Overall Satisfaction with Magnolia (V5 and later versions)

Overall it is a good CMS product, but sometimes it has issues with publishing content. It is open source and pure Java. It is easy to deploy and maintain. Also, it has a good community to ask questions. We can customize on our demand. Java developers learn it very quickly without any knowledge curve.

It is open source and Java based. They are the major consideration and it has an open community to support. We can find answers easily. Also since top users are using it - that give us confidence to use it. It is a Java purely based framework and developers can easily pick it up and use it. We are happy to have selected it.
Content Author / Administrator
It is open source so from a budget perspective it is a good choice. It is Java based, so Java developers can learn it fast and it is easy to maintain. It has an author and subscriber model, so you can distribute content to multiple servers without any problem. It is a JCR support Oracle database so the content repository is safe.
