DotNetNuke is a key strategic part of our technology platform; the power and flexibility of the framework help us deliver a constant flow of new business value on an aggressive timeframe
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2009
DNN Corp., the creators of the industry-leading DotNetNuke® Development Framework, today announced the release of DotNetNuke Professional Edition. DotNetNuke Professional Edition extends the company's successful solution portfolio, giving users the option of purchasing a "certified" version of the framework. DotNetNuke Professional Edition contains all of the powerful, usable and extensible features that have made the DotNetNuke Framework so successful, with the added security, support and stability features required by many businesses for mission-critical environments.
Over the last five years, DotNetNuke has become an essential framework within many business environments. The quality and flexibility of the code base, combined with a very active and supportive community, have resulted in several hundred thousand deployments. Many businesses now use DotNetNuke for production applications, and require a "certified" version of the product as they make the framework a more central part of their communication infrastructure.
"DotNetNuke Professional Edition is a direct response to requests from our user community," said Navin Nagiah, President and CEO, DNN Corp. "The DotNetNuke Framework has become integral to our users' computing strategies, and we developed the Professional Edition to ensure that these customers can confidently deploy DotNetNuke in any environment." DotNetNuke Professional Edition is optimized for business applications.
"DotNetNuke is a key strategic part of our technology platform; the power and flexibility of the framework help us deliver a constant flow of new business value on an aggressive timeframe" said Jeffrey Sullivan, CIO, ThinkCash Financial. "As our DNN applications become increasingly more strategic to our business, we need the Professional Edition that provides greater levels of support, stability and security."
DotNetNuke Professional Edition features include:
- Guaranteed product issue resolution through premium support channels, enhanced resources and immediate attention from experts most familiar with the framework
- Proactive management and communication of security-related updates to minimize potential threats to the stability and integrity of DotNetNuke applications
- Second-level testing to mission-critical standards ensuring each release is ready to use in production environments
- Certification by DNN Corp. as the production version of the DotNetNuke Framework, with guaranteed early access to functionality and assured inclusion of features in future versions
"Some of our customers had to know that DNN Corp. stands behind the platform before they would tie their businesses to DNN, and that meant the need for a certified and supported version of the software," said Chris Chodnicki, CTO/Co-Founder of R2integrated Inc. (R2i). "This announcement is a great step forward in meeting that market need, and it demonstrates that DNN Corp. is in tune with its community base."
DotNetNuke Professional Edition includes the mature DotNetNuke Community Edition core software and essential modules for rapidly creating highly interactive content-rich websites and applications. In keeping with the spirit of the open source development model, the Community Edition will continue to be licensed under the permissive BSD open source license, and DNN Corp. will work continuously to provide innovation and increased value in both versions of DotNetNuke.
Both DotNetNuke Professional Edition and DotNetNuke Community Edition are available now.
