Why Should I Use a CMS?


Not all CMS's are equal

There are a lot of CMS's available and multiple for each platform. We have standardized on Joomla and DotNetNuke. We believe they represent the best solution for their respective platforms.


Aside from actually doing what it's supposed to do, security is a top requirement for a web site. When a web site is compromised it can manifest in a couple of ways. The hackers can gain access to sensitive information contained on the web site or server directly such as user’s private info or credit card numbers. Or the hackers can use your website to extract valuable information from the users by intercepting sensitive information being transmitted to your website by the users. Hackers can even use your website to attack your users and prey on flaws in the operating system or browser they are using. One of the attributes of Joomla and DotNetNuke that contributed to our selection was the size and activity of the core teams that develop and support them. Both have very active and experienced core and external developers who keep the platforms up to date. They release regular updates and have huge communities reporting any flaw or vulnerability detected. The size of the community ensures even the most obscure issues will be found before they become a liability.

Core Functionality

Commonly needed functionality is built in. Both systems include robust user management, the ability to author and edit web pages without the assistance of a developer, and the ability to expand functionality by leveraging an expansive third party market of add-in components and templates. The built in functionality represents thousands of man hours of development that you get out of the box.

Third Party Aftermarket

The aftermarket for Joomla and DotNetNuke are expansive. There are thousands of ready-made components for a staggering number of needs. When you build your solution on one of these platforms you can focus your efforts on developing only the parts that are unique to your business or strategy and leverage the aftermarket for the commodity functionality.
