About Ten & Two
Ten & Two got its start in the 90s, when founder Ken McCabe found himself repeatedly resolving similar content management issues for such content-rich sites as Nickelodeon, MTV, and Comedy Central. Ten & Two reviewed these engagements and created its Chassis CMS tool, building in best design practices, principles, and technologies. Ten & Two built Chassis CMS using a CCM-based approach, based on open source technologies.
This model realizes numerous advantages for Ten & Twos customers. Chassis CMSs CCM approach places content into discrete context-independent components, ready for assembly into documents on the fly. Decisions about presentation and use are implemented with XSL scripts and maintained apart from the content itself, which can be retrieved and reused throughout your site.
