  • Top Exec: Why separate “known” and “anonymous” visitors, when they're really on a spectrum?

    This data is powerful. Even with the “unknown” visitors, I can start to aggregate information and see if patterns based on the content they engage with develops. If they do, I can start creating specific content for southern California visitors and deliver better experiences.  Portals and web are one—it’s time to start treating every visitor as an individual.

    Big data and social media, individually and together, are changing the world in so many different ways. Not only are Facebook and Twitter some of the biggest developers in big data technology, but the information they gather is so important to so many different companies.

  • Should Your Small Business Use Virtualization?

    Virtualization seems to be the way to go in the business world today. Many companies are talking about it, and most have either already implemented it or are thinking of using it. Though there are costs to virtualizing, most businesses say they’re worth it since virtualization often brings big savings in the long run. When talking about virtualization, however, most of the discussion revolves around how large companies are able to take advantage of the technology. Often left out of the conversation are the risks and benefits associated with small businesses employing virtualization. There are a number of important items to consider before deciding if it is right for your small business.

  • DCG's Guide to European Providers for Web Content and CEM

    DCG's Guide to European Providers for Web Content and CEM

    I've been a big fan of Digital Clarity Group ever since they formed. There are some amazing people working for DCG and the work they put out is even more amazing. Last year they put out their 2013 North America Guide to Service Providers for Web Content and Customer Experience Management and I was blown away. Many of the answers to the questions I'm often asked about various agencies and integrators are in this guide. So I'm pretty excited to also see DCG put the same effort toward Europe with their new 2014 Europe Guide to Service Providers for Web Content and Customer Experience Management.

  • Eight Years of CMS Report

    Eight Years of CMS Report

    This week, CMS Report celebrates our eight year anniversary. No one is more surprised than me. Now here we sit with thousands of articles posted by over 350 different contributing authors. I spent some time this week looking back at the most popular articles we posted here on CMS Report. Besides just a list providing the "reader's choice", I also provide my own list of favorite articles that has been posted here on CMSReport.com. When comparing the two lists, you will find the only article on both lists is the one comparing Drupal and Joomla. In 2006, it was one of the first articles that I had written which suggested CMSReport.com might stick around a little longer than I had expected.

  • Top Exec: Open Source and Proprietary are not Sworn Enemies

    Top Exec: Open Source and Proprietary are not Sworn Enemies

    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.
