There are a variety of content management systems that are of varying degrees of difficulty to build and maintain. Ultimately, the CMS you choose should fit your current needs, but reserve the ability to scale to a growing business. Its scalability is an excellent barometer for a good CMS. If it can't grow with your possible future, it's not worth it to invest the time.
The top CMS systems are Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress. WordPress, which has been the most widely used blogging software, has advanced as a leader in content management systems. Sites built on the WordPress platform just about equal the sites made with Joomla, Drupal and others combined. WordPress makes updating content a breeze, and its sheer volume on the market makes it a leading platform for developers. That means more apps and excellent support.
The back end of WordPress, the Dashboard, is intuitive and easy to understand. Since part of the idea behind a CMS is easy updating for the site owner and the ability to free yourself from a web designer, this is a big plus in the CMS world. While Joomla and Drupal are excellent content management systems, the WordPress user interface remains the easiest to understand.
We can create a customized CMS website using WordPress that will do everything you want it to do - from a simple blog to an eCommerce site - styled as custom as you like and with an administrative back end that doesn't require a degree in computer science to understand.
