I'm in charge of products implying Jahia for several clients. I'm quite active in pre-sales and project management and I like to keep a technical focus and be able to act as an expert or a developer on that CMS. I also keep a focus on my previous GIS experience and web mapping integration.
  • User Experience : Jahia is especially simple to use for all user roles including visitors, content editors, reviewers, editors in chief, administrators and developers
  • Integration : Jahia is a developer friendly CMS developped in Java and based on cool features such as OSGI enabling hot deployement and reducing risks of unwanted interactions between modules and sites
  • Well integrated Form Factory
  • Enterprise Feautres such as marketting automation tools
  • Review workflows are not as intuitive as you'd imagine. This is an area in the UX where the editor has work to do. It works well but it could be more intuitive
  • Pricing should be more progressive and more aggressive
  • Jahia deserves more publicity. The product is excellent but nobody knows it. The editor should focus on marketing.
Jahia is well suited if at leats one of the situations occure :

- Important UX requirements
- Integration projects
- Multi-sites, multi-language
- Different sites development by different teams that should fit in one shared instance
- High availability, clustering
- High load, high performance
- Need for a headless CMS
- A/B testing and market automation
- Stable architecture with limited risks of incompatibilities between modules
- Excellent support from the editor in enterprise distribution

There is a free community distribution that can be used as entry level, but as soon as a project becomes critical I'd strongly recommend the enterprise distribution. While subscription costs of the enterprise distribution are relatively low compared to ones of other enterprise CMS, they could be more progressive and can be problematic for intermediate projects. This is mainly a problem for the first site at a client, as the subscription costs don't directly depend on the number of deployed sites.

  • Possibility to manage templates via the Studio (web based, drag&drop interface).

  • Delay in the availability of the website Jahia Academy (e-learning website for Jahia expertise).
Jahia is well suited for:

  • Projects driven by the marketing department
  • Projects with agility and industrialization needs
  • Projects with strong integration/infrastructure requirements (banking/insurance, public sector, big corporate)

Jahia software helps us display and manage our content the way we want. Personally I'm able to build virtually any type of page I desire based on layout preferences.
  • It's flexible and accommodating from a page layout perspective
  • It works with other content production platforms like Bootstrap
  • It simultaneously supports multiple users
  • User interface not exactly informative at first glance
  • Lack of basic features such as multiple photo upload selection
  • It always reloads any page's updates to the top
  • Removes some pieces of html after "edit" refresh, like Bootstrap's icons
  • Edit's mode window size doesn't reflect actual size of a content column's width
In my opinion, Jahia does good job supporting any static and landing pages, where content lives and is not updated on regular basis. However, blog type content or a multimedia would be harder to manage. I couldn't find Jahia's offered widgets to be working the way I would like them to. It seems like that side of the software is not very much supported.

Jahis is a great platform if you are constantly updating the content of your web site. If you have more of a static site that doesn't change often then Jahia is probably not for you. It would work but it is meant for people or organizations that need to have multiple people updating or changing content.

Jahia was used as a part of our mobile strategy. I designed the user interface for our customer facing products.

I was apart of building the various templates and helping to implement into our strategy. The goal was to make sure that Jahia would allow us to be 100% responsive with our platform.
  • Scalabilty - we would be able to add onto Jahia when needed and there was room to grow.
  • I was using other CMS platforms and felt that Jahia was made by engineers for engineers. It was not easy to build or implement the U/I into Jahia as easily as some other platforms I used. I would say Jahia needs a new overhaul to compete with the other "drag and drop"type CMS' which still allow the same scalability as Jahia.
I think for an over large corporation that has a great team of engineers, Jahia is suited best. For anything medium-to small business, they would never use Jahia and I wouldn't recommend because its not easy to use. Other products I currently suggest are Concrete5 or even the database-less CMS's that let others view a site how it should be without the knowledge of complex database integration or MYSQL technical knowledge.
