Micah Squires, Principal Engineer at ExactTarget:

"ExactTarget leveraged DotNetNuke to create an exclusive online social networking community where our customers can collaborate, learn and explore new product enhancements and one-to-one marketing ideas. Other web content management packages we evaluated would have handcuffed our developers and limited the ability to flexibly customize the 3sixty web site for our specific needs. The DotNetNuke application enables us to blend code with the existing web framework to create the custom solution we required."

Navin Nagiah, President and CEO of DotNetNuke Corp.:

"We're excited ExactTarget chose DotNetNuke to create online ecosystem, 3sixty. In addition to a top-rate product and best-in-class support, the DotNetNuke Professional Edition offers stability, security and speed of deployment to companies using the Microsoft .NET stack. ExactTarget is a model example of how companies can improve their businesses by using DotNetNuke to deliver dynamic, interactive web experiences to their customers."
