Why choose Magnolia as Open Source CMS?

Magnolia is an innovative CMS, for example it is possible to use the ipad to manage the contents. Magnolia’s team works hard to improve the product; the community is small but active and the support for the enterprise version is good. Magnolia’s team asks the users what they think and what they need, and the new functionalities planned for Magnolia 5.3 are very exciting for example the content personalization.

Next version seems to be largely improved, but managing the update will be challenging. I think that a big company needs a CMS like this for their websites. Also it is always good to have a CMS that gives you also the possibility of managing the publishing for different devices like in V5.
