Evaluating WordPress as a Web CMS

  • 3-Mar-2010

There's a debate raging within Twitter about whether traditional blogging platform WordPress is also a CMS. Our take: many organizations are using WordPress as a CMS. That makes it a CMS.

Yesterday we released a new evaluation of WordPress into our Web Content Management research stream. Subscribers can download the complete, 13-page review here. (If you are not yet a subscriber, you can try out a free research sample here.)

WordPress fits into our "Simpler Products" category. A larger enterprise would almost never want use one of those tools for a major web property. But they offer useful alternatives for SMB scenarios, as well as simpler projects.

Our customers say...

"I've been using the The Web CMS Research and I have to say that the quality of the analysis is flawless. How your team not only gets beneath the surface of CMS products but also highlights the good, bad, and ugly in very readable research is nothing short of miraculous."
