Danish national lottery - Flexible editorial backend with OpenCms

Track: Business
Speaker: Claus Priisholm (CodeDroids ApS)


Danske Spil A/S is the Danish national lottery and betting company. Seeing that the online sales is an increasing part of the business, Danske Spil last year decided to start work on a replacement for the original web site.

A number of content management systems were evaluated (among those commercial ones) before the decision was made to use OpenCms for the editorial part of the setup.

This session will outline how OpenCms fits into this unusual setup, where an advanced Flex/Flash frontend drives the new solution. The new web site is still work in progress but we can already make some "conclusions". We will look at the features that makes OpenCms a cost-effective and flexible solution in this scenario.
