Why Joomla!?
Drastically simplified web design, development,
deployment, and maintenance
Pleasing look
A matter of personal taste. . .
Adding content or updating the design of your entire
web site is a snap.

The HTML Problem
HTML: hyper text markup language
Pages need to be programmed individually
Problems with consistency
You need specialists to maintain
Labor intensive = expensive
7
The CMS Solution
TIME, Newsweek, CNN:
Need to get huge amounts of content on the web
cheaply:
Use less specialized people
Use less time
CMS software provides a solution
CMS = Content Management System

Content Management Systems
Automate site content management
No knowledge of HTML required
Allows non-technical writers and journalists to contribute
articles directly into the system
Lower potential for problems or inconsistencies to be
introduced into the publishing process
