In this era, each day we hear about new technologies. The technology is so dynamic that one day you are using software for your business and on the other day your competitor gets a new technology and ruins your business and owns the market. Many co-operate businesses use new technological solutions to sustain their hold on market and to attract their potential buyers for higher profits for their organizations.  

What is DotNetNuke?

DNN is used for web developing. It is incredibly powerful and easy to use once it is installed. Previously DotNetNuke was written on but after sometime the developer has shifted to C# version 6.0. The best thing about the DNN is that the administration of the site is completely integrated into the site itself. You can be viewing a page, click a button to edit it and have the change online immediately. With other software sites like Joomla and WordPress you have to go to other areas. The biggest advantage is the ease of developing your own modules. If functionality isn't available, you can write your own module without any problems. It requires Windows. DNN is built using the .NET framework and it must be hosted on a Windows server. It also uses SQL Server, which also obviously require Windows. This may not be a problem for internal use, after all pretty much every company has a Windows server running somewhere. 


The other downside is that DNN sites seem to work best in Internet Explorer. That has been improving lately, but I’ve still run across some things that just don’t work right in Firefox or Safari. There is a significant downside to DNN, though but if you want to host your CMS elsewhere, you’ll have fewer options than you would with Joomla or WordPress. The biggest drawback is the response time of a DNN using sites. The code itself is very obsolete and you need to lock yourself and scour on each and every coding detail before using DNN. One more is the URL dependency, if you need to change your domain name to another your old database will be of no use.

Future in Software Industry

The CMS landscape has changed substantially over the past decade. Marketers have supplanted I.T. as the new decision makers for online initiatives in the enterprise. Business users expect a user experience rivaling their favorite consumer software applications. Businesses are interested in a level of convenience that can provide them with near instant gratification. Organizations want to allow their customers and partners to interact with them on multiple channels, on any device, in real time.

In order to cope with this sea change, DotNetNuke needs to adapt. Specifically, it needs to change its identity in the market, as well as expand and enhance its product and service offerings. But at the same time it needs to retain its culture, its unique competitive differentiators, its commercial ecosystem, and its loyal user community.
