Choosing a CMS
If you’re considering using a content management system (CMS) to revamp your online presence, the first and often most daunting challenge is selecting the right one – after all it involves a substantial investment in resources, and it will have far reaching implications for your business for years to come. Finding the right system could end up saving you development time and money, improving staff productivity, and ultimately help you to create a compelling and engaging website that can evolve with your organisation.
There are an overwhelming number of options available, including proprietary and open source packages, all with different features to compare and contrast. It’s not as easy as saying “choose Sitecore for ‘x’ and Umbraco for ‘y’”.
Business and user objectives
Instead of looking at what they have to offer, and being drawn into the latest new feature you may not need, your first steps should be all about what you want to achieve. By carefully considering business requirements, influenced by the various stakeholders involved in the project, you’ll be in an excellent position to evaluate the options and find a system that ticks all the boxes.
