eZ Systems partners with Platform.sh to accelerate development of content- rich websites and applications

By Mike Johnston September 22, 2016 News & Headlines

In their mission to help enterprises build stronger performing applications at speed and scale, eZ Systems and Platform.sh announce today a new partnership that offers developers an accelerated path to build content-rich websites and web applications with eZ’s open source content management system, eZ Platform, and its premium edition, eZ Enterprise. By taking advantage of Platform.sh’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), eZ now allows developers to build, test, and deploy new features faster and more frequently, which in turn reduces costs, time, and risk for the business.

Whether it’s ecommerce, news and media sites, multi-channel applications or connected devices (the Internet of Things), users expect seamless, engaging digital experiences. This puts pressure on the C- suite, developers, marketers and editors to deliver new features quickly and on quality to meet users’ heightened expectations. eZ’s choice to integrate Platform.sh’s PaaS into eZ’s content management system provides developers a better user experience, elevating production uptime and continuous delivery of changes, which in turn equips business users and executives for digital success.

“The PaaS concept brings the promise of helping developers focus on what really matters: developing new features. With Platform.sh for eZ Platform and eZ Enterprise, this promise turns real. Finally, developers can focus on code, and not on infrastructure. This means a lot for the business!” says Roland Benedetti, Chief Product and Marketing Officer, eZ Systems.

This latest strategic partnership is testament to the level of trust that software vendors have in the power of Platform.sh’s expertise in continuous delivery and PHP. “We are very pleased to sign this strategic agreement with another global software vendor. eZ Systems has a great reputation and has had a strong presence in the PHP marketplace for some time already”, says Fred Plais, CEO, Platform.sh.

The new version of eZ’s platform offers a strong differentiator from other CMS solutions. By choosing to partner with Platform.sh, eZ stands to benefit from accelerated licence sales, and incremental revenue growth from PaaS hosting as part of their business model. “The combination of the Platform.sh PaaS and eZ’s new content management system gives eZ a considerable advantage over their competitors. We are pleased to have already acquired our first joint customer, Gelbe Seiten Marketing Gesellschaft bmbH (The Yellow Pages in Germany) last week”, adds Kieron Sambrook-Smith, Chief Commercial Officer, Platform.sh.
