White Paper: Why Your Salesforce Community Needs Content Management

Online employee communities have been an essential enterprise tool since the early days of intranets. For Salesforce customers, Community Cloud offers easy-to-use, templated communities that meet the needs of some organizations.

However, Salesforce Communities fall short in many ways. They lack robust workflows, multi-level access control, and other features you’d expect from a Content Management System (CMS).

In spite of these shortcomings, building employee communities on Salesforce is enticing, because they leverage the power of the Salesforce platform and all of its data, and they also take advantage of the new Lightning Component Framework that will change the way every Salesforce customer builds and uses everything on the platform.

Fortunately, it’s possible to get the best of both worlds with Stantive’s OrchestraCMS. This CMS runs natively on Salesforce, and thus provides all the advantages of the platform, including Lightning components.

And since it’s an enterprise-class CMS in its own right, it addresses all the issues organizations might face as they implement employee communities on the Salesforce Community Cloud.
