Implementing an open source content management system (CMS) is a quick and cost-effective solution for many. Upload code, configure, implement existing plug-ins/extensions as needed, modify an existing theme and away you go. But for many this is not enough, more extensive customizations are necessary. Simple to moderate extensions at this point are a no-brainer, but extensive customization of an existing CMS can often be expensive, not to mention frustrating to the developer. The existing code that got you so far so quickly and cheaply eventually gets in the way more than it helps.
At this point a from scratch, fully tailored CMS is often the best solution. The issue is expense and time.
