A Tale of Two Roadmaps: Drupal vs Jive

During the era before the marketplace began moving at lightspeed, having a “roadmap” laying out the coming features offered by a software vendor was seen as a plus.

Jive made social business real, and its benefits quantifiable.

Drupal Commons 2.5 released: U/X improvements along with Question & Answers

The Commons team has released Commons 2.5 today. This is a significant release for a number of reasons, including some significant U/X improvements. We also added Question & Answer functionality which is very important for both internal and external communities.

This was validated in the usability testing, discussions with users and a survey of successful community sites.
