The announcement of the partnership is likely an unsurprising move for most involved in the open source content management and document management industry as similar partnerships with other content management providers and Alfresco have already occurred. Nor is this the first time that we've seen Acquia involved with integrating the Drupal CMS with the Alfresco platform. However, this is probably the first time we've seen Acquia and and Alfresco Inc. so publicly announce such a partnership for delivering products and services and perhaps this is a recognition that customers have need for better integration solutions in both product and services.
United Planet, one of the leading developers of enterprise portal software in Europe, has developed a new social business platform called Intrexx Share which it expects to drive employee collaboration and revitalize the role of the intranet as an internal company communications network.
DotNetNuke (DNN) has announced a social software solution aimed at optimizing customer engagement and loyalty through online communities. DNN Social gives businesses the ability to easily create and manage communities on their existing websites, giving end-users a one-stop destination for consuming content, exchanging ideas and interacting with other community members.
DNN Social enables businesses to effectively control the customer conversation by allowing it to take place on the corporate website, instead of driving customers to a third-party social site. Thriving user communities can help reduce support costs, drive product innovation and increase sales and brand awareness at an affordable price point. During the past two years, DNN executives have told CMS Report that they believe one of the key requirements for a modern CMS is to include social functionality and have steadily moved their product line toward this direction. Available today, DNN Social attempts to reinvent how companies optimize their web presence by combining industry-leading content and community management into a single, easy-to-use solution.

During the past couple years, it has been whispered to CMS Report that we needed to watch DotNetNuke's progress in two significant areas: social publishing and the Cloud. Last Spring we saw the DNN project make progress in this area with DotNetNuke 6.2 as a Social Content Management System (CMS) and yesterday when it was announced during DotNetNuke World that Microsoft and DotNetNuke have partnered to to offer its Social Content Management System (CMS) through Microsoft’s Windows Azure Cloud.

CMS Expo in Chicago last week gave me a great opportunity to learn about a variety of content management systems. I spent most of my time at the conference getting out of my comfort zone by visiting with those companies and open source projects that I knew the least about their products and services. Unfortunately, this strategy also prevented me from visiting with my personal favorite CMS, Drupal.
