Day Software has released better-than-expected earnings for the first half of ’09, following a lackluster end to 2008:
As CMS Watch points out in their editorial, Day is clearly positioned much better than some of its counterparts in the web content management (WCM) space. Why the strong performance during these rocky economic times? It may point to the recent, long-awaited upgrade of Communique, Day’s flagship web content management product. With a much sexier, more user-friendly interface and the promise of a more robust backend, Day has lured new customers in and has even kept some existing customers onboard, despite earlier frustrations.
Check out a three-minute screencast about the new version of Day Communique (CQ 5). We promise you won’t be disappointed. Now…let’s just see if Day (who has historically wowed business and technical audiences with promises of sophisticated capabilities) can deliver this time around.
So far, we’ve seen mixed reviews with our clients who have Day implementations in place, but our overall take is that Day has made leaps and bounds in this version of Communique from both a user experience and technical perspective. It offers a better and more user-friendly authoring interface, easier setup, seamless upgrading, powerful clustering capabilities and more.
We want to hear from you. Are you using CQ 5 and have you had good results to date?
