SilverStripe

SilverStripe CMS is an open source web content management system used by governments, businesses, and non-profit organisations around the world. It is a power tool for professional web development teams, and web content authors rave about how easy it is to use.

As a platform, SilverStripe CMS is used to build websites, intranets and web applications. The modern architecture of SilverStripe CMS allows organisations to keep pace with innovation on the web. SilverStripe CMS enables websites and applications to contain stunning design, great content and compelling interactive and social functions.

SilverStripe Framework is an object-oriented PHP5 web application framework. It is based on a model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, a popular approach for building web-based applications. SilverStripe Framework reduces the overhead associated with common programming tasks and enables developers to write code in a logical and structured manner.

SilverStripe CMS is built on this powerful and soon standalone framework, and therefore developers can do more with SilverStripe CMS than they can do with more traditional CMSs that don't provide a separate framework and focus solely on content management.
