Blueprinting model is a big plus. The structure is defined, templates, components, schemas are set up at a global level and shared across inherited items. This means creating once, re-using it in many places, (localize them as and when necessary) is a big plus and well suited. if the company does not have localization requirements and also one or two sites, then the product may be a bit too much as it is more of an enterprise edition.

Love the product and I really like how we use it for public sites. The only negative aspect is that it is just hard to find Tridion devs that understand the tool, grasp .net, react, and understand the blueprint, etc.

This totally depends. If the individual asking has a large business that needs a comprehensive solution that includes a multi-national platform, multi-lingual needs, and they need something that they are willing to invest in heavily, then SDL Tridion Sites is fantastic. But for most mid-level organizations, it is way way too complicated and heavy of a lift to setup and support. We succeeded with it, but it was through serious effort and investment.

SDL Tridion is good for large-scale sites that use a lot of pages based on templates. Specifically, it is great for extensive online catalogs. It also good for creating microsites. For the simpler scenarios that require all pages to have different layouts and stylesheets associated with them, using Tridion may be too much of a hassle.

If you're already familiar with working in a CMS then it won't be too difficult to pick up -- but still recommend a training session or two. For my company any template tweaks are handled by the IT department so I can't speak to how easy or difficult it is to modify templates.

I think it is really well suited for users who have multiple sites that need to inherit from a parent site, and want easy mass publishing options with the opportunity to also localize/personalize content to a lower level site.

Well suited for large international organizations where they can use integrated and automated translations with SDL's language translation tools (World Server, Translation Management Server). With the newer SDL Mobile and SmartTarget modules it is possible to offer more customized and dynamic experiences. However, the strength is definitely in the product architecture and well thought and documented APIs. It handles high server load easily due to this architecture. Managing large multi-lingual websites also is good and fast to rollout additional language websites by reusing existing translations. However, if you have a small website with 1 Content Editor then there are lighter systems out there for those needs.

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.

SDL Tridion is very useful for large corporation which have a number of different websites under their umbrella. They may have many small websites which may need some content from the main site. With the blueprinting model, this is easily achieved. It is also good for translations and multilingual websites since the same blueprinting principle applies.

Tridion is a true enterprise CMS, if your organization is well suited for the cost and the ability to capitalize on managed content and make use of the various tools available then its a great investment. Key questions would be size of organization, budget, licenses, etc.

Tridion will do its job for simple, less interactive websites. However, if you're looking into creating sites that are more interactive, more personalized and transactional based interaction with visitors, using it can be very challenging. Lots of coding involved, on top of the templating work.

I think the tool is well suited for small and large web site management. Be sure to ask about customer support for the long-term contracts. It will take some time to get the kinks worked out and have it serving specific needs but once it is up and running it is very reliable.

I believe this product is well suited for companies and organizations that want to have its internal employees develop webpages on the fly without concerning themselves with the back end system. This product is also easy to train others in, and does not require a lot of knowledge in Java, .NET or HTML. It certainly helps to know these languages as if an issue arises it allows you to debug more closely.

If your company is managing lots of websites, and would like custom Content Delivery Applications for them, then SDL Tridion is the right tool. Perfect for companies like Unilever, Kimberly Clark, Kraft, where the brand experience is unique however, costs need to be managed. Do not use Tridion if all you have is one or two website manage.
