The Leading Open Source CMS Platforms on the Market
Umbraco is an open source content management system (CMS) that utilizes the Microsoft.NET platform. It provides users with all the great functionality they expect from a CMS without the hefty licence fees. The platform has proven to be one of the best CMS options due to its unlimited functionality and customizability. Developer-friendly, Umbraco is flexible, which is why many of the largest brands in the world run their websites on Umbraco.
Simple, Flexible Layouts,
WordPress is the most popular CMS currently in use. While originally conceived as a tool for blogging, it has since expanded due to its ease of use and extensive library of plugin support. It’s also extraordinarily effective for SEO because of its simplified layout and webcrawler-friendly structure. While it isn’t as customizable as Umbraco, it has an active community of developers generating new functionality all the time.
The Right Platform for Your Needs
Our goal is to empower our clients to have complete control over their content, even after our involvement with a project has ended. While both Umbraco and WordPress are powerful systems with several distinct advantages, they’re not equally appropriate for all types of projects. Further, each client is unique, and some needs lend themselves to one solution over another. Concerns like security, access to internal development resources, performance and speed, and budget constraints all come into play. At Station Four, we want to make sure our clients have a full understanding of the pros and cons of each platform before making a selection. While we have particular expertise in these two platforms, we also have significant experience in Joomla, Drupal, Dot Net Nuke, SharePoint, Expression Engine, and others.
