Ektron (Discontinued)

If a key business requirement is to have an Enterprise Level CMS platform that allows seamless synchronization between authoring and production hosting environments, Ektron is by far the leader in the industry. Additionally, if you are for a platform that will scale well to large amounts of content, Ektron is also a good fit.

Cons

Ektron (Discontinued)

  • Ektron sometimes tries to clean up javascript and HTML that we enter with code for specific enhancements that we need to do. Ektron tries to clean some of this code up when it saves the content, thereby removing our intended implementation.

For a robust CMS, Ektron is pretty user friendly. Once you are familiar with the Administrative backend, you can view the content, dms (pdf, word, xls, images) objects, users groups, reports and configuration setting. Essentially, you can personalize and control the content you want to present and the audience you want to present it to. Ektron also works with a number of AMS' - so you can customize any products and events you would like to display.

As both a manager of CMS content as well as a designer, I find the CMS to be intuitive and easy to understand. (They also have great documentation and customer support if you need it.)

Between the platform's functionality and Ektron's technical support, I use the CMS with confidence on a daily basis.

Unplanned outages or errors are fairly rare in our instance. And when there are issues, they're usually fixed fairly quickly

Ektron is one of the best solution for .Net platform. Over the years have improved the performance issues that the previous versions had. My only complain is right now you can't do Page builder pages if you choose to have a MVC architecture

Alternatives Considered

The ability to create .Net widgets is powerful feature that allows easy customization. Other CMS's offer a lot more plugins from 3rd party vendors, but if you need to do a lot of customizations yourself and you are a .Net shop, then I would recommend Ektron.
