dotCMS, the open source Java content management system and digital experience platform, has unveiled a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) solution for the enterprise market.
The enterprise-grade platform, which can be utilized either on-premise or via the cloud, was the winner of the 2014 Critics' Choice Award for Best Cloud CMS for SMB.
dotCMS Enterprise Cloud is built to, “provide brands with a private, secure and fully customizable cloud-based platform capable of deploying web sites, intranets, extranets, portals, apps or any type of content-driven web application”.
By making use of Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing, dotCMS' SaaS solution has no incremental or per unit charges associated with adding users, editors, sites, apps, plugins, integrations or anything developers build in the system.
Will Ezell, dotCMS' CTO, hopes that this step into the relam of SaaS can help remove traditional limitations for brands:
“Removing traditional limitations with software-as-a-service was the driving force behind dotCMS Enterprise Cloud. We were committed to delivering the same powerful feature set in a SaaS model, just as you would have on premise.
We found a way to deliver all the benefits of SaaS, without the costly constraints and limitations that hold businesses back from growing their digital enterprise.”
Tim Brigham, dotCMS' CEO, has spoken out about his company's recognition of “overlapping needs” within modern brands:
“We recognize the evolving and overlapping needs of marketers, developers and IT professionals. They’re looking for a SaaS content management, development and infrastructure solution that drives efficiencies, generates innovation and optimizes results in today’s digital economy.
DotCMS Enterprise Cloud is our direct and game-changing response to real-time marketplace requirements at a pace our customers demand.”
I think dotCMS has done well to offer itself as a Software-as-a-Service solution – and I think that more enterprise-grade content management systems will be wanting to jump on the bandwagon.
Modern brands desire the flexibility and reliability that SaaS brings about. They want speedy deployment, lots of up time, and vendors on hand to handle issues, updates, backups and more. SaaS is the way to make that happen.
