Selecting the CMS strategy is part of the complex decision process of IT managers and developers to ensure the best customer experience. While organizations should evaluate the CMS for scalability, flexibility, high performance and user-friendly features and also should reflect your objectives, goals and requirements.     

Here is a list of 10 things you should consider when selecting the right CMS:

1. Usability

When choosing a content management system (CMS), be sure to define the functionality requirements and allow third party add-ons to serve your needs. Every company may have varied requirements, for instance if the website should seek support for documents, images, video, blogs, chat, forum, comments, payment gateway and social media.

2. Free & Open Source

Popular open source CMSes such as Drupal, Wordpress or Joomla has a huge community and powers a wide range of sites, from blogging to high-profile sites. Check for CMSes which are affordable and free of licensing costs and greater freedom to customize. Popular CMS such as Drupal has a large active community of Drupal developers providing support to develop the CMS.

3. Simplicity & Ease-of-use

Don’t overlook systems that offer an array of features and functionality, but non-geeks may find it very complex to handle. Look for CMS software even non-technical users without programming knowledge can add or remove features without the help of developers.

4. Customization

The best approach to use the CMS framework is to build from the ground up. Drupal, for instance, offers highly customizable and scalable modules to meet the unique requirements of your business.

5. Modules & Themes

When your organization is expanding fast and need more functionality to augment your business, the CMS should be extensible in some manner. The CMS should have the ability to add extra modules or plugins to support additional features is an important consideration.     

6. Scalability & Performance

After ensuring that the CMS delivers all your needs, please check that the CMS deployments is refactored for scalability and high performance to support all your current and future needs. The CMS should have the capabilities to store and process a large number of requests at high speed.

7. Integration

Some organizations may have processes for different business verticals and they don’t integrate effectively. It should extremely important to consider a CMS with capabilities for seamless integration with your existing system or third-party applications.

8. Search engine friendly

Search engine optimization is an important aspect of any website and when selecting a CMS please look for a search engine friendly CMS which ranks high on Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.

9. Social Media & Online Communities

Adding social media is a must-have feature for any website nowadays. Ensure that the CMS provides built-in support or through third party plugins for sharing of content on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, LinkedIn, etc. as well as building your own online community for improving user engagement.

10. Mobile-ready

Ensure that the CMS supports multiple mobile platforms and operating systems. Building a responsive web design to optimize content for desktop, laptop and mobile devices such as iOS, Android, etc.
