Abstract: The paper intents to present the advantages of using open source Content Management System (CMS) software in designing and administrating Web sites, from the simplest to the most complex ones, by employing basic and advanced features of the CMS Joomla and CMS Made Simple, systems that tend to deliver the same functional features as the commercial systems, for a much lower basic cost. By comparing these two CMS instruments, we wish to explain the concept of Content Management System, and also to present some basic notions that might guide users in choosing the optimal solutions, both technically and financially, for Web project implementation..
Keywords: CMS, Joomla, CMS Made Simple, content management, WCMS, workflow, data warehouse.
