SAN FRANCISCO, March 21, 2023 — Uniform, the leading provider in the emerging software category of digital experience composition platforms (DXCP), has launched an in-depth report to help brands find the right content management system (CMS) for their website and digital content execution. The CMS Comparison Guide is the result of Uniform’s unique perspective working not as a CMS but as a key partner to many CMS providers.
Uniform is building a category around the reality that organizations often struggle to manage their ever-multiplying tools and content sources. A solution like Uniform, which understands the pivotal role a CMS plays in the tech stack, can unify those tools and unlock the value of their content for creating dynamic experiences across websites, mobile devices, IoTs, etc.
Anchoring the guide is a side-by-side comparison of 15 vendors, along with a summary of each vendor, covering how they work, integrate, and build out digital content programs. The report also supplies insights into the rise of headless technology and how it impacts the choice of a CMS.
The 15 vendors analyzed in the first-of-its-kind guide include three monolithic CMS providers and a dozen headless, composable CMS companies. The guide gauges strengths and weaknesses in areas like content modeling, integration, workflow, and more. Featured companies include Adobe Experience Manager, Contentful, Contentstack, Sanity, Sitecore Experience Manager, Strapi and more.
Statista reports that nearly two billion consumers shop online, and nearly 60% of all web traffic occurs on a mobile device. The need for engaging, omnichannel content is accelerating. Large enterprise companies are seeking a CMS that can deliver modern experiences such as VR, hyper-personalization, video, and more.
“The CMS field is getting increasingly crowded, making it difficult for brands across industries to identify a partner and know where to start,” said Darren Guarnaccia, president of Uniform. “Our guide helps you cut through the noise, as our team has decades of experience working with and for CMS providers. Our platform further assists companies by preventing them from getting locked into a single vendor, fueling more innovation and eliminating content management pain points.”
In addition, we invite you to join the CMSWire webinar It’s not me, it’s you, CMS at 9 a.m. PT/12 noon ET on Wednesday, March 22, hosted by leading CX expert Mark Demeny.
