Is TYPO3 the right Web CMS for you?
TYPO3 can be used as a Content Management System for anything from simple company presentations to comprehensive websites. Whereby the real strengths of TYPO3 lie in the vast range of its available functions as well as its ability to take into account individual client requirements and blend fully into the architecture of the intended field of application.
Complex and comprehensive modern websites, involving integration into a company's existing IT architecture, cannot be efficiently run without a professional Enterprise Content Management System. This makes it all the more important to clearly define in advance whatever specific requirements are to be met in order to be sure of choosing the ideal and most appropriate CMS.
This is of particular importance when it comes to a TYPO3 system, because TYPO3 already offers a wide range of solutions and modules, with whose help you can keep almost all your bases out in the Web Content Management field securely covered. In addition, thanks to its framework construction, TYPO3 can be easily and seamlessly adapted to the prevailing IT culture, integrating into even the most varied structures.
TYPO3 is ideal for
- Major companies and groups
In the Enterprise field, TYPO3 profits from its immense functional range, meeting all the prerequisites of a full Enterprise Web CMS solution with seamless and breach-free integration into a firm’s existing IT infrastructure. Specific company requirements can be easily incorporated into the system without compromising its scalability or updating capacities.
- Medium-sized businesses and public services
For representation online, or to present a product range, companies can profit from a large number of existing TYPO3 solutions and functions. If any modifications or adaptations are needed, these can be easily implemented as TYPO3 program extensions.
- Small businesses and associations
TYPO3 is installed in a standard configuration, featuring the most common extensions. Individual adaptations will very seldomly be necessary here.
- Companies working with several online editors
The bigger and more complex a company, public authority or association is, and the more people it employs as online editors for its web presence, the more appropriate the installation of a TYPO3 Enterprise CMS becomes.
- Editors without HTML skills
Thanks to its intuitive user-interface, no particular experience is required for online editing in TYPO3. Anyone reasonably competent in MS Office will quickly be able to work with the system.
However, it should be noted that the differences involved in working with TYPO3 are considerably influenced by the number and hierarchy of editors responsible for website content, as well as the site’s connectivity with third-party systems such as warehouse inventory control systems, e-commercial solutions, ERP or DMS.
TYPO3 is not ideal for
- Creating and managing social community websites such as Facebook, Linkedin, social networking sites, local lists etc.,
- Websites based entirely on Flash,
- Purely e-commercial solutions, for which we offer the equally license-free OpenSource system Magento Commerce. If required, we can also realize a full integration of Magento Commerce into TYPO3.
