A Partner’s Perspective on Certification: Part 1

Contributed by Ramy Nassar - Director of Business Development, Myplanet
You’re certainly not alone if you’re looking to build a new digital platform or application. There are literally tens of thousands of companies in North America lined up ready to help you achieve that vision. More often than not, these companies will use some form of open source software or platform, and when it comes to open-source platforms, the question is, how do you separate experience from embellishment? How can anyone tell the difference between experience and... Meer

Des sites qui tombent.…et d’autres pas.

Une semaine difficile…
La semaine dernière, en marge des terribles événements qui ont eu lieu en France, de très nombreux sites institutionnels ainsi que de nombreux sites de presse ont connu une grave défaillance (De nombreux sites de presse inaccessibles, lemonde.fr, 16 janvier 2015). Certains des plus importants médias français ont ainsi été indisponibles pendant plus d’une heure !
De l’Express à Mediapart, en passant par Le Parisien, 20 minutes,... Meer

Virtual Commerce Upstarts Hit the Bricks

Digital-first commerce pioneers make the move to the storefronts they were supposed to demolish.
In 2007 a new outdoor brand burst onto the scene ready to disrupt the retail world forever. An experienced management team comprised of former Patagonia and Nike executives “...set out to reinvent the way people shop, reshape the outdoor category, redesign the corporation—and inspire the wider business community to do the same”, according to FastCompany. They were going to save the world while reinventing retail as we know... Meer

Gartner vient de publier la version 2014 de son Magic Quadrant pour la gestion de contenu web (WCM).

Unlocking Business Growth Through a Unified Content and Commerce Strategy

This is the third post in an 8-part series called “Building a Content-First Organization." See posts one and two.
Developing a unified online experience is an important step for any company trying to hit what Kleiner Perkins’ Mary Meeker termed the Internet Trifecta (content+community+commerce) to differentiate its brand in an increasingly digitally dominated economy. That’s why creating a shared... Meer

A/B Testing: What It Is and How to Do It Right

No one likes to waste time or money on a web experience that doesn’t perform and convert. As marketers, it’s our job to determine what our audience wants to see and how they want to engage with us online. That’s where A/B testing comes in.
What is A/B testing?
A/B testing (often called split testing or A/B/n testing because you can have “n” variations as opposed to just two) allows you to compare different website experiences to see which one is resonating better with your visitors and will help you achieve the ultimate goal for your site, whether it’s revenue, email signups, ad clicks, etc...

Drupal Global Sprint Weekend - Contribute to Drupal 8

During the Drupal Global Sprint Weekend, local code sprints will be held over the weekend of January 17, 2015. The Drupal Global Sprint Weekend will focus on Drupal core, but as Drupal 8 becomes more polished, there's also plenty to be done in the world of contributed modules. Helping to port a module to D8 is a great way to get involved while learning what's new.
Why Contrib?
Historically, when a new major version of Drupal is released, it has taken a while for contrib modules to catch up with stable releases. This can cause... Meer

Content en Commerce integreren in 6 stappen

Steeds meer retailers en fabrikanten van merkproducten onderkennen de noodzaak om digitale content te integreren met hun commerce-activiteiten. Ze begrijpen dat het nodig is om af te stappen van het ‘tweedelingssyndroom’ waarbij de homepage van het merk en webwinkel door uiteenlopende teams en met behulp van verschillende technologische platforms worden beheerd. Ze willen consumenten een naadloze gebruikservaring bieden tijdens alle stadia van het aankoopproces, van het zoeken naar,... Meer

PHP: Getting the job done, really easily – meet Stephan Hochdörfer


Stephan Hochdörfer from bitExpert AG and I got the chance to sit down and chat in the event hotel lobby following his session (and my keynote address :-) at SymfonyLive Berlin, 2014.

Surprisingly, this podcast contains "the s-word" once. You have been warned. :-)

Why PHP?

Despite this very positive statement, "I discovered PHP and stuck with it because it helps me solve my problems on a daily basis," when we got to this part of Stephan's history in open source, his tone got a little... Meer

This is the second post in an 8-part series called "Building a Content-First Organization." See post one here.
More retailers and branded manufacturers are acknowledging the importance of integrating digital content and commerce operations. They realize they need to move away from the classic “two-site syndrome” -- where the brand site and the online store are separated by different technology... Meer

Security is Top of Mind for CIOs in 2015

On Sunday night, rather than eating queso dip and watching playoff football, I decided to read Piper Jaffray’s 2015 CIO survey, an annual survey that helps CIOs and other industry experts understand how technology and other trends influence the growth of their position and technology choices in the new year.
As the Product Marketing Manager for Acquia Cloud, this survey was interesting to me in a lot of ways as we’re continuously striving to bring the most secure, reliable and scalable cloud platform to market to make our customers successful.
In the report, 112 CIOs were asked questions... Meer

Acquia retrospective 2014

As is now a tradition for me, here is my annual Acquia retrospective, where I look back at 2014 and share what is on my mind as we start the new year. I take the time to write these retrospectives not only for you dear reader, but also for myself, because I want to keep a record of the changes we've gone through as a company and how my personal thinking is evolving from year to year. But I also write them for you, because you might be able to learn from my experiences or from analyzing the information provided. If you would like to, you can read my previous retrospectives:...

Full Circle: A Field Marketer’s Perspective on Digital Transformation

Last night, I was sitting on my couch checking up on email and saw this:

Helping organizations to be successful with digital transformation is the core of what I work on everyday. Last night, I was able to experience the full lifecycle of an Acquia site-deployment with a customer. I remember hearing when the opportunity was discovered; progress as our sales organization worked to identify what Intuit wanted to achieve; and reading the win report; and it all came full circle when a personal site-launch notification to help “take control of your money and get more out of life” came across my...

Explaining Drupal, the pragmatic choice – meet David Aponovich


David Aponovich knows the web content management business far beyond just the "Drupalsphere". I was thrilled when he joined Acquia from Forrester Research in 2014, since I believe his voice, experience, and insight can help convince more businesses of the benefits of using Drupal, especially given the upcoming release of Drupal 8. He and I sat down at DrupalCon Amsterdam – David's first Drupal community event – and talked about digital transformation from the "information superhighway" to today, corporations and open source software as a pragmatic choice, and how the definitions of...
