The french specialist Smile asked to 1373 professionals to analyze the penetration of these tools and content management. Many companies and businesses in the CAC 40 SMEs participated ( 95% of respondents report directly involved in the choice of CMS for their business ) .
According to the survey, it’s WordPress that tops the most open source CMS used: 1 in 4 surveyed would use the CMS.
On the podium also included Joomla ( 17.63 %) and Drupal ( 14.64 %). SPIP is fourth with 8.4%. Other tools ( Typo3 , eZ Publish, Liferay … ) not exceeding 5 %.
But the ranking is different if only the votes of large companies with more than 1,000 employees are retained : it is Drupal which tops this panel with 22% of positive responses to WordPress (18%) and Joomla ( 12%).
However , WordPress triumph in small firms (under 20 employees) with 40% of users. Joomla is used more in this segment (28%). Drupal (16%) and SPIP (12.63%) are the other two Open Source CMS.
The study then turned to the opinion of respondents , CMS by CMS , asking them their views on the quality of their tool. To the question ” What is your opinion on these CMS? ” , they had a choice of three answers : Negative, Neutral or Positive .
WordPress which is obtained both as positive feedback ( about 7 to 10) and also the less negative (less than 5 %). WordPress has also increased the number of positive ratings collected …
If WordPress is lead on this issue, three other open source CMS follow : Drupal , Liferay and Plone. Drupal retains its position as the second , but the percentage of positive ratings fell sharply in a year. Plone behind in fifth position , Joomla saves almost 45 % positive ratings .
The negative opinion, Plone , Typo3 , Joomla and SPIP has the largest number of critics : the proportion of negative reviews they have gathered more than 20% each. CMS Made Simple, Drupal account for, them , very few negative votes: less than 10% .
But as Smile reminds us in his study, these results must be :
“A good CMS in a given context is not necessarily best suited to another context, in another project, beyond the instructions given. In this study , do not hesitate to try, to touch, to evaluate tools, always keeping in mind your needs and expectations: this is the real key to successful implementation of a CMS . ”
