  • 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.

  • Overhaul of Security, SEO Readiness, and Speed in Joomla 3.3

    Overhaul of Security, SEO Readiness, and Speed in Joomla 3.3

    Yesterday, Joomla developers announced the immediate availability of Joomla 3.3. The newest Joomla CMS overhauls its approach to security, enables microdata for the first time and replaces MooTools-based JavaScript with jQuery equivalents. These new features make Joomla 3.3 the most secure, searchable and fastest-loading Joomla CMS yet.

    Joomla is one of the world's most popular software packages used to build, organize, manage and publish content for websites, blogs, Intranets and mobile applications. With more than 3 percent of the Web running on Joomla and a CMS market share of more than 9 percent, the free open source software powers the web presence of hundreds of thousands of small businesses, governments, non-profits and large organizations worldwide like Citibank, eBay, General Electric, Harvard University, Ikea, McDonald's and Sony.

  • 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.

  • WordPress 3.9 Refines Media Experience

    WordPress 3.9 Refines Media Experience

    WordPress 3.9 has been released with a number of refinements that WordPress hopes you'll "love". The changes and new features are solid but perhaps not as many as we've come to appreciate in past WordPress point releases. Some of the new features that can be found in WordPress 3.9 include improvements in the media editing experience, gallery previews, and live editing of widgets and headers.

  • 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.

  • Quoting IT: Most Common Mistake in Buying a CMS

    Quoting IT: Most Common Mistake in Buying a CMS

    "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.

  • Three New CMS Releases: ImpressPages, Jahia, and Umbraco

    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.
