ExpressionEngine (EE) has been acquired by EEHarbor
2019 October 16
EEHarbor has been deep rooted in the ExpressionEngine community for many years and has a long history in building EE add-ons (more than 45!) and development capabilities that will take EE to the next level.
OMG Austin has been integrated in the ExpressionEngine community for more than a decade and is very excited about how this acquisition will impact the future of EE.
Why is ExpressionEngine our preferred CMS?
There are countless reasons why we prefer ExpressionEngine over the hundreds of other content management systems.
One of the main reasons is customization. We can turn any of our client’s visions (no matter how crazy or massive) into a real life web application by utilizing the features that ExpressionEngine offers.
EE’s core system also has rock-solid security, it’s pretty difficult to argue that rock-solid security in this crazy digital age is not vital to the success of our client’s and their company’s well-being.
A great example is having two pieces of paper. One piece is the first line of defense. This takes the hits while the second piece of paper keeps the hackers out of the website.
If you want to get more in the weeds about EE features, here’s a more detailed reasoning on why EE offers better customization and security than others on the market such as WordPress.
Will we continue to build our sites on ExpressionEngine?
Yes, yes and yes! OMG Austin will not be changing our main difference between our company and others on the market. EEHarbor is a group of incredibly capable developers and we are nothing less than thrilled about this shift. We look forward to continue creating custom client’s websites!
OMG Austin has worked with EEHarbor support for years and has never experienced anything less than complete professionalism. We have no doubt that the swift, polished support will not only continue, but be enhanced by this acquisition.
Is this the first major change we’ve experienced with EE?
Nope. Last year, ExpressionEngine moved from a commercial CMS to one that is open source. For now, it appears that EEHarbor will keep ExpressionEngine as an open source; however, the definitive answer on this is still to come.
Will this change the EE Community?
Who knows. It is very possible. Every change within a company brings a change to the overall community, for better or worse. OMG Austin has been a part of the ExpressionEngine Community for more than 10 years, the ups, the downs, and the inbetweens and we can confidently say that the move to EEHarbor will bring a close knit community of developers even closer!
What does this mean for our clients?
OMG Austin’s mission to be a blessing to our clients, we do this by providing the best customer support, the highest quality product and doing it quickly! EEHarbor’s acquisition of ExpressionEngine will only assist us in doing so!
The latest and greatest version of ExpressionEngine! EEHarbor is not slowing down, they will take over the development of EE’s latest version, ExpressionEngine 6.
We are excited to see what’s next!
