Overall Satisfaction with SDL Tridion

SDL Tridion is used for corporate website maintenance and is updated by IT and ER groups. It allows us to add new products to the catalog and keep our company's information and news up to date. All work is done internally. All components and pages are created by our company internally, and all the assets are provided by external authors and graphic designers.
  • It allows for creating a variety of page layouts
  • It supports SEO management
  • It has good back-end to front-end integration
  • It would be great to have an ability to reuse images in the components of different proportions
  • It would be good to have an internal tool that helps to find if a component is linked to another component or is used on some pages
  • Sometimes it takes too long to propogate changes even the small ones
  • SDL is a very complex system. Creating custom components by external vendors turned out to be expensive.
  • The learning curve is very slow, so training takes a lot of time and cost.
  • The revamped corporate site looks clean, modern, and is mobile-friendly.
SDL Tridion is good for large-scale sites that use a lot of pages based on templates. Specifically, it is great for extensive online catalogs. It also good for creating microsites. For the simpler scenarios that require all pages to have different layouts and stylesheets associated with them, using Tridion may be too much of a hassle.
