Make the Right Choice
A content management system (CMS) is a computer application that allows publishing, editing and modifying content, organizing, deleting as well as maintenance from a central interface.
At Garrant Consulting, we can integrate a content management system into your website to allow you to easily keep your website updated.
When it comes to choosing the right CMS, it is important you understand the differences between products so that you an choose the best one for your website.
WordPress is the world's most popular free open source CMS, but with that comes this alarming fact...according to Smashing Magazine:
"Last year, WordPress was responsible for 83% of infected content management sites."
We do not recommend, nor will we work with WordPress on a commercial website project. Why risk being hacked and compromising your visitor and website data? We advise clients to choose a more secure solution such as Statamic or Craft.
Statamic is commercial, flat file CMS that cuts the database out of the equation. Without a database, Statamic allows you to quickly build, manage, and version control beautifully creative websites. Statamic includes just about any feature you can image out of the box such as a form manager, asset manager, extensive fieldtypes and user permission controls. You can learn more about Statamic at https://statamic.com.
Craft is a commercial content management system, and the feature set out-of-the-box is amazing and you will rarely need to buy any additional plugins. Craft gives you the tools to build an inviting and intuitive publishing experience that you will actually enjoy using. You can learn more about Craft at https://craftcms.com.
ExpressionEngine is a commercial content management system that we have used on many websites over the past few years. It is mature, very secure and has a great selection of plugins available. The beauty of ExpressionEngine is the fact that pretty much any function you could ever need either is built in or already has a plugin developed. ExpressionEngine projects typically will require a few commercial plugins so it can get a bit costly when compared to Craft. You can learn more about ExpressionEngine at https://expressionengine.com.
