WordPress does not exist in isolation. Apart from the vast collection of third party WordPress themes and WordPress plugins, the WordPress platform also relies upon a set of standards for the core code, for plugins and themes, and for interacting with the web in general.

WordPress plays well with the web and web standards

This is very important for your business. As the technical landscape changes, your business using WordPress can stay up-to-date and remain compatible with these new developments.

Data compatibility

Also your data is held in industry-standard database format, making it secure, yet both accessible and very portable — of course, only with the appropriate permissions. An important consideration for any growing business.

WordPress Coding Standards

WordPress coding standards are clearly documented and regularly updated.

This is good for your business because it means that your site will always be running core code that is well designed and robust. Meaning you’ll have fewer technical problems, saving you money and giving your customers a more seamless user experience.
