This article covers how open-source and cross-compatible CMS platforms are a great decision for both a programming novice and a computer science expert.
CMS enables users to readily develop websites by mere drag-and-drop or by simply configuring the ready-made templates.
The platform enables the experts to catch the bugs or flaws and then contribute to the development of the platform and enhance its extensive capabilities and extensions.
The listed CMS platforms are all one of the best currently available CMS, and so whichever platform is adopted by the user, can surely yield the utmost results.
However, the decision of selecting the CMS platform greatly depends on the nature of the desired project.
We see that many CMS platforms, to some extent, limit their capabilities for the development of large-scale projects. Therefore, for small to medium-sized enterprise solution websites, all the CMS platforms, i.e., WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, WikiSuite, and Grav can provide excellent outcomes and can offer almost every user-required feature.
Nevertheless, the ever-evolving and growing CMS communities are adding to the extensive functionalities and features of the CMS platforms every day thereby assuring their reliability, efficiency, and security.
Therefore, the day when these CMS platforms will be able to support large-scale enterprise software solutions is most definitely, not far.
