Almost every content management vendor gets to a certain point when a reach-out to integrators and agencies is a must. Usually, this move is associated with vendor growth.
Capgemini Nederland B.V. is a subsidiary of Capgemini, one of the most known firms for consulting, technology and outsourcing services. In 2008, Capgemini reportedly made EUR 8.7 billion in global revenue. The firm has presence in more than 30 countries and employs about 90,000 people worldwide.
Hippo-Capgemini partnership is designed to focus on Web Content Management (Hippo CMS 7) and portal solutions, and adding more implementation power to the Hippo ecosystem.
According to the company, some Capgemini’s consultants already received advanced training in Hippo’s technologies. It has also been said that they are participating in the open source Hippo community to “stay on top of new features and functionality.” Sounds like a good step. As we know, Hippo CMS is now in a much-revamped version 7.0, which, most recently, got to the 7.1 release and started shipping as a bundle with Apache Jetspeed Portal 2.2 and Hippo Site Toolkit.
