CMS Report - 25 July, 2014 - 12:05

Teams of on site developers would be forever working on these intricate and resource hungry corporate performance management (CPM) systems to get everything working as it should whilst senior management kept on ploughing the budget into its upkeep. Why were they doing this? Because a properly implemented CPM software solution can be an incredibly powerful tool indeed.

In a world where security threats seem to rise up every day, protecting vital business data is more important than ever before.

Infographic: DIY with CMS as a Service

CMS Report - 21 July, 2014 - 09:57

Over the past few years, we've talked plenty about Weebly, Drupal Gardens, WordPress.com and other hosted content management systems intended to "just work" out of the Cloud. Considering there are 16 million new websites added to the web every month, it's safe to assume that website design is a thriving business. But what about these DIY site builders? Is the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) platform they offer ever a viable replacement for professional expertise?

The team at WhoIsHostingThis dives into these questions and more with their latest infograpic: Wicked WYSIWYG: What About Those DIY Websites? In this Infographic they compare Wix, Weebly, and SnapPages. You can find this infographic embedded below the fold.

WordPress 4.0 Beta 2

Wordpress - 18 July, 2014 - 21:15

WordPress 4.0 Beta 2 is now available for download and testing. This is software still in development, so we don’t recommend that you run it on a production site. To get the beta, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”). Or you can download the beta here (zip).

For more of what’s new in version 4.0, check out the Beta 1 blog post. Some of the changes in Beta 2 include:

  • Further refinements for the the plugin installation and media library experiences.
  • Updated TinyMCE, which now includes better indentation for lists and the restoration of the color picker.
  • Cookies are now tied to a session internally, so if you have trouble logging in, #20276 may be the culprit.
  • Various bug fixes (there were nearly 170 changes since last week).

If you think you’ve found a bug, you can post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums. Or, if you’re comfortable writing a bug report, file one on the WordPress Trac. There, you can also find a list of known bugs and everything we’ve fixed.

How MDM Can Address BYOD Security for the Enterpirse

CMS Report - 17 July, 2014 - 10:00

Who doesn’t like the idea of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) for business? Having employees use their own personal devices for work sounds like a great idea. For one thing, they’ll be more productive as they are already familiar with their devices. They’ll also be more satisfied with their work since they won’t have to struggle with learning how to operate a new smartphone or tablet. Plus, companies can save on costs since they won’t need to buy devices for their employees. So what’s the downside? For many business leaders, the chief concern no matter the BYOD policies enacted is that of security. With employees using their own devices, that opens up more avenues for vital company data to be compromised. That’s why so many businesses now are turning to mobile device management (MDM) systems as a way to address these pressing security issues.
