This content management system is considered an "enterprise content management system" as is used for extremely large website, usually 10,000 pages or more.

Proprietary Content Management Systems

Some companies build their own content management systems, then lease the rights to medium and large-sized companies. Such a system was implemented by High Point Solutions in 2003. This content management system was used to create the award winning FASTENnetwork.org, a site managed by Lou Storiale from 2003-2007.

WordPress

An open source content management system first popularized as a blogging platform. Wordpress has evolved into one of the most utilized content management systems for small business websites. Its open source status has allowed thousands of contributor to produce some of the best and easiest plugins for content management, e-commerce, mailing lists, testimonials, captcha applications and much more. Storiale Consulting Group has created several websites using WordPress including a realtor website for Mike Tootelian that made it to Google's first page, first result when searching "bucktown realtor." This listing made it to the top-spot in just 4 weeks.

Joomla

This content management system was used by the Professional Education Institute for the carletonsheets website, which Lou Storiale managed in 2007. Joomla was used for the company website, e-commerce, blog, podcast, articles, and landing pages. Joomla is one of the most used content management systems in the United States.

Drupal

One of the main competitors of Joomla, Drupal, is best known for its use in high-content websites and is used by many public libraries. Another open source platform, Drupal is seen as easier to use than Joomla by many critics. Drupal should be considered as a content management option for high-content websites only.

SilverStripe

An up-and-coming content management system that began as a proprietary CMS, but was released as open source recently. SilverStripe was used on the Sonia Roselli website in 2010. SilverStipe is highly customizable and scalable. SilverStripe is the preferred out-of-the-box content management system by Storiale Consulting Group.

Aqualogic Portals

AquaLogic comprised a software suite developed by BEA Systems for managing service-oriented architecture (SOA). Following the acquisition of BEA by Oracle Corporation in April 2008, most of the software have been renamed and the term AquaLogic is not used in any new Oracle product. However, this portal system was managed by Lou Storiale from 2007-2008 during his time with the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA). ALA used this system to operate and managed their member portal.
