Hello and welcome to the weekly Sitefinity Technical overview webinar!My name is Greg, I am a sales engineer at the Sitefinity team in Telerik.
Most companies rely heavily on their web presence. When building and maintaining a website there are two key moments:The efficiency during the development of the websiteThe adoption of the system by the business users that are ultimately going to use it on a daily basis to insert and manage the web contentFor developers and designers, the key factor when choosing a CMS is the level up to which the system eases their lives. This happens in a number of ways:One is - providing tools that deliver the functionality which the end client requiresAs expected the core functionalities – creating pages, news, events, inserting images , videos, documents, creating forms and lists come out of the box. Easy permissions control, user management, publishing to multiple channels and workflow come out of the box too. However there’s no CMS that covers 100% of the needs of a business – there’s always something specific for the company that the CMS has to cater to, so the developer has to add it in.Second - Using familiar technology, which developers and designers don’t need yet to get acquainted to, in order to extend the system easily.A HUGE advantage would be if the CMS facilitates the process of extending the core functionality through tools that speed it up.As for the adoption - after all, at the end of the day, it’s the company employees – the business users, that will take on the website and start managing it, adding new content and controlling the one that’s already there. The CMS HAS to provide interface that will be easily adopted and wouldn’t require too much effort to be understood.
