Product intro

Contentful is a pure CaaS (Content as a Service) player. It comes from Berlin, and is currently the global market leader for decoupled hosted content management.

Joomla! is one of the big three PHP CMSes. Currently it uses only a single component from the Symfony project. Joomla remains a strong contender with a large number of users and extensions.

Main advantages
  • Widely used across industries
  • No technical operations needed
  • Free tier for hobbyists
  • Large developer and user base
  • Plenty of ready made extensions available
  • Tried and tested basic concepts

 

Main disvantages
  • Limited customisation capabilities
  • Vendor lock in (though export is possible)
  • Pricing for large amounts of content
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new
