TYPO3 is a powerhouse that turns a set of open source components into an enterprise CMS. It can deliver the majority of a project’s requirements out-of-the-box while remaining developer-friendly, well-documented, reliable, predictable, extensible, and easy to upgrade.

Your CMS should make delivering both standard requirements and custom functionality easy. However, unique needs and business requirements typically make up only 20% of any given website project.

TYPO3 delivers the 80% of the CMS functionality every project needs and frees up your developers to focus on the solutions that make you and your business special.
