    eZ Systems

    For a new site: 1. Are there any hosting requirements? eZ Publish works best on a traditional LAMP stack. 2. What is the expertise of the development and systems administrations individuals? There should be some PHP development experience and a solid level of Apache and MySQL hosting. 3. Who will be managing the content of the site? What is their bandwidth for training? For ongoing content changes?

    • Content Taxonomy: Content is managed in a tree. Though taxonomy vs folksonomy is a near-religious debate among professionals, clients seeing the system for the first time just seem to "get it" more often.
    • Content Flexibility: Common content types such as blog posts and articles are available out of the box. However, customizing these and creating new content types is very easy.
    • Developer Friendly: Developers need only a little PHP experience to get started. Of course being an expert doesn't hurt and opens the door for the development of custom modules.

    Cons

    Bitrix

    • BITRIX does not provide multilingual features to the user-defined contents, although Bitrix does provide multilingual capabilities on system UI specific stuff. For example if our site is publishing company news then BITRIX does not provide an out of the box feature to implement this in different languages.

    • The template language: Outputting content or doing something special with it requires use of the templating language. Myself along with other developers I have trained, found this to be one of the biggest hurdles.
    • Layout of physical files: The system decides what settings files and templates to use based on a hierarchy of modules. The same file can exist in multiple modules and you can find yourself deep within very similar looking folder structures, causing confusion during debugging.
    • Community: eZ has a solid set of community contributors but the gap between it and Drupal or Wordpress is pretty large.

        Mostly good support, but some times i got response late so overall good. Good options with Ajax load of contents with different URL in browser. Similar and better modules to show different contents. Good options for advertising contents.

        Alternatives Considered

        Bitrix

        I have developed some small web sites in Joomla but the problem is that these kinds of CMS platforms are very easily hackable.

        eZ Systems

        eZ Publish isn't as large in community size and number of installations as other content management systems. However, it's just as capable and met our needs:
        • Developers, system administrators, and project manager can all speak the same language during the development and maintenance cycles of a site.
        • End-user training is very straight-forward.
        • Vendor support is available.
        • Client IT departments can access if need (developers/designers/sysadmins).
        • The community is there (forums) and there are solid contributions (extensions) from both the vendor and the community.

        Return on Investment

        Bitrix

        • Bitrix Site Manager provides an out of the box way to publish contents on a search engine friendly URL. In this way, site contents more easily crawlable by different search engines.

        eZ Systems

        • Common knowledge: By making eZ a core offering, developers, system administrators, and project managers were able to communicate with each other effectively.
        • Training: Due to its content taxonomy, end-user training often went well.
        • Support: In our case, we had Gold support from eZ Publish which saved time and helped with customizations.
