Aug 09, 2017

dotCMS, a leading-edge, open source Java content management system, was recognized as a top CMS in Capterra’s 2017 Top 20 Content Management Software rankings. Capterra connects thousands of business users with peer reviews and other tools to help buyers make well-informed business decisions regarding technology in their organization.

"Capterra released a report highlighting the top 20 most popular content management software available in 2017," said Liz Gural of Capterra, a content management reviews hub. "Our rankings are determined by a unique formula that combines the total number of customers, the total number of users and social presence. dotCMS ranked 16th overall because of a strong social following along with having a user base of 20,000."

This recognition comes on the heels of dotCMS’s recent announcement of their 4.x Series, a set of releases focusing on improving the platform. From usability as well as overall performance and scalability, many of these improvements in the 4.x Series come straight from the dotCMS community of users.

“We’re pleased to be recognized as a Top 20 Content Management Software and know that our strong user base is a big part of that,” said Timothy Brigham, dotCMS CEO. “A key factor in building our user base is the constant feedback and communication we receive that we put directly into the development of our platform.”
