WordPress and Ektron offer the basic features of a CMS, but they are targeted towards different audiences and have different capabilities. WordPress is widely used for creating blogs, personal websites, and small to medium sized business websites, while Ektron is geared towards larger businesses and organisations with specific needs for their websites.
WordPress is a popular, easy-to-use, open-source CMS that is well-suited to small businesses and bloggers, while Ektron is a more advanced, paid CMS that is geared towards larger organisations.
