Last month we did an extensive community survey and received feedback on a range of topics from thousands of our community members. We had some very interesting and sometimes surprising results which I will be sharing with you through a number of upcoming posts.
Today’s post is about Content Management Systems (CMS). In our community survey we asked the following question:
“With which Content Management Systems have you already integrated or do you plan to integrate ProcessMaker?”
And this was the result:
In case you are having trouble reading the colors, let me clarify. 30.6% don’t integrate ProcessMaker and/or don’t plan to integrate the ProcessMaker Workflow Automation system with a CMS. Then, the big three were as follows:
And then in a distant 4th place we have LifeRay with a 4% penetration in the ProcessMaker ecosystem. Typo3 scored surprisingly low, especially considering one of our largest and most extensive integrations is with Typo3 for a very large social/government client that we have (40,000+ users). Hmm…I’ll have to investigate this a bit more to see why they scored so low.
Well, I must say that I was surprised to see WordPress in the top three and much more surprised to see it make #1. At ProcessMaker, we have a lot of Drupal fanboys and fangirls here at Processmaker. In fact, we even built a Drupal 8 module that adds the Drupal Inbox and Start Case functionality inside the Drupal experience.
For our own sites, we use Drupal for our website, and next month we are planning on moving our extensive wiki to Drupal as well. On the other hand, we use WordPress for our blog. My webmaster convinced me a while back that WordPress is somehow better for SEO than Drupal so when we decided to rebuild our blog site, we decided on WordPress. By the way – is that just a myth or is WordPress somehow naturally more SEO friendly?
Well, there you have it – WordPress is the winner.
Nonetheless, I think it is fair to say that the split is pretty even and that all three- WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal all seem important to the ProcessMaker community. I guess you can say we have been playing favorites with our obvious leaning towards Drupal (many more past posts from us on Drupal than the other CMS). Maybe we need to start dedicating more time to the others? Well, if that’s the case, it will have to wait.
Well, for those of you Drupal people in the house, don’t worry we still seem to play Drupal as our favorite. Come see us at booth #610 at Drupalcon in Los Angeles May 11-15th!
