The announcement of the partnership is likely an unsurprising move for most involved in the open source content management and document management industry as similar partnerships with other content management providers and Alfresco have already occurred. Nor is this the first time that we've seen Acquia involved with integrating the Drupal CMS with the Alfresco platform. However, this is probably the first time we've seen Acquia and and Alfresco Inc. so publicly announce such a partnership for delivering products and services and perhaps this is a recognition that customers have need for better integration solutions in both product and services.

"The real problem we're up against is not technology, it's that management DNA in companies.... When you concentrate the responsibility for innovation at the top, you're holding your capacity to change hostage. It disempowers the little people."
- Gary Hamel, quoted by Lucas Mearian, "The next corporate revolution will be power to the peons", Computerworld, June 4, 2013.
Those of you who have been in the content management industry a while will remember the CMS Watch report. I’m not sure when I first heard of it, but I think it was at an AIIM conference in 2005. I remember thinking that if we could just get Agility into that report, we would have it made. Looking back, it’s amazing to see how many of the systems that ranked well in 2005 are either gone or no longer relevant.
A few years later, I saw an article on CMS Wire that Ektron had made it into the Gartner Magic Quadrant. I realized that it was going to be hard to complete with this level of recognition, no matter how superior Agility is.
Fast forward to 2013, and Agility is yet to be found in either of these reports. I reached out several times to CMS Watch in the early days, but we were just too small. I called Gartner in 2010 to see what it would take to get on the Magic Quadrant. They were quick to point out that Agility was probably too small, but if we paid $20,000 they would take a closer look.
It struck me that it might be worthwhile to write an article on the topic to dig deeper into the options available for CMS vendors. Here are my findings.

Kroll Ontrack, a leading provider of data recovery, e-disclosure and information management products and services, today announced five of the most common mistakes made by IT administrators that can lead to data loss. Given the complexity and capacity of advanced storage devices and the criticality of organizational data, documentation and best practice implementation are critical when it comes to protecting data.
“With data stored in multiple locations and on multiple devices, loss at any level can be very detrimental, putting IT administrators in the hot seat to provide fast issue resolution and minimize downtime,” said Robert Winter, chief engineer, Kroll Ontrack. “Under such extreme pressure, IT teams may be overlooking established ITIL best practices for IT service management in the pursuit of urgent issue resolution, leaving organizations at risk of data loss.”

Sometimes timing is everything and some would argue that I should have jumped on this story weeks ago. Earlier this month, Rivet Logic announced the launch of Crafter Software Corporation, which offers commercial support and licenses for the Crafter CMS open source project (previously known as Crafter Rivet). I didn't jump on the story and CMS Report is probably one of the few CMS news sites that didn't talk about the Crafter Rivet spin off into Crafter Software. The honest truth, I just didn't want to rehash the press release on the day the announcement was made without offering some additional perspective of my own.
