I need to connect some systems inside and build an Extranet for my 2 customers (furniture and fashion industry). WordPress was not an option because of lack some functionalities, Joomla was good but too slow and not so scalable as Typo3. In fact, Typo3 is a platform - you may deploy what you need (including a mobile app I think).
  • open source - do what you want, and even if you dont know how to do it - someone will do it for you
  • more secure than others (Joomla, WP, Drupal) - thanks to dedicated Typo3 Security Team
  • modularity and diversity - a lot of plugins/extensions
  • workflow and user roles - feel free to build a workflow templates ie. for documents routing
  • assets management - no matter is it a video, audio or text file, you can REALLY manage it.
  • typoscript language - sometimes JS is not enough
  • compared do WordPress - far less community support
  • when you run a simple blog - it is simple as piece of cake. But if it is a large news site, with many user roles, extensions and permissions - it may be hard to find an admin that will organize and keep that stuff working.
  • server resources: so you want performance and speed with all that modules enabled? make sure that you have dedicated server in most cases. WP works much better here.
TYPO3 is great if you need to connect some systems in company to work together: like ecommerce + CRM + ERP + MRP and build an Extranet for partners/dealers where they can order your products, see particular BOM (bill of material), paid/unpaid invoices and use email marketing on top of it. You can do it but keep in mind that you will need a dedicated hosting, well organized admin(s) and some handwritten code.
For simple blog TYPO3 is also a good choose, but WP would be better I think.
  • open source
  • security
  • modularity and flexible (extensions)
  • roles and permissions
  • revoke system (undoing changes module)
  • + 1 platform that handles connections to 11 external systems (CMS, CMR, ERP, MRP, accounting, controlling, email marketing etc.)
  • + still lower TCO than commercial systems (Oracle, Microsoft)
  • + LTS - long term support - can provide you an updates or bugfixes
  • - resource consuming (forget about shared hosting in large projects)
  • more complex and elastic revoke system (undoing changes for multi-administrator systems) PHP/JS and TypoScript language
  • LTS - long ter msupport (bugfixes and updates)
  • usage rights and permissions (much more advanced thatn in WP/Joomla)
  • separation of design and content (in WP also but here is complex)
  • many plugins to integrate with external systems
  • several portals may be operated from a single admin/install
