Is Umbraco the right CMS for your company?

Umbraco is one of the most commonly used content management systems (CMS) to deploy and manage sites. Umbraco currently has over 400,000 active sites worldwide.

Umbraco is a free, open source CMS. Here at Novicell, we have used Umbraco to create some of the most incredible solutions including a powerful web shop for Power, Denmark’s biggest online electronics store. The fact that Umbraco is open source is beneficial for us as it enables us to create the perfect solution for our customers tailored to their requirements. Umbraco being open source also means that it is continually updated and improved.

Regardless of the size of your website, Umbraco can accommodate it. Umbraco also offers Umbraco Cloud which is a fully managed hosting service tailored to Umbraco that integrates with Azure. So that was a little on Umbraco, its capabilities and the solutions we can create for you. We will now get into the specifics about what Umbraco as a CMS offers.

As mentioned earlier, Umbraco is an open source platform, so there are always constant upgrades and improvements being made to make the content management process more user-friendly and make life easier for content editors. There is an extensive community of Umbraco users and developers that work together to improve the platform, and Umbraco implements what the community desires.
