CoreMedia is a global provider of enterprise web content management solutions with headquarters in Hamburg, Germany and San Francisco, California. The company was founded in 1996 and has additional offices in Singapore and London.
CoreMedia’s flagship product, CoreMedia 7, provides customers with a social, mobile and cloud based web content management system. It is a Java-based content management platform designed to meet the requirements of content rich, global web properties including high visitor traffic, multi-language publishing, and multi-channel services delivered to a range of digital consumer devices.
Additional CoreMedia 7 product modules include the Adaptive Personalization solution for delivering contextually relevant web experiences, Elastic Social which provides a scalable platform for incorporating and moderating social media, and CoreMedia Live Context. The LiveContext solution offers pre-integrated web experience management capabilities for users of IBM WebSphere Commerce and SAP Web Channel Experience Management e-Commerce platforms.
CoreMedia also provides a rapid development framework called Blueprint which contains preconfigured tools, templates, and features that can be deployed immediately to reduce implementation time and speed the development of innovative web applications.
CoreMedia deploys an information-based, object-oriented document type model that separates content management from presentation. At the heart of the product’s delivery subsystem is its run-time environment, which is called the Content Application Engine (CAE). The CAE serves as a Web content delivery hub and also acts as a data aggregator, processing content based on its context and delivering it to the appropriate channel.
CoreMedia’s clients include the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Bertelsmann, BILD, CLAAS, Continental, EPCOS, Deutsche Telekom, Internet Broadcasting, JD Group, Tchibo, Telefónica Germany and ZDF.

The CoreMedia CMS is an enterprise web content management system with a flexible architecture and open interfaces, allowing it to be modified to suit a variety of business requirements.

A publishing component transfers the content from the management side to the delivery side. The CoreMedia CMS is based on 100% Java technology and uses the Spring Framework.
