Even if Wordpress system is more frequent than Joomla our experience and the opinion of many professionals webmaster is that Wordpress stay a restricted system for the construction of real corporates web sites, but is sufficient to build personals blogs that don’t really need to be able to evolute. Joomla reunite all the quality needed to build solid web sites of any size with or without electronic commerce without compromises.
A large proportion of sites uses older static technology and sometimes even mix with other languages like ASP, flash that most of the time makes those sites expensive to produce and maintain without any real flexibility. The CMS that appear around year 2000 are on the way to replace them. This is the future Now!
Why Joomla 2?
— The detractors:
If you are looking for a web site for your project or company, you can come across statements against the known CMS like; Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress. Those critics, most of the time, come from webmasters that promote their own CMS (Content Management Sysem) that one or more of their programmers put together or they are depositary or some kind of other type of unusual CMS.

The bigger problem with this approach is that in 99% of the cases, if you want to move your site/business somewhere else  no other company will take back your site or they will charge almost the price of a new one to simply try to take control of your system. At the end, you probably have to redo completely your site from scratch.

Startup cost, maintaining, upgrading and modifying that type of web site will always be high. Any addition of motors or any custom capabilities will drive big expenses. Don’t let anybody delude you!

You have to be careful with companies that offer Joomla sites, but in reality have a very light experience of those systems. Graf is specializing itself only in CMS for over 5 years now. Don’t forget to ask what type of customer’s services and technical support will be provided to you after your site become live. Compare with us!
 
Lately, we have to redo a Joomla site with electronic commerce that was promised from a big, known company in Montreal that suppose to specialize in Joomla web sites. After a year, the site never perform as expected, nor be  completely functional. After a month, the site was up and running with praise from the owner. That’s Graf!
The lies:

Lie 1 CMS are not secure...

Answer 1FALSE - Open source CMS, like Joomla, are more secure than homemade sites or CMS. As proof, more than 40 millions sites are actually online and a good percentages of them are governments sites, complete electronic commerce or repository of privates documents and information. Every day more than 200,000 programmers actualize the core programming and  internal security and motors (modules). Security updates are easily available and installs in minutes to keep your site up there.
These updates are similar to the ones for your computers systems (Windows, Mac, Linux). It’s impossible for few programmers to have the same level of follow-through.

In fact, web security is more about the knowledge and experience of the webmaster.

 
Lie 2CMS always look the same, they are template...

Answer 2FALSE -
Joomla, like any other visual and content on the web are build on different frameworks (html, php, css, flash...). The only real limitations are more the knowledge and design skills of the webmaster. Few technology have their own structure, like Flash from the company Adobe. Alas, Flash development and resulting sites are poise with a tremendous cost to produce, maintain and update, even if it’s only a word in a phrase. If wanted, nothing prevent you to integrate flash content in a Joomla site.
Contrary-wise CMS can rapidly with their back-end administration and CSS (cascading style sheet) driven design change in structure and design literally at the click of a mouse.

What they forget to tell you —
Learning to control a Joomla base site is not harder than to learn any computer program. More you learn on Joomla and less you need outside help from them (or us).

Graf do everything in is power to liberate you from any dependence from us.
