Likelihood to Recommend

Progress Sitefinity

Sitefinity is a great fit for medium to enterprise level websites that require a robust WCM solution that can integrate with other systems, be customized to meet business requirements and can scale as needed. Implementation will require a partner or individual that is well-versed in Sitefinity. If implemented correctly, managing content for non-technical and business users is very simple and straightforward.

Pros

Progress Sitefinity

  • It's very user-friendly. If our organization wanted to move to a workflow system, I'm confident every person here could be comfortable with Sitefinity with little training.
  • Updates are quick and easy. I like the drag and drop modules.
  • Our previous system didn't give us CSS access; it's nice to be able to edit literally any part of the site on our own without going through our web vendor.
  • I really like being able to upload multiple images or files at once.

Cons

Progress Sitefinity

  • The biggest thing I dislike about Sitefinity is the price. It's clearly not meant for smaller businesses which has priced many of my clients out of the market.
  • Another negative for me is that the product's base is Web Forms. However, they have made some headway into the MVC space, it still not a purely MVC product.
  • In the last few editions of Sitefinity have been mostly focused on marketing initiative that many organizations do not need. So the price keeps going up but the features are necessarily useful to justify the costs.

It is very easy to administer for non-technical folks. The editor and backend interface is among the best I've seen.

Alternatives Considered

Progress Sitefinity

Content Managers have full, easy, control the content on the site and when content gets released.
  • IT should only be required to help with new features but not with content updates.
  • Usually contain support contracts and decent sized development communities.
  • Fully customizable with some work.
  • When implemented correctly can do great things for all involved.
  • When implemented incorrectly (which is often) make it a pain for everyone involved
  • Very expensive which mean they are only feasible to mid-size and larger business.
  • When implemented incorrectly, IT is often in charge of making content updates for content managers because they are frustrated with the system.
  • Business should be dedicated to the CMS and spend time on training and making sure the CMS is worked on right
  • Developers tend to not like working on most out of box solutions.
