Anyone involved in professional online publishing knows that the way to the internet is connected with fast-paced technical progress. While looking for solutions to current problems, you will also discover topics for the future which you might have no idea how to classify at present. The Thunder Coalition around the Thunder Core Team has developed a CMS which recognizes and covers the needs of professional publishing. But that is not all. Thunder also recognizes problem scenarios and the concerns of media professionals, and knows which technical developments need to be integrated into our strategies. Thanks to the large network of the Thunder Coalition, we have been able to get experts on relevant topics.
