Recently I have been requested to develop a website which has a front end with static content and a backend with heavily dynamic content. The back-end may be used by 100s of users daily to upload data and view processed reports and charts.
The Client is suggesting to use a CMS like Drupal for the front end. They also suggest that the back-end be done with a framework like django or codeigniter.
While I am new to CMS, the idea of using a CMS for static seems not practical for me. It will be a waste of resources and time for a static content that may not change over much within 12 months.
What type of development tools / software should be used for both static and dynamic site of this client?
