Magnolia V5+

Magnolia CMS is a great product to develop enterprise websites, extranets and intranets. At the moment, the community is growing day by day but so far not many extensions are available. Magnolia is an enterprise CMS, the initial learning curve takes time, to learn all its functionalities and how to customize it is necessary to know Java. When one wants to develop just a simple website without complexity which doesn’t need any specific features such as workflow, versioning, environment separation between staging and public, etc. it is preferable to choose another CMS.

If you already use Salesforce, then this is a no-brainer. There is no need to go to another platform for your CMS needs. If you don't have Salesforce at all, this is still a good choice but may not always make the most sense. There are cheaper options out there and also ones that might integrate with your platform better, but as always you will usually get what you pay for.

The web features of Magnolia are better.
Andrea Castelli | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesforce CMS

The Microsoft solutions were used previously, and were probably easier to use since they integrate with windows desktops so well. However, Salesforce is more integrated with mobile and the cloud platform, therefore it is inherently client device agnostic, which is ultimately more powerful. 10-20 years ago I would have recommended the former, but in the modern mobile age the latter is a must-have.
