EPiServer Releases CMS 5 R2

The makers of EPiServer CMS 5 have announced EPiServer Day 2009 -- a conference that gathers together Sweden’s Web experts, international analysts, EPiServer customers and all those interested in Web Content Management and EPiServer CMS.

The highlight of this event is a deep dive into what the vendor calls “the Engaged Web” and experiences surrounding content management and social media.

The Engaged Web EPi Way

With the Engaged Web, companies can move away from boring, static, passive Web sites and convert them into a more dynamic, engaging, personalized Web experience.

One of the perks of being part of the Engaged Web community is the EPiServer Awards. The vendor says that it has received 118 nominations (which is three times more than in 2007) for successful EPiServer-based projects. Notably, 35 of these have been sent in by international partners from all around the world.

The shortlist has been compiled after much discussion and debate by a panel of independent judges, and the winners will be announced at the conference.
