Top Exec: Open Source and Proprietary are not Sworn Enemies

13 hours 27 min ago

Paul Rubens’ February article in CIO magazine, 7 Reasons Not to Use Open Source Software, has received quite the backlash in open source circles. I’d like to take a moment to add my own two cents, but I won’t be fanning the flames of the hardline open source fire. Let me be clear—I take issue with this article, but I don’t disagree with most of it. Instead, I think it only tells part of the story, failing to give open source credit where it’s due.

14 April, 2014 - 10:27

"After under-buying and over-buying, the most common mistake I see in buying a CMS is looking at the wrong list of vendors. The WCM marketplace is saturated and hard to navigate, in truthfulness. Many organizations fall victims to this complexity and chose from completely wrong tools."

Irina Guseva, Senior Analyst for the Real Story Group, "5 Minutes With Irina Guseva", CMS Wire, April 8, 2014.

How BYOD and Big Data are Changing Marketing

8 April, 2014 - 10:24

For years, when it came to working in the office, an employee would need to use whatever equipment was provided by the company. The costs of the computers and other devices were the business’s responsibility, but once the equipment was in the employee’s hands, he or she was responsible for what happened to it. In recent years, however, a new trend has emerged that has changed the landscape of how companies conduct their business. It’s called Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and it’s also changing how the world of marketing works.

Three New CMS Releases: ImpressPages, Jahia, and Umbraco

4 April, 2014 - 16:25

Given the flurry of product announcements this week, my desk is stacked high with press releases and requests for review. The most notable of these recent announcements are for ImpressPages 4.0, Jahia 7, and Umbraco 7.1. Each of these content management systems deserve their own review. However, this is a Friday and time isn't on my side. So, I thought at the least there would be value in mentioning the release of these products and give you the option to follow up on your own for additional information.

Mailbag: DPCI Announces the DPSBridge Module for Drupal

3 April, 2014 - 10:53

A few days ago, I received an advance copy DPCI's press release announcing that DPCI has contributed an open source module to integrate Drupal with the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. As far as I can tell, the Drupal 7 module is currently a sandbox project  but I assume it will eventually be released as a full module once the code is worked out. 

I usually don't blog about specific modules or plugins of a CMS unless I've actually used them for myself or they're huge to the story of the CMS. However, I owe mention of this module to Joe Bachana, President and Founder of DPCI. Several years ago, he invited me to sit on a Drupalcon panel discussing enterprise trends in content management. Besides Joe and myself the panel included Bryan House, Acquia and moderator Jacob Morgan, Chess Media Group.  That panel was a milestone event for me (huge audience) and forced me to acknowledge that I not only had a voice in this industry but also people willing to listen.

So without hesitation, DPCI's press release regarding their new Drupal module follows.

My CMS-Connected Review of Magnolia CMS

25 March, 2014 - 10:49

I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to put out a plug for my review of the Magnolia CMS on CMS-Connected last month. This was probably one of the easiest shows I've done in the sense that the Internet connection was good and the rest of the show seemed to complement my own segment well. My thanks to Boris Kraft, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer for Magnolia, for briefing me well about their product and spending some extra time with me during the demo.

The Impact of Machine Learning on Mobile Marketing

21 March, 2014 - 13:32

The world of marketing is only growing more complex as a variety of platforms and technologies are giving customers more access to businesses and products than ever before. These new challenges are forcing many marketers to adopt some new technologies of their own as they seek to reach out more effectively to a wider audience. The key to these new strategies is that of machine learning, which is playing a pivotal role in this new revolution of marketing, particularly among mobile platforms.

To truly grasp the big change machine learning is making to mobile marketing, it’s important to understand the traditional way marketers determined an effective offer. It’s called A/B testing, and it works by presenting two different versions of an offer and seeing which one gets the most positive response from a group of customers. Once the preferred offer has been chosen, that message is sent to everyone.

It’s easy to see the drawbacks to this decades-old method. Only two possible offers are presented, and even once the best one is found, it is sent to people that might not respond favorably. A/B testing does not take into account all the many different factors involving an individual customer’s decision-making process. Those factors, however, make for a lot of data that can be collected and stored by businesses in today’s information age. Sorting through such an immense collection is beyond the realm of possibility for humans, but that’s where machine learning comes in.
