It didn’t take Day Software (news, site) long to follow up on the release of CRX 2.1 with their next JCR Cup announcement.

The competition is on, but under a different name -- Agility Cup -- and open to a wider audience than in the past.

The 2010 Agility Cup

Agility is Day’s favorite word lately -- hence, the change of theme. Plus, focusing on JCR devs only (as in their previous cups) is too limiting, and Day wants a bigger piece of the pie with CMIS, mobile, marketing as its ingredients.

The Agility Cup comes in several flavors:

IT Agility Cup: CRX 2.1 Composite Content Applications

Open to all developers using the newly released CRX 2.1 to develop applications in the following award categories:

  • Innovative CMIS application
  • Innovative JCR 2.0 application
  • Innovative mobile application

Marketing Agility Cup: CQ5 Multi-Channel Solutions

Open to organizations using Day’s CQ5 content management system in the following categories:

  • Innovative multi-channel marketing
  • Innovative multi-channel commerce
  • Innovative multi-channel customer service

Technology and channel partners are also welcome to participate in all categories. Day CRX 2.1 and CQ5 community members can submit entries to PackageShare, as well as review and rate the entries of others. The winners will be selected by a panel of judges by September and announced at Day’s customer summit, Day Ignite 2010, in Chicago and in Berlin.
