Many social media sites are trying to push back against the juggernaut known as Google and its mammoth advertising operation. Perhaps it’s no secret how important advertising revenue is to most social media platforms. After all, free services have to find money to operate from somewhere. Fully taking advantage of advertising, however, has been tricky thanks to Google AdWords and its powerful influence across the web. AdWords’ reach is impressive and plays a crucial role in Google’s growth. In fact, AdWords is the mega-corporation’s primary source of revenue. Needless to say, many social media platforms see this and want to expand their own advertising efforts in a push to compete with Google every step of the way. Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn know the value of a more expansive advertising scope, and though each is working independently of the other, it’s fascinating to see that they’ve come up with similar strategies to achieve their goals.

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.

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.
