THE MOST UTILIZED CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WORLDWIDE
Standardizing on one content management system (CMS) platform simplifies management and control while reducing the cost of maintenance and growing internal capability for better leveraging systems. So what if a decision has been made to standardize on WordPress in your organization? There are various considerations and concerns when standardizing on WordPress for use in the Enterprise Application Portfolio.
While WordPress started as just a blogging system, it has evolved into a full content management system. WordPress is not a compromise. Since its inception in 2001, it has become the standard tool for managing content on the web largely because it is free, open source, relatively easy to install and as a result has a large ecosystem surrounding it.
In 2012, it was estimated that over 58 million web sites were powered using WordPress with 19,000 plug-ins freely available in the WordPress Plug-In Directory. In 2016 we estimate that closer to 300 million web sites are running on WordPress with over 42,000 plug-ins available.
