    Percussion Software

    Best suited for large organizations where everyone knows how to deal with Java in an increasingly Java unfriendly world. Said organization should be willing to pay a huge price for a piece of dinosaur technology

    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.

    Percussion Software

    • One word: JAVA! We don't live in the 1990's anymore! An AJAX/DHTML environment seems a long time coming.
    • Horrible end-user experience, learning curve. Our end users' inability to easily use the archaic, Java-based interface, means they send the web developer their content requests. This creates a huge bottleneck and completely defeats the purpose of a CMS.
    • Image mangement and integration with content is aweful and time consuming. An image processing tool called ImedImage was developed for Percussion at one point, and left completely stagnant with very little support.
    • Implementation is extremely complicated, given the complexity of the system. Sure, scalability is a good thing, but there is very little out-of-the box function. Don't expect to implement a site as quickly as with other CMS platforms.

        Bitrix

        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.

        No contest. I can't wait to get off of Percussion CMS.

        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.

        Percussion Software

        • We are locked into Percussion CMS simply due to the expense and complexity of migrating to another solution (and the lack of time and budget to do so). I long for the day when I am no longer required to support Percussion CMS, to say the least.
