Editor's Notes

  • As developers we’re always looking at new technology and new ways of doing things, however we felt it was important to base our selection on technology we knew rather than learn a whole new platform like Ruby on Rails or dotNet
  • We found that a lot of other CMS’s the data, application and presentation are interlinked. Wordpress you’re stuck in the loop, Drupal everything is a node. We wanted the ability to be able to separate the different aspects to give us greater flexibility especially when it comes to the presentation layer and reusing content.
  • I think most of us will have seen a wordpress site blow up when you click upgrade. We also needed a cms that plays nicely across a dev / test / uat / production topology

  • We wanted something that we could extend and build on easily and quickly. Often we can be looking at delivering a proof od concept or an mvp in a very short period of time
  • Content editors
    Staging / live publishing
  • Cost of implementation
    Total cost of ownership
    Return on investment

    License fees / support fees

    Importantly anything we picked was backed by a commercial entity that was using their CMS for their own work
