Cignex, a deployment sppecialist in open source consulting and software services, announced the completion of the first phase of the Goldegg Initiative, Goldegg One. The Goldegg One project team worked to establish a roadmap for Plone to encourage enterprises who have not yet adopted the Plone stack for Content Management System to try the technology, and to protect the technology and resource investments made by existing users. Co-funded by a large Cignex customer in the public sector, Goldegg included more than 26 developers from about 17 companies across 6 countries, and the involvement of community leaders, one of the largest groups of open source experts and innovators in the content management industry, to make the open source Plone CMS a viable alternative for enterprise content management. Plone is an out-of-the-box ready content management system that is built on the open source Zope Application server for managing web content for application portals, extranets, intranets, and custom web applications. In order to be adopted broadly by enterprises however, the Plone application must be more tightly integrated with its underlying stack and supported by a migration path for future upgrades. Zope 3 is an open source web application server primarily written in the Python programming language built on “component architecture.” It features a transactional object database which can store not only content and custom data, but also dynamic HTML templates, scripts, a search engine, and relational database (RDBMS) connections and code. It features a through-the-web development model, allowing you to update your web site from anywhere in the world.,
