This is great news for the team over at Automattic – WordPress has become a world-class platform for interactive communications, and this latest move is well-earned.
The new version will apparently be marketed through KnowNow, a Sunnyvale, CA company which has a bit of experience in the enterprise marketplace.
The new KnowNow WordPress Enterprise Edition will offer enterprises a comprehensive authoring solution that includes a powerful new platform for open communications and information management. With the addition of WordPress, KnowNow offers enterprises a platform to build their customer-facing presence in the blogosphere, or an internal platform behind their own firewall to support interactive employee communication. The solution enables authoring of content that leverages the RSS format, meaning enterprises can speed the delivery of critical information to employees, partners, or customers.
