"Even though the economy has started to turn around, current economic pressures are still forcing
companies to look for ways to reduce costs which has led many companies to consider Open Source
Content Management platforms as a CMS / WCM solution.” said Diego Rebosio, Chief Executive Officer,
Oshyn. “While Open Source Content Management solutions are right for some companies, they are not
right for all and they certainly do not guarantee cost-savings. The question of Open Source CMS versus a
commercial CMS is often a hotly debated subject in both business and IT and is often full of biased
opinions and misguided information. When Oshyn recommends a CMS platform to a client it is decided
based on a client’s specific business requirements and Oshyn’s extensive experience in guiding clients to
the right CMS platform for their website and business. Open Source platforms like Drupal have their
place as do commercial CMS platforms such as Sitecore, EPiServer and Open Text Web Solutions.
Finding the perfect match for your business is what can separate you from your competition."
