Magnolia Conference 2009
It was good to see so many different groups represented, the whole range through users, customers, integrators (even competitors ?!?!).
Whilst it’s nice to see all these people, from a business perspective it represents a whole lot more. In the cliched ‘fractured’ CMS market place, it is essential for Sceneric to be able to demonstrate to potential customers the depth, reach and commitment of the Magnolia community.
Being able to directly speak to different members of the community and understand what they have been doing, allows us to speak to customers with more confidence
about not only what could be achieved, but more importantly , what has been achieved.
Obviously, customers don’t want to feel like they are the guinea pigs for a weakly supported fledgling 1.0 product, therefore having the knowledge of and confidently be able to refer to similar projects, provides an invaluable tool for the promotion of Magnolia.
Up until now, we knew generally of different groups utilising Magnolia in a variety of different ways, but this conference has provided a focal point for the pooling and and sharing of the details of those different projects.
I’m confident that we’ll all look back at this conference as another significant step towards Magnolia further establishing itself as a main player in the CMS space.
