Open-Source CMS: Transforming City Websites


Sanjay Chauhan recently published a comprehensive analysis revealing that open-source CMS platforms, including TYPO3, Joomla, WordPress, and Drupal, are dominating the landscape of the world's city websites, particularly in Europe. The study, with significant contributions from Grzegorz Pietrzak (the full study is available on The Drop Times), indicates a nearly 50% market share for open-source solutions in government digital infrastructures, underscoring their flexibility and community-driven benefits.

TYPO3, in particular, has seen a notable increase in its adoption across French and German city websites, highlighting its growing importance outside traditional strongholds. The research also highlights regional variations in CMS preferences, shaped by factors such as language and local digital policies. Chauhan, founder of T3Planet, emphasizes the significance of this shift towards open-source platforms, underscoring their role in modernizing city governance to meet evolving citizen demands.
