Magento and CMS: Magento Integration with CMS

Content Management systems have become a standard in effective website content management over the years. This is because CMS’s take the fuss out of managing and maintaining the content and structure of a website. Going back 10 years ago, the term CMS was mainly heard of only in medium to large corporate environments who were early adaptors to the Internet and the use of such systems to manage their websites. These were mainly used by those organizations who could afford the costs of implementing propriety CMS systems to manage their website presence and that usually came at an astronomical cost.

However, in contrast, today mainly through the growth and popularity of Open Source CMS (Content Management Systems), the term has become very familiar with even the smallest organizations or individuals requiring an efficient and clean way of managing their own website content. Many companies are now using a CMS, which they either maintain internally through their IT department, or with the help of tparird party organizations such as web host companies, website development companies and the likes.

Open Source content management systems such as Typo3, Drupal and Joomla have become very poplar over the years as they deliver a very powerful and effective website presence at a fraction of the cost and such experienced companies can leverage these systems to deliver content managed websites for clients.

While CMS makes it extremely easy for the user to manage and maintain their website, it doesn’t detract from the fact that they are highly technical and rather complex website systems, requiring programming, implementation, template and system integration, custom development, hosting, patching, upgrades, maintenance and support. These requirements will either surface immediately, in the mid to long term as natural technological issues arise or as companies decide to modify or enhance their website presence.

Once implemented, a CMS becomes the operating platform for the website and its upkeep, thus maintenance and performance is critical. For this reason, when companies decide to add ecommerce functionality to their website, it is important that the ecommerce platform can integrate with the CMS. Like wise when a company decides to add a CMS to its eCommerce website, it is critical that the eCommerce system powering the website is able to properly integrate offering a seamless process between the eCommerce functions and the website content.
