Summary: due to a growing and maturing user community, and Daisy's increased market adoption, Outerthought is now able to offer expanded Daisy-related support and services. Amongst others, those services include: Daisy hosting, (installation) support and turn-key Daisy-based projects.

What is Daisy?

Daisy is an open-source, enterprise-ready content management system, that is unencumbered for commercial usage, bridging the gap between the flexibility and ease of use of Wikis and the robustness and scalability of a general-purpose ReST-accessible content repository.

Daisy can be used for website content management, but thanks to its powerful metadata support and query capabilities Daisy is also an ideal tool for setting up a company knowledge management system. Daisy goes beyond the classic folder-based document storage systems, thus providing a refreshingly new look at content, metadata and knowledge management.

Daisy does WYSIWYG browser-based editing without specific client installation, and provides full-text searching across most common office file formats. Its sophisticated access control system and rich, skinnable publishing framework are specifically designed to ease of use and configurability.
