Gone are the days when organizations can rely on a single online presence; the availability of omnichannel opportunities has paved the way for companies to build their digital strategy on a multitude of websites. Forrester Research recently surveyed technology, marketing, and business decision-makers about the state of their current digital portfolio and found that organizations on average manage 268 web and mobile properties across a...

Find Your ‘Aha!’ Moment at Acquia Engage 2015 Digital Business Conference

I had a call recently with a digital leader at a Silicon Valley tech giant, who said something to the effect that “until a year or two ago, I really didn’t realize the vast number and size of companies using Drupal.”
He’s gotten over his surprise, as he now directs one of the largest customer support communities in the world powered by Drupal on the Acquia Platform.
Everyone who’s “new to Drupal” has their own aha! moment. Perhaps it’s when you discover that sites like GE.com, Pfizer.com, and TeslaMotors.com all run on Drupal. Or you learn Weather.com, one of the top-traffic sites in the... Plus

The Fourth Digital Experience Government 'Must': Omnichannel

Government agencies have historically delivered digital experiences to citizens that are cumbersome and disjointed. Until recently it’s been an inherent, if not necessary, business trait given the information, data, and transactions shared between governments and citizens. There are more rules and regulations dictating what a government organization can and can’t do than apply to other industries, which has often been a barrier to delivering the kinds of digital experiences that citizens have in their everyday lives, and now expect from their governments. To meet those expectations, and the... Plus

Yes, Your Web Content Management System Should Run in the Cloud

Forrester Research recently published a report titled Should Your Web Content Management System Run In The Cloud? Download it here for free from Acquia. According to Forrester, the cloud Is finally coming to Web Content Management systems.
It’s true that nearly every web content management vendor now offers their product via some form of cloud delivery. But it’s important to looking beyond the simple cloud label to understand how vendors support the cloud. There are three common cloud deployment patterns:
Cloud hosting
The most common... Plus

Mobile Commerce: Making the Most of Mobile Context

Delivering excellent mobile commerce experiences is not just about mobile-friendly design, but also about mobile context – the right experience at the right time given what you know about the customer. In some cases, this is a unique experience to the mobile visitor.
Mobile’s role in the buying journey
While it’s not possible to predict every mobile visitor’s intent and stage of the buying process, there are clues you can use to tailor the experience.

How Acquia is addressing the explosion of sites

I believe that the "digitalization" of the world is a "megatrend" that will continue for decades. On the one hand, organizations are shifting their businesses online, often inventing new ways to do business. On the other hand, customers are expecting a better and smarter user experience online.

This has led to two important sub-trends: (1) the number of sites an organization is creating and managing is growing at a rapid clip, (2) so is the underlying complexity of each website.

Forrester Research recently surveyed large enterprises about their website portfolio and found that on average... Plus

Mobile Commerce: Responsive, Dynamic or Hybrid Design?

It’s clear that mobile matters, and mobile-friendly websites are table stakes. But what is the best approach for mobile commerce?
Death of m.dot
In the early days of mobile-targeted web design – circa 2009, mobile domains (m.dot or .mobi sites) were the norm. Home pages were nothing more than a list of menu links. Some sites, like Best Buy, offered only search tools and store locators with no browse navigation, product photos or checkout functionality. Mobile platform vendors like Usablenet, mPoria, and Digby powered over 80 percent of these early m-commerce sites, while the remainder were... Plus

Cracking Mobile Commerce Myths

There’s no question: Mobile commerce matters.
In addition to driving half of all ecommerce traffic, mobile accounted for 30 percent of all US retail ecommerce sales in a recent three-month period. For some retailers, mobile accounted for as much as 40 percent.
What’s more, approximately 40 percent of all... Plus

Giving back and making money

It's not easy to build an Open Source software company.
Canonical recently has made a change to its intellectual property policy. The new policy prevents developers from distributing altered binary versions of Ubuntu. Users are still allowed to distribute unaltered Ubuntu freely, but if they make changes to Ubuntu, Canonical wants developers to either go through a review process or remove all references to Canonical trademarks, Canonical logos, and proprietary software and recompile the Ubuntu archive...

Digital Experience Government Must #3: Implementing Personalization

Personalization for Government: Where to Start
The first steps of creating a personalization strategy involve observing your users and collecting basic user data. If you can find out basic demographic information, and a basic browsing history (both on your site and across the web), then you’ll start to understand not only what types of people are visiting your website, but why. Once you have enough background information, you can start to implement some personalization initiatives, like... Plus

Les critères de choix d’un fournisseur Drupal


Pour ceux qui n’ont qu’une connaissance superficielle de l’univers Drupal, il est difficile de comprendre le travail d’un spécialiste Drupal. Est-ce que tous les spécialistes Drupal font la même chose ? Ont-ils tous les mêmes compétences ? Offrent-ils tous les mêmes possibilités ? La réponse à toutes ces questions est non. En voici la raison : l’expertise des spécialistes Drupal – exactement comme les autres développeurs – peut se limiter à certaines fonctionnalités. Les services proposés par divers fournisseurs Drupal peuvent donc être sensiblement différents.
Si vous n’avez qu’une... Plus

Why Engage? A Skeptical Acquian's Change of Heart

We hosted our inaugural digital customer conference, Engage, in the fall of 2014. The event brought more than 500 customers, Acquians, partners, and other attendees together for three days of content-packed sessions, keynotes, and some crazy musical fun. Since the event went so well in its first year, we decided to do it again.
With the prevalence of conferences focusing on digital these days, it’s challenging to convey the unique value of a particular event. What’s the special value of this event? Why should business executives pay for... Plus
