LightCMS

LightCMS is perfect for 90% of websites out there. It has all the basic modules like calendars, photo galleries, news/blog, or forms building built in. Small businesses to mid-sized businesses are perfect for LightCMS.We use other solutions when the requierments for the website include a lot of third party integrations or custom modules. As a hosted CMS it has the same limitations as others with server-side development.

Oracle WebCenter Sites

Oracle WebCenter Sites is very well suited to presenting marketing content in all shapes and forms, including mobile, an in a corporate web site. Oracle WebCenter Sites can also manage small product catalogs easily. Important things to consider when selecting a CMS:
  • How important is the ease with which my business users update content?
  • How often are updates made?
  • How distributed are my business contributors?
  • How important is preview in my organization's workflow and publishing process?

Pros

LightCMS

  • LightCMS provides all the major functionality 90% of sites need. It keeps out of its own way by making these solutions intuitive and simple and not trying to solve every problem for everyone which would over-complicate the tool-set.
  • This is the easiest to use CMS we have ever seen. I tell my client's that if they can make a Facebook post, they can manage their website, and it's true. Their UI is so easy and keeps getting easier to use. Untrained users get it in minutes and are able to manage their sites without our help.
  • LightCMS's code is simple and light-weight. Sites are fast and the CMS doesnt get in the way of performance.
  • You can do almost anything you want (except server-side programming) with LightCMS. So, we can create any design we want and it works great with Light CMS's tokens and editable regions concept (which is also simple to implement.)
  • Constantly upgraded and fixed, the product is 1000x better after 10 years of working with it, but is still simple and not bloated.

Oracle WebCenter Sites

  • Easy-to-use content authoring and design tools for business users.
  • Segmentation based on implicit (behavioral) or explicit (known user or characteristics) criteria or a combination of the two.
  • Flexible rules engine for creation of customer segments and recommendations, enabling delivery of targeted content and campaigns.

Cons

LightCMS

  • While keeping it simple is LightCMS's thing, some of the elements/modules could use deeper options or control for advanced users.
  • Some content, such as calendars, cannot have data exported/imported easily.
  • Support was amazing 10 years ago. We openly talked about how awesome they were... it isn't as good as it once was, but is still way above almost every support of other CMS systems we have used.

Oracle WebCenter Sites

  • Creating new content is not so easy
  • Publishing is not trivial
  • In my opinion documentation is weak
  • I think there are cheaper solutions then WCS

A valuable tool for enabling marketers and business users to easily create and manage contextually relevant social and interactive online experiences across multiple channels on a global scale to drive sales and loyalty. It also allows multi-site management (in fact Sites) using the assets and template developed, without having to re-implement again for each individual site.

The WebCenter Sites Support team is extremely good and very responsive to client needs. They are quick to resolve Level 1 issues and when escalated to Level 2, the team makes every effort to keep the client informed.

Alternatives Considered

LightCMS

We have looked at hundrends of CMS's and LightCMS is a perfect entry-level system for most of our small to mid sized clients. LightCMS's feature set is less complex than almost every other system and the actual interface is miles ahead of most other CMS systems. It's simply thought out better. It lacks sensibility and an API as well as other advanced features many more expensive or more DIY systems have, but the simplicity makes up for it.

Oracle WebCenter Sites

There are lot of WCM products available in the market, some free and some licensed. But for a organisation using more Oracle products and on Java technology, WCS is the best in class, for intranet and internet needs. It has everything which is required for a web application. Also it can be well integrated with other platforms with Oracle Document Cloud/Oracle Content/Oracle Identity Manager and a lot more. Its a well integrated product. It can also be integrated with social media using a community plugin. It also comes with its own search and analytics tools. The templates are pure JSP and can be easily coded by Java developers using the development guide. Its based on Java, so writing custom applications and integrating is easy

Return on Investment

LightCMS

  • While I always think the price could be cheaper, LightCMS is incredibly inexpensive if you consider the costs of hosting, support, and upgrading is all included.
  • As part of their partner program, we are able to control client accounts from our master account, making moving between clients easier and supporting them faster which ultimately makes our labor costs better.

Oracle WebCenter Sites

  • It has alleviated some of the burden on our IT staff.
  • It has allowed our Marketing department to be more hands-on with content changes, and they have more flexibility with the types of changes and how often they make them.
