Plone Grabs Attention in Infoworld's Best of Open Source Software Awards (The "Bossies")

Infoworld's Sixth Annual awards for Open Source Software names Plone as one of "The best open source applications" in 2012

According to Infoworld,

"If the likes of WordPress and Movable Type are too simple or closed-ended, consider Plone, an industrial-strength content management system built on top of the Zope application server and the Python programming language. In addition to blogging and page/asset management, Plone includes events and calendaring, user accounts and discussions, and integration with directory services. Dashboard views can be based on user-group membership, to customize internal views based on department, for instance. Plone is also up-to-date with modern Web standards (HTML5, jQuery, and so on). Additional functionality comes through a whole galaxy of extensions sold or provided by third parties."
