Water & Stone put out there annual report on website content management systems and in the Open Source space it was no suprise to us that Concrete5 made tremendous gains in 2011 and is the fast growing Open Source CMS on the market.
To quote Network World:
"The big winner for this year though seems to be Concrete5 who had a tremendous year of growth. The report authors caution that this could be the result of underreporting them last year, but it seems clear that no matter how you slice it, it was a great year for Concrete5."
Why the big gains by Concrete5 this year? If you have been following this blog you would know that it is flexible, extensible, and built on a solid foundation. But what I think where it has really won over website owner is that it sells itself by being so easy to use. Concrete5 is the iphone of the CMS world. It doesn't take thick manuals to understand the basics of it because site editing is so very intuitive. It doesn't take a lot of brain power to figure out that if you navigate to a page, click the Edit Page button to make changes to a page. Adding new pages to a site is just as easy.
I don't want to make Concrete5 sound overly simplistic. It is actually pretty robust and gives you more functionality than most any other open source CMS out of the box.
