Compare a true business site from Opstreams versus a traditional website. The difference? We create an online business for you, not simply a website that does little to enhance your profits or customer experience. Our Joomla and Wordpress frameworks have become the gold standard of the industry, running 6% of the entire web, and we've been doing Joomla, Wordpress and Drupal exclusively since they first went public. The result for you? A site that will easily change with you as the technology and your business model changes, that will not grow obsolete, and that is easy to keep fresh because it's user-modifiable with no technical barriers.
In the chart, please note the key differences in true cost, developer and client roles, and clear functional expectations. Building a professional CMS site such as Joomla or Drupal requires a bit more thought and structure up-front, but pays off over time with ease of keeping the site fresh, flexibility for business and technology change, adding new features, and not being held hostage by technical "gurus". Thus, for almost the same price you'd pay for an equivalent traditional website, you can now afford a high-end content-managed site with virtually no risk of obsolescence, making every dollar of your investment more powerful.
