"Hey Charlie, good to see a familiar face on yet another Cascade support forum. We're still ramping up 17 test sites (and counting) in Cascade 6.7.5 and getting ready to launch them. We're calling it project tidal wave."

We evaluated T4, OmniUpdate, and HannonHill. T4 had cloud issues and wasn't available most of the time. OmniUpdate was promising, but it is push and pull technology. We thought that would be too much traffic. Also, I don't think OmniUpdate had a good, basic role system that integrated with our CAS authentication.
You should know I'm still learning Cascade 6.7.5.
It's XML/XSLT driven for a lot of functionality - like indexing assets. I didn't know XSLT before we started using Cascade, but I'm learning it. I like that users can globally share and reuse assets. That being said, the roles and permissions can be an issue at first; admins need to learn their abilities in the system as much as users need to find out their abilities. It took us about 2 months to find most of what we could do and what we couldn't do and what admins had to turn on for us.
Some of what I don't like is probably attributable to the built-in TinyMCE editor: it fixes HTML trying to make it valid; it alters some valid PHP making it invalid; most of the features of TinyMCE are off by default.
I'd recommend getting an evaluation licence and everyone starts as admins so you can see where links are and what things do. Then, when users are divided into roles and they loose some functionality, they know how to communicate to the admins as to what it was they lost. We did that plus we got the 3 day on-site training for users and admins.
I am new to uwebd and looking for insights into Cascade. Our university has a home grown CMS and we are planning on replacing it. Hannon Hill's Cascade is one of the products we are reviewing. What features do like best that you find really useful and not on most other CMSs? What are your least favorite things about the product?

Hi all! I am hoping soon to get our University's news site into our new Drupal CMS. My team wants to bring several news sources into one integrated site. This includes news, alumnae news, athletic news, the University's magazine SCAN, and our social media channels (probably through the Rebel Mouse app). Boston University and Mizzou are two that do this really well but I'd appreciate hearing about others. Please share!See More
