Wordpress is popular outside of IT, but a source of security concerns within

Wordpress is viewed with two sets of attitudes within our organization. It is not officially supported within the IT group due to security concerns, but there are numerous "grandfathered" sites, and sites created by outside agencies. Outside of IT, it is popular because of the ease of implementation and speed to launch. We are in the process of consolidating the Wordpress sites on a single environment to limit our exposure to risk, and exert some limited controls guidelines over its use.

Very popular, but has hidden costs and gotchas

While wildly popular, the product's featureset isn't all that robust. It clearly has underpinnings of a single-purpose blogging system, with weird API hooks, that has been uncomfortably extended to other uses. Many plugins, each of which need their own vetting, will be needed in typical installations.
