What is Adobe CQ5?
Adobe Communique 5, or CQ5, is a large-scale web content management system that is currently available from Adobe Systems (the makers of Photoshop and Illustrator). Originally developed by Swiss company Day Software, the CQ platform changed hands when Adobe acquired Day in October 2010.
Adobe CQ5 is geared specifically for large companies and corporations with substantial -and often global- infrastructures. It combines web content management, digital asset management, and social collaboration to deliver a solution that allows large companies to manage incredible amounts of information, multiple internal and external websites, a myriad of media assets, and detailed workflow.
Several of CQ5’s key benefits include:
- Substantial reduction in organizational training costs
- Significant control over brand presentation
- The reuse of templates and components while maintaining a unique look & feel
Adobe also contributes significant resources to the open source community, with over 12 Apache and 25 open source projects currently underway.
Some notable companies that use the Adobe CQ5 platform include General Motors, McDonald’s, Kodak, Volkswagen, Audi, and NBC Universal.
