The free Java CMS space isn't an easy one to stand out in.
Blockbuster platforms such as Magnolia, Hippo, Liferay and DotCMS (to name a few) dominate this area of the CMS market. The people had their say on the subject, and now the judges have weighed in, too. Here's the verdict.
The 2014 Critics' Choice Award for Best Free Java CMS goes to,..
Hippo CMS has grown aplenty during 2014, particularly with the release of Hippo 7.9. In fact, we here at CMS Critic got to see some of that progress for ourselves when we attended the 2014 Hippo Get Together in Amsterdam. We learnt about their passion for not just their product, but for the open source community as a whole. Their work with the Dutch Police Force is a testament to that.
Recently, Hippo was also crowned the 2014 People's Choice Winner for Best Enterprise Java CMS.
Congratulations to everybody at Hippo!
