What are Content Management Systems?

A content management system (CMS) is a software system that allows website administrators to create, manage, store and deploy content on Web pages from a central interface. It also allows website designers to code the websites page layouts in such a way that content can be dynamically served to your website visitors, while providing them with a consistent user experience.

There are hundreds of CMS systems in use today but only a few stand out. The most successful CMS systems in the world are free and are supported by communities of developers, programmers and users world-wide. This is extremely important when selecting a CMS for your website development project. Like any software, it needs to be updated to ensure security and bugs are fixed quickly and that it has a robust support network.

At DCG we primarily use 3 content management systems based on our clients needs. WordPress, Magento and Django CMS. Each has their strengths and their weaknesses. Our goal is to develop your website on the right CMS.

WordPress

WordPress is a free and open source CMS and is, by far, the most popular CMS in use on the Web, with more than 60 million websites worldwide. Even the top website development companies in the world built their own website using the WordPress CMS platform. With that many users, there isn’t much WordPress can’t do for your website. It is supported by a vast community of developers, programmers and users and if you do experience a technical issue, likely someone has already solved it.

Magento

Where WordPress fails, Magento excels. Magento is a feature-rich eCommerce platform that gives online merchants complete control over the functionality of their online store. Magento’s Search Engine Optimization, Catalog Management, powerful marketing tools and Custom Modules give merchants the ability to create websites that provide the ultimate shopping experience for their customers.

Django CMS

Our developers keep screaming over Django CMS and how it is the greatest CMS platform ever. So, we took a look. Let’s be honest here, sorry Dev Team, Django CMS is not for everyone. But, when it comes to web applications and custom programming solutions, there is no rival. Django CMS is a developers dream CMS. There is no limit to what can be done with Django CMS. We will be keeping an eye on this one.
