In 3 weeks from today we are going to kick-off our annual Customer Summit in Zurich (and two weeks later in Chicago). Going through the office in Basel feels like everybody is busy making sure the events are going to be awesome.
The engineering team is putting the final touch on what has been in the making for multiple years - yes - I'm talking about JCR 2.0. It is exciting to witness the implementation of the next generation content infrastructure API and see what it does for the user facing content applications. The next version of our WCM, DAM and Social Collaboration platform CQ5 - to be unveiled at the Customer Summits - is taking full advantage of JCR 2.0 (JSR-283). This for sure is great news for developers. They get an extended rock solid API to build content applications and integration services.
Another mission - with focus to reduce the distance between the author and the consumer (visitor) - resulted in a slew of new CQ5 features. We want content authors to have a better insight on how their content is consumed and provide feedback what worked and what not. With this, we are closing an important loop in providing targeted content to an apparently unknown audience.
If that is not enough, I'm sure you are interested to learn how the City of Chicago, Adobe, New York University (in Chicago), Telecom Italia, Boehringer Ingelheim and Investec (in Zurich) are using the Day products. That's only an excerpt of companies and partners that will participate - we are finalizing the agenda this week and will make it available starting next week.
For all of you already signed-up for the Summit - we are looking forward to share with you the latest awesomeness in Zurich or Chicago. If you haven't - it's not too late.
