Ok…I don’t know if this issue has been raised before but I would like to get some insights.
So where I work my boss has raised this issue a couple of times…whenever I choose a software to use, he’s always curious to know who owns it and for how long have they been around. He asks this just to be sure that whichever software he invests in will always be there. He had some experiences in the past where some companies (not software though) abandoned the support for the equipment he had and he had nowhere to go.
Anyway, so here is my question on behalf of my boss. @cory we know you are pretty much the only one behind Surreal CMS. And yes, you have shared in the past that Surreal has been around for over 10 years now. My only worry is that what would essentially happen if all of a sudden something happens to you? I don’t know if you have a team of people or if you work with other people to power this software. Some form of assurance is needed that Surreal CMS and its support will be there even when you won’t be around or maybe when you won’t be able to. It’s kinda important to have these answers now more than later.
Second, for curiosity purposes…and here I would love to hear from other members too. What are potential Surreal CMS competitors (if any) and please don’t mention WordPress. Is there any other CMS that does kinda the same as what Surreal CMS is doing? @cory you would have to forgive me for asking this question…hope you understand where am coming from. The only CMS I could think of that may come close is PageLime which was also acquired by Surreal some years back.
Would appreciate your insights.
