Content Management Systems (CMS)

Over the last few years Content Management Systems (CMS) have become very popular with more and more businesses leveraging CMS to improve business productivity. CMS software is not only a means of publishing content on the websites, they are used to manage and control business processes. A well designed and developed CMS can streamline the entire workflow of your organization.

A major advantage of using a CMS is that they are somewhat intuitive and require almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. You can update your website as easily as editing an email, or using a word processing application.

WordpressMystique Brand Communications develops websites using the top open-source Content Management Systems… WordPress and Joomla. Both are open-source software, each developed and maintained by a community of thousands. Not only are both free to download and use, but the open-source format means that the platform is continuously being improved to support new Internet technologies. With both of these systems, basic functions can be enhanced without limit and include an ever-expanding array of add-ons, contributed from their respective communities.

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution; the proper CMS depends on your goals, technical expertise, budget and what you need your site to do. For a simple blog or brochure-type site, WordPress could be the best choice (while very friendly for non-developers, it’s a flexible platform also capable of very complex sites). For a complex, highly customized site requiring scalability, community building, or complex content organization, Joomla might be the best choice.

The more time and effort you are willing and able to invest into learning a system, the more it will be able to do for you. With both WordPress and Joomla, you can order a wide range of services and options off the menu to suit your needs.
