Web App Driven Content Management
Off-the-shelf content management systems have two downsides that require proper addressing:
1) Template based nature of the layout options for CMS websites
2) CMS software’s inability to integrate custom coded web applications.
If the content management system for a company website is developed on top of an existing blog template for instance, it is likely that the client is in fact not receiving a custom design but rather only a customized template. If a company is happy with the design and regards that it communicates their brand identity well, then this may be a very workable solution. Interaria points out that a company, however, does not need to accept design, layout or feature compromises that could be overcome with proper custom CMS application development.
The second limitation of using an off-the-shelf content management system is that it limits managing custom web applications which often turn out to be crucially important to a company website. The Interaria Web Development Framework exceeds these limitations by providing a data driven platform for developing advanced content management systems for managing user accounts, documents, product catalogs, and time sensitive events and promo listings.
The Interaria Web Development Framework is designed to develop CMS solutions for large websites with product catalogs, expiring promotions, news and events listings, member accounts, and document and article libraries. The Interaria Web Development Framework is a custom PHP/MySQL code library developed by the Interaria team for building database driven web applications that interact with a content management system.
Unlike many off-the-shelf CMS solutions, a content management system developed with the Interaria Web Development Framework will not hinder design choices, future website growth and the relational management of data variables.
James Shields, the founder and leading web developer for Dallas web design & development company Interaria states: "We are not against utilizing off-the-shelf CMS solutions such as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal for site CMS features and blogging functions where these systems are optimal and work best. The crucial point is that the Interaria’s development framework is flexible and does not tie a client to use any specific off-the-shelf CMS solution."
