The Debate

One of the big debates lately regarding comparisons with Joomla! CMS, Drupal and WordPress is; Which works best for Government web sites? Well there is not really a definitive answer since each of these tools has their place and you should carefully consider the dynamics of the client and use of the system to determine this. However, since we have worked with all three systems and overwhelmingly prefer Joomla! as the solution we most often recommend to our customers, I wanted to share a list of Governments around the world that are committed to using the Joomla! CMS solution. http://docs.joomla.org/Government_Websites_Using_Joomla

This list is still incomplete since it is rather hard to track but it does give a pretty good slice of types of Government organizations using Joomla right now all around the world and I think the pendulum is leaning very heavy towards Joomla as a solution that Government agencies can use with the greatest easy and confidence. With over 7000+ extensions, a global development community and an open source architecture the flexibility and capabilities are simply unmatched.

Getting off the fence

While there are many organizations currently using the Joomla platform there are many still on the fence in exploration phase wondering how they can get started. Moreover, since committing to any new system in a Government agency is often a lengthy process.  Adopters want to make sure this is not only a solid platform but also that it will be around and supported over the lifetime of its intended use. They often wonder how to deploy a Joomla system that meets all of their technical and user specifications and how can they bridge any change management required to roll this out with the best possible stakeholder and user adoption.

All of these elements have been carefully considered by the CNP Integrations team which specializes in building, configuring and maintaining Joomla! CMS solutions.
