    Craft is really well suited for any size design team - I have used it within a team of 3, and within a team of 30.It helps with collaboration within the team, and between external teams through 'sync' with Invision.It increases efficiency of using Sketch with things like 'data', 'duplicate', and 'stock'. These tools not only make designing faster, but also more realistic, allowing us to 'test' our designs sooner.

    Joomla

    It seems with the release of Joomla! 4 that the weak areas have all been covered. Its always been good for the mid-level small to large business, the blogging was WP, and the large-scale enterprise was probably bespoke. But the new interface is so simple it seems pointless using WP when Joomla! is as easy and can then grow as big as you like.The Workflows feature which allows you to set up work pipelines easily is going to be a boom to any larger enterprise sites.Couples with the new API which I got to see at one of their user groups, is amazing. They were creating articles on one site then another site was taking the feed directly for just certain categories. Really blows your mind what you could do with that and the new workflows.

    Pros

    Craft

    • Craft is built to digital products developers, so its workflow is great.
    • It has a very nice interface and is a beautiful tool.
    Raphael Sanguinete | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Joomla

    • We use Joomla to build our websites and web applications because of its incredible intuitiveness and tools to make everything more manageable.
    • Its working environment is quite comfortable for my development team, and its web design resources significantly speed up our work when carrying out web development projects.
    • It allows you to use blocks to create and visually manage websites and divide them into different categories without programming knowledge.
    Sergey Gvozdetskiy | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Craft

    • Text formatting is sometimes difficult and can break your flow of writing.
    • The button for creating another level is exceptionally hard to see and poorly placed.
    • Copying rich text out of the app pastes it with an odd styling.
    Ben Lachman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Joomla

    • Because Joomla's user community is smaller than WP, it lacks as many choices from 3rd party developers, meaning it can be a little more difficult to find the right extension for what you need to accomplish
    • Along the same vein, most of the best 3rd-party software for Joomla! is paid
    • Simple features such as Add to Menu and Cache cleaners should be adopted as part of the Joomla! core, though they are available as extensions
    • Joomla! could use a simpler and easier URL rewriting process

    I gave it a rating of 10 because I just love how Joomla! works, how it is set up and how it handles many users. Also it is very fast, and there is no overload on the MySQL database or servers ever.

    Joomla! 3.x is easily installed either manually or via a script provided by your host. It contains most of the tools needed to begin creating websites right from the start. Those features that it doesn't have are easily installed via links and buttons from the thousands of extensions available in the community

    Today's Modern Joomla performs very well and is robust and durable. The pages load faster than they ever did in the past and Modern Joomla's integration into other software or systems has become seamless. Modern Joomla sites will last long and will stay running forever.

    Between the core Joomla developers who are excellent at answering questions and providing support, you have a whole community of developers who work with Joomla and are happy to help fellow developers out answering questions and supporting the Joomla project. Out of the many communities I am involved in for open-source software, Joomla's community is by far the best.

    Joomla has gone through tremendous growing pains. It is now better than ever. But before, when it was going from 1.5-2.5, the templates and plugins would break over and over again. If you don't understand what Joomla was trying to do back then, you might have a bad attitude toward it. Today, those pains are over and things don't break like they used to during that time period.

    Alternatives Considered

    Craft

    Craft was originally developed in response to ExpressionEngine's shortcomings. While ExpressionEngine has caught up in some regards, it still looks and feels a bit unpolished by comparison. Additionally, ExpressionEngine's vendor has never gotten UI right - not on their website, nor in their CMS. Craft remains easier to use, more polished and provides a wider feature set in its base install (without needing plugins).As for WordPress - while I recognize its massive popularity, I find its reliance on themes, third-party plugins, along with security shortcomings, make it a poor fit for the larger custom projects we build. On the other hand, if you want to throw up a passable website in a day, you can't beat WordPress.
    Ben Seigel | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Joomla

    We tested other platforms like WordPress, Magento and some local CMS. 
    But Joomla offered us better resources for generating content.
    Joomla is a CMS suitable for many types of projects, especially if you have several people editing content at the same time.
    It allows you to maintain visual standardization and offers many options for working with images.
    With its ability to control access to different articles, categories or even different components, it is a great tool, even if they are managed by different people.

    Return on Investment

    Craft

    • More accurate mockups for clients that take less time than without using Craft.
    • Increased collaboration within and between teams by providing more immediate insight into active design work.
    • More enjoyable experiences while designing, because the tool set opens up new work flows that do not existing natively in any design software.
    Evan Jaffe | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Joomla

    • Joomla has reduced our costs of rolling out a new website because it uses less developer time and can be rolled out by individual users as needed.
    • Joomla has a lot of extensions and add-ons that make it easy to create and implement advanced solutions quickly.
