"Where Content Management Meets Social Media"
Your content is your business.
As the lines between content technologies continue to blur, the business implications of your content strategies need to be crystal clear. You need to make your web content part of an integrated platform for customers, partners, and employees. You need to understand which social media outlets fit into your overall content and communication channels. And you have to hold down costs for content management and delivery in ways that don't slow down your company's ability to innovate and grow.

Collaboration and social networking are driving the fortunes of a pair of up-and-coming open source platforms. In content management for the Web, Drupal is conquering new territory as companies look to build Web sites designed from the ground up to support social interaction. On the enterprise content management front, Alfresco has made collaboration and interoperability the keystones of its platform.

ZDNet Names Drupal as a Top Community Platform

Dion Hinchcliffe over at ZDNet has named Drupal as one of the top ten leading platforms for creating online communities, one small notch behind Joomla. The first part of Dion's post explains the current state of online community building practices and technology. Dion does a lot of consulting with top companies seeking to build communities around their products and services, and his insights are on target.
Although I would have put Drupal in the #1 spot, I really like Dion's brief description of Drupal:

Forrester Research: Enterprises Should Keep an Eye on Drupal

Acquia presented at the Enterprise 2.0 conference in Boston last week, and Jeff Whatcott, who manned the Acquia stand, writes in a blog entry that most of the corporate types swinging past his booth had no idea what Drupal was.

Acquia’s mission, or course, is about changing all that, and making the open source Social Publishing (… as they insist on calling it…) platform a viable Enterprise content management/community product. If you remember, the company told us at Drupalcon Boston in March how they intend to achieve that. The first step consists of professional wrapping of the Drupal product, and will come in the shape of the subscription-based ‘Carbon’ product. Carbon consists of Drupal 6.x core and about 30 modules, some of which have been developed by the Drupal community and then vetted and tested by Acquia, with a sprinkling of modules developed by the company itself. The result is calculated to be analogous to a Red Hat enterprise subscription; a cast-iron, bug-free and supported version of a community-built product.

The second major product announcement in March was ‘Spokes’, and is a network service. Spokes will offer subscribers automatic updates, security updates and patches, personalized alerts and other remote services.

We were wondering how things were progressing along these lines, so we talked with Director of Marketing Bryan House, and got a progress report and picked up some details on upcoming products. The good new is that things are on schedule for the announced Fall launch of the company’s first products. The (ever-growing) Acquia team is beavering away on building the eCommerce store, on Network Services and on testing and packaging for the Carbon product. We talked about some cool new ideas for Acquia’s network services, and about a whole new departure for Acquia: Drupal certification and training.

CMS Report

You and I have a dirty little secret. Many of the Web applications that we call content management systems (Web CMS) are not really content management systems. Huh? A lot of this confusion stems from the difficulty most of us have in answering what should be a simple question, what is a content management system? Scott Abel, The Content Wranger, has noted in previous comments that one of the problems in discussions about content management is that we really lack a common definition of CMS.
