    Infographic: IT Friction and what can be done about it

    The attached infographic details a few key points about "IT Friction", the friction that exists between IT and employee. The infographic is based on research and analysis conducted by Forrester Research. In the Forrester Research report titled "Exploring Business and IT Friction: Myths and Realities," it was found that an astonishing 86% of the end-users lost an average of 18 work hours a month because of IT issues. While the debate over IT Friction has yet to be solved, the disconnect between IT and those they service is a topic that almost everyone has an opinion on.  BMC has an interesting blog post detailing the study and reaction to IT issues by end users on social media. We all of course also recognize the increased conflict between IT and users over BYOD policies and sometimes even the lack of BYOD policies.

    A Maintenance Release for the Joomla CMS

    The Joomla! project recently released a new version of their flagship content management system, Joomla 3.1.4. This is a maintenance release with no security fixes.

For example, this version will now show the Joomla username in administrative area.

  • Off Topic: Home Is Where The Network Is

    Off Topic: Home Is Where The Network Is

    Anyone who likes to avoid supporting a "rats nest" of network wiring should insist that their next house contain a well thought-out network distribution panel. In fact if it doesn't and I were you, I would insist to the seller that's why you as the buyer will pay less for the house due to future headaches you are likely to encounter. In my house, the builder and contractors pre-wired the house for phone, data, cable, satellite, cable, and audio. What more could an IT professional want? The best thing of all, the previous owner of the house barely touched those wires giving me the opportunity to hook things up my way for the very first time.

  • DotNetNuke Rebrands to DNN and Expands Product Suite

    DotNetNuke Rebrands to DNN and Expands Product Suite

    Over the years, we all have abbreviated DotNetNuke as DNN as we've discussed this open source .Net based content management system. It looks like the corporate folks upstairs have finally made this interchangeability official. DotNetNuke Corp will now be known as DNN.

    The new DNN has also taken the time not only to announce the branding of the new company logo, but also announced a new and refocused suite of products and services. Today, DNN has announced DNN Evoq, a suite of integrated applications enabling enterprises to create online experiences and powerful interactive communities. DNN Evoq intends to make it easy for users, including those with minimal IT experience, to integrate social functionality with their existing websites.

  • CEO Corner: CMS Has Become One-Size-Fits-None

    A few months ago, CMS Australian enthusiast Said Salameh posted this excellent breakdown comparing the number of steps required to complete simple tasks between eight leading open source content management systems. He illustrates how simple things like editing a page or adding an article can take ten steps or more – far more than necessary. His post spawned a discussion on the Web Content Management group on LinkedIn drawing out frustrations from many in the industry about the complexity of content management systems – particularly open source systems.

  • Acquia Cloud Receives Second FISMA Certification For Federal Cloud Customers

    Acquia Cloud Receives Second FISMA Certification For Federal Cloud Customers

    Acquia, a Drupal solutions provider, announced today that it has received a second Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) Authorization to Operate (ATO) for federal customers using Acquia Cloud. FISMA compliance provides a path for government agencies to develop next-generation digital experiences with Drupal that incorporate the web, mobile and social communities. 

    FISMA and its associated National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards provide a risk-based framework to support security best practices for systems managed by federal agencies. Acquia is the first provider to offer enterprise-class Drupal cloud services with a FISMA moderate ATO, which provides insight and assurance in Acquia’s ability to deliver secure cloud services for government websites and social communities. The authorization, obtained earlier this year as part of Acquia’s work with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, provides documentation to federal agencies that are evaluating the security protocols of Acquia’s cloud services.

  • Study: Google Plus Ones and Relevant Content Closely Linked with High Google Search Rankings

    Study: Google Plus Ones and Relevant Content Closely Linked with High Google Search Rankings

    But ‘keyword domains’ are less important according to a comprehensive analysis of factors that correlate with ranking highly in Google US searches in 2013

    Web pages that rank higher in Google searches tend to have more Google+ plus ones and Facebook shares. While having a relevant keyword in the web site domain name or web address now seems less closely linked with high rankings according to new research. And while pages with higher quality content rank better, top brand web pages apparently continue to automatically rank in top positions without obeying the same rules as other sites.
