While the Big 3 remain unchanged from last year, the Report concludes that WordPress retains a clear lead in the face of decreasing competition from Joomla!.

“WordPress turned in another strong year, clearly outpacing both Joomla! and Drupal,” notes lead analyst Ric Shreves. “Looking beyond the Big 3 we find a considerable amount of movement in the market, with several smaller systems turning in solid performances this year. Concrete5, in particular, had a very strong year.”

Though PHP-based systems remain the populist choice, the survey places two .NET and three Java systems in the Top 20. DotNetNuke remained the market leader in the .NET space. In the Java WCM space, Liferay and Alfresco are fighting a closely matched battle.

The findings in this year’s report were based on a survey of more than 2,500 CMS users, together with research into a wide variety of measures of market share and brand strength.
