Overall Satisfaction with Joomla!

We use Joomla! internally and externally on behalf of Fortune 50 to entrepreneurial firms. Joomla! addresses simplified management, great flexibility, and proper model–view–controller (MVC) development. With these tools, the least technical users in an organization can make significant content contributions, and developers are able to leverage a robust platform for significant customization with minimal distraction. Additionally, Joomla! is the first open source content management system (CMS) to be mobile ready and responsive utilizing Twitter's bootstrap framework. Out of the box Joomla! is ready to deliver.
  • Built-in and built-upon a mobile ready framework
  • Easy to utilize content creation
  • Model–view–controller (MVC) framework for highly customizable web applications
  • Powerful and detailed access control could be more intuitive
  • Speed to deployment
  • Flexibility to integrate new features/solutions
  • Increased performance of employees with workflow
  • WordPress,Drupal,ExpressionEngine,DNN
We utilize Joomla! because it is open source, has one of the largest open source communities, and is flexible across all types and sizes of business environments. Joomla! also provides steady security updates which are installable from within the CMS (WordPress has been failing here) as well as provides seamless upgrade paths from older versions (the Drupal 8 migrations will be complete rebuilds if customers choose to go that route).
Joomla! does not require a full-time developer on staff to manage it day-to-day. If evaluating other content management systems, the question to ask is whether you have in-house resources to support a different CMS.
