The Washington Post Spins Off a CMS

This was sent in Issue #7 of Squirrel Notes on April 27, 2018.

As a possible side-effect of the Bezos acquisition, The Washington Post has productized their in-house CMS called Arc Publishing. It’s heavily-optimized for high-velocity newsroom operations with teams publishing dozens of times a day. (You know, like the Washington Post, for example...)

What I found interesting was their products page which lists upwards of a dozen different add-ons related to the core CMS, which must have taken a shocking amount of effort to productize. I’m curious what the customer base looks like, and how “stage-ready” all these extra products really are.
