Posted February 8th, 2013 in SilverStripe
New Zealand Government websites will switch to Silverstripe, the free, open-source CMS/framework from Wellington company Silverstripe under an "all-of-government" contract.
Common Web Platform / Platform as a Service
Silverstripe have been selected by the Department of Internal Affairs to build the Common Web Platform for the New Zealand public sector.
To do this, they will build a Platform as a Service version of SilverStripe CMS targeted specifically at the needs of the New Zealand public sector.
Over time, this will replace the almost 50 different CMS systems various government departments and agencies use.
