for a CMS. Clickability also works with its clients to understand the business needs and proposes the solutions accordingly. They have a good support team.

Return on Investment

  • It is fairly simple for our employees to make web updates via Agility CMS, and this greatly optimizes our employee efficiency.
  • We are able to load and host company files easily via Agility CMS Media & Documents, which allows minimal, quick content sharing between departments when other file sharing platforms are not available.
  • Automation platforms and tracking code easily integrate with Agility CMS global headers to allow us to seamlessly acquire analytics on our site visits and content access.

  • The ability to have editors update information or ad articles quickly is very important and Clickability makes this easy for them. Our business is information and it is crucial that we are able to get information online quickly.
  • From a programers perspective Clickability has lots of strength and is very powerful. The powerfulness also makes it a large learning curve to learn.
  • Being tasked with finding issues or fixing previous issues is very difficult. Due to the process of templates and content you often have to go many places to find one or two issues. I would like to see something that shows you this template is used on these pages and this content is being linked to these templates.
