Organisations using Jadu’s web content management system (CMS) will get a free enhancement to enable blogging on their websites and Intranets, as part of the company’s ongoing upgrade programme.

Jadu Blogs allows non-technical users to quickly and easily create, edit and publish multiple blogs and blog entries on a website. The blogs are fully integrated with the Jadu CMS, enabling users to further enrich and personalise their website content and syndicate news and announcements to third parties.

Suraj Kika, CEO of Jadu says, "Blogs are a key enabler for helping us provide information organisation and knowledge management. We want to focus our blogging technology on collaboration, content and file management, to enable open communications and knowledge sharing between people, projects and departments."

Jadu will be upgrading all its customers, including its government users, to the new Jadu 1.7 CMS platform over the next 12 months. The upgrade will feature major Web 2.0 technologies such as web mash-up page design, RSS feed aggregation, tagging and now blogging. The first Jadu customers to be upgraded to the Jadu CMS 1.7 platform include The Alzheimer’s Society, The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and North Warwickshire Borough Council.

"We’re committed to helping our customers to take advantage of applications that enable information to be published and shared more easily. Blogs are an excellent way of adding new content to a webpage quickly and easily. We’re enabling our customers to take advantage of this new product development for free, giving users the tools to create their own content, without needing technical skills or previous blogging experience," adds Kika.

"What’s exciting," continues Kika, "is where we are taking blogging in the next 12 months."
