Sitecore is currently used as the backbone behind a website our practice offers to our clients as part of a suite of financial planning resources. Our current use of Sitecore has engendered interest in other areas in our Firm. The platform offers team members the ability to easily test, add, and manage content, allowing what we share with end users of our product to review current, relevant, and meaningful information and resources.

Our team uses Sitecore for all our website content management needs. I work on the editorial team and primarily use Sitecore to publish daily articles and blog posts. Our marketing and product management teams use Sitecore to build lead generation forms, product promotions, event pages, and more. Almost every department in our organization uses Sitecore every day. It's the way we build and store our web content.

Sitecore is used for all elements of content management, like updating advertising banners, descriptions, terms of service, etc, for our airline booking path. However, where is comes into it's own is giving the ability to move around components of the page to ensure certain changes can be made to the site without the need for software development or code releases. Other benefits that we make use of are the A/B testing of the changes mentioned above but most significant is the ability to personalise the user journey through the booking path (and visual elements) based on what we already know about the customer - for example location, search preferences and such like.

Sitecore is being used in my organization across different brands. Most of the brands are using Sitecore just for CMS and some of the brands use end to end Sitecore capabilities. A few of the use cases are:
  • Content authoring capabilities, which allow authors to update the site content on an as needed basis and publish it anytime.
  • Allows them to host multiple sites on a single Sitecore instance, which avoids extra maintenance and license cost.
  • Sitecore analytics which helps track the visitor engagement with the site and provides out of the box dashboards and reports.
  • Webform marketers module allows them to create offline registration pages and integrate them with external integrations through action commands.

We primarily use Sitecore for marketing our products. Each group is able to update their own content pages, while the web marketing team for the whole company is able to specify required items and set layouts. This gives our regional directors the ability to own their content while the national marketing team is able to apply a common interface.

I have implemented websites with Sitecore both at my current job and previous ones. At both places we acted as a digital agency building out Sitecore sites for our clients. It was selected for a variety of reasons across the different clients, including: robustness, easy of use, how easy it is to build layers on top of the out of the box code, .Net requirement.

As a Sitecore partner since 2005, we help our customers solve digital marketing challenges by leveraging Sitecore experience platform. We also use the platform ourselves. Sitecore is typically the "hub" of the marketing technology ecosystem in that it provides 1) web content management, 2) multi-channel experience management, 3) user experience optimization/personalization/automation, and 4) rich data to fuel these capabilities and empower marketers. In brief, Sitecore provides a single platform that reaches across many needs without the need to piecemeal many applications together.

In my experience, a marketing department is the main stake holder in choosing a CMS such as Sitecore and relies on Executive and IT leaders approval. The user base is mainly in marketing, development obviously coming from of IT with executive analysis happening in upper management. There are always one-off company's that implement all aspects of the Sitecore CMS such as daily production usage, development and Analysis in IT or marketing .

Marketing benefits are found in daily implementation of public content for absorption or horizontal integration with partners. This can be accomplished by a stable but performance driven IT implementation of a marketing vision. Greatly reducing daily tasks to provide an end company solutions. But this can be said for any correctly implemented CMS product.

We are using Sitecore to manage our organization's public facing website, www.second.org. Sitecore provided us the opportunity to integrate our website with our backend membership database. As a result, we now have a seamless user experience for event registration, community
groups, self-service portal for updating one's family information and more. The site also won an addy award from the Houston chapter of the American Advertising Federation.

My organization sets up Sitecore for the client and configures the Sites according to business needs. The users use Sitecore as content entry point for their site. My organization helps with the initial orientation and we teach our clients how to use sitecore and also support them if they run into application issues. My whole organization deals with sitecore - developers implement/support it, marketers market the product. It addresses problems like how to make updating webpages easier and quicker for clients, provide client with data to customize web content for more customer acquisition, automate SEO requirements like sitemap generation, etc.

We have been a long time partner of Sitecore doing implementations for customers across the globe. The Sitecore platform has several major components. 1) CMS - The primary content management system, Sitecore has a robust publishing capability, multilingual capabilities, a great separation of presentation and content for easy control of design. 2) DMS/CEP - The Digital Marketing Suite and Customer Engagement Platform provide ground breaking capabilities to digital marketers. Focused on the ability to personalize the experience for each visitor this platform integrates into your existing CRM platform to allow for implicit (session based personalization) and explicit (data from your CRM personalization). In addition these components of Sitecore include analytics, AB testing, and content scoring. 3) ECM - The email campaign manager let's Sitecore close the loop between visitors across devices. The platform is at its core a strong marketing automation and email delivery solution. The best part about the way Sitecore handles everything is as a single solution. Not making you purchase multiple modules, saas solutions, etc...

At Promega, we use Sitecore as the content management system (CMS) for our public website (http://www.promega.com). The content management environment is used by a fairly diverse set of content editors who work together to create, manage, curate, and maintain our website content.

My team (Web Team) supports the content editors by creating new page types and templates, as well as extending the default Sitecore behavior to more appropriately match the needs of the organization.
