What Is A CMS?

Content management systems (CMS) help facilitate the creation, publishing, distribution, organization and management of digital content.

CMS platforms help create the structure of how information such as articles, videos, design elements and images will be presented. Also, they provide you with all the tools necessary to populate that onsite content.

When determining what CMS you should use, our team of digital experts help you find the right solution based on the unique needs of your company. Each CMS can be custom designed and tailored to your team’s needs and abilities.

Benefits & Issues

Benefits

  1. Good for very simple ecommerce (1-3 products)
  2. Fast to set up sites
  3. Large community supporting it and updating the code.
  4. Open source and widely used across the web.
  5. Suitable for simple content informational sites, blogs and standard professional sites.

Issues

  1. Not suitable for regular or advanced e-commerce projects, but can integrate with Magento to overcome problem. There is an ecommerce plugin wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-e-commerce/, though the functionality is limited, so it may not be sufficient for the client (depending on the client’s demands)
  2. Must update it to keep it secure
  3. Not good for customized sites with complex user generated features (i.e. can’t build Facebook on it)
  4. Not good for large media files
  5. Plugs-ins may get broken with updates (so extra maintenance is required for Wordpress sites with plugins)

Benefits

  1. Open source ecommerce solution
  2. Has robust number of features with default functionality
  3. Excellent SEO capabilities
  4. Supports multiple languages (namely localization)
  5. Works with variety of payment systems and shipping vendors

Issues

  1. Bulky, slow, and very resource consuming. Runs very slow on shared hosting and needs to be on at least virtual or dedicated hosting.
  2. Only the standard feature is free and for the more robust features there is a yearly licensing fee.
  3. It may not be possible to customize the product and checkout pages with features like select drop-downs. It is recommended that designers pay attention to the way default Magento pages look, by visiting demo.magentocommerce.com/ and include available elements into their website designs. This becomes more essential if the client has a limited budget and only needs standard functionality.

Benefits

  1. Open source and widely used
  2. For simple Informational sites and corporate sites
  3. Many modules and extensions which allows the site to be built for any functionality
  4. Large community of developers supporting and innovating
  5. Fast to set up

Issues

  1. Not the most user-friendly content-management-system. Its very complex and any client that asks for it should review it first.
  2. Is not ideal for ecommerce websites. Allows ecommerce module integration (Ubercart), though a thorough investigation is required to make sure all the client’s needs can be met.
  3. Forms customization is problematic, default look is recommended (a note to designers).
  4. The information submitted via the forms is not stored in the admin panel by default, it’s sent to the corresponding admin’s email
  5. There is a learning curve for developers not familiar with it.
  6. It has limits in displaying data taken dynamically from other places on the site or from external sources.

Benefits

  1. Fast, robust and scalable
  2. Great for informational websites, complex social network sites, or customized ecommerce sites
  3. Can handle large numbers of database inquiries at once
  4. The most user friendly content management system
  5. Excellent solution for implementing of highly loaded systems (social networks, content sites, informational portals etc.)

Issues

  1. Custom built so it takes more time to develop.
  2. Although its built on an open source framework, it is not open source to be used by the public.
  3. Outside developers aren’t familiar with the back-end and there will be a learning curve
