E^cologic is the name we have assigned to our way of managing website content. Our open systems approach to managing website content does not rely upon a CMS, instead, we build websites directly on-top of the data layer to deliver incredible speed, reliability and flexibility.
Sub@omic stands apart from the crowd thanks to our non-reliance upon commonly available CMS such as Wordpress. A CMS does not make for a better website - ever; a CMS only exists to make it easier for website administrators to add and edit website content. Wordpress simply sucks bandwidth, presents a large attack surface for cyber criminals to exploit known loopholes, consumes more web server resources and returns web pages at a slower speed.
Wordpress is a one-size-fits-all approach to website content and management. Sub@omic's E^cologic approach means that our websites are closer to bespoke tailoring. Our consultative approach means that we first carefully listen to what your business objectives for the website are. We write for you a design solution report that answers how the website will achieve your goals and articulate your business proposition. We then set about designing and developing you a website from scratch.
We write every single line of code ourselves. We don't restyle bought-in templates or install freely-available plug-ins. We understand each and every line of code that we write and, because of that familiarity, we are able to offer the assurance of complete integrity and performance.
Websites can and do sometimes break. When that happens you'll want the assurance that comes from being able to reply upon a web developer who is able to fix the problem because they wrote, and understand the code in the first place. If your website does something 'whizzy' by using a plug-in built by a third party then it's more than likely that there can be no guarantee offered by the website designer that a fix will be possible.
We know you don't like to think about code but it's unavoidable. We spend our lives thinking about writing better code. The E^cologic eco-system in which our websites operate is often referred to as a LAMP stack - a completely open source environment that offers you the freedom to host your website with us or any company of your choosing.
How may we be so certain that CMS such as Wordpress suck? Because we developed Web Diffusion; our own, exclusive, website management system to use when budgets won't stretch to bespoke web development.
What makes Web Diffusion a website management system and not a content management system is that Web Diffusion is run as a service; there's no back-end for our Customers to log-in to. The very moment that, as a web developer, you have to develop and maintain a back-end UI for your Customers is the very moment you stop concentrating exclusively upon building the best website possible.
In attempting to be a generic, one-size-fits-all content management system, a CMS such as Wordpress simply gets in-between the website and its data and slows it down. The choice to use a CMS such as Wordpress is not made because the Customer gets to use a website with a superior user experience; the choice to use Wordpress is made simply because it makes life easier for your website designer. Never forget that you have a choice. Make it a good one.
