WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA and GENEVA, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwire -02/16/12)- Jahia, provider of Java-based open source next generation CMS solutions, announced today the new version of its flagship CMS product in version 6.6 with two major areas of improvements: the platform management and Jahia Studio, its visual integration tool to build highly customized and personalized User Experiences.
Jahia Studio, a new standard of User Experience Building
Jahia Studio is a unique visual User Experience Builder that allows for the convergence of socialized content applications, websites, portals and mobile sites thanks to the easy dragging and dropping of pre-packaged components and modules. Zero code required!
Introduced with Jahia 6.5, this unique integrated User Experience Builder is available for free and for all Jahia integrators.
Some quotes from partners about the Jahia Studio, illustrating its efficiency (see other quotes)
"We couldn't be happier with the performance and ease of use
of Jahia. At BMKLLc Solutions, we had to replace an old CMS
for one of our customers. Using Jahia allowed us to meet our
customer's expectations and more. With Jahia studio we could
build and deliver the new CMS on time and well within
budget." Ries van Twisk -Senior Architect- BMKLLc Solutions,
"With the Jahia Studio, we, at Avantia, can now focus more
on the most valuable part of the consulting we provide to
our customers. Knowing that the composition of User
Experience and layout is under control, we can now dedicate
more time in developing unique, advanced and "content smart"
business solutions based on our own JahiApps and modules,
that will help our clients differentiate from competition.
In addition, we can focus more on solving sophisticated
systems integration challenges" Brian Jimerson -Chief
Architect- Avantia, Cleveland, Ohio
"The Jahia Studio is a great addition to the Jahia platform.
Not only does it accelerate development, but it also gives
non-technical users the ability to create solutions that
would otherwise require developer assistance. This is a big
win for organizations that want to empower their business
users to the greatest extent possible." Glenn Korban
-Director of Technology- Oshyn, Cerritos, California
