Moderne Content Managementsysteme sind der Motor interessanter und dynamischer Websites. Sie entkoppeln Programmierung und Inhaltserstellung, bereiten Daten dynamisch auf und passen Online-Auftritte automatisch an die Endgeräte der Nutzer an.

In den letzten zehn Jahren hat der Bereich "Content im Internet" eine Entwicklung durchgemacht, die so schnell wohl in keiner anderen Industrie möglich ist. Aus einfachen Websites in simplem HTML wurden Medien-Plattformen mit Texten, Bildern, Audio und Videos, deren Inhalte nahtlos verknüpft sind und auf den unterschiedlichsten Endgeräten konsumiert werden. Entsprechend sind Websites heute eine fundamentale Komponente der Geschäftstätigkeit eines Unternehmens. Der Online-Auftritt ist Visitenkarte, virtuelles Schaufenster und oft Verkaufsportal der jeweiligen Firma. Selbst wer keinen direkten Geschäften im Web nachgeht, kann es sich kaum leisten, eine veraltete oder fehlerhafte Website zu betreiben.
Schluss mit statischen Websites

Websites sind keine Einbahnstraße mehr. Die Kommunikation läuft dynamisch zwischen Nutzer und Anbieter ab. Firmen betreiben Blogs, integrieren Bilderstrecken, Podcasts oder Videos während Kunden und Nutzer kommentieren, Artikel in sozialen Netzwerken verlinken und mit den Mitarbeitern diskutieren.

Open Source und wirtschaftliche Interessen: Schließt nicht das eine das andere aus? Nein, sagt Jeffrey McGuire, Open Source Evangelist bei Acquia. Warum Unternehmertum und Open Source eine perfekte Kombination sind, hat er auf der re:publica erklärt.

Jeffrey McGuire: Open Source führt zu wirtschaftlichem Erfolg

Unternehmen müssen wirtschaftlich denken, schließlich müssen wir am Ende des Tages alle unsere Mieten bezahlen. Das ist auch Jeffrey „Jam“ McGuire völlig klar. Der in Köln lebende US-Amerikaner arbeitet als Open-Source-Evangelist für Acquia , ein Software-Unternehmen, das sich auf das Content-Management-Framework Drupal spezialisiert hat. Für McGuire steht die bei Open-Source-Projekten selbstverständliche kostenlose Bereitstellung der eigenen Arbeitsergebnisse dem Ziel der Profitabilität nicht entgegen.

Im Gegenteil: In McGuires Augen sorgt Open-Source-Software für mehr Sicherheit und Flexibilität im Umgang mit den eigenen IT-Lösungen. Hinzu kommt ein zeitlicher Vorteil, denn wer auf eine große Entwickler-Community und ihre Ergebnisse zugreifen kann, reagiert im Falle von Problemen oder notwendigen Anpassungen im Zweifel schneller als die Konkurrenz.

CMO Interview: Marketing Open Source (to Marketers) [April 24, 2014]

By Rohan Pearce

The CMO of Massachusetts-based Acquia wants to take the open source software message to other marketers

It's a product that costs nothing, is up against entrenched competitors, and exists in a category that enterprises have in the past been wary of. All in all, marketing open source software to other marketers was never going to be an easy job.

So you might forgive Tom Wentworth if he was a little wary of taking up the role of chief marketing officer at Acquia. But the CMO says that when he received a message from a recruiter asking if he was interested in the position, he jumped at the chance. "I couldn't have dialled back the number faster when I saw him asking about Acquia," Wentworth says.

Wentworth took up the role at Boston-based Acquia 17 months ago. The company provides software and services based on Drupal: A well-established, modular open source content management system.

Although it is Wentworth's first experience at an open source company, he has held marketing roles in other content management software vendors for about 15 years. Before Acquia, he was CMO at Ektron, and prior to that he was Web solutions evangelist at Interwoven, which was acquired in 2009 by Autonomy — which itself was snapped up by HP in 2011 (a somewhat fraught acquisition ).

Wentworth joined Acquia in December 2012. The decision was a "if you can't beat them, join them", he says. "As somebody's who's been in the market for so long, I saw the clear shift to open source and I saw the disruption Drupal was having in the market and really wanted to be a part of it.

"When I look at the future of integrated digital experiences and how I see CMOs are changing how they adapt digital technology, I think Drupal is so strongly suited for that and I had to find a way to get here."

It's hard to imagine a company these days that isn't using open source software somewhere, whether it's Linux running a company's print and web servers, the Firefox browser on user desktops, or the Android operating system on mobile devices. In, fact, there are now more than a million different open source projects, according to Black Duck Software, a maker of open source management tools and owner of the Ohloh open source software directory. And open source continues to grow. According to an SAP research report, the number of open source projects roughly doubles every 14 months. But not all open source projects are created equal. According to Ohloh, for the 100,375 projects for which activity information is available, around 80 percent were listed as having low activity, very low activity or were completely inactive...

The success or failure of any particular open source project depends strongly on the community surrounding it – the developers who contribute code, the testers, the documentation writers, the people who answer questions in support forums, and the end users. There are a number of ways to gauge the size and activity level of an open source project's community. Ohloh offers one tool. Another approach is to go to the project's home page or the site where it's hosted and check out the history of code commits and the activity on the discussion boards.

Dries Buytaert, Oprichter Drupal en CTO Acquia: “Personalisatie is Volgende Internetmijlpaal” [April 16, 2014]

Submitted on

Customer Talk

“Een website is al lang geen aanhangsel van een bedrijf meer, vaak is de site de kern van je organisatie.” Dat stelt Dries Buytaert, oprichter van het open source cms Drupal en cto bij het eveneens door hem opgerichte bedrijf Acquia. Alles draait volgens hem om goede digitale ervaringen en die kun je niet bieden met standaard content. Klanten leren kennen, profielen opbouwen en persoonlijke content bieden is volgens Buytaert de sleutel tot succes.

De Belg Dries Buytaert ontwikkelde het open source content management systeem (cms) Drupal veertien jaar geleden vanaf zijn studentenkamer. Hij ontwikkelde het systeem vooral omdat hij wilde leren over de technologie achter websites en daarnaast had hij behoefte aan een berichtensysteem. Veertien jaar later is zijn berichtensysteem uitgegroeid tot een grote cms-oplossing en is Buytaert chief technology officer (cto) bij Acquia; het door hem opgerichte bedrijf dat technische ondersteuning biedt aan Drupal-gebruikers. Acquia groeide in de afgelopen jaren uit tot een groot bedrijf. Het hoofdkantoor staat in Burlington, Massachusetts, in de Verenigde Staten, maar in de Benelux zijn ondertussen zo’n vijftien medewerkers actief.

Meer doen met minder
Het grootste verschil met andere enterprise cms-oplossingen is dat Drupal open source is. Buytaert: “Enerzijds betekent dit dat Drupal een softwarelicentie is die iedereen gratis kan gebruiken en anderzijds kunnen ze de software niet alleen gratis gebruiken, ook krijgt iedereen gratis toegang tot de broncode.” Dit gegeven kan marketeers volgens Buytaert helpen bij hun huidige uitdaging. “Marketeers moeten steeds meer doen met minder middelen en met Drupal zit je niet vast aan een softwarepakket met vaste functionaliteiten. Je kunt alle tools die je nodig hebt zelf toevoegen”, aldus Buytaert.

Volgens Buytaert is Drupal succesvol, omdat er zo’n grote groep ontwikkelaars actief is. Er is een community van ruim 10.000 ontwikkelaars die Drupal continu verbeteren en uitbreiden met nieuwe modules. Hierdoor kunnen nieuwe ontwikkelingen in marketingland snel opgepakt worden door de marketeer. Buytaert: “Waar gebruikers van een ‘vaste’ softwareoplossing vaak jaren moeten wachten op bijvoorbeeld een nieuwe functionaliteit voor Pinterest, was deze module binnen Drupal in zeer korte tijd klaar voor gebruik.”

By Tom Erickson, Acquia CEO

Summary: Ever-popular among developers, open source technology has moved away from the fringes of tech right to the center of the enterprise, thanks to its high level of security and agility.

In the span of just a few years, open source has produced businesses that are incredibly attractive to the investment community. In 2012, open source venture investment jumped 80 percent over the prior year with $553 million invested, compared to $307 million in 2011. VCs have flocked to darlings like MongoDB, Open Stack, Cloudera, Puppet Labs and Hortonworks because these companies are solving incredibly difficult challenges in the cloud and big data arena faster than any proprietary software vendor could.

So why the big increase in interest now? Open source software has been around for years, in many cases implemented on the fringes by developers who prefer the freedom and flexibility of contributing to the evolution of the platforms with which they choose to work. There were even early glimmers of promise; for example, Linux proved to be a fast, effective server platform for many businesses before it grew to be one of the largest open source communities and the third-largest web client operating system in the world.

But today, open source has crossed over from a niche techie outlier to a driving force for businesses.

Corner Office, By Adam Bryant

This interview with Tom Erickson, chief executive of Acquia, an open-source software company, was conducted and condensed by Adam Bryant.

Any leadership lessons early in your life?

I grew up in a very small town in Wisconsin, a classic Scandinavian town where it wasn’t encouraged to brag. My father was a leader just by virtue of his personality. He ran a store that’s still in the family. He was president of the City Council, president of the school board, and was a leader of the business association. He was one of those quiet leaders who just did his thing.

He had a very different leadership style than me, because he was blessed with a patience that I don’t have. He was able to help people, over an extended period, think about things differently. We were one of the very first schools in our part of the state to receive a computer. My dad had been really active about saying, “We need to be on the forefront of what’s next.” I glued myself to that computer.

What about early management experience?

I got a job out of university with a small company called PSDI. I had eight other job offers, but I chose them because they said, “You’ll be promoted if you work hard.” Within a year, they sent me to Australia to open an office there. I was 23.

I was a technical guy with an engineering background, but I learned how to sell there. That was probably a pivotal point in my career — learning that it wasn’t magic. Coming from a small town, I just assumed that there were certain tracks in life, and that moving across them was hard. But I learned that I could sell.

FedRAMP OnRamp Seeks to Ease Path to Secure Government Clouds [March 14, 2014]

By Rich Miller

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Ordering a pizza over the Internet is easy. Provisioning compliant cloud services for federal government agencies is hard.

Steve O’Keeffe would like to change that. O’Keeffe is the founder of MeriTalk, a public/private partnership focused on improving government IT, which has launched a new tool to help federal agencies find cloud providers that have received security certifications under The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).

The FedRAMP OnRamp was launched Thursday at the Data Center Brainstorm, a conference at the Newseum that brought together IT managers from federal agencies, along with representatives of leading vendors and service providers to the government sector.

“The challenge with FedRAMP is that it hasn’t been particularly transparent until now,” said O’Keeffe. “There are different flavors of FedRAMP, and they’re all about risk management.”

Cloud First, But Only With FedRAMP

FedRAMP is designed to centralize the process of certifying vendors to offer cloud computing services that meet the strict security requirements of federal agencies. Cloud providers must gain FedRAMP certification to provide cloud services to federal agencies. Without FedRAMP, service providers would need to individually certify cloud installations at each agency they serve.

That would be an expensive undertaking. MeriTalk estimates the average cost for the government to perform a FedRAMP cloud security certification at $250,000. Using FedRAMP has already saved service providers more than $37.5 million in certification costs, according to estimates from MeriTalk and the General Services Administration.

That doesn’t mean that it’s always user-friendly. One of the goals of the FedRAMP OnRamp is to provide quick access to information about which companies have gained certification as Cloud Service Providers. That number currently stands at 14: AINS, Inc., Akamai, Amazon, AT&T, Autonomic Resources, CGI, Concurrent Technologies, HP, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Oracle, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Another 15 cloud providers are currently in the FedRAMP approval process, including Acquia Inc., CA Technologies, CenturyLink Technology Solutions, Clear Government Solutions (CGS), Economic Systems, Fiberlink, HP, Layered Tech Government Solutions, Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce.com, SecureKey Technologies Inc., Verizon Terremark, Virtustream, and VMware.

This morning, Jay Batson, the co-founder and former chief executive at Acquia and an active startup mentor, launched a volunteer project he’s been working on for awhile, Boston TechScene.

TechScene is an interactive map that gives detailed information on almost every tech company in the Boston area. Batson first came up with the idea to have a detailed map of Boston’s tech ecosystem while realizing that, as he said in an interview, “The sense that there is a lot going on, but it is hard to get a grasp of it.”

In a blog he wrote last year on his site, Startup DJ, Batson noticed that there seems to be a growing shift of tech companies from the suburbs to downtown Boston. In the blog, he proposed an official branding of the corridor surrounding the Red Line, as The Boston Tech Line. He believes the movement of startups close to MBTA stations between Central Square and Broadway (I’d say even further out, like Alewife to Broadway), needs more attention and needs to be owned by the tech community.

Thanks a Million, Drupal [March 4, 2014]

More than a million websites are powered by the open source CMS

Drupal, an open source content management system, now powers more than 1 million websites, according to figures released today. As of 15 February, 1,005,489 websites were powered by the CMS, according to the Drupal Association, a non-profit organisation that stewards the project.

(The figure was generated by an automated Drupal.org tool, and doesn't include sites running on versions earlier than 6.0.)

Some 12 per cent of the world's top 100,000 website have been built with Drupal, according to research by Builtwith Research cited by the Drupal Association.

It's heady stuff for an open source project born out of the desire of its creator, Dries Buytaert, to experiment with Web technologies.

"When I started Drupal, honestly I didn't have a master plan at all," Buytaert told Computerworld Australia in an interview last year.

"I started Drupal as a message board because I felt it was fun to build and we could actually use it in our student dorm. That kind of evolved into an experimental platform for me so I could experiment with different kinds of Web technologies from RSS feeds to blogging to other things.

"Eventually I moved my website from an internal, intranet kind of forum to the public Internet and that actually attracted an audience of people interested in the future of the Web."

Visitors to his site had a range of suggestions for modifications. "And so eventually I said, 'You know what — instead of me doing all the work how about I just give you the source code and then you can add these things yourself and feel free to send me back a patch'," Buytaert said.

"I kind of slapped the GPL licence on it, because that's what I knew from working on the Linux kernel, and I probably spent about 30 seconds thinking of a name — 'call it Drupal' — and uploaded a zipfile to my website for other to download...

"I had worked hard on it for a year and I was kind of proud of what I built, but I never expected a whole lot of people to adopt it."
