Clickability

As a true content management system it is great for site and content creation. It does need some help when it comes to adding functionality for using modern code systems that require server side scripting. For a marketing or public company site, it is an ideal CMS. For a SAAS type site, there could be many road blocks.

Magnolia best fits with bigger companies who can afford it and also someone who needs additional hands for content compilation and management. If you are looking for something cheap and trendy, Magnolia might not be an option for you. This is the next level of efficiency, but it comes with a price.

Pros

Clickability

  • 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

Clickability

  • Choosing ad size/placement should be easier than it is. Now, I have to re-create the whole thing.
  • When you "save" anything a pop-up comes up that is redundant.
  • Ad list only shows a limited number. It's not until you click on one and cancel it out, then you can see all the listings. A bit tedious and redundant.
Bryan Crowe | TrustRadius Reviewer

Magnolia

  • Difficult at times to upgrade versions - moving from 5.6 to 5.7 was time consuming, 5.7 to 6.2 also has been challenging but support from Magnolia has been helpful
  • To build and troubleshoot the CMS requires Java dev skills - it is a powerful CMS but one only businesses with experienced Java developers should consider Magnolia

As mentioned in the last questions we are going to use a competitor brand next year. I think the issues are trying to find and fix problems from the previous programer. The steep learning curve and lack of mobile and social sharing capabilities. Things that I like are the strength of the programing which comes with a trade off. The ease for those who don't know markup to make updates to the website. Clickability isn't the easiest and can be difficult to find the content that you are interested in. We will not be using it next year.

Magnolia is an innovative CMS, for example it is possible to use the ipad to manage the contents. Magnolia’s team works hard to improve the product; the community is small but active and the support for the enterprise version is good. Magnolia’s team asks the users what they think and what they need, and the new functionalities planned for Magnolia 5.3 are very exciting for example the content personalization.

My experience with Clickability has been mostly positive but there are a few areas for improvement. It's generally easy to learn and use on a daily basis. I can move fast and do my job with speed with needed. But there is some clunky functionality with targeting and page building. My rating would be higher if some improvements were made.

I haven't used other enterprise content management systems, so I don't have a lot to compare it to. However, Magnolia works well for internal users without technical expertise with some training and support. It's not the most intuitive system but works well once users are trained and become familiar with it.

I find it very resourceful and powerful thanks to its many features. While it does not lag, publishing large files is not easy. The software is not complex for people who have an IT background. It is even better for people with coding experience.

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.

You always get an answer based on your SLA. But you always get a solution. That's the successfactor in this case. To often i was frustrated about people in a company without even a clue what there product is about or how to solve a problem. Magnolia's Support Team does a very good job and try to help you in most of the cases

Alternatives Considered

Clickability

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.
Sriharsha Chekuri | TrustRadius Reviewer

Magnolia

Availability of extensions, or capacity to connect with numerous solutions is an effort that Magnolia made when other software never saw it. Browser compatibility ensures that no limitations of where or who can run the software. Flexibility and ease of customization is another outstanding concept that we find from Magnolia, and minimal or lacking from other opponents.

Return on Investment

Clickability

  • I know a big positive is the fact that it is always-on. We are the leading news corporation for our state, and in many markets, nationwide. We pride ourselves on our strong ethics in the community and thus need to exude reliability to maintain the trust of these communities. Having a website fail periodically erodes that reliable perception.
  • It has allowed different areas of the company to approach our team and work in a cohesive manner.
Dave Sell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Magnolia

  • Has provided our organization with an easy-to-use CMS. Even inexperienced web page builders can create content.
  • Has allowed us to create a bilingual website that reaches a large audience while meeting language requirements.
  • Common templates have allowed us to create a cohesive website.
