Content Management Systems (CMS)
Boss Digital works with a wide range of open-source Content Management Systems (CMS) that can provide tailored solutions for your company to fulfill your business needs.
What is an Open-Source CMS
Open Source CMS (Content Management Systems) are for your website content what Linux is for your PC, OpenOffice for your word processor application or Mozilla Firefox for your internet browsing – a free and secure alternative that is successfully used by millions of users around the world.
Open source in general can be described as an approach to the design, development, and distribution of software, offering practical accessibility to a software’s source code for everybody.
That means for you that with an Open Source Web CMS (Content Management Systems) there are no licensing costs, no proprietary vendor lock-in (like Microsoft products, for example) and a big support community.
Why use an Open Source CMS?
Compared to traditional proprietary Web CMS (Content Management Systems) software, Open Source CMS Systems have the following key advantages.
There are no upfront or ongoing licensing costs for using an Open Source Web CMS Systems. This is a large cost saving when compared to proprietary Web CMS systems. It is also cheaper to develop a website using an Open Source CMS (Content Management Systems) because there are thousands of components that can be integrated into your site for a fraction of the cost of developing one from scratch. This is one of the key advantage of using an Open Source CMS.
Increased security and transparency
Because the code of an Open Source CMS is publicly available, the software is generally more secure and reliable than many proprietary commercial systems. This is because thousands and thousands of developers and professional work and review the code and eliminate any problems as soon as they appear.
The code transparency also means that Open Source CMS are generally easier to customize to your specific needs and easier to integrate with existing software systems and infrastructure through the use of open industry standards (such as XML, SOAP, LDAP etc).
All of the popular Open Source CMS have a broad international user and developer base that enables you to quickly receive support in case of common problems through the community. In case you are not happy with the support of your web developers, it is easy to switch to another company when using Open Source CMS, allowing you to minimise risk by reducing your dependency on the one vendor.
