    Contentful is well suited for folks who want a simple, clean, easy-to-use interface for a JAVASCRIPT website. If you do not want a javascript website you should look [elsewhere].
    Jennifer Garcia | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Progress Sitefinity

    Progress Sitefinity remains a little heavyweight for sites that require basic text content, or a limited number of pages. However, its flexibility (including the range of different content types if supports) make it a good choice for any organization requiring advanced content management capabilities at an affordable price.
    Justin Cawthorne | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Contentful

    • Clean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)
    • High degree of flexibility (I can structure data any way my clients need)
    • Enables headless frontend (i.e. I can build any frontend I want without having to change my CMS)
    Andrew Folts | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Progress Sitefinity

    • 'Low-code structured content' (dynamic content types) is one of Sitefinity's most powerful features that allows you to structure content according to business needs, while at the same time dampening editorial freedom to ensure accessibility, meta enhancement, SEO and API consumption can be achieved.
    • Sitefinity's content provider model allows us to flexibly (by means of admin interface) easily aggregate or separate content sharing within a multi-site instance.
    • This proofs particularly powerful in emerging situations where there suddenly is a demand for content sharing across countries or regions.
    • Adaptability at its core.
    • While there's never a perfect fit for everything, it allows for easy code customization and extension being a .NET application at heart. Giving it a corporate edge over other custom solutions, whether it is on the development side or deployment side (on premise, IaaS or Azure DevOps Paas). And it has enabled us to put the system to use in its core feature - which is to manage content, where on other occasions we were able to take full advantage of its features such as A/B testing and personalization.

    Cons

    Contentful

    • The new Contentful "branches" feature looked promising (it appears to mirror a git-like repository) but it requires the CLI, which isn't necessarily practical for teams that aren't current CLI users. It would be nice if the management of this feature were available via the UI (without that it causes more confusion than anything).
    • The Contentful data modeling method makes for a bit of an awkward SDK developer experience in some strongly typed languages like Java. Most things that you might need can be accomplished, but it feels like the experience could be smoother.
    • It would be nice if there were a way to migrate data between spaces (e.g. from your staging space to production).
    Eric Mason | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Progress Sitefinity

    • Diagram or illustrate more use cases for server setups, and managing of upgrades.
    • I'd like to see the ability to synchronize from one server to multiple others at once.
    • Implementation assistance as part of the purchase rather than farming out to 3rd party, although they did answer every question we asked in order to determine our best architecture setup.

    Pricing makes this a no brainer. Not the best CMS, but with work arounds and some fumbling around we are able to make it do what we want it to do

    Very big fan of this CMS, as it allows scalability, performance, and everything else. The support is great whenever we need it. As a marketer, the digital/marketing side of things is very easy to use and we've seen strong results from an SEO and marketing perspective. I can't speak to the developer/creative side too much, but in talking with these teams, they do recommend the tool as well.

    Support can be pretty good, even though, depending on the level of licensing, it can take longer to hear back from their team. They do have a phone option, which works well. Overall, they are knowledgeable, and helpful when needed. At times, support is able to access the system directly and troubleshoot critical items when needed.

    N/A - I was not part of the implementation team. We have had this internally for over 5 years. Based on my experience, ensure that you have documentation on the initial implementation and subsequent upgrades. I would also recommend to have all the documentation on how and why the system was implemented the way it was

    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

    Progress Sitefinity

    It is hands down just easier for our customers to use. The interface and the page builder experience is much better than what we have used in the past and has many enterprise features even in the lower price-point

    Return on Investment

    Contentful

    • Positive: faster changes and new associates can easily navigate without prior training/knowledge of CMS to make content updates
    • Negative: Our website manager/provider can keep certain abilities (like changing specific images) so they can charge a fee for making the change
    Nathaly Sierra | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Progress Sitefinity

    • Sitefinity has reduced the amount of time it takes to edit and publish content, which has enabled us to get information out more quickly.
    • Sitefinity allowed us to establish a consistent and modern brand identity and apply it across multiple websites.
