Overall Satisfaction with DNN Platform

We use DNN [Platform] in several in-house projects and sites, as well as implementing it for other clients for their website content management systems and managing their sites. We also build custom solutions on top the framework for other installs of DNN [Platform], for which there currently exists no module or solution. It's a middle ground solution for those who need customization and flexibility, even enough for enterprise level, but still want some granular controls to be able to make it as easy for non-technical people such as content developers to add content without messing up the design, seo or compliance.
  • Granular controls for permission settings
  • Unlimited portal farm for creating many sites and sharing assets
  • Easy to use page management and controls
  • Intuitive interface
  • Have come a long way in the past five+ years
  • Missing a tool to test for compliance (built in)
  • All module developers should be held to a standard before being allowed to sell in the dnn store
  • Confusion between dnn and evoq creates a lot of headaches for us
  • DNN helps us win bids on projects through the improvements the community has done over the past few years; we were ready to scrap it all together but it has made great strides
  • DNN's community has come back and is actively working to improve and expand the capabilities of the cms
  • on a negative note, the confusion between evoq and dnn has caused us headaches
Content Author / Administrator
DNN [Platform] is as good as any CMS platform out there today. It's easier to use than WordPress for sophisticated sites and even (once set up properly) for non-technical people to maintain. For novice users without support, it's probably not the ideal solution against WordPress or wix etc. WP has more modules and extensions available. Drupal is a nightmare to use. Sitecore is expensive.

Do you think DNN Platform delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with DNN Platform's feature set?

Yes

Did DNN Platform live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of DNN Platform go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy DNN Platform again?

Yes

DNN [Platform] is great for organizations of any size who wish to have a robust CMS to manage their site. DNN is not ideal for a small site that is better suited to a super easy to user interface such as Wix. DNN [Platform] is plenty strong enough for enterprises and large entities.
