WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal, all part of PHP-based systems, currently dominate the Web content management space, according to water&stone, a full service digital agency in Bali.
WordPress has regained the overall lead from Joomla! and PHP-based systems remain the populist choice, the report said
“WordPress turned in another strong year, clearly outpacing both Joomla! and Drupal,” said water&stone lead analyst Ric Shreves, in a statement. “Looking beyond the Big 3 we find a considerable amount of movement in the market, with several smaller systems turning in solid performances this year. Concrete5, in particular, had a very strong year.”
According to water&stone, the survey places two .NET and three Java systems in the Top 20. DotNetNuke (News - Alert) is continuing to lead the .NET space. In the Java WCM space, Liferay and Alfresco are fighting a closely matched battle.
Focusing on helping clients realize increased value from the implementation of open source tools, in particular open source content management systems, water&stone conducted the survey covering more than 2,500 CMS users, together with research into a wide variety of measures of market share and brand strength.
Recently Joomla announced it has won the Packt Publishing award for the top open source CMS. Joomla won the award based on a combination of public voting and input by a panel of judges consisting of open source luminaries.
