    AtomicWriter is especially suitable for blog writing and for this type of work. It also gives different formats and restructures it with a great view. I think that's it.

    Optimizely Content Cloud

    Optimizely [Content Cloud] is one of the most Practical CMS's in the market which has all the necessary features to manage the website. Excellent speed and performance and user satisfaction in the front end are very good. customers and users are satisfied with the content because we display the published content according to the nature and taste of the customers and their geographical area, and all the content is categorized according to the user group. If you have a lot of content and you are a developer or IT consultant of a large organization that needs various and special facilities, I suggest you use Optimizely [Content Cloud] because it meets all your needs.

    Pros

    AtomicWriter

    • Makes my writing awesome.
    • Restructures it.
    • Gives me different writing formats.

    Optimizely Content Cloud

    • It's easy and fun to use. You can take someone with no experience in content management and they pick it up very quickly.
    • It is capable of managing multiple sites in multiple languages.
    • It has good uptime. Deployments are easy and with hot-swapping, you would never know the site was being updated in the background.
    • The searching capabilities are excellent. Not only can it index your own site but other content as well.

    Cons

    AtomicWriter

    • Nothing too bad.
    • Needs more features.
    • Should be less expensive.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Optimizely Content Cloud

    • Product Line vs Brand vs Manufacturer delineation, the website is built mainly to support brands and doesn't really differentiate when it comes to features (such as brand supplier pages) which is challenging especially when it comes to brand vs manufacturer. You might want to have both a manufacturer page and a brand page for a product which isn't really supported.
    • With a very large database (over 1.5 million products), there can be some unique bugs, such as slowness or freezing when searching for products. There are workarounds such as by using the filter button instead.
    • Could really use a "Product List" feature, so that products can be added to a list and then a customer landing page can be built for that list and email campaigns targeting that list can be used.

    Since I work on the implementation side of things, and do not directly own licensing for Ektron CMS, I have to base this rating off of how I think it will be received or presented to customers looking to start a new site deployment. I try to remain CMS agnostic, though my specialty is with the .NET and Microsoft stack. Because of the experience I have working with Ektron, I tend to be more forgiving with the shortcomings as I am familiar with how to work around them or past them from experience. Being familiar with the community available also helps, as you become familiar with the best approaches to find solutions to your issues. Each product has it's ups and downs and all of them are only going to be as good as the company or development team implementing them can make them. This is EXTREMELY important to remember when choosing a CMS, as it can make or break your expensive investment.

    For me, there was a definite learning curve with this application. I had to schedule time with a power user to ask questions and get clarification on a variety of sections. For example, it's not clear to the user how the topics are defined/gathered. I ended up in a completely different area that had no explanation or context that turned out to be a sort of "library" of content topics that had nothing to do with our website.

    Unplanned outages or errors are fairly rare in our instance. And when there are issues, they're usually fixed fairly quickly

    Working with Ektron Support has always been a pleasure. They are quick to respond, extremely knowledgeable, and truly care about resolving your issue. I have never once been disappointed with their response.

    Ektron is one of the best solution for .Net platform. Over the years have improved the performance issues that the previous versions had. My only complain is right now you can't do Page builder pages if you choose to have a MVC architecture

    Among all the CMS products that I've tested, Episerver had a stronger coupling with an e-commerce product (Episerver Commerce), and that was the main reason we went with it. Besides that, the main reasons why I wouldn't go with each, would be mainly:Joomla:
    • Many plug-ins in the marketplace were very poorly written, managed by very small/one person shops, and held very little reliability for a commerce solution.
    • Ability to adapt to business demands was very low.
    Salesforce:
    • Very high cost for implementing; commerce model didn't suit our business model well.
    Umbraco:
    • Didn't suit our traffic needs. While the CMS support was similar, the integration between Epi CMS & Commerce provided a better experience for our users.

    • Ektron has cost our non-profit huge sums of money with little to no return. Most of our web initiatives have been put on complete hold as we have begun to outsource most of our work to third parties as our website is a mishmash of technologies and patchwork fixes.
    • Ektron has slowed down workflows considerably and all of our content editors refuse to produce content they do not absolutely have to, resulting in the web content manager (me) taking on most tasks or retraining people on a continuous basis.
