We have selected the Joomla content management system as our preferred platform on which to build websites with rich and powerful functionality.
Joomla is an award-winning content management
system (CMS), which enables us to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.
What's a content management system (CMS)?
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.
The Joomla core is just the beginning, the real power is in the way you can customize Joomla. More then 8,000 extensions are available, mostly free or at very low cost, to extend your website and broaden it's funcionality.
