CMS Survey: Drupal, Joomla, Plone Tops in Value
Respondents grade nearly 30 content management systems.
Accounting for factors like quality and usability, the Drupal, Joomla and Plone content management systems received some of the highest marks in satisfaction survey conducted recently by the Nonprofit Technology Network.
As part of the survey, NTEN asked more than 1,000 members of the non-profit technology community to rate a list of nearly 30 open source and proprietary content management systems in terms of quality and reliability, sales support, delivering on promises and deadlines, usability and overall value. Six hundred and fifty respondents completed the survey, giving the systems grades from A+ to F.
With 128 responses (the most of any other CMS), Drupal received an A in overall value. Joomla (71 responses) and Plone (55 responses) also received A’s in overall value. All three are open source systems.
The WordPress system received an A+ in value—although that’s based on only 15 responses.
Receiving C marks in value were the iMIS (21 responses) and Convio Pagebuilder (10 responses) proprietary systems.
