Although open source solutions are increasingly accepted among the UK voluntary and community sector, this type of product has had only limited impact on the corporate and public sector which continue to be dominated by proprietary content management systems.
Nevertheless, over the last three years Futurate have sold OpenCms into a range of national public agencies in the UK and this session will both outline our experiences and approach and will frankly examine the challenges that face the OpenCms community if the platform is to gain a larger share of the UK market.
In the session I will particularly argue that from the perspective of much of the UK market the concept of open source is largely irrelevant and what really matters is credibility, product reliability and service quality from OpenCms providers.
The session will be of particular interest to business development managers and strategists who are concerned to understand how they might develop the market for OpenCms in their region.
