“I get by with a little help from my friends...”

When The Beatles recorded this classic tune, they probably didn’t realize it would one day land on Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Then again, maybe they did. They were, after all, The Beatles.

We all need a little help sometimes. Case in point: if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the specter of evaluating content management systems, your friends at Uniform are providing a little help to get by.

That help comes at just the right time. With so many CMSes flooding the market – from monolithic to headless, open source to composable – finding the right solution can feel a little helter-skelter. Using Uniform's CMS Comparison Guide, you can get a vendor-neutral breakdown of some leading CMSes and tips for picking the best tool for your job.

Navigating the noise with Uniform

Uniform is a new breed of digital experience composition platform (DXCP) that works with many of the world’s leading CMSes as part of a composable architecture. It gives developers and business teams the tools they need to do their best work and deliver faster than ever.

Uniform works as a value-add for many companies because its product can tap both emerging technologies and legacy systems through what they call an “experience layer.” For developers, this means greater flexibility and less time creating “glue code” between services. For marketing teams, this layer provides a consistent experience in accessing data from multiple sources or previewing content prior to publishing.

No stack would be complete without CMS. Because these platforms play a central role in content development and delivery, it makes sense that Uniform would have insight into the different types of CMSes available – and how to choose the right one for your goals. 

What’s in the CMS Comparison Guide?

The in-depth comparison guide catalogs the details of 15 leading CMS vendors, including three monoliths and 12 headless and composable CMSes. Along with side-by-side comparisons, the guide details the strengths and weaknesses of each vendor across features such as content modeling, integration, workflow, and more.

The real "meat" of the guide is the granular comparison table, which organizes the attributes for each system into a large grid. This allows you to scan every vendor's abilities – from delivery APIs to CDN capabilities – with relative ease. 

“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, 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.”

Cutting through noise and eliminating pain points? Sounds like the kind of help we could all use from our friends.
