CMS

// noun

EN A CMS is something our clients often get to work with, so you better know what it is. CMS stands for content management system. It is a tool that enables an organisation to easily create, edit, review and publish content, mostly on a website, through a web-based GUI (graphic user interface). In short, we build your website, you can add texts, pictures, keywords and other metadata via the CMS, making your website a dynamic window to your company. There are many common open source content management systems, like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, but we developed our own smashing CMS, easy to use, working like a charm!


NL Een CMS is iets waar onze klanten vaak mee mogen werken, dus oortjes open. CMS staat voor Content Management System (zegt dus niet CMS systeem, want dat is zoals een ronde cirkel). Het is een tool waarmee een organisatie gemakkelijk web-inhoud kan toevoegen, bewerken, controleren en publiceren. Enfin, wij maken jouw website; jij kan er tekst, foto’s, sleutelwoorden en andere metadata aan toevoegen via het CMS. Je website kan zo een dynamische blik zijn op je bedrijf. Er zijn nog wel courante open source contentmanagementsystemen, zoals onder andere Joomla, WordPress of Drupal, maar wij hebben ons eigen magnifiek CMS ontwikkeld. Een pareltje, werkt perfect!


What's with this lexicon?

Digital transformation, Artificial intelligence, Robots takings our jobs, ... my GOD what a scary time we live in! Right? No, not really. We live in a very exciting time of endless possibilities, of genius new answers to questions we haven’t even been able to formulate... Some people just want to make good money by starting a fire and then being hired to put it out. We don’t like that at Bagaar. No apocalyptic vibes for us, we’re too zen for that.

The intelligence game will be won by those who know how to ask & answer questions critically.

Technology is evolving at a crazy pace, absolutely, and sometimes it might be a bit mindblowing, but don’t worry, humans are still the writers of this story, we decide how it goes. At Bagaar we help our clients every day to gear up for any technological challenge they may be up to, we have a very big toolbox of digital answers to their problems and are very happy to help them in writing their own story. This time we wanted to do something not only for our clients but for everyone, our moms, the guy at the busstop, politicians, journalists, whoever may be helped with a little free knowledge.

Core message here: Trojan: Nice for the greeks, not for you.

So, we wrote this lexicon in the assumption that if people would have more information, and a bit of guidance, they wouldn’t have to feel so helpless when hearing about Digital transformation, MVP’s, Frontend, AWS, Trojans, UX, UI, ... (Que?) We assembled all the buzzwords we use on a daily basis and tried to give a down to earth, simple explanation for each of them. Take it with you, read through it when you’re waiting on a train or getting your nails done and next time somebody starts a fire, you just blow it out yourself (or if it’s too big call Bagaar).

So, you just talked to a developer and didn’t understand any of the words he/she used? If those words aren’t in our lexicon yet, we’ll translate them to human language for you.
