Content Management Systems

The Joomla and WordPress content management systems provide the basic structure for website development and maintenance and are good options for many business websites. Both are template-based systems that use a database to store and retrieve your content. Authoring tools allow users with little or no technical expertise to create and manage site content with relative ease.

Noesis Design Studio will design your website, create a customized template, and provide support (if needed) so you can administer and maintain your site. Because Joomla and WordPress are free open source products, you are charged only for the design, customization and support.

Additional information can be found in the Content Management Systems section of the Frequently Asked Questions page and on the Joomla and WordPress websites.

The Joomla Content Management System

Joomla is widely known for its professional features and ease of use. It is a good option for many organizations that need a customized website that can be administered and updated in-house.

Joomla has the power and flexibility to meet the needs of most organizations, and is in wide use by businesses of all sizes as well as nonprofit, educational, and public organizations worldwide. Nearly 7% of websites run on Joomla. It has a content management system market share of about 9%.

The WordPress Content Management System

WordPress is technically a blogging platform, but it has been gradually evolving into a full-fledged content management system that can be used to produce feature-rich websites.

WordPress is known for its flexibility and ease of use, but it lacks some of Joomla’s content management capabilities. It powers about 59% of websites, and dominates the content management system market with a share of about 70%.
