Our firm used to help clients assess CMS needs and then assist in the objective CMS evaluation process and then implement the chosen CMS with a partner. After having numerous clients select Plone vs. other open source AND commercial CMS tools and choosing Plone to replace their expensive commercial CMS tools, we chose to focus strictly on Plone solutions for our clients about 5 years ago and haven't looked back.

Plone has integrators in over 150 countries and the CMS supports over 40 languages. It's used by most U.S. military and intelligence agencies, as well as NASA, and is used by large non-profits such as OxFam and ChicagoHistory.org and for-profits such as Gap Inc,, Live Nation, Akamai, and Honda.

The other open source CMS tools either lack the fine-grained permission management and/or workflow capabilities Plone includes, or don't handle structured content management (metadata/taxonomy/SEO) or integration as well as Plone does, in our opinion.

Plone has the best security record of ANY CMS per cve.mitre.org, which is greatly due to it running on the secure and robust Zope application server that the U.S. Department of Defense just this year stated is on its approved OSS list at DoD.

So Plone offers a secure, robust, extensible, interoperable, multilingual, accessibility standards-compliant, well-designed-and-tested CMS platform with support available through a vibrant developer/integrator community, and whose code base and feature list just keeps improving every year.

Some of the other CMS tools out there have a support system that seems to do a better job on the hype side, but it's been our experience that Pllone excels on the design/development side and has been able to do anything our clients have thrown at us.

You can have it running on your local machine in 5-10 minutes with a simple download and double-clicking on the single installer file for PC/Mac by going to: http://plone.org/products

This installer will install a local, isolated Python, Zope, and Plone, giving you everything you need for a quick test drive (web server, application server, and database server, all installed in one directory with a double-click - it doesn't get any easier than that!)

While you're there (on the Downloads section of plone.org), be sure to also browse through the more than 3,000 (!!!) free add-ons for Plone that you can also freely add to your CMS instance. These let you do things such as add your chat client or Google Maps to your site, integrate with LDAP or Active Directory, integrate with Salesforce.com, and more.

With Plone, there is no division of 'Community Edition' versus 'Enterprise Edition' as with some more proprietary or non-community-developed CMS tools. Instead, you get all of the full functionality of the CMS and decide what makes sense for you to use for your project.

For very robust, enterprise type needs, Plone let's you run multiple instances that all share the same database (referred to as a 'ZEO' setup.) This again is built-in functionality and is not something you have to pay license fees to get, as with some other supposed OSS CMS tools.

Download it - Try it - Enjoy it! You'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
