Overall Satisfaction with Sitecore Web Content Management

Sitecore is being used as the main website for customers to access paid digital content. It keeps track of all the user accounts, manages access to content, and organizes content for end-users.

Pros

  • Manages many categories and subcategories of content.
  • Handles user accounts and is an all in one solution.

Cons

  • Implementing it is very expensive from a software and development point of view.
  • Developers complained that it was difficult to learn to program for.
  • Sitecore has allowed the roll out of very big and complex platforms.
  • However it was very expensive to implement and maintain.
The main reason to use Sitecore is if you want to develop something completely custom. It can be a fit if you have a large budget and a specific vision that can't be achieved with a more off-the-shelf solution. It also has good features for controlling the publication of new content through multi-step in-ouse approval processes. Sitecore is very capable, but I would try to avoid Sitecore if you can because it is a beast to work with and is very expensive to implement.
