Who is the Best-in-Class Enterprise WCM? SDL Tridion Sites, of Course.

Independent analyst firm Ars Logica recently revealed SDL Tridion Sites as the best-in-class pick for most scalable enterprise web content management platform currently available in-market. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Sites received the second-highest overall score.
These highly-recognized honors come just after the Web Content Management (WCM) solution, SDL Tridion Sites 9.1, release.

We’re not surprised at all by this announcement. Content Bloom has been a proud global implementation partner of SDL for many years and are fully in tune with how powerful this platform is. SDL’s ability to consistently implement large-scale changes and improvements, as well as feature intuitive, user-friendly, and flexible interfaces allows our clients the ability to seamlessly navigate their expansive sites.

We’ve had the opportunity to work with SDL Tridion Sites 9.1 and, for a number of reasons, are loving it. Specifically its strengths around:
  • Large-scale deployment
  • Ability to connect to other applications within the site
  • Collaboration
  • Connectivity
  • Scalability
  • Flexibility
  • Integration with translation software and machine translation
  • Globalization/localization capabilities

And that’s not even the half of it.

Founder of Ars Logica, Tony White, said, “[SDL] produces an extremely scalable best-of-breed platform that incorporates one of the broadest sets of feature-functionality available on the market. The Tridion Sites product is particularly well-suited to global enterprise deployments with rigorous brand management and digital marketing requirements. The vendor’s DX products above and beyond Tridion Sites also make it a strong contender in the digital experience platform market.”

Wondering about the criteria to become Ars Logica’s top pick? Before a platform is considered a possible contender, it must meet specific thresholds in a few main areas within the business, technology, and services departments. These include:
  • Usability and interface
  • Content marketing tools
  • Enterprise tech stack leverage
  • Momentum and strategic vision
  • Scalability
  • Flexibility
  • Development tools
  • Ease of administration
As we all know, SDL is a global leader in content management and is used primarily by high-level, enterprise companies due to its exceptional flexibility with regard to content, layout, translation, code, and localization/globalization abilities.

However, one of Content Bloom’s favorite attributes is SDL’s ability to bring the tech community together and really listen to the users’ needs and wants. Who doesn’t love a large-scale platform dedicated to the user journey?

Let it not be forgotten that a new Tridion Integration Framework was also mentioned in the report. This will allow marketers to plug SDL Tridion Sites into a variety of technologies including SAP Commerce Cloud, Salesforce, Bynder, Aprimo, and others.

We’re certainly celebrating with you, SDL! Congrats on the well-deserved win.
