Featuring the concept of unified structural elements called Content Items, the system can be used for various content delivery scenarios with several output formats including, but not limited to, HTML,PDF, Flash / Flex and Silverlight.

Relation to Microsoft SharePoint

Sitecore has been compared to Microsoft SharePoint, [5] Microsoft's primary web-based Content Management System and a product of the Microsoft Office platform. Although there are certain areas where the features of both products overlap, both systems aim at different fields of application. Whereas Microsoft SharePoint is typically used in intranet collaboration scenarios[6], Sitecore is regularly employed to manage both public and internal web content.


Sitecore, which is built on Microsoft .NET 3.5 technology, delivers personalized content to visitors dynamically[7].
