The Buzz About DotNetNuke 6

Buzz? Bees know that 6 is a magic number. And there’s much buzz about DotNetNuke version 6, recently released in its second beta.  DotNetNuke 6 promises to be a game changer for web based content management, or CMS as redefined by Shaun WalkerCloud, Mobile, Social.

Consider the six-sided home of the honeybee, the hexagon; architecturally strong, simple, secure, one of nature’s most perfect shapes.  DotNetNuke 6, built on the solid rock of Microsoft .Net, is now published in it’s most favored language, C#.  And unlike some popular CMS products that break compatibility with major releases, the engineers at DotNetNuke worked closely with vendors and customers to maintain compatibility with thousands of existing business and creative extensions.  Businesses bet their livelihood on content management solutions and they can’t afford the risk of a shifting foundation; DotNetNuke 6 strengthens its solid foundation delivering not only increasing business value, but also operational peace of mind.

I once saw a swarm of bees move its home from one location to another, it was an awesome sight to behold; powerful, swift and agile.  Version 6 brings unparalleled business agility and cloud capability to the DotNetNuke platform.  With “out of the box” compatibility with Windows Azure and the ability to store files automatically in Amazon S3, DotNetNuke 6 makes leveraging your distributed content easier than ever.  An extensible architecture means cloud storage for everything from Dropbox and SugarSync to Flickr and Facebook is right around the corner.

Bees get work done.  DotNetNuke 6 Professional and Enterprise Editions get more done with the addition of two powerful extensions, Commerce and the SharePoint Connector.  Selling goods on the internet has never been easier or more flexible.  And if your enterprise has SharePoint assets you’d like to share on the public internet, DotNetNuke just made that capability 10 to 50 times more affordable!  That is a lot of honey!

Do you need additional business applications?  Like bees that know where to find flowers, experienced DotNetNuke users know how to find extensions they need in the DotNetNuke Store or the Open Source Extensions Forge. But DotNetNuke 6 brings thousands of business applications directly to you in an Extensions Catalog.  Whether you are looking for a new skin, Twitter feed or video gallery, you’ll be able to browse, search, download and deploy business applications directly into DotNetNuke 6.  No fussing with server configuration or tech support, just browse, click and get on with your business.

And did I mention that it looks great too?  When designers set out to personalize your greatest business asset, they’ll find a platform that lets them do what they do best without getting in their way.  A User Interface makeover in DotNetNuke 6 brings cleaner markup, reusable design patterns, consistent administrative experience and a fully customizable mega menu.

It’s no wonder that the buzz about DotNetNuke 6 is building, but its also just beginning!  Future DotNetNuke 6 releases will integrate deep social functionality including both social sharing and social publishing! And a brand new dedicated DotNetNuke World conference promises greater collaboration, connection and opportunity than ever before!

The bees have it right… 6 is something to buzz about!
