Wordpress-Vs-Drupal-Vs-JoomlaCMS Comparison: Joomla, Drupal and WordPress

CMS Comparison: Joomla, Drupal and WordPress

While a large percentage of CMS websites are developed on WordPress  it’s not the only open source content management system in the market. There are some other really awesome software like Joomla and Drupal.  All three of them have a lot in common, but they still have their own pros and cons.

Here are few of the main differences between webpages built in Joomla, WordPress and Drupal:

WordPress:

It is all loved by everyone for its incredible features. You can change and adjust everything in a WordPress which is a matter of great advantage to the users. It is popular, constantly improving and charismatic Iron Man. It is a leading CMS among others- the same as Iron Man in Avengers. It is a great preference for beginners and operates really healthy for small to medium sized websites, blogs and stores.

Joomla:

It is pretty easy to use the default templates, no way for a beginner to edit something in a back end. It is probably more complex than WordPress. It demands a lot more effort and time to get familiar with it. Batman is difficult to get along with and so is Joomla. It is best suited for e-commerce type of skills, but requires at least some level of technical coding.

Drupal:

A lot of not clear stuff inside and it is a no way for trainee to set up something fancy on it. It generally requires deep dive and too much time. It is even not much professional around. It is like a Superman, who is full of possible skills and powers. Drupal certainly not runs out of surprising, original options. It is so powerful you can do almost anything with it. It is indeed better to say that Drupal is a perfect choice for huge serious websites. It is the most difficult one among the three, but also the most powerful.

The Choice between WordPress, Drupal and Joomla necessarily depends on project’s requisites. If you need an agile development process and you have a low budget, maybe you should choose WordPress. If you need a more Powerful CMS, maybe you should pick Joomla. And if you want a full, customizable environment you should pick Drupal. Apart from that, we should also know that WordPress offers an easy control panel in to allow the clients to manage their websites more easily. Joomla offers a complex control panel while Drupal has a very complex control panel that a developer should change if he wants his clients could manage the website in an easy way.

Creating an Integrated Information Ecosystem

In order to meet business and compliance requirements, as well as to effectively serve the needs of customers, organizations must enable fast access to accurate and up-to-date information. Users need to be able to quickly locate the correct version of a document, or collections of documents, without wasting time searching through disconnected business systems and repositories. AIIM Research shows that having two or three systems and repositories is common (26%), while 43% cite four or more can be found in the largest
organizations.

In an ideal ECM environment, information is not tethered to a specific location – it resides within, and can be accessed and synced between, various systems and devices without duplication of content. As a result, information assets are freed from the confines of applications, platforms and information silos. Regardless of where it resides, users can quickly and easily find and use the information they need to help them make more informed decisions and provide greater value to customers. The ultimate goal is to create an
integrated information ecosystem where all business systems are interconnected in a way that users can capture, manage and access the information they need, when they need it.

Once core business systems are integrated with an ECM platform, users benefit from “content in context” that provides a personalized 360 degree view of other information related to what they are working on from a simple unified platform. This includes information that may be relevant to the employee’s task at hand. For example, a salesperson finalizing a customer proposal conducts a search in the ECM system to locate the most current version of the proposal document. However, since the ECM system is integrated with the CRM
application, the salesperson learns during this search that there is an open “issue resolution” request for the customer, and as a result, decides to wait to send the proposal until the issue is resolved.

How would you best characterize your organization’s experience with document management (DM), Records Management (RM) and Enterprise Content Management (ECM)?

While it is beneficial to integrate the back-end systems for information exchange, from the users’ perspective, it is irrelevant as to where the information came from, as long as it can be found when it is needed. This can be accomplished by leveraging metadata to create relationships between information objects in various business systems, which then enable more intelligent and accurate search capabilities that span the enterprise and relevant business applications.
