  • 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.

  • 6 Ways Mobile Marketers are Using Social Media

    6 Ways Mobile Marketers are Using Social Media

    It’s no secret that social media is a tremendous tool for keeping in contact with friends and family. Businesses have quickly picked up on just how effective it can be for marketing purposes as well, particularly mobile marketing. More people are connected to the internet than ever before, and mobile platforms are driving that explosive growth. In fact, internet traffic on mobile devices is expected to exceed the internet traffic on desktops soon. Much of that internet use is geared towards social media outlets, so mobile marketers are finding new ways to use social media to reach new customers and inform existing fans.

  • 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.

  • How BYOD and Big Data are Changing Marketing

    For years, when it came to working in the office, an employee would need to use whatever equipment was provided by the company. The costs of the computers and other devices were the business’s responsibility, but once the equipment was in the employee’s hands, he or she was responsible for what happened to it. In recent years, however, a new trend has emerged that has changed the landscape of how companies conduct their business. It’s called Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and it’s also changing how the world of marketing works.

  • 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.

  • Mailbag: DPCI Announces the DPSBridge Module for Drupal

    Mailbag: DPCI Announces the DPSBridge Module for Drupal

    A few days ago, I received an advance copy DPCI's press release announcing that DPCI has contributed an open source module to integrate Drupal with the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. As far as I can tell, the Drupal 7 module is currently a sandbox project  but I assume it will eventually be released as a full module once the code is worked out. 

    I usually don't blog about specific modules or plugins of a CMS unless I've actually used them for myself or they're huge to the story of the CMS. However, I owe mention of this module to Joe Bachana, President and Founder of DPCI. Several years ago, he invited me to sit on a Drupalcon panel discussing enterprise trends in content management. Besides Joe and myself the panel included Bryan House, Acquia and moderator Jacob Morgan, Chess Media Group.  That panel was a milestone event for me (huge audience) and forced me to acknowledge that I not only had a voice in this industry but also people willing to listen.

    So without hesitation, DPCI's press release regarding their new Drupal module follows.
