ABSTRACT
The article focuses on advantages of open source content management systems. Open source software is free and must comply with the definition of the Open Source Initiative, which states that, among other things, modifications to the source code are nonproprietary and available to the developer community. Open source systems must be evaluated differently than commercial products. An important issue to consider is who the lead contributors are and their pedigrees. open source content management (CM) solutions focus on providing basic CM functionality via browser interfaces like templating and workflow and tend to eschew the value-added type such as Web analytics, though many integrate with such third-party packages.
