Information and insight from the A&M Webmasters

CMS Use on Campus

February 10th, 2017 by Erick Beck

I posted this on the GoWeb site a few weeks ago, but since people have continued to ask about it I am repeating the information here.


Several years ago we did a survey of what content management systems were in use across campus.  After several years of change in this space we thought it would be good to see what those numbers look like now.

A trend of consolidation stands out.  Through self selection, the majority of us are naturally aligning around Cascade and WordPress.  Most of those who have not made that migration are considering it.  The exception is Provost IT, which is firmly tied to Kentico.
