The core value of software as a service is providing access to, and management of, a commercially available application.
"Software as a Service: Strategic Backgrounder", Software & Information Industry Association 2001

Amid the lofty aspirations, few have noticed just how powerful and grounded a force software as a service has become.
The impact that SaaS will have on IT organizations is profound, and as business technology leaders, we need to ensure that our companies are ready for it.
"Why You Need A SaaS Strategy", Michael Biddick, 2010

You have no right to sell hosting service, or in any other way to profit from the system. You have the right to place a system of any number of sites, provided that all pages of each site will be present logo and link to the website of the System.

Modules store

All developers can sale or offer for free their additional modules with ModStore. The Priority edition owners have a reseller rights for the all paid modules and can acquire an additional benifit from it.

Whereby CMSaaS better than other CMS?

By that it is another

By that it does not use scary words such as “taxonomy. ” Instead, you propose to create the page, draw a menu and get ready site without the headache.

Also, do not have to think about hosting and installation (this CMS comes with hosting), and forget horrible words “ftp”, “mysql” - all this is no longer required.

Because it is based on the fastest web technologies, available today for mass-market.

Can I test this system in action for free?

Yes, soon you will be able to create a third level domain on our site and test all its capabilities.

Why MongoDB?

MongoDB simplifies development. Data in MongoDB is stored in JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas, providing flexibility during the development process.

MongoDB has built-in support for horizontal scalability, full consistency and transactional updates.

Why Erlang?

It's a concurrent programming language and runtime system. Web sites are no longer a collection of static pages, and their generation for multiple users requires running in concurent, thread-safe environment.

Hot-swapped code allows an automatic upgrades. Structure of Erlang allow to distribute platform to the many servers automatically.

And finally, it's just cool because Erlang is the language of the future Web.
