Best suited for large organizations where everyone knows how to deal with Java in an increasingly Java unfriendly world. Said organization should be willing to pay a huge price for a piece of dinosaur technology

Percussion Software
  • One word: JAVA! We don't live in the 1990's anymore! An AJAX/DHTML environment seems a long time coming.
  • Horrible end-user experience, learning curve. Our end users' inability to easily use the archaic, Java-based interface, means they send the web developer their content requests. This creates a huge bottleneck and completely defeats the purpose of a CMS.
  • Image mangement and integration with content is aweful and time consuming. An image processing tool called ImedImage was developed for Percussion at one point, and left completely stagnant with very little support.
  • Implementation is extremely complicated, given the complexity of the system. Sure, scalability is a good thing, but there is very little out-of-the box function. Don't expect to implement a site as quickly as with other CMS platforms.

Maglr helped us by creating the content hub. 1. Getting dedicated content
idealization, creation, and distribution engine that not only executes content
strategies but also creates them and amplifies your brand voice. Powered by a
team of content marketing experts, this is a one-stop for all your content
needs. 2. Greater reach and stronger digital footprint with improved
brand awareness.

  • We are locked into Percussion CMS simply due to the expense and complexity of migrating to another solution (and the lack of time and budget to do so). I long for the day when I am no longer required to support Percussion CMS, to say the least.
