OpenText TeamSite

Well suited for a business that wants to update content themselves and have the ability to manage content in one area and use on multiple websites. Companies who want to personalize their content and secure their content. TeamSite is easy to use and new associates can pick up making content changes quickly.

Umbraco CMS

Umbraco CMS is the perfect tool for a company that is looking to keep their website updated. The simple to use tools and templates means updating and creating new pages is easy. The WYSIWYG editor is a nice feature, however, for accessibility, there should be some more guidance on what is suitable to be used on the CMS.

Pros

OpenText TeamSite

  • If you are nostalgic for 2004 style, closed source, poorly documented, ultra-proprietary, "enterprise"-ey type apps...this will be for you.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Umbraco CMS

  • Plugins - as an open source CMS, Umbraco is very customizable and flexible to the needs of the organization
  • Publishing - Umbraco has powerful tools for publishing
  • Media hosting

Cons

OpenText TeamSite

  • Template and log access requires elevated privileges and could be exposed to front end teams more easily
  • Moving content and code between environments requires manual effort

Umbraco CMS

  • Umbraco can initially be challenging for new users with limited or no development experience. After initial installation, there is a lot more work required to 'see' a site.
  • Umbraco isn't stable. For example, even on a fresh new site sometimes you'll get errors when trying to save something in the admin panel. It's not common, but it happens often enough to be annoying.
  • No out of the box contact forms. Umbraco sells their forms plugin that we've used in the past, but the plugin is disappointing. It isn't well maintained and it's very buggy. Making a new contact form with the paid plugin can take a lot of time to get everything right (fields, validation, confirmation emails, etc). This is especially frustrating for new users.
  • Documentation / resource links frequently 404. Umbraco seems to change their site URLs often enough that, when you encounter an issue, you're likely to find a number of bad links in Google's search results. This makes it difficult to research solutions to a problem.
  • Posts often go unanswered or without resolution in their community support forums. Hopefully this will improve as the community grows.
  • The update process is clumsy at best. Many people are familiar with the simple WordPress upgrade button for the core and plugins. This doesn't exist at all for Umbraco. Instead, you'll need to select specific files to overwrite and potentially update any old code references.
  • Migration between development environments is clumsy. Umbraco offers a premium plugin to address this because, as they state on the premium plugin page, deployments are "complicated, headache-inducing"

Working in the admin panel (adding / reviewing / editing content) is very slow.The public facing site speed is dependent on what the pages are doing and how well the code was written (whether it is optimized for speed).

Online training is often based on older versions of the platform. So, you'll have to fill in the gaps on your own.

Spend the time to wireframe the content structure prior to diving in. This helps speed the process of implementation and it serves as documentation for end users.

Alternatives Considered

OpenText TeamSite

OpenText went through an RFP process against IBM Content Management back in 2012. OpenText not only met our business and technical requirements, but we asked both vendors to show a use case and OpenText provided an extensive solution that IBM could not. Also the content publishing capabilities was light years ahead. A couple of years ago, a new business manager had a bias toward Drupal. In looking at both systems side by side, Drupal had many flaws that would cause the content editor to spend a lot longer to accomplish their tasks. There were some business and technical requirements either Drupal could not meet or you needed add-on products to satisfy what is already in OpenText TeamSte.

Umbraco CMS

There is not really an alternative when it comes to CMS based on ASP.Net (MVC4 with Razor). There are a few frameworks, like Booststrap; however framework is not content management system. I will compare it to Drupal, because the second one is well known. Against Drupal, Umbraco is very clean and fast framework/CMS. It does not have as much of big community, support or range of plugins as Drupal.
