    My CMS-Connected Review of Magnolia CMS

    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.

  • White Paper: Managing Content in the Transactional Application with Movable Type

    White Paper: Managing Content in the Transactional Application with Movable Type

    I'm very selective when it comes to promoting white papers. A white paper is a document often used as a marketing or sales tool in business. White papers are long-form content designed to promote a products or service which often use selected facts favorable to the company sponsoring the document. That use of "selected facts" bothers the natural-born scientist in me. However, every now and then you come across one of these papers that holds true, is well written, and by an author or analyst you respect. In this case, the document is written by Deane Barker for Movable Type and is titled, "Managing Content in the Transactional Application" (PDF).

  • Put this one on your radar: Microweber CMS

    Put this one on your radar: Microweber CMS

    Whenever a content management system first appears on my screen, I always look at whether the developers' initial claims are true. In this case, I'm looking at Microweber and its claim that their software offers a "new generation" CMS with "cool features and innovative concepts".  Given that most of the software development in Microweber CMS is recent, from 2012 to present, the goals and claims are ambitious. Impressively, the CMS has already been translated into seven languages so far by its contributors. As word about this CMS beings to spread globally, it's time to dig a little deeper into Microweber.

  • The Joomla CMS: 50 Million Downloads Later

    The Joomla CMS: 50 Million Downloads Later

    Today, we received an announcement from the folks at Joomla! which we couldn't pass up. The Joomla CMS has been downloaded more than 50 million times. Just as impressive, Joomla is currently being download at 1 million downloads a month.

    Joomla is used to build, organize, manage and publish content for websites, blogs, Intranets and mobile applications. A few other milestones to note is that Joomla is also currently the world’s second most utilized CMS behind WordPress and ahead of Drupal. If you do the math, that translates to 3.1% of all the world’s Web properties now run on the Joomla platform. Joomla! is also claiming that about 630,000 people have had input into the CMS since its launch in 2005.

  • Need CEM? The CMS Box is Big Enough

    If you're an insider of the content management industry, you're well of aware of the recent claims by some that the content management system is dead. If you're still using CMS as part of your vocabulary, you must not be keeping up with the times because it's all about customer experience management (CEM or CXM).  This is what some want you to believe. It's wishful thinking by those that want to be at the cutting edge of something new and believe you do that by diminishing the value of what we know currently works. Every few years we go through this movement and every time history has shown that the demise of the CMS is exaggerated.

  • Mailbag: Top 50 Drupal Reference & Tutorial Sites

    Mailbag: Top 50 Drupal Reference & Tutorial Sites

    Jimmy Atkinson from The Web Hosting Database recently sent us a note about WHdb.com updating their Top 50 Drupal Reference & Tutorial Sites. Jimmy asked us to help spread the word about the page (see his email attached below).

    As a Drupal user, I find resources like this page to be helpful so I have no problems giving WHdb a plug here. One thing you will want to note about the page is while they did number the list for easier read, the resources are not listed in any particular order. Also, at the time I viewed the page I found a couple of the links broken. These things happen and perhaps by the time you read this, Jimmy has already made some corrections on the page.
