2016. Hippo released on-demand Web CMS



The open-source web content management provider Hippo released Hippo onDemand, which is designed to transform digital business ecosystems into flexible and responsive digital experiences while leveraging all the benefits of the cloud. Users of the platform will have access to the full Hippo enterprise stack with capabilities like cross channel and personalization in a Platform-as-as-Service (PaaS) platform, according to Sonja Kotrotsos, Hippo director of product marketing.

2015. Hippo CMS moves from collaboration to marketing



Hippo released the new version of its content management platform Hippo CMS 10. With this new version Hippo moves out of the category of foundation technology focused on productivity, to a solution designed to drive ROI based on content performance. With Hippo 10 marketers now become accountable for what they do with content management and how it drives the bottom line. According to Hippo, most content engagement happens with anonymous users, so it’s critical to understand their habits in order to get them to convert. This is exactly what Hippo 10 was created to do. Rather than focusing on traditional web analytics and studying individual content pieces, the new solution allows marketers to look for patterns between visitors and demographics. Marketers can now focus on their customers and how to convert them, rather than just on the content.


2015. Hippo CMS integrates with Documentum

Thus EMC fills in a missing piece in its content management arsenal without having to spend a lot of money and Hippo gains access to a much broader enterprise market and integration with other tools in the EMC family, while maintaining its independence. For EMC Documentum, which is a long-established brand trying to fight disruption in the content management market, Hippo gives them a modern, open source web content management tool designed to help users manage customer experience.
