CMSs included in the comparison:
Agility CMS is a Headless API-based Content Management System (CMS) with built-in Hybrid components for better Editor Experience.
Originally built as an alternative to WordPress as a blogging platform, ButterCMS is now a headless CMS that integrates with existing websites and apps to deliver content.
Contentful considers itself a content platform rather than a CMS. It allows organizations to control their content from a single hub and publish to any digital channel.
Contentstack is a SaaS platform built upon a microservices architecture, which helps improve performance and reduces the risk of unnecessary feature bloat.
Kentico’s out-of-the-box web parts, easy customizations, and open API allows customers to get new websites launched quickly.
Sitecore represents the DXP market. It adds all features inside a single platform, which means you need to change your business to adapt to them.
Similar to Agility, Optimizely is heavily affiliated with Azure to support its cloud offerings. However, Episerver still relies heavily on developers to manage upgrades.
Drupal / Acquia
Drupal as an open-source product is free, but the services and hosting for it are not, and upgrades need to be handled manually. Acquia works as a service to offset this effort.
