  • The Impact of Google Fiber in Kansas City

    The Impact of Google Fiber in Kansas City

    Google has already rolled out its fiber-optic technology for residents in specific areas of Kansas City – on both sides of the state line. High-speed Internet and TV services have come to many of the city’s “fiberhoods” – a neighborhood which has pre-registered for Google’s network in order to get its service.

    The fiber has been installed in twelve areas of Kansas City, Kansas and in two areas of Kansas City, Missouri. The installation is in progress in many more areas of the Kansas City metropolitan.

    Next city on the list is Austin, Texas. The city expects its service to be live in mid-2014. While Austin residents await their 1 Gbps Internet speeds, let’s take a look at what the service has done for Kansas City.

  • 5 Signs You’re Paying Too Much for Your Data

    5 Signs You’re Paying Too Much for Your Data

    Businesses have seen the value of data for years. Thus, businesses have collected survey, transaction and marketing data all with the hope that by analysing it they can improve their business processes and become more profitable. The problem is that some companies end up paying more than the data is actually worth, due to poor business practices or relying on a data warehouse that simply can't keep up with today’s influx of data. For business leaders who find the following five signs familiar, it may be time to switch to big data as a service, such as Qubole, to get the most out of the data they collect and the money they spend.

  • UK Lags In IPv6 Readiness

    Strategies in Mobile and Internet of Things at Risk of Failure; Audit Now Action Later Say Logicalis and University of Southampton

    Logicalis and University of Southampton have warned that the UK’s slow progress in preparing for IPv6, the new internet addressing protocol, could threaten UK-based organizations’ ability to compete on the international stage, particularly in vital fast-growing economies. Furthermore it puts at risk strategies in mobility and emerging trends such as the Internet of Things (IoT). The UK currently stands in 16th place in Europe and 27th worldwide in an IPv6 readiness league table compiled by Logicalis based on data gathered by Cisco Systems.

  • End User Perspective: Drupal 8 Begins Making Headlines

    End User Perspective: Drupal 8 Begins Making Headlines

    While Drupal 8 has been been under development for two and a half years, I haven't talked much about it. I learned long ago that it doesn't do much good to talk about an upcoming release of a CMS until the software crosses over from what most of us would consider "vaporware."

    The software needs to be close to beta, allowing for normal folks to actually be able install for testing purposes with a reasonable amount of certainty we don't need to be a developer. If you're a loyal reader of Planet Drupal, by now you should be getting a sense that the time has come to finally talk about Drupal 8.

    Note: A version of this article first appeared as Drupal 8 Begins Making Headlines at The CMS Connection.

  • CEO Corner: Proprietary CMS Vendors: It’s Us Vs. Them

    I just finished reading Dave Scalera’s post on the Acquia blog “Open Source lies: Confessions of a former Commercial CMS Salesperson” and it got me thinking about the Open Source vs. Proprietary thing.

    I know, here we go again.

    What I’ve come to realize is that it doesn't matter what’s better. It matters what people believe is better.

  • The CMS-Connected Review of Liferay Video

    The CMS-Connected Review of Liferay Video

    I had the privileged of reviewing Liferay Portal for CMS-Connected's "In the Spotlight" segment. This is the first time, I've done a show with new co-host Butch Sterns. The end result is what I think is a great question and answer review of Liferay's products followed by Scott Liewehr's analyst perspective of Liferay the company. In the show, I talked about Liferay Portal and Liferay Social Office. I also had a chance to briefly mention Liferay Sync.
