Comparison of Content Management Systems

Drupal
Joomla
WordPress Websites
Ease of Use Drupal requires the most technical expertise of all other open source platforms to build websites and manage content. If you’re unable to commit to learning the software or don’t want to hire a developer every time you need to add content or modify the site, it may not be the best choice. Joomla is less complex than Drupal, and more complex than WordPress. Relatively easy installation and setup. With a relatively small investment of effort into understanding Joomla’s structure and terminology, you have the ability to create fairly complex sites. Technical experience is not necessary to manage or update a WordPress site. WordPress is intuitive and very easy to use for both developers and novices alike.
Features Drupal is known for its powerful taxonomy and ability to tag, categorize and organize complex content after significant development and setup. Joomla! was designed to perform as a community platform, with strong social networking features. Powerful enough to support complex site architecture and functionality; then clients can take over site management with minimal instruction. WordPress is well known for its extensive selection of plugins and themes. It is very user friendly with great support and tutorials, making it ideal for non-technical users to quickly deploy new pages or update existing content.
Security All open source content management systems are reasonably secure out of the box, and can be configured to address nearly any level of security concern.

All open source content management systems are reasonably secure out of the box, and can be configured to address nearly any level of security concern.
Best Use Cases For complex sites that will likely already require ongoing development support; for sites that require complex data organization; for community platform sites with multiple users and complicated workflow.

Sites with a high level of structure flexibility. Joomla often referred to as the “middle of the road” solution for individuals with intermediate website or coding skills. Supports social networking.

Ideal for most websites, such as everyday blogging, news and small business sites; also a strong choice for anyone looking for an easy-to-manage site. Customization capability and plugin integration make it easy to expand functionality for nearly any project.

Why Choose WordPress Websites?

A successful WordPress website should look great and be easy to maintain.

We build full-featured, responsive, search-engine optimized websites with WordPress. WordPress makes updating a website as easy as a Word document.

WordPress websites will give you the ability to update the various pages of your website such as news items, case studies, FAQs and any other types of content on your website. After launching your custom website, the WordPress platform empowers website owners to easily manage and maintain their own websites.
In addition to the freedom from licensing costs and restrictions, with WordPress, you get full access to the source code. This means that Excelisys developers can customize your site, adding nearly any features or functionality to WordPress, free from the restrictions of proprietary code or incompatible technologies.
Many web development companies provide “in-house content management systems.” These closed-source, proprietary solutions lock website owners in to using a specific company to edit, update and host their website–or to address important security vulnerabilities. WordPress, on the other hand, is a popular, open-source platform that millions of business websites use every day. As a result, millions of developers roll out new plugins, features and security updates every day that website owners can benefit from.
WordPress is constantly being updated and maintained. Developers all over the world are contributing to its continual improvement–all the time. WordPress is already a great platform, and it’s getting even better every day.
As well as a scalable platform for large, sophisticated websites, WordPress is great for piecing together early “proof-of-concept” versions of a website. Startups and small business owners can efficiently curate themes/plugins/functionality to get their businesses up and running quickly, scaling their sites as their businesses grow.
In the event your company grows and needs more server resources, or you decide to upgrade your brand with a new domain name, WordPress allows website owners to easily export their data in a format that is widely used and straightforward. A lack of data portability can prove to be a costly oversight years after your website launches.
WordPress is surprisingly easy to update for security and new functionality. When new versions are available (which are always free by the way), WordPress will give you a notification saying so. This also goes for plugins. When something needs updating on your website, WordPress will let you know and you can easily update everything in a few clicks.
Even right off the shelf, WordPress provides a variety of built-in SEO benefits that help establish a competitive advantage for your company over the thousands of other websites in your niche. The core WordPress platform is thoughtfully built with clean code, and is designed to promote your website content to search engines–automatically.
