Contentful

Coming from WordPress, Contentful feels like content management as it should be. There's no clutter to get rid of, you can simply start building from scratch, and the end product is perfectly tailored to your or your clients needs.

DNN Platform

Well suited to large enterprise website or web application developments. Less well suited to smaller site which would be better catered for by something like Wordpress.

Pros

Contentful

  • Contentful provides organized, flexible data models with support for a variety of data types and content editors (e.g. WYSIWYGs, form fields, raw text areas).
  • Contentful has great built-in versioning features with history and draft states so it's easy to make updates and revert when needed.
  • Contentful has an intuitive user interface and good support for multiple spaces (which can be helpful for companies that need separate projects for dev/staging/production).

DNN Platform

  • DNN allows for multiple installation and hosting options, so large corporate and small clients can each have a service that fits them.
  • DNN has the ability to have a lot of features customized.
  • The licensing, if using the on demand or Evoq versions is pricey, but is better than many alternatives.

Cons

Contentful

  • Preview of changes prior to publishing
  • The ability to use a spell check plug-in when working on content (it doesn't work well with Grammarly)

DNN Platform

  • Some of the admin screens could be easier to use. The popup editor, for example, always opens at a preset size. It would be better if it could adapt to the view port dimensions. Also, I always have to scroll down to get to the save button in the popup window. It would be nice if the buttons were fixed at the bottom of the popup rather than the bottom of the popup content.

Alternatives Considered

Contentful

Contentful offers a great deal of features for a relatively low price. This is what ended up persuading us to purchase it. We also gathered that this was one of the more well-rated products out there, which was encouraging. It definitely stacks up well against its competitors.
Nathan Richardson | TrustRadius Reviewer

DNN Platform

We chose DNN primarily because we were looking for an open source, scalable .NET based platform. This business decision was made 8 years ago and we have used it for every web development since. To date, no product provides such diversity of functionality and robustness against these requirements.

Return on Investment

Contentful

  • It speed up our content creation process
  • We've freed up dev and design resources for more important projects
  • Given freedom to people to create new pages, while keeping some control so they wouldn't make serious mistakes

DNN Platform

  • The free version is certainly good for ROI, but the paid versions are expensively licensed.
