CMS Trends in 2017

Content Management Systems (CMS) have become an integral part of website development. Businesses and marketing departments have begun understanding the importance of Enterprise Resource Planning and Customer Relationship Management.

CMS is an application that can be used by organizations to create and modify digital data in a collaborative environment. It is primarily used for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Web Content Management (WCM). ECM mostly deals with collaboration in the workplace whereas WCM is about cooperative creation of website content.

A CMS has two pieces: a Content Management Application (CMA) which is a GUI that allows the creation of content and a Content Delivery Application (CDA) which deals with the delivery of the content.

Latest Trends in CMS

  • Aside from the monolith approach being followed now, CMS systems may extend as a microservice architecture by splitting the current CMS platform into independent pieces that are interchangeable. This provides benefits like quick delivery to market and less risky upgrade of older features.

  • Next is the decoupling of CMS from the rendering and presentation. This allows web developer dubai to create a variety of user experiences without having to deal with a separate CMS for each. In this way, numerous front-ends can be generated with the same content.

  • Presenting the relevant content for a search made by a user is tough, but a key task. In 2017, we can expect a Google-like search experience from CMS systems by using cloud search services like Azure Search.

  • The CMS platforms promise many customer support services, but practically none of them can be compared with the expert services provided by main players like Intercom. It is also difficult to maintain and offers only a small portion of the assured services. In recent years, we expect CMS to incorporate the specialist services of industry leaders.

  • Security services to be offered by any platform are more complex than simple password hashing and data encryption, considering today’s business. Thus CMS is expected to include features like authentication without requiring a password or provision to detect password breaches. Many specialist service packages are available which can be integrated into CMS to help it ensure better security.

  • With machine learning becoming the new drift, CMS can be better off by using this with the features that it provides like content rating or content suggestion. For example, when content suggestion now uses browsing history to offer suggestions, machine learning it can get information like browsing habits during different times of the day.

By the end of the year, we expect to see a lot more changes to the CMS platform. For further queries, contact us. As a popular web development agency dubai, we will be happy to help.
