How is Sitefinity different from open-source CMSs?

In the evaluation of open-source versus commercial CMSs, what should I be looking for?

Over the last 5 years, we have used many different content management systems. Some we have replaced entirely with a new product, and some we have patched and extended. The one thing we have learned most of all in a CMS system is that it must be easy to use, quick to setup, and affordable for the small to medium size business. This could be said for many CMS applications, specially Open Source as it is free.

Look for adaptability

by 2BlueUK In reply to CMS

We recently switched our CMS as revamped website comes with its custom made one.
It is absolutely a nightmare, the old system was far more flexible. Also find out what sort of files can the main directory support as many new features will have to be uploaded to main, especially for java or flash apps. It wont always be possible but the more control you have over the page the better.

my recommendations

If you like to evaluate open-source versus commercial CMSs, this should be on yout list:

OS: DotNetNuke, Drupal
COM: Kentico, Sitefinity

Have in mind that the commercial CMSs sometimes goes with free editions that can be used for commercial purposes - then you get professional product with nice and easy-to-use UI for 0 price.
