Overall Satisfaction

We use Tridion extensively for both our company intranet and public sites. I find Tridion a very effective and efficient Content Management System. There may be some areas where it can be made better, but for our purposes, it's doing a good job.
Tridion is used globally by our content owners as they build their country websites, in their own language, using the same branding.

Pros

  • Multilingual functionality by effective blueprinting really does it's job.
  • Re-usability of templates and building blocks across different projects works really well.
  • The interface makes it easier for developers to navigate around the tool.

Cons

  • Workflow needs to be addressed and worked on. We've tried implementing it back in R5 and it kept hanging the pages in between steps.
  • SiteEdit appear to be a problem in our setup. I would expect the functionality to be "plug and play" but we end up custom coding parts of it to make it work.
  • It would really be nice if they offer free "plug and play" add ons to the tool, i.e. polling widgets, commenting widgets, social networking, etc, without having to do too much coding to integrate.
  • Enable for easy portability and re-usability of content with other CMS.
  • I'm not the one dealing with the business part, but that we've been using Tridion for over 5 years to create public facing sites for our company is a good indication that it does it's job with what the business needs.
There's already too much work and content put it in our current system that to move to another CMS.
Tridion will do its job for simple, less interactive websites. However, if you're looking into creating sites that are more interactive, more personalized and transactional based interaction with visitors, using it can be very challenging. Lots of coding involved, on top of the templating work.
