Companies turn to Lelander when they need to rely on an experienced software development team for custom CMS development solutions that help them manage their complex needs.
What is a CMS Website?
First, it’s helpful to have a working definition. A web content management system (CMS) is any software that can help organizations stay on top of content creation. Simply put, it’s a framework for managing digital content. With the world increasingly dependent on content, a CMS allows website owners to add, manipulate, and edit their ideas without having to nerd out and learn code. Anyone can do it. And, like any good technology, that is incredibly freeing.
Custom CMS Solutions
A website is supposed to work for you, not against you. So what good is having one if it takes a lifetime to update? Organizations need the flexibility to update content when and where they want. And do it without violating a template or causing the design team to lose their marbles. This is why choosing the right content management system (CMS) and development team is critical.
If you’re familiar with CMS’s, you probably know about the big kid on the block: WordPress. The go-to for everyone from mommy bloggers to globally recognized brands, it has become the most popular CMS on the planet. Powering millions of websites, it’s an open-source solution that has completely democratized the sharing of content.
Of course, that doesn’t stop other CMS’s from popping up and getting in on the action. Today, there are literally hundreds of options to choose from. Which can present a different set of challenges. Starting with security. Some CMSs are more secure than others (I’m looking at you, WordPress). Some are so fully featured, they throw in the kitchen sink. Others are lean and mean and only give you a few features. Do you need your CMS to do a little or a lot? And if your needs are super specific, it might be useful to build your own CMS.
Whether WordPress CMS development fits the bill, or we find that your needs require considering other content management options such as:
