Jahia 7: The Rise of Digital Industrialization

There are few surprises in today’s official release of Jahia 7 — but only because Jahia disclosed most of its features and functionality during JahiaOne, its international user conference in Paris this past February.

While the general release of Jahia 7 is interesting, what is just as interesting for future developments of this open source content management system (CMS) vendor is the development of its vision and strategy around what it calls Digital Industrialization. 

Acquia Lift Makes Drupal Sites Smarter, Revenues Bigger

It’s every marketer’s dream — delivering the right offer, to the right visitor, at the right time, through the right channel, to drive greater revenue. Simple to say, not so easy to do.

Consider your own experience when visiting websites. How often are you presented with compelling offers that you’re willing to take action on? If you’re like me, not very often.

This could actually change in the near future. Earlier today, Acquia, provider of products, services and technical support for creating web experiences with the open source CMS Drupal, announced Acquia Lift, an optimization platform that promises to make websites smarter, marketers more productive and revenues greater.

If it works as promised and is widely accepted by the Drupal community, you — even as a consumer —could benefit from Acquia’s latest innovation. After all, there are more than million of Drupal sites on the web today.

Drupal vs. Joomla: An Engineer's Take

If you're evaluating open source content management solutions (CMS), two in particular -- Drupal and Joomla -- stick out for being widely adopted and lauded by companies and developers.

Both of them are full featured Web CMS platforms. If your business only needs a simple blog or wiki, both will feel bloated and you would be better served with a simpler platform such as Wordpress. If your business requires complex content hierarchy, tagging and authoring, you are now in the realm of these two platforms.

Search Continues to Be Business Critical in 2014

A year ago I suggested that search would become business critical in 2013, and I think my forecast was in line with reality. Certainly the Findwise 2013 Search and Findability Report indicated that more organizations were working on a search strategy in 2013, and that compared with the 2012 report, businesses displayed a greater degree of commitment to getting the best out of investment in search applications.

Inside the Road to Acquia's Possible IPO

The open-source model for software is shaking up the Web Content Management System (CMS) business. One company that has greatly benefited from this is Acquia, one of the Boston area's most successful startups.

What's New in December for Open-Source CMS

Who Coined the Term 'Enterprise Data Hub' and Does It Matter?

Information Management, Who Coined the Term 'Enterprise Data Hub' and Does It Matter?“That’s not fair, it was my idea first ..." Anyone who has kids has heard that line before, and it seems that some people don’t grow out of it.

Now granted, sometimes there are good reasons for these arguments and accusations. Apple says Samsung "slavishly" copied the iPhone and iPad in its Galaxy line of mobile phones and tablet, and the courts agree that its claim has merit. And the so-called Rockstar consortium, made up of Microsoft, Apple, Sony and others, is suing Google over patents.

Linux' 22th Birthday Is Commemorated - Subtly - by Creator
