Plone is a highly secure content management system, predestined for use in the internet and in intranets/extranets


Plone is an open-source content management system with an outstanding range of capabilities.  Plone is based on Zope and Python.  It is extensively configurable and can be extended as desired with the help of standard supporting products or through user-specific developments.

ZOPYX specialises in the execution and support of complex Plone installations, such as those of large portals in heterogeneous environments, as well as in the development of high-performance Plone extensions.

Plone aids in the realisation of classic websites, sophisticated intranet and extranet solutions and highly-specialised CMS solutions for publishers and the like.

Our customers value Plone for its easy operability, individually adjustable workflows and fine-grained security model.

Plone's outstanding security record renders it particularly suitable for the management of sensitive data.

Plone is among the core competencies offered by ZOPYX.  Our team has been firmly anchored in the Plone developer community for many years and possesses an exhaustive knowledge of this highly capable CMS.

Prominent reasons for the use of Plone:

  • Simple to learn and operate
  • Highly scalable
  • Highly secure
  • Many specific extensions for universities and other institutes
  • Low-cost (no acquisition costs and no licence costs, unlike with other CMS providers)


The University of Bonn migrated its central website, including branches thereof devoted to its institutes, to Zope/Plone.

Andreas Jung provided the University of Bonn with competent and highly efficient advice regarding the conceptual redesign of their website.  He consolidated the requirements of the University's institutes and used the results to develop a concept for building modular institute websites.
