OmniUpdate
OU Campus is the best CMS product I've seen, especially when you have a large organization with less staff and resources. Also, its power, if one team likes marketing, handles all pages and that saves a lot of time and effort. I strongly like the components/snippets. Tags all dynamic modules.

  • The JustEdit feature makes updating content a breeze. With a small staff, we rely on others to update their content. OU Campus makes it easy.
  • Site-wide find and replace. I use the site-wide find and replace feature for all sorts of things - links, enrollment numbers, department names. It's really helpful.
  • Customer service. The staff at OU Campus answers questions quickly and is always willing to discuss the most effective ways to take on new projects.

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.

  • Formatting. The page can sometimes look very differently when published than what it looks like while editing. Some improvements have been made in this area with version 10 however.
  • Find and replace. The command+F needs to find text on the page while editing, not present an actual find and replace dialog box. At least give me the option to simply "find" the text I'm looking for. The dialog box just gets in the way most of the time.
  • There is not a way to "unpublish" items. At least not a way that I can think of. I would like the ability to pull a page offline without deleting it. Seems like it should be done simpler.

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.

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

Before using OU Campus Content Management System we were using Adobe's DreamWeaver suite for creating and maintaining web pages. The core web development environment was cumbersome to set up. Non-tech people also had trouble understanding how the web works and how web pages are created/maintained. OU Campus Content Management System solved all problems for us.
