AN EMPIRICAL STUDY OF POPULAR CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM - WORDPRESS VS DRUPAL VS JOOMLA

Abstract
In the modern world, the absence of a business website means loss of a significant share of the tentative market. A business website helps businesses become round the clock accessible to the world. In the past, website development required a significant amount of time, computing knowledge, and skills. Content Management System (CMS) is a new website creation toolkit to address these problems. A CMS converts the complex process of website development into a simple workflow. A CMS requires no prior knowledge/experience and significantly reduces the time of developing a website. Today, many CMS platforms are available for users. This increase in the number of CMS platforms has made it difficult for a user to choose the best one. The objective of this study is to provide a comprehensive comparison of the available CMS platforms. This study performs a comparison of the three most popular CMS platforms (i.e. WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal) using a comprehensive set of criteria. For this purpose, a convenient sample of 110 students from the Computer Science Department and Management Sciences Department was used. These students had used one or more of the CMS platforms to develop websites. The results reveal that WordPress is the dominating CMS platform due to its technical capabilities and ease of use.
