The world’s leading Open Source Web CMS
In the years since 1997, when Kasper Skårhøj first developed his infinitely variable Open Source Software, and in particular since 2000 when it was launched as a license-free Web Content Management System, TYPO3 has gathered a vast community of enthusiastic fans. Thanks to its modular construction and ingenious programming, TYPO3 has been able to establish itself among software developers throughout the world, rapidly advancing to become the world’s most implemented Open Source Web Content Management System!
Global players such as the airline Air France and the leading European car-hire firm SIXT AG have chosen TYPO3 for their corporate portals, while the Ford Motor Company has based its worldwide company Intranet entirely on TYPO3 (in fact all companies listed in the header of this page run on TYPO3). And while TYPO3 was initially a European phenomenon, most particularly in the German-speaking countries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the number of TYPO3 installations has recently been rapidly increasing in the USA and on other continents.
- is Open Source and based on the General Public License (GPL). Thus TYPO3 is entirely free of licensing charges;
- is already working hard in more than 500,000 installations;
- is supported in its ongoing development by the efforts of almost 100,000 developers around the world;
- already exists in more than 30 language versions, and more are coming;
- is on offer from 200 certified TYPO3 service providers and many thousands of other agencies;
- inspires the world’s fifth largest Open Source community.
And that´s why...
- TYPO3 has become the quasi-standard Web Content Management System for NGOs such as Unicef, Greenpeace, MSF and even the UNESCO;
- TYPO3 has been installed by many of the world’s Universities, such as TU Eindhoven in the Netherlands, Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska in the USA, the Federal Institute of Higher Technology in Klagenfurt, Austria and the Technical University of Berlin;
- TYPO3 is the choice of the German Federal Government’s online presence wherever a decision is made for Open Source CMS;
- 50% of Germany’s DAX-indexed companies choose TYPO3;
- An increasing percentage of Fortune 500 companies run on TYPO3;
- in a few short years, TYPO3 has become something of a reference CMS standard for small to medium-sized businesses and light industries.
Whether for companies, associations, institutions or administrations, TYPO3 empowers staff to do their own editing, maintenance or complete reworking of their websites, independent of time and place, enabling colleagues to work on their internet presence from separate locations.
