You have to push new technologies that are going to propel your company forward or you risk being the IT equivalent of a company that waited too long to move to the next generation of technology."

When you commit to a content management system, you're investing in the system's leadership, vision, and reliability. It's not just about how the system looks now – it's whether you can trust it to perform year after year, and upgrade after upgrade."
