eZ Platform (pronounced "easy platform") is an open-source enterprise PHP content management system (CMS) developed by the company eZ Systems, which has headquarters in Porsgrunn, Norway and Brooklyn, NY USA. eZ Platform is freely available under the GNU GPL version 2 license, as well as under proprietary licenses that include commercial support.
The initial version of eZ Platform was released on December 15, 2015.
eZ Platform is the successor to eZ Publish, an Open Source CMS in development since 1999. The previous iteration, eZ Publish 5, was a hybrid approach with old code as well as rewritten code. eZ Platform drops all the legacy code from the software and completes the transition to a complete new code base built on the Symfony2 Full Stack Framework. The content repository core and user interface are rewritten, but retain the same concepts as the previous eZ Publish software.
eZ Platform is built on the Symfony Full Stack Framework. Since eZ Platform is based on the complete framework, developers can integrate any Symfony extension (i.e. bundle) into eZ Platform to add more functionality and, vice versa, Symfony developers can integrate eZ into their Symfony projects. eZ Platform itself is--in Symfony terms--a number of bundles standing on top of Symfony which add features  such as:
eZ Platform itself is free software, but it also serves as the core of eZ Enterprise, eZ System's commercially supported content management system. eZ Enterprise consists of eZ Platform and eZ Studio--a set of additional tools for editors and marketers--along with professional services and support. eZ Studio is fully integrated into the same User Interface as eZ Platform. eZ Studio adds features for content creation and landing page management including automated content scheduling, drag-and-drop blocks and in-page editing using the APIs provided by eZ Platform. While eZ Studio is not open source, developers with access can customize and extend the toolset's landing page editor by building additional functionality.
