Jadu is a content management system to enable non-technical management of web based content and electronic documents.

Company History

Originally founded by Suraj Kika and Richard Chamberlain in 1999, the system was first developed for the Department of Trade and Industry for the UK consultation portal for Oil and Gas and Renewable Energy. The Strategic Environmental Assessment was the UK's first fully online Government consultation process. [ [http://www.offshore-sea.org.uk Offshore-SEA] ]

The software developed for the Offshore-SEA then became Jadu Content Management Engine Version 1 — and was implemented for scientific organisations in the UK as a means to publish complex electronic documents generated in MS Word and PDF formats.

In 2001 the system was redeveloped in PHP and MySQL and a Version 2 was deployed for UK Government and Local Authorities. Based on the e-GIF standards, and using XForms, the system was deployed at the beginning of the first acceptance and adoption of Open Source platforms within Government. The Jadu system supports the Integrated Public Sector Vocabulary (IPSV) controlled vocabulary or taxonomy and is itself an XML taxonomy based CMS.
