Content Management System (CMS) Solutions:

DWDG specializes in developing fully customized database driven Content Management Systems (CMS) that increase the life-span and dynamic nature of the website. With a dynamic Content Management Solution in place, our clients are not looking at a static website but are able to manage and increase the content on their site. For instance, a CMS solution sets our client to independently manage and expand their project portfolios, upload newsletters to their website, and edit and manage their text and image content:

The database solution can also be designed to enhance the user-experience of the website for instance by developing the website with Search Features, Customer Login Areas, and Member areas with dynamic member pages. Below is a list of a variety of dynamic features that can be tied into a database for easy controls by the administrator of the website:

We use Joomla! which is an open source content management system platform for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets as well as a Model–view–controller (MVC) Web application framework. It is written in PHP, stores data in MySQL and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, polls, search, and support for language internationalization

Features: The Joomla! package consists of many different parts, which allow modular extensions and integrations to be made easily. An example of such are extensions called "Plugins".(Previously known as "Mambots".) Plugins are background extensions that extend Joomla! with new functionality. The WikiBot, for example, allows the author of Joomla! content to use "Wikitags" in Joomla! articles which will auto-create dynamic hyperlinks to Wikipedia articles when displayed.

There are over 3,000 extensions for Joomla! available via the Extensions Directory.

In addition to Plugins, more comprehensive extensions are available. "Components" allow webmasters to perform such tasks as build a community by expanding user features, backup a website, translate content, create URLs that are more friendly to search engines and add shopping cart functionality for e-commerce website."Modules" perform such tasks as displaying a calendar or allowing custom code like Google AdSense etc., to be inserted within the base Joomla! code.

Joomla! permits administrators to set global configuration parameters that affect every article.Every page conforms to these parameters by default, but a page can have its own setting for each parameter. For example, you can select to show or hide the article author or simply go with the global "show author" parameter.

Content Management System (CMS) Solutions:

A Content Management System (CMS) is a collection of procedures used to manage work flow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual or computer-based. The procedures are designed to:

codeAllow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data

codeControl access to data, based on user roles. User roles define what information each user can view or edit

codeAid in easy storage and retrieval of data

codeReduce repetitive duplicate input

codeImprove the ease of report writing

codeImprove communication between users

In a CMS, data can be defined as almost anything - documents, movies, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, etc. CMSs are frequently used for storing, controlling, revising, semantically enriching, and publishing documentation. Content that is controlled is industry-specific. For example, entertainment content differs from the design documents for a fighter jet. There are various terms for systems (related processes) that do this. Examples include: Web Content Management, Digital Asset Management, Digital Records Management, Electronic Content Management (and others). Synchronization of intermediate steps, and collation into a final product are common goals of each.
