SDL Tridion

SDL Tridion works well for organizations with a large website with a lot of content to continuously create and manage. The use of page templates and component presentations makes creating new pages fairly straightforward. It can be a little cumbersome when it comes to trying to "break from the norm" and build web pages that are outside of the template-driven format; however, there are ways around this to create pages that break away from the normal page-template format of the website. In this regard, SDL Tridion can be pretty flexible, allowing us to create a lot of custom functionality to keep up with constantly changing web trends.

UENI

This company suited me at the time due to running out of time to get a site up. UENI was able to add a good-looking site quickly. No extra hosting charges. Shame they miss out on standard features like many other sites offer. It has given me an online presence, which I was after. This looks good and is easy to edit.

Pros

SDL Tridion

  • Makes it easy to spin up a new site quickly
  • Allows for numerous users to work on the same site without conflicting with each other's changes
  • Allows you to unpublish changes or revert to old versions if you make a mistake
  • Allows you to time publishing actions (for example, you can set it to happen overnight)

Cons

SDL Tridion

  • Doesn't work well in all browsers. Tridion is a Microsoft product so they really push IE; however, now-a-days it SHOULD work in all browsers. Even though they say to use IE, Chrome actually functions the best with Tridion.
  • It uses Dreamweaver Syntax. Dreamweaver syntax is completely out-dated and SDL really needs to come up with a better way of looping through content by using it's own structure or using .NET syntax to loop through items - Dreamweaver syntax is not the way to go
  • Component Templates and Page Templates. Tridion uses Component Templates and Dreamweaver templates to display content and store the content that is to be displayed. These 2 items could easily be converted into 1 group of items, but SDL chose to keep them separate therefore increasing the complexity of Tridion
  • Steep learning curve. Tridion has a very steep learning curve and it will take some time to train people on it. We had to hire 4 Tridion experts (at probably around $1000 / day) to get everyone trained on Tridion and then build the structure for Tridion

  • Some aspects of the website could do with improving, however, we have fed this back to them and have passed it on to their development team, to look at implementing them in the next update they do.

I believe SDL Tridion is the best CMS product out there currently. Every CMS has its problems and strengths but SDL Tridion overall seems like the best solution for large enterprise corporations. The fact that it can be implemented in java or .net makes it attractive to many clients

Usability

The editor user interface is very user friendly and in-site editing makes simple updates fast and easy. The extensibility of Tridion is a big plus and the ability to add our own options into the default Tridion interface helps us integrate with external systems. Finally, the user permissions and security system helps us deploy it within our large organization.

Alternatives Considered

SDL Tridion

It is a nuclear missile compared to the other handguns and knives on the market today. But it also requires nuclear technicians and expertise that a handgun doesn't require. Do you need to decimate your competition and you have the investment capabilities necessary to put a nuclear missile into the sky? Then definitely do it. Especially if you need a very good multi-lingual blueprint provider like Tridion.

UENI

UENI overshadows Wix by far. Considering how helpful, cost effective, and fast UENI is to make the websites as per my requirements, in comparison to Wix where you have to first purchase a subscription then either learn to make it yourself, which wouldn't be as user friendly, or pay someone extra to have it made rather than the one-time payment to UENI.

Return on Investment

SDL Tridion

  • SDL is a very complex system. Creating custom components by external vendors turned out to be expensive.
  • The learning curve is very slow, so training takes a lot of time and cost.
  • The revamped corporate site looks clean, modern, and is mobile-friendly.
