Last week, NTEN released the Content Management System Satisfaction Report (which you can download from their website).  Over 650 people fully completed the survey which covered over 27 different systems.

What I found most interesting was the impact of open source systems on the field:

  • Just over 25% of respondents said open source was in the top 3 of priorities when choosing an CMS
  • Over 1/3 of survey respondents reported using an open source tool already
  • Open source tools (including Drupal, Joomla!, Plone) were given some of the best over all grades by respondents

If you want to find out more about open source solutions, check out the Nonprofit Open Source Initiative.  You can download the report here.

What are you currently using for CMS?  Do you have an CMS or in-house technology staff who manage the website?  If you could ask one question and get a truthful answer in your CMS search, what would you ask?
