Joomla has taken the web design industry with a storm. Joomla is one of the leading content management systems in the world. A content management system is a software that allows a website owner to update the website content themselves without prior web design or technical skills. Joomla has seen a steady increase in demand as organisations require websites that can be updated on a frequent basis.
Today it is a common practice for businesses to demand websites that can be updated in-house without specialist technical skills. Businesses today understand the importance of content on a website and its impact on search engine ranking. Businesses require complete control over the content on their website and require a system that will allow them to make regular updates. Joomla allows web design companies to meet this challenge by providing powerful content management capabilities to websites.
