In my experience, Jahia Digital Experience Platform as a CMS platform is excellent when you have a large amount of content that needs to be customized. It is also good for when you have templated content that has minor variations. I would say it is less appropriate when the content has numerous mathematical computations, or a large amount of business logic that comes into play with data processing.

If you are a professional agency that requires access to a ton of Saas applications like email, accounting, CRM, websites, etc, then this browser (Sidekick) application is the ticket for you. If you like a ton of features for free, this is not for you. I feel It is breaking my bank account. :(

Cons
Jahia Solutions
  • It lacks the ability to manage multiple versions of a page or content in general.
  • The back office interface sometimes encounters bugs or display problems.
  • It's difficult to keep pre-production sites up to date in terms of content compared to production, because the time required to import/export sites is very long once the site is rich in content.

  • Group applications on the left side of the part (like categories on the bar)
  • Make it hard to close a tab when on a session (warn with a "did you mean to do that?")
  • Be able to save the session while live.
  • Protect all tabs within a saved session without making them little tabs.

I would not use Jahia as it proved too complex for our needs and didn't help our over goal of customer satisfaction. Along with the man hours to build and execute, it wasn't worth the hassle

Reliability and Availability
Jahia Solutions
[I give it this rating because it] was up most of the time. There are so many scheduled reboots that I don't think it would be a good choice for a 95% SLA.

As I was saying, the support makes sure to be available for any question, or any technical point that we may need to discuss about. Moreover, whenever we have an issue with the platform they get alerted and also send us an email so that we are aware. We had multiple complex topics to work on in the past, but they always have been answering our question

Jahia provides a similar user experience to other CMS I have used in the past - it features a simple interface that makes navigating and learning how to use the platform easy and the ability to copy and paste content saves time and effort when building new pages. The ease in which you can manage the site in different languages is also a big plus!

When comparing these two, Sidekick was way easier to use and configure. I got confused immediately when trying to set up workspaces in VIVALDI. Sidekick reminded me of ClickUp and was set up within the hour.
