Most News Sites use a CMS that has been developed a decade or more ago. Even though it’s obsolete and threatens to fall into pieces any minute, it’s extremely difficult to replace it. Introducing a new system is a complex project that consumes much energy, time and money. The process is hard to manage and the development company often forces solutions that aren’t really necessary.
Having a partner who deeply understands not only the CMS needs of media companies but has also 20 years of experience in the management process of introducing new web based systems is key to ensure that the project is streamlined and safe of unnecessary risks. We can help you define your requirements and bring in a CMS that will stand the test of time.
