Hippo and Capgemini enter into an agreement to jointly bring open source content management and portal technology to the Enterprise
will deliver solutions based on the new version of Hippo CMS, version 7, which features an enterprise class content-management system fully integrated with Web and Portal environments, with respect to the open source licenses. With CMS7, Capgemini will not only offer a full open source stack, but also expects to help companies integrate a large number of disparate sites and applications in a cost effective way. Shipped as a bundle with Apache Jetspeed Portal 2.2 and Hippo Site Toolkit, the resulting solutions are a fit for environments in which multi-channel publishing, application integration and security are important.
This agreement further strengthens the companies’ relationship, having already worked together on successfully implementing Hippo's software. In addition, a number of Capgemini's employees already received advanced training in Hippo's technologies and collaborate in the Hippo community to stay on top of new features and functionality.
Hippo's CEO, Jeroen Verberg, said: “We are witnessing strong demand in all our core markets. The large number of highly skilled professionals and the technical expertise of Capgemini will add an enormous amount of experience and implementation power to the Hippo ecosystem. We look forward to working with Capgemini to redefine the way open source content management and portal technology are used.”
“Hippo's team has proven a serious commitment to openness and standardization to help integrators and end-users build customized solutions. Capgemini is a strong believer in this model. As we are growing our open source portfolio, we are very pleased to include Hippo in our applications solutions set. Hippo CMS version 7 is a true enterprise-class content management system, fully integrated with a state-of-the-art portal. By working with Hippo we will continue to help our clients drive down IT-related costs while adding business process innovation for our clients,” said Levente Bokor, Managing Consultant at Capgemini.
