    Contentful

    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].

    Working with a large amount of web content where there is a need to focus on related content.

    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    • Clean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)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)

    • Speed and efficiency
    • Roles and content control

    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).

    • User Interface was good but heavy, with Java powering the backbone I recall finding this somewhat troublesome at the time.

    I don't work with Squiz any more so it's difficult to say, that said, the site is still running on the same CMS so obviously it's still considered a great platform

    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.

    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

    Squiz Digital Experience Platform

    • Having a single powerful CMS platform that would integrate a number of organisations that had recently merged - Squiz was a big part of bringing our web architecture together gracefully.
    • Increased employee efficiency
