Sitecore Web Experience Manager CMS is the platform of choice for leading companies around the world, powering more than 32,000 websites.
The platform is pretty user friendly. The site structure and hierarchy is fairly easy to follow and the editing capabilities are straightforward for the most part.
It's very finicky. Some times the modules don't let you edit like you could previously and you have to discover work-arounds for some things. Also, you should be able to copy a page template and then just replace the content on the new page but when you do that, it copies over all the new content you implement and they shouldn't stay tied together like that.
You have to figure out a lot of work-arounds so when that happens, make sure your team documents them so the other users will have that same knowledge
We are able to quickly build new landing pages that we can distribute to our markets in other countries for their own use.
That you could find agencies that worked with it and also that you could find tutorials on how to update the website since it is popular.
I disliked the fact that we would update content and most of the time the formatting would get messed up. We had to learn some basic "tricks" and code in order to try to figure it out but it was very frustrating if we wanted to give some content updates to someone new who didn't know that Sitecore had issues. Also, it was rigid and we wanted to make things look a lot better but we were stuck in our template.
It was a very rigid platform and I wouldn't recommend it to organizations looking for something versatile and flexible. Marketing couldn't even do basic updates sometimes to the home page due to our restrictions.
It was the back end to our Woodruff Arts Center website. The benefit is that we needed a website and this fit the purpose.
I like the robust nature of the tool.
The ability to customize or use out of the box.
In addition, the Customer Experience module which is able to personalize content & provide uiq1ue analytics.
With the workflow module, we segment localization to the countries, they update content & the workflow send to the webmaster for accuracy of brand and template presentation.
I dislike the separation of the marketing vs. the developer side. In order to make template adjustments one must be a developer to get the manuals. This demands a test for .net.
Great product, easy for marketers, however need experts to develop templates.
We had a brochure type of sharepoint website and converted to Sitecore. It has the marketing ability for content management, easy for localized countries, personalization, analytics for personalization, and responsive.
We are now a lead & education driving website.
Thoroughly enjoy using Sitecore more so than others. We have switched from another platform to this one and so far we have liked it. We are currently going through a content migration that will be going on for a little while.
Sometimes loading time is a bit long. The screen will freeze and I will have to reload. This can be frustrating. I usually log out and give it some time and try again a bit later. Hopefully this is something that will improve over time.
Definitely would recommend.
Problems that are being solved include innovative marketing techniques and operations. We believed we could achieve a lot by using Sitecore and thought it was our best bet. This system is a lot more efficient.
The ability to build minimal to robust personalized sites. Also, reusing existing content is easy - no one likes starting from scratch!
Uploading files could be more streamlined.
Easy to use and customize.
Website content management and soon for personalized customer digital experiences. We realized we are only scratching the surface of what is possible using SiteCore for personalized experiences. We are also in the process of integrating a new CRM system with the platform. This will lead to stronger digital inbound strategies and results.
SiteCore is easy to use, has incredible functionality to integrate with third party applications and tools.
The ability to build over a base product and ease of integrations is the feature I like best.
The pricing model isn't consistent across implementations. I would have liked to see this product have a stronger sales team and support.
If you are dreaming of a product of the Class of Adobe AEM and expect SiteCore to perform just as well, then you would want to rethink!
If you are a small to medium size enterprise looking at cost effective solutions to launch, then SiteCore is the way to go.
