Announcing The Aaron Winborn Award to honor amazing community members

In honor of long-time Drupal contributor Aaron Winborn (see his recent Community Spotlight), whose battle withAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) (also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is coming to an end later today, theCommunity Working Group, with the support of the Drupal Association, would like to announce the establishment of the Aaron Winborn Award.

This will be an annual award recognizing an individual who demonstrates personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community. It will include a scholarship and stipend to attend DrupalCon and recognition in a plenary session at the event. Part of the award will also be donated to the special needs trust to support Aaron's family on an annual basis.

Thanks to Hans Riemenschneider for the suggestion, and the Drupal Association executive board for approving this idea and budget so quickly. We feel this award is a fitting honor to someone who gave so much to Drupal both on a technical and personal level.

Thank you so much to Aaron for sharing your personal journey with all of us. It’s been a long journey, and a difficult one. You and your family are all in our thoughts.

CMS Industry Working Together to Standardize Personalized Web and Digital Experience

24 March, 2015 - 21:20

Standardizing personal experience sounds impersonal, doesn't it? Yet, that's what we're talking about here and there are plenty of software folks believing it's the right time for such an effort. When companies manage or utilize a number of systems involved with customer experience management, there is a need for those systems to transfer data from one system to the next. It is a huge challenge for CIOs, trying to streamline heterogeneous technologies and the data and transactions flowing from each solutions from their information system, while at the same time avoiding losing control over the collected data.

Working together, Jahia and Enonic have launched a new project at the OASIS international consortium to develop a standard that will enable the creation, management and delivery of personalized web and digital experiences. This initiative lead to the creation of the OASIS Context Server (CXS) Technical Committee (TC). Think of this effort similar to what brought us Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) but instead of a standard for content, we're talking about a standard for personalized data.

With 3.4.1, Joomla's developers have resolved nearly 150 issues with Joomla 3.4.

The How to Establish a BYOD Policy Infographic

18 March, 2015 - 10:47

It sound simple, give your employees the opportunity to bring their own devices to work. The company can perhaps be less aggressive in their cyclical replacements of hardware and your employee is happy because they don't have to lug around two devices, theirs and yours. I absolutely like the concept of Bring Your Own Device. But implementing BYOD and benefiting from BYOD isn't so easy. As an IT manager, it scares me that the employee's device may have control over the company's software and device. As an employee, it scares me even more that company's software could control my device and have access to my personal data. At the end of the day, this only goes well if you have established a good BYOD policy for your business.

Attached below is an infographic provided to us by StudyWeb. Want to convince your company to allow you to bring your own laptop to the office, or maybe you're considering implementing a BYOD policy at your company? Check out the pros and cons below, and use the guide to assist you in creating an official policy that will help protect your company from the pitfalls of BYOD.

Moving to the Cloud? Take a Deep Dive for Full Benefit

17 March, 2015 - 10:24

It’s likely clear to most companies by now that any realistic view of the future of the business world involves cloud computing in some way. It’s difficult to ignore the variety of benefits that come from adopting the cloud, including more productivity from employees, more business agility, and, of course, significant cost savings. Even with these advantages in mind, many companies still feel a reluctance to make the cloud part of their operations. A move to the cloud is certainly a significant change, one which should not be considered lightly. While many of these reluctant businesses won’t dispute the benefits of cloud computing, they may have trouble seeing how to maximize those benefits to make such a transition worth it. The answer is to take a “deep dive” into the cloud.

Delivering innovation through service set to dominate European IT agenda

10 March, 2015 - 18:31

London, 10 March 2015 - Creating everything as a service (XaaS) and delivering innovation is set to be the major driver of IT development this year as XaaS becomes the preferred consumption model for enterprises. In its conference sessions, the European Software and Solutions Summit (incorporating the eighth European ISV Convention) will feature speakers from Gartner, HP, Interoute, Oracle, Salesforce.com and Verizon delivering their visions of how this changes how users buy IT, who buys it and how it is paid for.

More and more, businesses expect IT to enable their staff to work wherever they are located and via whatever device is most appropriate, says Duncan Campbell Senior Director, EG Alliances Marketing and Business Development Hewlett-Packard Company who is one of the presenters. “They want to have technology on-demand that can scale and is secure, PLUS pay only for what they consume. They want IT to innovate with the line of business to enable them to transform their processes and the user experience. Those IT departments that do not engage with the business will not be relevant, and their budgets will be impacted.”

Mailbag: DCG and Constellation Working Together for Clients Navigating the Disruption

10 March, 2015 - 01:58

Scott Liewehr emailed me today announcing that Digital Clarity Group and Constellation Research, Inc. are forming a strategic alliance to better serve their clients. Scott is CEO of Digital Clarity Group and it's no secret CMS Report is an admirer of both him and his company. Yet Scott's email still surprised me. Why would DCG, rising among the ranks among analyst firms, strike an alliance with Constellation?

The press release that accompanied Scott's email gives reasons for the strategic alliance, but I'll add one observation of my own. Both DCG and Constellation likely recognize they share the same understanding of how legacy research firms are failing their clients and believe a fresh approach to handling "digital disruption" is necessary. An understanding that can easily translates to the buyer seeking out this kind of research that two heads are better than one.
