New SaaS Based CMS and Digital Experience Platform Offers Unparalleled Flexibility and Removes Constraints to Growth in Digital Business

Dec 02, 2015

MIAMI, Dec. 3, 2015 -- dotCMS, makers of the popular Java open source content management system and digital experience platform, today launched dotCMS Enterprise Cloud - 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 with unprecedented speed and agility.  

DotCMS’s next generation, software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering provides a massively scalable and unifying digital experience solution for organizations challenged with managing the exponential growth in content and content distribution channels. Built and performance-tuned on Amazon Web Services, dotCMS Enterprise Cloud can be rolled out as a single instance or as a multi-instance, high-availability publishing environment and can be set up to meet demanding IT technical and budget requirements.

“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,” says Tim Brigham, CEO of dotCMS. “DotCMS Enterprise Cloud is our direct and game-changing response to real-time marketplace requirements at a pace our customers demand.”

Today’s businesses expect convenience, ease of use and lower IT maintenance costs associated with SaaS offerings. However, most businesses believe they need to compromise flexibility and accept arbitrary limitations and incremental costs with SaaS products. Will Ezell, dotCMS CTO comments, “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.”

With dotCMS Enterprise Cloud there are no incremental or per unit charges associated with adding users, editors, sites, apps, plugins, integrations or anything developers build in the system. The system is fully customizable allowing businesses to choose their most cost effective and best deployment model based on their unique IT and business requirements. This makes the product particularly appealing to resource constrained IT and marketing departments and to companies that are trying to grow their digital strategy rapidly, without constantly running into technical and financial constraints.

“Companies want to bring their systems and content together to drive efficiency and optimize results in digital business,” says Brigham. “We find customers are using our software at the core of their digital ecosystem because of its open development environment and because it’s easier to integrate with 3rd party systems. In each case, dotCMS is simultaneously powering content driven apps, sites, content repositories, intranet and extranet projects. It turns out that being able to build and brand, manage and maintain, an unlimited number of user experiences in a single platform is a high value in the marketplace. Now, with our SaaS offering we’ve eliminated the constraints business face when they want to grow their web operations in a software-as-a-service model.”

dotCMS Enterprise Cloud is now available with pricing and packaging options that start with a single server annually priced, with nothing else to buy. All options include support, upgrades, cloud hosting, 24/7 monitoring and 99.99% uptime guarantee, plus an open and industry standard platform for developers and an unlimited number of sites, users, apps, plugins etc. with no additional charges.
