The German-based maker of the FirstSpirit CMS is making a big push into the North American market, recently opening a Boston office and now kicking-off a multi-city partner roadshow with the goal of -- yep, you guessed it -- convincing talented U.S. consultants that the e-Spirit take on Web Content Management is strategically interesting.
This is what we like about the content management world -- it's never a dull place.
The e-Spirit Partner Roadshow
e-Spirit is holding the following roadshow events:
- Chicago: October 21, 2011
- Boston: October 24, 2011
- New York: October 26, 2011
Head over to the e-Spirit website for registration and local event information.
When fishing, one generally needs a bit of bait. The e-Spirit team is convinced that their FirstSpirit CMS technology is seductive on its own, but is additionally running what they call the FirstSpirit Challenge.
Consultants must submit a project proposal and the winners will be awarded a free FirstSpirit CMS license, as well as all the free project support required to make the project a success. In other words, if you convince e-Spirit of your project's merits, you might find yourself in the position of running a very high margin first implementation.
If you're an integrator in search of new alliances, check out the e-Spirit Roadshow details. Inquire directly about the FirstSpirit Challenge details.
The FirstSpirit CMS
Currently in version 4.2, FirstSpirit is a Java-based Web CMS created by Germany-based e-Spirit. FirstSpirit uses XML for storage and is both OS- and database-independent.
FirstSpirit aims to calm CIOs' fears of instability with long-term partnerships and strategies to handle all types of content. The product can also integrate with a company's existing services, including the likes of NetWeaver, WebSphere, SharePoint and FirstSpirit's own AppCenter.
