Acquia a leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management

You might have read that Acquia was named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management. It's easy to underestimate the importance of this recognition for Acquia, and by extension for Drupal. If you want to find a good coffee place, you use Yelp. If you want to find a nice hotel in New York, you use TripAdvisor. Similarly, if a CIO wants to spend $250,000 or more on enterprise software, they consult an analyst firm like... Mehr

Beyond Marketing: My Highlights

As soon as I started reading Tim Walter’s new white paper, Beyond Marketing, recently posted on Acquia’s web site, I was glad I had a yellow highlighter handy. I use a digital marker, of course, but for me it serves the same purpose as the old, analog version -- the one that smells like homework: to capture ideas that are worth dwelling on. And there are plenty in this report. Walters, a partner and principal analyst with the... Mehr

“Content is Critical to Brand Differentiation” said everybody at shop.org.

If I had to choose one theme of this year’s shop.org annual summit, it would be ‘Content, Content, Content’. The summit started with REI CEO Jerry Stritzke where he described REI as a Storytelling Company. Starting with the brand’s origins as a community of climbers, he described the passion for the brand held by consumers and employees alike, with the passion fitting of the brand he described. He talked about REI.com as a ‘Catalyst for Discovery’ and his desire to make the site more than just a... Mehr

Why we’re dropping the “e” in eCommerce. And why you should too.

The rise of m-commerce, the struggles with social-commerce, the growing maturity of e-commerce, the integration of technology into physical commerce… it can be, no it is, overwhelming. As marketers, we feel the need to distinguish between the different types of platforms consumers use to research and purchase products. We have mobile teams responsible for developing shopping apps, and optimizing the mobile experience. We have social teams responsible for increasing engagement through social channels, promoting product and, sometimes, trying to figure out how to crack the code on social... Mehr

Transforming the Media and Entertainment Industry with Drupal

I’ll admit it. I was initially a skeptic. My colleague at NBCUniversal, Chris Herring, really wanted me to attend DrupalCon Chicago. It was 2011, and many of the developers and product managers across NBCUniversal had started to advocate passionately for Drupal. Chris really wanted me to experience firsthand the community and all it had to offer. We’d historically been a ‘build it ourselves’ type shop, but he convinced... Mehr

Mike Meyers explains – Help Drupal and it will help you: contribute!

Michael E. Meyers, VP Large Scale Drupal at Acquia, knows better than most how contributing to the open source project you are relying on to build or improve your business will pay off. He and his team did just that when they successfully built and sold NowPublic.com – the first venture capital funded, Drupal-based startup – while making massive contributions to the Drupal project along the way. He and I invite you not only to use Drupal, but also to make it better and to get involved with its community. If you're only using it without... Mehr

The Case for Drupal at Small and Mid-Sized Colleges

Drupal is used to run some of the largest web sites at some of the largest universities in the world. Massive institutions like University of Minnesota (64,000 students), Ohio State University (65,000 students), Austin Community College (70,000 students), King Khalid University (75,000 students), Arizona State University (80,000 students), and even University of Phoenix (250,000 students), employ Drupal to power some portion (if not all) of their digital strategy and they see Drupal as a valuable differentiator in their effort to enhance the online experience for all their constituents. But... Mehr

Pourquoi la transformation digitale est-elle cœur des préoccupations?

Récemment, j’ai lu les 97 pages du rapport Innovation du New York Times, un document (censé rester interne) destiné à aider le Times à devenir une entreprise plus concurrentielle dans le secteur turbulent de la presse. Bien que le Times soit toujours une référence en terme de journalisme de qualité, ses contenus peinent à parvenir directement aux lecteurs. Ils sont souvent réutilisés dans d’autres publications comme le Huffington Post, ou sous d’autres formes comme... Mehr

Two Lessons Learned from the State of Oregon vs. Oracle Lawsuit

Oregon recently filed a lawsuit against Oracle over the failed deployment of the “Cover Oregon” healthcare exchange website. The State spent over $240m on the development and deployment of this portal, and the lawsuit seeks to reclaim over $200m in damages. Oregon claims it was falsely promised a “95% out-of-the-box” solution for its portal, and that Oracle’s actions amount to a “a pattern of racketeering activity.” Oracle counters these allegations by...

The Australian Government and I tell you: “Why Drupal”

I had the privilege of being one of two keynote speakers alongside the Australian Government CTO, John Sheridan, at the 2014 Drupal Gov Day in the Australian capital, Canberra. The Australian Government has announced it is building its “GovCMS” and centering on a single technology: Drupal implemented on a standardized, public-cloud-based platform. Drupal in the guise of GovCMS will be the... Mehr

Retail and Non-Profits Have More In Common Than You Would Think

One of the main reasons I got into marketing, and specifically marketing for commerce, is because people fascinate me. How does a consumer make a purchase decision? Why then? Why that product? Why is Target ‘Le Target’ while Wal-Mart is ‘Wally World’? I’ve spent my whole career digging through those questions, only to come up with more. A few weeks ago my Facebook feed, along with yours I’m sure, became jammed with people dumping an ice bucket over their head to raise money for ALS. My co-worker Sean even wrote an Acquia blog about it. Prior to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, I’d never really... Mehr

Why A Former Forrester Analyst Is Betting His Career on Acquia and Drupal

I recently left my role as senior analyst at Forrester Research, where I helped to lead research on web content management and digital experience tools, to take a new challenge at Acquia. The change is still fresh enough that nearly every day someone asks me, “Why Acquia?” There’s no single answer -- 101 factors fuel any job change. Here, I saw the chance to make an impact by helping to highlight Acquia’s innovation in delivering a cloud-based platform built on open-source Drupal web content... Mehr

An eCommerce Retrospective: Ten Summoner's Tales, Twenty Years Later

20 years ago the world changed. On August 11, 1994 Phil Brandenberger paid $12.48 plus shipping for Sting’s “Ten Summoner’s Tales” and made history as the very first online shopper. One year later Amazon.com and AuctionWeb (later to become eBay) both embarked on a historic journey to become the power-houses they are today. 20 years ago. Wow. Not only does that make me feel incredibly old, but I can’t... Mehr
