As open source software (OSS) becomes mainstream and is backed by large vendors, OSS content management systems have become a viable option for enterprise-scale deployment. The field of CMS has seen particularly strong growth in OSS solutions, perhaps in direct response to the high prices that commercial CMS have historically demanded. There are also other benefits inherent in the use of most OSS CMS, such as ease of customization, the use of open platforms, unrivalled flexibility, remarkable extensibility, ease of integration, strong community support that leads to rapid problem resolution, and much more.
