London, 20 May 2013 – Decibel Technology, a leading specialist in software for web development and website management, today announced the availability of a freeCMS license for developers. Developers frustrated with repetitive, time-consuming coding and debugging will now be able to work on an innovative, enterprise-level web content management system and framework that maximizes developer productivity by simplifying basic tasks and making much more complex technical builds faster– for free.
For the first time, developers will be able to develop highly functional websites straight out of the box, providing more value-add development time and making it a more enjoyable working experience. The free license will provide access to the almost all features of Decibel CMS, allowing developers to create high performance websites for small business and startups without incurring a license charge, while providing an upgrade path to the Corporate and Enterprise versions of the software should the scope of requirements grow.
“We are now offering a free license to allow developers to try out Decibel CMS for themselves as we are confident that once you’ve tried Decibel you won’t look back,” said Ben Harris, CEO, Decibel Technology. “Hundreds of websites are already live on Decibel CMS for major consumer brands including L’Oreal and thePress Association and developer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.We want to break down any barrier to the adoption of the CMS, providing developers with a great platform to develop high performance sites on.”
Talking about his experience of working on Decibel and other platforms, Dave Walsh, developer, says: “If you’re going to build fully scalable websites, there is simply no comparison. It’s very structured, really easy to understand and you can get your hands dirty straight away. Decibel is the way forward.”
Based in Tech City, Decibel Technology’s overarching strategy is to help companies of all sizes improve the performance of their websites and has clients that include The Press Association, L’Oreal and Miss World.
Decibel CMS is based upon an open API (Application Programming Interface), which opens up Decibel’s advanced enterprise level framework and CMS to be fully extensible so that developers have complete control to build new or extend existing features. After integrating the website design into Decibel, they simply write their code in an app, and plug and play. Importantly as Decibel can’t be edited directly, it retains its integrity, stability and security.
Decibel is particularly well suited to PHP 5 object-orientated developers with experience of MVC frameworks. Decibel can be used for developing a broad range of websites, extranets, intranets and web-based business applications. With its sophisticated caching solutions Decibel is ideal for developing high-traffic functional applications, while the platform provides an array of extensible objects that simplify common web development tasks, from creating a new type of content module to writing an authenticated web service.
Decibel Technology delivers a suite of content management tools and services to rapidly build, manage, enhance and future-proof websites. Decibel CMS provides a powerful yet practical alternative to current open source and proprietary CMS on the market through its Open API, which allows developers to build high performance websites quickly and easily. For the first time, Decibel brings enterprise-level CMS and website performance enhancing concepts to businesses of all size and budgets. With headquarters in London, clients include: Lavendon Group Plc, Bell Education Services, Historic UK, Marshall Wace and Miss World. www.decibeltechnology.com
