Founded in 1999, Hippo didn’t gain a threshold in the U.S. until early this year, when they acquired the open source portal software company BlueSunrise.
Now international, Hippo does business from both Amsterdam and San Francisco. Their products include:
* Hippo CMS: for publishing web and intranet content. This native XML content management system is suited for organizations that have large amounts of unstructured data.
* Hippo Portal: streamlines and authorizes various information sources in your company. The portal technology (JSR-168) enables you to integrate back-office applications without losing control. It allows for personalization and extensive rights management.
* Hippo Document Management (CDM): is suited for maintaining technical documentation (compound documents). It can handle complex XML structures and still allows for lightning fast retrieval.
Hippo will also be showing a sneak preview of their Hippo CMS version 7 at their booth.
