Q1.

Could you tell us more about the project: what were your needs and the challenges you faced before meeting Strapi?

We had to develop a fully functional training site in a 3 months-time (including alpha and beta-testing phases), dedicated to the IT department staff members, with a lot of content to produce and expose. Therefore, we wanted to spend as little time as possible to build the site backbone and the use of a headless CMS was quickly viewed as a necessity.

Q2.

Why did you choose Strapi?

Our strategy was to let the people who have the technical knowledge decide, that is to say our developer teams. After testing the main headless CMS in the market and drafting POCs, the developers fancied Strapi’s ease of use, customization abilities and interface, so we decided to keep going with this solution for our new training site. The Node.js codebase was also a plus, for our backend is 100% Node.js. We knew it would be a real accelerator and we had to take that into account. The simple and uncluttered interface was in favor for Strapi as well, since we needed to have all site content contributors use it easily.

Q3.

Are you happy with your choice?

Strapi has turned out to be a great choice so far: technical setup was really quick, and in a few days we were able to have a drafted site up & running, leveraging Strapi main functionalities. Strapi simple stack (Node.js, MongoDB) made it easy to build CI/CD automation and infrastructure setup in AWS.

Q4.

What would you advise to someone who has never tried Strapi?

Just give it a try! It is simple to install and integrate with your site, so you can quickly see if it feeds your functional needs.
