SiteCore is primarily aimed at large corporate websites although it can be used by small to medium sized businesses.

The SiteCore CMS enables a team of non-technical staff without any programming experience to administer a range of corporate content. It also features an easy to use, intuitive interface, which is similar in appearance to MS Office, and uses this plus prior knowledge as a means of supporting that ease of use.
There is a strong emphasis on user interface design and usability which is one of several advantages of using propriety software.

This level of support includes regular updates, service level agreements and access to technical advice which is a particular feature of commercial CMS systems. This is further supported by online user manuals, documentation and training.
