Choosing a custom CMS vs. open source CMS is one of the most important decisions a business can make regarding its website. Content management systems are not one-size-fits-all technologies, and there is no "right" answer when selecting a custom or open source platform. To determine the best option for your business, first you must understand what each CMS alternative has to offer, and what your team needs from a CMS solution.

  • A custom CMS doesn't always mean proprietary
  • Depending on your needs a custom CMS may be needed or may not
  • Often a custom built solution may run quicker, if developed properly
  • A custom CMS is not recommended for a basic website
  • Typically enterprise level customers run customized CMS platforms
  •      For a basic website, Wordpress is usually a great solution
