 Project objective

75% of all websites are open source, even the European Commission platform mainly relies on Drupal today. Whilst most of the open source CMS platforms have many users, they each have their weaknesses. This is why many companies still rely on custom software development or simply reach for a template or customize a theme. Cinnamon Open Source CMS: Since 2005, we are using our Apogee Essence proprietary CMS that is is easy to use, safe and allows changing the core code with limited programming skills. We now want to take the next step and make it open source and call it Cinnamon Web Development Framework. Cinnamon is a powerful CMS and Framework that allows for fast, flexible and problem-free development, management and maintenance of any website, e-shop or portal. Cinnamon allows creating dynamic web applications and websites that are not only well structured and attractive, but that are also visible and popular within the web. A website has become a business card and proof of existence for companies. Still, ha lf of all businesses do not have a corporate website. As a consequence, there is still much room for growth, and Cinnamon can facilitate this task. This gives us access to the European web content management market size is predicted to account for 20% of the overall market share by 2022, which is around €1.9 billion. We will follow a freemium model where developers and designers can use the platform for free and then sell their templates and plugins, etc. within Cinnamon to other users. Both of our general partners Nektarios Baziotis (Managing Director) and Markos Giannopoulos (CTO) together with a team of senior developers and UI Experts are fully committed to making Cinnamon a success as we see this as the next logical step for our business as it offers major growth potential. Open Source CMS platforms can help consolidate European websites. This will help them be more cost-effective, accessible and efficient means of communication.
