I've been very happy that it's been a steady workhorse these past few years, and we're looking at utilizing more of the cms with our next re-write.
We use Ektron CMS400 for our organization's public-facing web site. Sometimes we use it for limited B2B and intranet purposes.
After all if that one word in the third paragraph of a product description isn’t bolded immediately the universe will end, therefore causing the company to go under.
We're currently using Ektron for both our internal, and external site.
Over the last 7 or so years, I've noticed a pretty massive change with the company and its proven to be beneficial.
From a technical perspective, I handle the implementation, administration and development for roughly 175 content editors, and just over 5000 publicly viewable pages.
For small organization use, I question if it is the best value in terms of staffing required and overkill of functionality; open-source options may be a better fit in this case.
Ektron is great when there is lots of structured content that needs to be managed, displayed, and/or repurposed.If you are working with mostly free-form content, and at a smaller organization, I think there are other better options.The Ektron CMS is being used by the website stake holders.As most know who work in a corporate setting, the company website is managed by Marketing.The so-called business problem the CMS addresses is the elusive, “we would like to update content on the site ourselves…” syndrome that many website owners/managers suffer from.The theory is that a CMS will eliminate the expense and often times – several days or more lead time that a busy web master may require to add or change content.
