We are a not-for-profit and doing a web redesign discovery project with CMS being at the forefront of discussions. We are working with an outside ad agency that is proposing Drupal for our WCMS and stating its the best option for our future. Huge community, open source… the wave of the future. We have a java back end (and in house java developers). We’d like to also consider systems like Magnolia and DotCMS. Any experience and recommendations on our evaluation? Thank you!
As popular in name as these three open source CMS are, the fact of the matter is they are simply NOT the best CMS on the market. I realize that this statement may upset people in their camps but it is a statement of fact.
For years, people's honest intentions have been doing these content management systems a disservice by blindly recommending them for everything under the sun just to help them gain more popularity and a larger user base. What they don't realize, however, is this type of action does more to hurt the projects name than to help it (in most cases). Today, I'm going to explain to you why these three popular CMS simply are not the best ones on the market.
