  • Quoting IT: When an Open Source Community Faces Growing Pains

    Quoting IT: When an Open Source Community Faces Growing Pains

    "There's no right way to do it, but there are wrong ways, trust me, I know, I've done them all. Doing it wrong can harm people and it can really hurt the community. What you all have built together is remarkable and it's worth considering how you extend it further and find ways to continue to collaborate, both as Drupal, and maybe even more importantly as a broader PHP community."

    - Amy Stephen, Molajo Developer and Consultant, Comment to "Backdrop: Forking Drupal" by Laura Scott, Pingv.com, September 11, 2013

  • Warning: Cloud Computing is Here to Stay

    Warning: Cloud Computing is Here to Stay

    Those who dismissed cloud computing a couple years ago as a passing fad are quickly learning that the cloud is here to stay. Just like Twitter and Facebook evolved from a college student “fad” to key marketing tools, cloud computing is a viable business solution. CIOs and CTOs who embrace the cloud and create a plan for their company’s transition to the cloud will provide a valuable asset to their company. Those who don't will soon fall behind and find themselves replaced by someone who knows how to incorporate the cloud.

  • 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.

  • How Safe is Your Cloud Data from Service Traffic Hijacking?

    How Safe is Your Cloud Data from Service Traffic Hijacking?

    In a recent survey, 69 percent of North American IT professionals expressed a belief that the risks of using a cloud based service currently outweighed the benefits. The main reason cited was a concern over data security. This concern has made many business leaders hesitant to switch over to the cloud, but the reality is the cloud is growing and is not going away, especially with the possibility of big data cloud computing.

    In fact, Forrester Research predicts that the cloud business will grow from its current worth at $40 billion to $160 billion by 2020. Rather than ignoring the cloud, business leaders should learn about the vulnerabilities, what their implications are and the steps they can take to protect their data. This article will specifically address the vulnerability to service traffic hijacking and how it can be addressed.
