Sitecore Experience Manager is an enterprise-grade CMS competing with Oracle WebCenter, IBM Web Content Manager and Adobe. It presents a fairly wide and comprehensive swath of inbuilt features. In Sitecore WCM editing takes place from within the page with its inline editor, allowing editors and authors to create display rules and content within the context of the page in an integrated process. It allows the creation of blogs, wikis, polls, integrates with social media, and is mobile-accessible for end users so as to provide a varied and tailored environment that is sensitive to visitor characteristics. Localization and regionalization allow the end user to see content in their home language. Analytics track visitor behavior, which aids in the generating of marketing reports and facilitating rule-based targeting. Experience Profiles give a rich understanding of single or groups of similar individuals, to give customer insights. The Sitecore Experience Database contains customer data and can draw additional data from CRM connected to it, for profiling visitors. Sitecore also has an AppCenter, where features can be augmented and expanded.
Sitecore is a paid platform for businesses of all sizes, and pricing varies accordingly with implementation and scale. Its licensing models is based on the number of Sitecore server installations and simultaneous users. When it is implemented as an Intranet pricing varies according to number of employees with access to it.
Integration of our leads form with SalesForce.com helped to streamline the process.
However it was very expensive to implement and maintain.
Moreover, does the purchase, initial learning curve, development and analytic needs require Sitecore's large foot print?
1) Does my company require a robust content delivery system. How complex are my workflow requirements. How much data does my companies website really have including physical and virtual assets.
2) How important is a enterprise rendering engine. How much confidence do I have in my IT department.
3) Will a complex analytic's system really be implemented and used.
4) How much integration with other system will there be, taking the load off Sitecore.
- How big is your organization (if small, do not use)?
- How open are you to researching your customer data and investing time towards creating web content based on your research (if not too open, do not use)?
- How much customized functionality do you have in your site like search, CRM, Newsletters (if more, do not use)?
Sitecore is probably too much for a company that just needs a simple website with a few pages. If your pages are not changing frequently and you don't need automated integration to other systems or processes, Sitecore may not be the best fit.
