Content Management Systems are all very similar. Like cars, if you can drive one, you can drive almost all the rest. All content management systems attempt to make it easy-to-use for non-techies. We have worked with over a dozen.

Open Source, 3rd Party & Custom Content Management Systems

We specialize in creating content management systems that are:

  • Easy to use and manage
  • Easy to add, edit and delete content
  • Easy to upload content to multiple areas of your website
  • Scalable to fit your needs as a company (no CMS is too big or too small)

Here are some of the content management systems we have used in the past 20 years.

Sitefinity CMS is a content management system (CMS) that you use to create, store, manage, and present content on your website. Sitefinity CMS instance to manage multiple sites that can share content. I managed 8 website migrations for large association websites using this platform which is very popular among nonprofit organizations.

WIX is a content management system that is often advertised to small business owners under the guise that the CMS is super easy to use with pre-designed templates and this is true. The issue with WIX is that there is almost zero customer service help available to a customer. Also, Google rarely lists these sites high in the search engines results because it is JavaScript-based and Google does not read JavaScript very well.

Search engines find it difficult to show results from sites that use WIX since it is a JavaScript-based CMS. Often, experienced SEOs will refuse to work on WIX sites. I do not recommend it for companies that want to earn business through organic search results.

An open source content management system first popularized as a blogging platform. Wordpress has evolved into one of the most utilized content management systems for small business websites. Its open source status has allowed thousands of contributor to produce some of the best and easiest plugins for content management, e-commerce, mailing lists, testimonials, captcha applications and much more. Storiale Consulting Group has created several websites using WordPress including a realtor website for Mike Tootelian that made it to Google's first page, first result when searching "bucktown realtor." This listing made it to the top-spot in just 4 weeks.

This content management system was used by the Professional Education Institute for the carletonsheets website, which Lou Storiale managed in 2007. Joomla was used for the company website, e-commerce, blog, podcast, articles, and landing pages. Joomla is one of the most used content management systems in the United States.

One of the main competitors of Joomla, Drupal, is best known for its use in high-content websites and is used by many public libraries. Another open source platform, Drupal is seen as easier to use than Joomla by many critics. Drupal should be considered as a content management option for high-content websites only.

An up-and-coming content management system that began as a proprietary CMS, but was released as open source recently. SilverStripe was used on the Sonia Roselli website in 2010. SilverStipe is highly customizable and scalable. SilverStripe is the preferred out-of-the-box content management system by Storiale Consulting Group.

A learning management system used to produce almost every University online course from 1998-2007, WebCT was purchase by BlackBoard and remains one of the most utilized learning management systems in the U.S. Lou Storiale utilized this LMS for many of the online courses for the Pharmaceutical Education and Research Institute from 1999-2001.

Aqualogic Portals
AquaLogic comprised a software suite developed by BEA Systems for managing service-oriented architecture (SOA). Following the acquisition of BEA by Oracle Corporation in April 2008, most of the software have been renamed and the term AquaLogic is not used in any new Oracle product. However, this portal system was managed by Lou Storiale from 2007-2008 during his time with the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA). ALA used this system to operate and managed their member portal.

Known for its difficulty in customization, proprietary licensing and expensive updates, Lou Storiale created a plan to create a custom portal in 2008. ALA programmers launched a customized portal in 2010 which will save the organization hundreds of thousands of dollars in management and hosting fees over the next 5 years.
