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.

Salesforce CMS

Salesforce is well suited for any company that wants to effectively manage relationships with their customers while getting useful data at the same time. We used other CMS's in the past, and they just couldn't give us what we needed. We are a relatively small company, but it seems to me that having these tools in place is even more vital for a growing company.

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.

  • Easy to use, just like Salesforce's other products. Many users can sit down and figure it out in no time, and with a little training become power users.
  • Fast and secure - Salesforce is a leader in the cloud world so you get consistently fast results and security that is top notch in the industry.
  • Accessible from anywhere - if you use cloud CMS already this is a no-brainer, but for those that do in-house CMS still, this is a major difference. Mobile access from anywhere on the planet without a VPN is something you just can't do without the cloud.

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

Salesforce CMS

  • Make it easier to build reports and dashboards.
  • Speed - seems like SFDC can run a bit slow at times.
  • The mobile app could use some work.

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.

Once set up, it is decently easy for users to navigate. It can be difficult at times to build reports and dashboards if you aren't well versed in Salesforce. It seems like you have to read a manual to do a lot of stuff within Salesforce - this is largely due to how complex the tool is.

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.

Salesforce CMS

While Salesforce has more function, ServiceNow is a lot easier to use from the get go. Salesforce has a lot more capability, especially when it comes to metric management, ticket management, and contact management. Given the choice between the two, I'd really have to know what my client needed most. If they just needed case logging, SNOW is perfect. But, if they really want granular management, Salesforce wins all day

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

Salesforce CMS

  • Keeps staff retained through the content visuals
  • Streamlines employment on-boarding which saves on cost
  • Integration with other product and is a package savings long-term for the organization.
