“ J'ai par le passé longtemps cherché à me mettre à une solution qui intègre véritablement la notion de CMS. autant pour le développeur que pour l'utilisateur final. Après plusieurs essais, un ami m'a conseillé Modx et j'ai pris le temps de l'apprendre. J'avoue la simple facilité d'intégration d'un template et de ses placeholders fait de lui un outils très flexible. La communauté doit s'y mettre d'avantage pour le propulser. The African ModxOr ”

“ Sugarcrm has so much promise and flexibility, but unfortunately my firm has been unwilling to invest due to the fact the company straddles the line between an open source and a proprietary product. The way the licensing is presented makes it difficult to know if we own the code we develop, and there is always the possibility of being left unsupported in the future. We have recently been investing in the fork of sugarcrm called suitecrm and it answers the vast majority of our issues with sugar. ”
