Info-Tech research Validates That Joomla Is Used on More Than 1.5 Million Websites

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2011) - Joomla, one of the world's most popular open source content management systems (CMS) used for everything from websites to blogs to Intranets, today announced it has been named a "market pillar" in Info-Tech Research's latest Vendor Landscape Plus Report for Web Content Management (WCM). Info-Tech Research Group is one of the leading IT analyst research firms serving more than 8,000 organizations worldwide.

In addition to being dubbed a market pillar, Info-Tech recognized Joomla in its 69-page report for:

  • Broad adoption: According to Info-Tech, about 1.6 million websites use Joomla.
  • Value: According to Info-Tech, "On a relative basis, Joomla maintained the highest Info-Tech Value Score of the vendor group. The other vendors were indexed against Joomla's performance to provide a complete, relative view of their product offerings."
  • Ease of use: According to Info-Tech, "Joomla is considered easy to install and deploy."
  • Quick development: According to Info-Tech, "The Joomla Community provides a large number of templates, designs, and modules that can be used to create sites quickly."

"Info-Tech's latest report provides valuable insight into just why Joomla has gone from a small project six years ago to an established CMS by which others are measured today," said Ryan Ozimek, president of Open Source Matters, the not-for-profit created to provide organizational, legal and financial support to the Joomla project. "It is especially satisfying for our community of thousands of volunteers to be recognized for making Joomla so easy to use and fast to deploy while keeping the costs for developers and web administrators to a minimum."
