In short, our view is; if you are a developer or employ in house developers who intend to get ‘under the bonnet’ to tinker and modify with the code, then open source will most likely be the best solution. A commercial system typically denies developer access to the code.
However, if you want marketing people, and other non-technical people to manage the site and you don’t want the added expense and time delays with developers being involved, then a turn-key commercial CMS such as Contegro will probably provide the best solution.
Still not sure? – the points below outline some other considerations that should help you decide which option might work best for you.
So, we’ve discussed quite a few reasons now regarding the conceptual choice for your CMS. Whatever your initial preferences might be, our suggestion is always to ask the various providers to demo their CMS platforms to you. As it’s you who will be managing your site ongoing, does it present well? Does it look easy enough for you to use? Does it have the flexibility you want? Does it contain work flow options? Our advice is to ask as many questions as you can at the demo, don’t just sit back and allow yourself to be taken through the standard demo routine. Asking questions outside of the norm will really reveal how flexible the system is.
please contact us if you want any further help.
