Dev9 Announces Partnership with Hippo for Content Management

Software Development Firm Selects Java-based, Open Source Software Provider to Deliver the Perfect Customer Journey to Clients

KIRKLAND, WA -- (Marketwired - April 27, 2016) - Dev9, a Kirkland, Washington-based custom software development company, is pleased to announce an implementation partnership with Hippo, a provider of Java-based, open source web content management software. After an exhaustive analysis of over 200 content management systems, Dev9 has identified Hippo as a modern, highly scalable, enterprise-grade content management system (CMS).

"Content management is fundamental to the operation of almost every business," Will Iverson, Dev9 Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, said. "In working with enterprise clients in recent years, we found that traditional, large, expensive CMS platforms just weren't keeping up with modern content needs. We needed a go-to platform to recommend and deploy for our clients that would provide the flexibility and scalability necessary for modern content demands. Hippo CMS is that solution."

In searching for the perfect CMS platform, Dev9 identified five factors that were critical for success: support for continuous delivery best practices, content-as-a-service model for development, an enjoyable development experience, agility and Java-based security and scalability. Hippo CMS delivers on all of these critical needs.

Arjé Cahn, CTO and co-founder of Hippo: "We love how Dev9 understands the challenges of the modern enterprise in their digital transformation. It closely matches our product vision, where we focus on flexibility and agility, combined with our well known best-of-breed architecture, seamlessly integrating in any enterprise digital customer experience model. Dev9's focus on Continuous Delivery is a perfect fit with the Hippo product and it will greatly help their customers deliver on the digital transformation challenges they're facing."

This includes system planning and installation, application cutover, SEO maintenance, content migration and analytics.
