Joomla Jumps to the Enterprise

“A lot of the enterprise push comes with the newest release of
Joomla. Multi-database support in this version helps position
Joomla as “enterprise glue” to connect separate and proprietary
systems and data stores and allow companies to internally display
the data.

“Most open source CMS run on the MySQL database, but with the
most recent version of Joomla you can use Microsoft SQL Server,
Azure cloud services, Oracle or PostgreSQL. This kind of
multi-database support is important for Joomla – it removes the
need to spend more money and time integrating additional software
to get Joomla to communicate with existing enterprise

“Today, Joomla is not the “little CMS that could” project that
started in 2005 as a Mambo fork. It’s now really two parts: one
part is the CMS for websites and the second part is the Joomla
platform (which is kind of like an operating system – or the
brains) for the CMS.”
