Umbraco is used as the main website for one of the business units. With that being said, it was used for the whole organization as a core point of content for technical documents and reference materials for our product. It addressed the problem of not having a functional website and met security needs.
- Very simple content management.
- Secure, no hacking because no one knows how to use it
- Not user friendly.
- Need to be a programmer to do anything cool.
- Not compatible with common digital marketing applications.
- Very cumbersome, blocky.
- Horrible user interface.
I didn't like Umbraco at all. It was already in place by someone who didn't have an SEO background. I evaluated an upgrade from Umbraco to Wordpress or Hubspot CMS and definitely beyond a doubt Umbraco couldn't compete. I have been for years easily updating content in CMS including currently working in Ruby on Rails and in my perspective, Umbraco is one of the worst. It would never be a choice for anywhere that cares about SEO and being found on the web for marketing. Maybe it's ok for an internal library or something but I wouldn't waste my time.
