Low Code: Avoiding to Reinvent the Wheel

Security is a challenge

Many CMSs, mainly open source, offer hundreds of plug-ins to enhance the functionality of the websites and the CMS. Some are useful, many are not. A certain degree of redundancy exists. They are often created by the community or anonymous third- party companies, which makes it almost impossible to track security standards, especially in the PHP world, thorough testing and coding standards are not a priority. Those plug-ins usually become a back-door to access the company’s data on the servers.

According to Imperva “98% of WordPress vulnerabilities are related to plugins, which extend the functionality and features of a website or a blog”. Security breaches caused by using unsecured plug- ins might compromise enterprises in a far different way – allowing hackers to change content on websites, exploit personal data or even install malware – in the age of GDPR, this should not be ignored.

Other plug-ins, especially those available for commercial CMSs, are difficult to adjust or enhance. At best, the support of a developer is needed. At worst those plug-ins don’t work, causing code breaks requiring PHP or Java specialists to locate and fix errors.

Open source but curated

SaaS CMS Scrivito offers 70+ useful, customizable widgets out-of-the-box. These are tested and curated by Scrivito, even if they are 3rd party. You can use them as they come, drag and drop on the page, and see the results of your changes in an advanced WYSIWYG editor with live preview. If our set of widgets isn’t enough, you can simply create and deploy your own using JavaScript and React.

10+k JavaScript / React libraries

Since Scrivito can be enhanced with JavaScript / React, the related libraries and frameworks can be used from sources like npm or GitHub. These libraries are numerous and cover a broad range of additional functionality to develop any web application. Adding those libraries to a Scrivito project is very easy. This reduces your project efforts significantly.

Unlike existing CMSs, Scrivito does not limit the implementation of the project in any way . Since Scrivito can be part of any JavaScript / React project, there are few restrictions on how the web application is designed and developed. Scrivito embeds itself as a service lightweight in the project, not the other way around. This keeps training for developers low: if you know React and JavaScript, you already know Scrivito.

Measurable Success

10 points to measure the success of a CMS. Only measuring can indicate what can be improved. Behind every aspect in this paper, there are years of experience in the CMS world from the authors. There are also strong technical skills and a strong belief that it is important to build a new generation of Enterprise SaaS CMS which radically changes the approach to how a CMS needs to meet the next generation of digitalization requirements.
