Product Evangelist Adam Broadway introduces the 'Web App' feature in Adobe Business Catalyst which enables web designers to build searchable database-driven web applications with a point and click approach.
Save time, preserve consistency and avoid duplication with templates. The template system is simple - put the page elements you want to reuse in the template, and wrap your pages in templates. Simple, yet powerful. When you're ready to add extra functionality, you simply layer your modules with a point and click approach.
You don't need to learn anything special to design websites on BC. Instead you simply design your HTML, then layer our modules into your design. At its core, BC works like web hosting - in fact if you wanted to design a whole website without using our modules and then FTP it up to our servers - it'd work just fine. And that just means you've got all the creative freedom you need.

The prefect online business 'all-rounder' Submitted by Brendon O'Sullivan on March 13, 2012 – 12:28AM
Our company, Bosweb Systems, built our own CMS for the first 8 years of business. As such we had a complete appreciation for what our clients wanted and in 2008, when our spend on R&D of our own CMS was beyond ROI I went searching for a CMS system that 'did the lot'.
I investigated, Drupal, Wordpress & Joomla and all of this didnt meet the complete set of expectations that our clients had. By 2009, I had decided on Adobe Business Catalyst and began migrating our 150+ client organisations across to the platform.
By 2012, we have now developed over 300+ website solutions on Business Catalyst for both our own client organisations, and other Business Catalyst partners.
This year version 3 will soon be released, with an easier to use administration interface and in order to work with tablets. There are a host of other features being included.
It's worth noting that a lot of the features indicated as not avilable for Business Cata;yst actually are (so CMSHarbor will need to update their records).
Long story short - we are incredibly happy with Adobe Business Catalyst and see the huge potential into the future along with equally large investment to ensure that it remains the best platform in the market.
