    What's Scalable for You?

    So how do you choose which is right for your company? While Sareen personally believes that open source solutions are more agile, and thus, better suited to keeping speed with your business' future goals, a number of closed source solutions come with high remarks from their clients. It all comes down to what you want your web capabilities to be from the get-go, how much of a technical staff you plan to have on your payroll (if you want to develop your own site with an open source platform, for instance), and whether you're willing to pay the licensing fees that come with a closed source solution.

When people think of CMS (content management system) implementation, three words typically come to mind: web development tool. And while this definition, strictly speaking, isn't entirely out of bounds, Himanshu Sareen, CEO at Icreon Tech, suggests thinking of CMS platforms as tools that help businesses develop their overall digital experiences. Whether you're a customer-facing entity in the retail industry, a blogger with a million monthly readers, or are operating an e-learning company that's focused on educating the employees of enterprise-level companies — you need a CMS that's not only capable of handling every aspect of your business, but that's capable of creating a great experience for your end users, whoever they are.

In today's business world, it goes without saying that you need a website, but it's the sheer abundance of .com entities that often causes entrepreneurs and businesses to overlook the importance of choosing and implementing a CMS correctly. In a world where almost everyone has a website, one CMS should be as good as the next, right? Wrong. And it's in that spirit that Sareen would like to discuss the three things that any entrepreneur or decision maker should know when selecting and implementing a CMS.
