User Testimonials

Likelihood to Recommend
Jadu
Jadu CMS is not currently geared toward the academic side, but more of the business/government types of organizations. Things can be tweaked to suit your needs, but sometimes there are limitations. The programmers are very helpful in assisting with that.
If you have some in house programmers, and you can get developer training, they will be able to program their own custom widgets to use on your website. We did not have programmers but managed to create a few simple widgets.
There's also a marketplace to look for other widgets that you could use on your site.

Optimizely
It is well suited for heavy-duty A/B testing where management would like to see and quantitatively determine the effect of a change. It is not so efficient to try for a single page simple form, except when the form is part of a larger workflow. The security model is not very well understood, including RBAC and protection against injection attacks.

Pros
Jadu
  • Reliability. The LAMP-powered server/software rarely has any problems and can handle hundreds of concurrent users without issue. It was developed with scalability in mind.
  • Ease of Use. Our users find the backend GUI very easy to use. The layout is intuitive and follows the same format throughout the entire control panel.
  • Powerful. Even if it doesn't do something you would like it to out of the box, the code is well formatted and easy to customize.

Optimizely
  • Provides quicker release cycle for the way the product cards should be displayed.
  • Provides feedback for new product introduction and how it'll be perceived.
  • Allows rapid blackout from user experience changes that alters traffic flow.

Cons
Jadu
  • The custom HTML editor can be frustrating
  • Does not provide advanced controls and looks as well as some competitors
  • Menus to add media content are litigious and require many clicks

Optimizely
  • Can use better interface for managing test, including scheduling and notification.
  • Feels too heavy for simple projects, though this isn't a factor once past the PoC stage.
  • Notification on various aspects can be made more powerful and granular if such a need arise.

I decided not to give it a 10 because I don't know what else is out there in terms of CMS products, and there's a bias when you've only been exposed to one product. At my current job, I used Jadu sparingly but it's easy to get reacquainted with the software and the look and feel of the CMS

Usability
Jadu
For the common user, Jadu is very easy to use and to understand. For the more complex user/administrator, there's a lot of power to be harnessed in HTML editing, creating widgets, editing styles, creating workflows, and other advanced features Jadu can work up for the customer.

Alternatives Considered
Jadu
Jadu is miles behind these and many other CMSs. The others are much more up to date with their code and ease of use. The ability to customize other CMSs is much easier and the code structure actually makes sense. Jadu was selected because it had a portal out of the box.

Optimizely
There is a big difference between the two: Google Optimize uses Bayesian analysis while Optimizely uses Frequenting. There is a risk of counting multiple visits. Google Optimize data isn't available instantly (if I remember correctly). Optimizely's analyses dashboard is a lot richer and offers a better experience, though it may get intimidating.

Optimizely
  • Almost immediate payoff in terms of the benefit.
  • Easy to justify the TTM benefits to upper management.
  • Still somewhat hard to justify ROI, though this is not my expertise.
