    Liferay Portal 6.2 Improves Mobility and WEM

    For the first time in a few years, I'm missing Liferay's North American Symposium currently taking place in San Francisco. However, we still have plenty of information coming our way with regards to CMS related news from people present at this conference. Probably the biggest news yesterday is that Liferay, Inc. revealed Liferay Portal 6.2 to the crowd. 

    Liferay 6.2 offers a more refined, mobile-ready version of the company’s flagship product. The new version should also help enterprises execute their engagement strategy across channels and audiences by making it easy to create mobile-responsive websites that connect with users across every stage of the relationship lifecycle. 

    “Today’s enterprises need to interact with their customers, partners, and employees through compelling, seamless experiences across several channels,” said Bryan Cheung, CEO of Liferay. “Liferay Portal 6.2 is a modern, intuitive platform designed to help enterprises understand and reach their customers across mobile, web, and live contexts.”

  • Drupal, MODX: Open Source Communities, Vendors, and Giving Back

    What I find silly about this week's proprietary versus open source discussion is that I don't think proprietary is the biggest threat to open source. The biggest threat to open source is from within. Open source as a whole needs to do a much better job in preventing the discussion of  Open Source Community versus Open Source Vendor from getting out of hand. Open source must accept the role commercial vendors have in their community or they will soon find their community is financially unsustainable and difficult to be taken seriously. Vendors must also prove to open source that the community is better off with them than without them or that vendor is going to have have little influence at the community's leadership table.

    It takes awhile for open source as a community to respond positively to the changes that new or successful vendors may bring to their community. Most new vendors in open source soon realize that their standing in such communities is ranked not by their company's success but by how much they give or don't give back to their open source community.
