Business and personal content of all forms needs to be generated, gathered, stratified, indexed, presented and searched. Amongst the wide variety of technologies available to support the business in this task, open source search and content management systems have showN themselves to be superior in many ways to their proprietary counterparts, largely because of their web standards compliance and low cost accessible nature, making the job of creating and managing text, picture and video content, so much easier, removng the cost barriers for content creation. This success has prompted calls for all public sector websites to be migrated to open source platforms.
Examples of leading open source CMS platforms are Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress and Plone. Take a look here for the google trends search comparison for an illustration of popularity.
A typical content management challenge would be to present the full range of company products, services and access points in an attractive manner.
