Concrete5

If you have some knowledge of coding or website editing, Concrete5 is a great choice. You can go into their marketplace and find additional add-ons or modules that you would like to add to your site. If you are looking for a simple web site hosting service, this may not be the option for you.

Jahia Digital Experience Platform

Jahia Digital Experience Platform is well suited for your intranet and internet sites. It allows you to personalize the user experience thanks to the Unomi CDP so as to obtain better conversion rates. On the other hand, the platform is less suitable for small showcase sites because hosting a solution based on java has a different cost from other solutions based on php for example.

Pros

Concrete5

  • Concrete5 provides a very easy interface for website owners/administrators. Adding pages and content is simple and straightforward.
  • Concrete5.7+ works well on mobile devices such as phones and tablets - including admin editing tools.
  • Concrete5 has a good user community and support forums, as well as paid add-ons which provide advanced functionality which other open-source CMSs can lack.

Jahia Digital Experience Platform

  • Its customization capabilities, Jahia does not disrupt creative autonomy as some of its competitors do. On the contrary, its modules and components are totally customizable, ensuring that you have your unique identity on the web without seeming similar or a "copy" of something already online.
  • The ease of use, Jahia is extremely simple and easy to use, even users without great experience will have no problem dealing with it thanks to its intuitive interface.
  • The technical support of Jahia is another strong point, service is always fast and enlightening, they really do their best to help in every way possible.

Cons

Concrete5

  • Concrete5 uses Bootstrap in their UI so when developing themes that may also use Bootstrap there can be conflicts using the same classes. This has been solved somewhat in 5.7, however, by use of namespacing.
  • Concrete5's MVC structure is great in how easy you can override blocks. However, if you go nuts you can quickly rack up an obscene amount of stylesheet and "is" calls in the head of the document which can hurt performance.
  • It's been criticized for having a rather large amount of files, which can be a problem on cheaper shared hosting, but I can't speak to that personally. We've never had a problem.

  • Review workflows are not as intuitive as you'd imagine. This is an area in the UX where the editor has work to do. It works well but it could be more intuitive
  • Pricing should be more progressive and more aggressive
  • Jahia deserves more publicity. The product is excellent but nobody knows it. The editor should focus on marketing.

Its a very solid, very consistent package that never lets you down or leaves you frustrated. It gets a 10/10 because its so much better than anything else currently available. It also gets a 10/10 because, even if not compared to others, it does not leave you wanting for features or functionality. It is an excellent piece of software that will answer almost every CMS need.

I would not use Jahia as it proved too complex for our needs and didn't help our over goal of customer satisfaction. Along with the man hours to build and execute, it wasn't worth the hassle

I have used it on over 30 projects in the past 3 years and it's still a pleasure to work in. Doesn't always have all the answers, no CMS does, but I still find it very easy to use from prototyping to working to final project. Also there is no problem working on a localhost then moving to a live site, like there is with WordPress. It's my go to app in my CMS quiver.

The interface and ergonomics are designed to facilitate the use of the product. The creation of template is easy which allows to minimize the actions necessary for the provision of content.

Since it's not tied to a central server (other than for authorizing updates and assigning licenses to specific sites), it's available pretty much 100% of the time.

The site works extremely well, the front end flies, searches and form submissions are very fast indeed.The reason its a 9 not a ten? the back end can be a little slow at times, and this is unfair, because for the backend to be so amazing, it has to do a huge amount of work!

Concrete5 is open-source and has an incredibly strong, polite, and supportive community. You can get an answer to nearly anything you want to do with Concrete5 by googling for it, searching the Concrete5 discussion forums or stack overflow, or posting your question to the forum. Members are very courteous and do not look down on those with less knowledge. And answers are always quick, informative, and supportive.

Build off of an existing theme to speed up the creation of custom designed themed. Bootstrap is a good one but there are many others that are probably much simpler to build from than the Bootstrap one was. Make sure you host on a Unix/Linux server so you don't have to install PHP or MySQL separately. It's just smoother on those platforms.

Alternatives Considered

Concrete5

Concrete5's UI is a bit more dated compared to WordPress, and the ecosystem for plugins is smaller. But out of the box, Concrete5 does more with its clean code than WordPress does. WordPress's UI and large plugin/community around it is its biggest strength as a product, not the underlying code.

These are the four we traditionally see still. Jahia ranks high when we have a client not needing the brand awareness of Adobe. Not wanting the .Net of Sitecore, and not wanting the PHP of Acquia.

Return on Investment

Concrete5

  • Clients rarely require support with simple tasks such as updating pages allowing our developers to focus on higher value projects.
  • Cost reduction due to increased employee efficiency
  • Increased customer satisfaction as clients are able to have more control over their websites.

Jahia Digital Experience Platform

  • The full Enterprise package with Form Factory and Marketing Factory included provides the best user experience as the sites are more dynamic and adapt themselves to end users profiles. You are likely to get a much better targeting of the content this way, but of course it has a cost
  • Jahia is robust and reliable and is a good base to build up on digital transformation
