- 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.
- Important UX requirements
- Integration projects
- Balance between ease of contribution and a powerful integration platform.
- Possibility to manage templates via the Studio (web based, drag&drop interface).
- Agility and industrialization of deployments (from 7.0 version); ex: modularity and hot deployment with OSGi modules.
- New marketing factory (and future eCommerce platform) to provide a full range product for Digital needs.
- A too small community, not so many interactions thought the community (GitHub for example) with editor.
- Changes in pricing; necessity for progressivity.
- Delay in the availability of the website Jahia Academy (e-learning website for Jahia expertise).
- Projects driven by the marketing department
- Projects with agility and industrialization needs
- Projects with strong integration/infrastructure requirements (banking/insurance, public sector, big corporate)
- 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
- Custom made modules - The ability to custom build and customize your components is a great way to make sure you aren't like anyone else on the web.
- Stable - Jahia is a very stable platform and since it runs on Java it has a great base for success.
- Some additional default modules would be nice. Things like social media integration would be a huge help and cut down on development time.
- 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.
