The choice between Open Source Software (OSS) for your CMS and a commercial licensed product is as much cultural as it is a commercial cost versus benefit decision.
There are huge benefits to open source systems for lower level and mid range implementations and the open source principle itself is powerful, empowering and hugely influences everything we do. From Linux to Android - open source has meant we can do much, much more and react to changing technology much faster.
Jadu CMS is proprietary, but open code. That means our code is not compiled to a binary and your installed instance of the Jadu CMS features the entire source code. We also have Jadu as a .NET distribution - which means you can run Jadu using our open source .NET compiler 'Phalanger' under .NET - making best use of your internal knowledge and expertise as well as existing infrastructure.
Additionally, there are two extensive APIs that provide extensibility.
Guarantee from a market leading vendor
Most open source products have no real guarantee and in many cases, require heavy investment in internal resources to manage, maintain and extend the system. When considering the longer term return on investment of deploying OSS, resources and support are often overlooked from longer term planning.
Jadu has an established base of Government, Commercial and Higher Education institutions who are invested and committed to the Jadu User Community.
Jadu CMS is installed on some of the largest websites in the world, with scalability and security built-in, powering Government and large organisational websites, intranets and extranets.
The security.Jadu service
All Jadu installations include system level intrusion detection. This is a constantly updated service that checks for the latest vulnerabilities. Our source code is restricted access to customer installations and internal employees only. There is no code 'in the open'.
Jadu runs on the Linux, Apache, CMS and PHP platform - providing a Jadu open technology architecture and Jadu reducing cost of ownership. Jadu also runs on the .NET platform, which uses the Jadu Open Source 'Phalanger' .NET compiler.
Commercial CMS support comes complete with a service level agreement that means your issues are dealt with urgently, quickly and with a touch of personal service.
A single support agreement provides upgrades for life, SLA based support and a defined and aggressively implemented roadmap of future developments, influenced by Jadu customers.
Jadu user group
Every year, Jadu runs the Jadu Experience Day, a summit conference for Jadu customers all over the world to experience Jadu, discuss features in an open forum, meet key partners and present solutions and collaborative projects.
