Your website is the reflection of your business. Your opportunities depend upon how much reach you have to your present and future customers, with new contents and newer offerings, becoming available to you as the demand increases. Does your website convey these to your customers? Are you being able to create new opportunities? For your business to grow, it would need more than spreadsheet applications to integrate within and with the competition outside.
It has been a practice so long to take those painful steps to update your website contents, since it had to be done by the skilled people in your organisation. At times, you could not keep up, missing on those opportunities making your business lag behind. Suddenly you find you do not have that skill available in-house and your website still goes on without any update of information or announcements of your new products. Your business fails you miserably. You need an immediate solution.
What you need is a custom built Content Management System (CMS), which will let you meet head-on with your ever changing business environment. You need a CMS built exactly to your need and providing you with features of expansion, supporting the technologies that enable the evolutionary life cycle of the digital information in your website. To meet the challenge, the information in your website need to be updated, edited and even changed. Your website should be integrated not only within your business operation, but between businesses, while creating more meaningful opportunities in having connectivity with your partners. There would be requirements for adding new product announcements, or change the prices that you offered previously. These operations would be done without having the specific skill of programming, by your own in-house people.
If you have several intranet as well as internet websites, using different platforms and technologies and you are looking at the possibility to consolidate into a single platform solution, a customer frame-work may provide you with the application that you are looking for. The frame-work may provide such services, where-by you can create and manage content, establish role-based security and searching. The biggest hurdle one may find in such typical application, is to custom build a CMS as a single solution that would be used to develop intranet and internet websites and interface with third party products. The benefit from such a solution is the standarisation achieved in creation of the websites using a single platform. This custom built frame-work could be built utilising the industry-defined practices, including the existing design patters,
Every website has its own requirements which cannot, perhaps, be met by a pre-built CMS. What you need is a system which allows you to conceive a planned structure of the content of your website, created through a dynamic information store available in a CMS. In ideal circumstances, the CMS should allow you to define your meta-data fields and provide the features of configuring complex database structures, enabling you to manage the structured data with ease. You can have all these without any custom programming. In facilitating the content management process and to have the benefit of having easier scalability and up-gradation of your website, you need a CMS, which offers you these features and more.
The CMS that you choose should have the feature to be upgraded to any level, from the basic to advance, having flexibility to add any types of module. The CMS would be 100% coded and customizable and unique to your application. Custom CMS should be chosen when it is found to be an efficient proposal to enter and display information using a database and where third party solutions are not enough cost-effective to meet your requirement. Such custom built modules would integrate with your system seamlessly and could be used with most other content management methods.
