CoreMedia

I think this CMS is best suited as an enterprise level system. For small, or simple sites, there are better options, but for large high-traffic sites, this is a great CMS.

MODX

The biggest scenario in which MODX is well suited is for a company who wants to have a top-notch site that is hosted on a CMS that allows a user-friendly experience for both the back-end and front-end users. It would not be suited for an organization does not have anyone in-house that can code who wants to have a lot of control over future designs.

Pros

CoreMedia

  • Allows many staff members to contribute content to various portions of our website, and allows our Electronic-Communications staff to delegate tasks to these various staff (diffusing the work-load).
  • CoreMedia allows for easy creation of different types of content (like teasers, articles, download objects, links, etc). Permission levels can be set, so only certain staff can upload content such as photos, videos, or audio files.
  • The CoreMedia workflow process is easy to understand and follow. Once a staff member has submitted content for publishing to the web, they can then see who it's been assigned to for review, and at what time. You're able to leave detailed notes and stay abreast of where the workflow is at any given time.

Cons

CoreMedia

  • Early learning within the company was slow.
  • We elected a customized version of CoreMedia - which in the end may not have been the best decision.
Nicola Farman | TrustRadius Reviewer

MODX

  • Content Blocks - I mentioned this as a strength, but it also has its quirks. There are times that things do not function properly within the content blocks we have set up.
  • More Customization - The ability for the average user to customize more without having to know a ton of code.

CoreMedia continues to refine and deliver new features. They also explore new technologies and trends, like social media integration. The platform is solid and growing. We are also slightly locked into using CoreMedia. Migrating such a large amount of content to another system would likely not be feasible or prudent.

Set aside more time than you think you need to migrate content. That is the hard part. Implementing the technology is easy.

Alternatives Considered

CoreMedia

While CoreMedia has a better workflow, django CMS has a much easier user interface, wysiwyg editor, and is superior on every other level. Django CMS is easier to teach and support, easier to manage and develop, and provides much more flexibility in the development and design areas.
Sara Halperin | TrustRadius Reviewer

MODX

As said before, MODX is a coder's dream because of the flexibility it provides to own your code and has true creative freedom. Because of that, there is a bigger learning curve when it comes to a non-developer trying to iterate on the CMS with content additions and changes. To that end, WordPress, HubSpot, and Unbounce all incorporate a far more user-friendly approach to website building.

Return on Investment

CoreMedia

  • Increased employee proficiency compared to nothing at all. I really don't have anything else to compare it to though.
  • Reports from Core do not help/.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

MODX

  • The positive impact that MODX has had on our organization is that it has allowed us to generate more organic traffic to our site.
  • We are also able to push more paid advertisements to our site on our lead generation landing pages.
