WordPress VIP vs Sitecore

Agility is the primary competitive advantage of WordPress.

Enterprises need software that’s nimble enough to respond to changes in consumer demand, with the stability to power performance at scale. With WordPress VIP, you get the best of both worlds. Open source software, intuitive workflows, and a WYSIWYG editor empower your teams to spin up sites quickly and get to market faster than the competition. In the background, WordPress VIP’s expert engineers handle security, software updates, and maintenance, so your applications run smoothly 24/7.

With content at the core of customer experiences, ownership is key.

Trouble is, in an enterprise context, most software comes from closed, opaque systems commonly associated with strict vendor lock-in. WordPress VIP is different. With us, you’ll enjoy complete ownership over the product, your data, and your customer journey. And because WordPress developers are exponentially more common than Sitecore experts, you’ll never struggle to find the technical talent you need to bring your product vision to life.

Over a third of the web is built on WordPress, in large part thanks to its inherent flexibility.

If you want decoupled architectures, WordPress can do that. Need localization and multilingual support? WordPress can do that, too. No matter what you want to build, WordPress VIP’s recommendations for trusted integrations and plugins equip you to customize the platform to suit exactly your enterprise’s needs. And unlike Sitecore’s bundled services, you’ll never pay for features or functions you don’t use–which means your applications will run smoother than ever with no excess baggage weighing you down.

WordPress makes the complex simple.

In fact, WordPress’s success in the enterprise to date is rooted in the fact that it’s not enterprise software. It has a tried and tested UI that allows your whole team to easily update and change your site (alongside new editorial controls that ensure your content always stays on-brand). Why is simplicity so important? The more accessible things are, the more folks will actually use the software — which means they’ll spend less time tackling workflow issues, and more time driving results.
