The next wave of European content management vendors hitting the U.S. market is yet again upon us. This time, the ripples are coming from the open source Enterprise CMS vendor Jahia (news, site).

The vendor launched its U.S. mission two years ago, continuing it with today’s formalization of efforts by opening its North American HQ office in Washington, DC. Emmanuel Garcin, Jahia's VP, will serve as the GM for North America.

A little before that, a new R&D and Support office was opened in Montreal, Canada.

In the meantime, Jahia has also been shaking hands with integrators like Quoin, Sapient and Avantia, trying to cater to all its Java-devoted customers in and outside of the Americas.

These are some of the highlights of what Jahia’s been up to lately, in case you need a reminder:

With local as well as other European open source vendors (like Hippo and Nuxeo), it may get pretty crowded in the enterprise CMS U.S. market. Closed-source ECM vendors like IBM, EMC and Open Text are surely paying attention.
