Overall Satisfaction

We use Ektron to manage content, create dynamic pages, create widgets, and templates.
  • Manage user security and roles
  • Manage content and rollback
  • .Net inetgration
  • Ektron sometimes tries to clean up javascript and HTML that we enter with code for specific enhancements that we need to do. Ektron tries to clean some of this code up when it saves the content, thereby removing our intended implementation.
  • It's a very good tool to use in today's dynamic web where content needs to change often.
The ability to create .Net widgets is powerful feature that allows easy customization.

Other CMS's offer a lot more plugins from 3rd party vendors, but if you need to do a lot of customizations yourself and you are a .Net shop, then I would recommend Ektron.
Ektron is a great implementation if you are a professional .Net shop.
It's a great product. Our struggles are when we push it to it's limits and run into particular scenarios that don't work well.

For most implementations, it should work well.
