Magnolia, the rapidly growing Swiss CMS vendor, launched an innovative new solution - Magnolia Now™, a cloud-based digital experience platform - at its seventh annual conference in Basel, Switzerland on June 8-9. Magnolia Now takes the hassle out of the deployment and operations of content management and gives companies the ability to go to market fast. It will be available from November 2016 in a variety of packages.
“Magnolia Now opens an entirely new market for us,” said CEO Pascal Mangold. “While Magnolia Core™ remains the most flexible enterprise CMS on the market, not every customer has the means to utilize its power to its full extent. Magnolia Now takes the key functionalities of Magnolia Core and packs that up into the cloud. Not only does that free DX projects from the IT bottleneck typically found in organizations today, but it also ensures the fastest time to market for digital experience projects, a critical issue for organizations today."
This year’s Magnolia conference was the biggest ever, with over 300 attendees and 30 talks taking place over two days.
