What is WordPress?
Why do I need WordPress?
Wordpress is a powerful content management system (CMS) which we use for all our websites: our company website and the other websites of our network. It works great, is easy to setup and maintain. I believe WordPress is the CMS to choose when creating a website.
WordPress is a powerful, yet easy to use, free and open-source CMS. It was used by more than 22.0% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. WordPress powers websites such as SonyMusic, the eBay blog, Wall Street Journal and New York Times blogs among others.
