I met various people who would like to see the interface, some basic things, component creation, etc. to see how it looks like in real world.

I can't show the instance I'm maintaining as it's internal in my company, but is there somewhere some kind of "demo" available with ability to login to see a real Tridion interface and it's basic services, coreservices to connect to via API? To see creation of content components, etc. Or there is no such option?
I know that these Tridion instances are quite specific to the needs of the actual customer, so they are all different, but I met different products already with such an online trial/demo account earlier.
I assume the answere will be NO...

Your assumption is correct as the Answer is NO.

You may want to refer the similar question I have asked few months ago:


  • I've flagged the question for moderator attention. Hoping we can get the SO question moved here. Sep 27, 2013 at 7:20
  • @Pankaj Gaur ,Thanks! Good question/post, would be really nice to move that here Dominic!

  • Since it is not viable to move every tridion tagged question from SO to here, we sort of decided to only move the new questions from now on. So I propose we'll do the same here and let this one exists and accept it as a duplicate from SO. Sep 27, 2013 at 8:45

There are training amazon instances but they are not free, if you are interested you should contact the sales department.

  • Thanks, will try to contact them, seems for now the only option to become a partner or to buy a Tridion instance. :) I don't know, which one is cheaper?

  • @BVL the sales department will be able to tell you which is cheaper in your case, there are different benefits with each. Sep 27, 2013 at 8:40

    @BVL The partner should be cheaper one, but just paying the fees will not make you eligible for the partner - you should also be in line of SDL's vision and there are other criteria for the same Sep 27, 2013 at 9:02

Don't rule out reaching out to SDL education for access to either the training environment (not typical) or to maybe purchase eLearning.

To get a basic feel of Tridion, you can find images, blog posts, and some videos online. I have some short examples on YouTube and am overdue for adding more. Kah Tang has a more in-depth example of 2011.

Joining someone (SDL, a partner, or customer), getting trained, and/or sharing Tridion knowledge are currently the best ways to get access to an SDL Tridion environment.
