Selecting the right content management system is an important decision in any global digital transformation project or major re-platforming. Often, an enterprise-scale content management system is key to success. Here, "enterprise" is defined as a platform's ability to deliver at scale, provide redundancy and support modern software engineering best practices, such as continuous delivery. Enterprise platforms should support the needs of global and local digital marketing teams, such as managing multiple sites, multiple languages and allowing editors to easily create engaging content and experiences for their users. As a CMS, WordPress is new to this conversation. However, the platform has evolved from a blogging tool to a more powerful content management system. These developments have gotten people talking about where the CMS stands, and if it can compete with enterprise-scale systems. We recently had the opportunity to put WordPress to the test. We chose it for a project building a multi-language microsite platform, and observed how WordPress performed in the key areas of: continuous delivery, development best practice, enterprise marketing needs, scale, redundancy, and security.
