IMHO we're much better selling plone on it's enterprise grade
power. The fact thats its both a web CMS and document management
system. And set the expectation that Plone being Enterprise grade
combined with consultants produces a fantastic fit to your business
These are all good points, and do not contradict the other parts of
you are right but the point I was making was that when we sing Plone's
praises perhaps we pick just our key differentiator for our audience
so that our message has more impact. I don't think easy to install is
a key differentiator.
Since its pretty unclear who the audience for these questions is, that
makes it hard. Is this aimed at getting developers to take on plone as
a tool or at organisation decision makers looking for a solution.
Plone the community open source enterprise content management system.
It's power comes from it's unique combination of content management,
document management, workflow, collaboration tools and web theming
For those controlling the content of site it provides an easy to use
yet power web interface.
For those choosing their organisations next web presence or Intranet
Plone efficiencies by combining several systems into one while
maintaining integration with existing systems and the highest levels
For developers it provides to tools to create anything from a simple
blog to scalble multiserver global intranet, customised to the exact
Plone is among the top 2% of all open source projects worldwide, with
200 core developers and over 300 solution providers in more than 50
Plone has been actively developed since 2001, is available in more
than 40 languages, and has the best security track record of any major
Plone's codebase and intellectual property is owned by the Plone
Foundation, which is a non-profit organization where donations are tax-
deductible (at least in the US).
It's a bit clumsy and could be cut down but I think it has more impact
No one expects SAP to be easy to install do they?
The thing is, Plone *is* easy to install, and you get a very
sophisticated setup even when using the base installers. It's just a
bit challenging to develop for at the moment, something that we're
working hard on fixing.
SAP is hard to install *and* hard to develop for. Or maybe just
expensive, depending on how you look at it. ;)
