Technical Requirements

GOSS Content Management can be delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS) to provide a cost effective, secure and scaleable solution. However, if you would like to implement GOSS Content Management within your own hosting environment then hardware requirements will vary depending on the size of the site, type of database and predicted user traffic.



GOSS iCM works in all modern web browsers and any operating system capable of running them. Our recommended browsers are:

  • Chrome
  • Edge
  • Firefox
  • Internet Explorer 11 (Internet Explorer 10 is no longer a recommended browser for iCM

GOSS iCM still has limited support for older versions of Internet Explorer.
