What is dotCMS?

dotCMS is a Java open-source content management system for companies that demand performance in web operations and content management. With dotCMS, companies can create value and deliver dynamic user experiences across multiple channels. The solution is built on open standards: JSON, XML, REST, Spring, OSGI and CMIS. The vendor says it is extensible and massively scalable, and can help companies rapidly deliver personalized, engaging content across devices, channels, second screens and endpoints, all from a single system.

DotCMS offers an open source community edition and an enterprise-level premium J2EE/Java based content management system. According to the vendor, these editions provide organizations large and small, a non-proprietary, familiar and rapid development platform. The vendor also says the solution is designed for massive multisite scalability and cost effective operations in almost any business setting, and meets and balances the requirements of today’s marketers, web developers, UI designers and IT management stakeholders.
