A good CMS doesn't have to be Expensive

ZURICH, July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Open-Source-Solutions continue to dominate the market, with innovative and modern applications standing out.  However, in an era of growing complexity and rising costs good CMS systems do not need to be expensive. There are a growing number of solutions that are both free and extendable for businesses of all sizes.

In the last ten years the dependency on and demand for, good CMS solutions has increased significantly. This is not only restricted to the complexity of the content and services but the necessity for a strong online presence. The ability for a business to easily extend its E-commerce, analytics or Social Media has become significantly more important. A CMS should thus be a system that allows everyday users to not only edit web pages but enable them to integrate it with other business software, be fully customisable and offer a greater level of flexibility. This has pushed providers to new heights and demand is showing no signs of let up.

Improved Performance with flexible CMS solutions

"The market demands solutions that companies can grow with, allowing them to quickly and easily integrate contemporary standards like blogs or shop solutions", Christian Bertschy, CEO of Divio AG in Zurich, explains. The easy and effortless incorporation of complex data sources is a core argument for the "django CMS", an originally internal project, founded and developed by Divio AG.

One of the key benefits of the Open-Source-System is its modular page structure. As a standard, "django CMS" requires only one to two HTML templates where so-called placeholders are defined, for example for the content or the header. These placeholders are filled with elements, which in turn can contain texts, videos, pictures or other content. Such a structure not only makes a website flexible, but companies can also integrate additional functionality on to their site without support of an external partner.

Open source for large and small companies

Besides the free availability of the system the advantage of the modular page structure promotes cost savings especially for smaller enterprises. Other benefits include a capacity for a multilingual setup and permission management features that can adhere to the needs of both small and large companies alike. Until recently recognised mainly as an insiders tip, now more and more major companies such as Orange, Mercedes-Benz and National Geographic are turning to open source solutions. The CMS has been downloaded over 200,000 times and is now rated amongst the top open source solutions in the Enterprise-CMS-Market.
