Toward a More Social CMS with DNN 6.2
How social is your CMS? If you’re like most digital Web workers, the out-of-the-box CMS you use each and every day is likely not very social at all.
Web content management system DotNetNuke hopes to change all that with the release of DNN 6.2, a more social CMS designed for enterprises to configure and deploy social collaboration solutions and communities for their key audiences.
"Building an effective online community is a proven strategy to improve productivity and get closer to your customers,” says Shaun Walker, CTO and co-founder of DotNetNuke Corp. “Businesses now have the capabilities to deploy online social solutions much faster, that are fully integrated with their external and internal websites, without the high cost of customization associated with current enterprise offerings in the market."
The product capabilities, particularly for a content management system, are impressive. DNN 6.2 features activity feeds that power user interactions, social groups and forums to increase collaboration, social logins (Facebook, Twitter, & Google+) to drive participation, friend and follow controls to encourage social relationships, and much more including private messaging, interactive user profiles, a member directory, a social API, Sharepoint integration and several localization offerings.
"While major social media sites like Facebook are great, many businesses and organizations need their very own community and social collaboration tools directly on their own websites," says Tom McAllister, sales manager of LRS Web Solutions, a DotNetNuke partner. "We are impressed with DotNetNuke 6.2 and the enhanced integration of so many social tools. This will not only benefit us as DNN developers but also will help our customers get social sites to market quickly and affordably."
DotNetNuke 6.2 is available now and is offered in three versions: Community (free), Professional, and Enterprise Editions. Pricing starts at $2,499 for an annual Professional Edition subscription.
