Sitecore CMS Screenshots

Pros
  • Because Sitecore CMS is a .NET-based solution, you can build your website from the ground up, customizing everything from templates to layouts and more.
  • Sitecore CMS makes it easy to create world-class websites with its open architecture and rich development environment and tools.
  • Sitecore CMS helps you reach your customers in their preferred format with functionality to deliver content on multiple devices, including mobile.
Cons
  • If you do not have developers with .NET experience, you’ll probably have to hire an outside development team to help you use the product.
  • If you operate on a smaller scale, Sitecore may not be the most affordable option for your needs.
  • The Sitecore backend can be slow when you log in as an administrator
Overall

Sitecore CMS allows you to customize your website to fit your business and reach your target audiences. If you have a relatively big website, or host many websites, Sitecore CMS is a great option for your needs. However, if your company lacks .NET experience or does not use Microsoft Windows Servers, SQL Server or the like, you will most likely have to contract a development team to help you get the most out of the solution. If you have a large web infrastructure and the resources, Sitecore CMS may be the way to go. If you have a limited budget and only a few sites to manage, this product may not be the best option.
