Cerebrum is a specialist in TYPO3 development, supporting clients locally in Melbourne, across Australia, and globally.

What is TYPO3?

TYPO3 CMS is an open-source enterprise content managmement system.

Unlike its commercial competitors, TYPO3 is an open source system. Open source stands for "open source code" and this means that the developers have chosen to make their code (the instructions that make the program work) open to the public. This allows other software developers to have a look at the code, develop new functionalities, improve the quality and feed back to the original author or group of developers. This also allows everyone to report problems or security vulnerabilities to the original authors which leads to a very fast development and results in often extremely stable and secure software. TYPO3 has a large world-wide community of developers with clients from all areas of business, securing its continual development and keeping it at the forefront of web technology.

Why we love it

While other web applications claim to power billions of personal blogs, very few systems really meet the requirements needed to successfully run a corporate-grade site and deserve to be named a Content Management System. And that's why we're proud to be a specialist TYPO3 development house. We are dedicated to continually develop, explore, and evolve our skills and capabilities to enhance, and create robust, reliable website solutions for our clients using the best tools available. For over 20 years, we have helped our clients build complex, highly functional, and sustainable websites using TYPO3.

We find TYPO3 provides the best platform for our clients' websites - an enterprise content management system that is highly configurable, secure, extensible, and maintainable. 


Our TYPO3 offer includes, but is not limited to:

  • Set up and configuration of TYPO3 sites
  • Technical and non-technical TYPO3 consultancy
  • Customised TYPO3 applications and solutions
  • Integration with other systems (e.g. CRM systems)
  • TYPO3 training/support (for editors, integrators, system administrators, developers)
  • Extensions given back to the TYPO3 community
  • TYPO3-optimised web-hosting
  • Migration of existing web-sites to TYPO3

More reasons to love TYPO3, the application runs on hundreds of thousands of servers worldwide, has been translated into over 45 languages, and is actively being developed within a vibrant international community of 1000's of users. The strong association and business structures provide a stable, supported, and secure future for TYPO3.

What are the benefits of TYPO3?

TYPO3 is a high-quality, user-friendly, and adaptive system if you need to create, manage, and ouput any kind of digital content. Content authors will find TYPO3 an easy-to-use, intuitive tool; allowing them to produce and maintain webpages and sophisticated functionality with just a few clicks. With TYPO3, everyone can participate in web-based communication and customer relations. It also includes internal messaging and workflow systems for shared authoring and collaboration.

TYPO3 CMS is a robust, proven technology choice that offers excellent security, supports regulatory compliance, and delivers better ROI for your digital projects. —typo3.com

TYPO3 is available for free and can be used by businesses without paying license fees. This is in stark contrast to proprietary software, for which you nearly always have to pay license fees or are restricted to non-business use. TYPO3 is created with an abundance mentality where all registered TYPO3 consultancies provide funding for the development of features which will eventually benefit the whole community. No-one keeps the best ideas for themselves which ensures that the "wheel" is not invented twice.
