MODX

The biggest scenario in which MODX is well suited is for a company who wants to have a top-notch site that is hosted on a CMS that allows a user-friendly experience for both the back-end and front-end users. It would not be suited for an organization does not have anyone in-house that can code who wants to have a lot of control over future designs.

Salesforce 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.

Cons

MODX

  • Content Blocks - I mentioned this as a strength, but it also has its quirks. There are times that things do not function properly within the content blocks we have set up.
  • More Customization - The ability for the average user to customize more without having to know a ton of code.

Salesforce CMS

  • Layout looks old
  • Repetitive fields
  • Search function in documentation

Alternatives Considered

MODX

As said before, MODX is a coder's dream because of the flexibility it provides to own your code and has true creative freedom. Because of that, there is a bigger learning curve when it comes to a non-developer trying to iterate on the CMS with content additions and changes. To that end, WordPress, HubSpot, and Unbounce all incorporate a far more user-friendly approach to website building.

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.
