What is Content Management System (CMS)?

A content management system (CMS) is computer software that is used to create, manage and modify digital content. Most often, the term CMS is associated with website content like webpages, images and blog posts. There are numerous different content management systems on the market, but some of the most common today include WordPress, Shopify, Joomla or SquareSpace.

Content Management Systems We Know

At NextLeft, we can work with any content management system. That said, some of the most common CMS’s we work with include:


As the name implies, BigCommerce is used for online eCommerce stores. Similar to shopify, it is an out of the box solution with some levels of customization.


Drupal is a common CMS for enterprise clients. It is very customizable via modules but requires the need of a development resource for most changes.


Magento is a CMS for large eCommerce clients. Although it is fully customizable via extensions, it is resource development heavy.


Shopify is one of the most common content management systems on the market today for eCommerce websites. It is a great out of the box solution but it does come with some canonicalization quirks and does not allow for certain customizations.


WordPress is the most common CMS on the market, boasting over a 60% market share. It is highly customizable via plug-ins and most edits can be accomplished without the help of a development resource.

Why is the Right CMS Important?

Picking the right CMS for your business depends on the type of website you want to create. You will want to pick a CMS that fits your needs. For example, using Shopify for a non eCommerce website is probably not the best option for your business.

With so many options on the market, ensure that you have the right CMS for your business, budget, and needs!

Customization – If you want a custom look or functionality, you will want a CMS that allows for that. If you do not have a development resource, you will likely want an out of the box solution that is more user friendly.

Price – Depending on the size of your business, price may be a very important factor. There are lower cost options like SquareSpace or WordPress versus a CMS like Magento or Drupal which will be much more expensive.
