Top Five Content Management Challenges You Need to Solve Now
This is a guest post from Cloudinary, a cloud-based image and video
management solution. We are always looking for ways to help companies deliver
digital experiences that will meet customers expectations in terms of content
and performance. Tackling these 5 challenges is a good step towards
delivering a top-notch digital experience.
We are in the midst of a great evolution when it comes to website design.
Formerly text-heavy sites now rely on eye-catching images and video to draw
in visitors, improve engagement rates and drive readership. These results are
proven. Articles with relevant images get 94 percent more total views,
according to digital marketing expert Jeff Bullas. And images are vital to
websites influencing page views and user engagement for news articles, press
material, local search, eCommer... (more)
Over the past few years, a paradigm shift of monumental proportions has been
quietly occurring on the World Wide Web. The traditional "brand-builder" Web
site whose sole purpose was the delivery of static marketing information to
potential customers has finally lost its appeal. Fuelled by the demands of
Web-savvy business owners and consumers, a new breed of highly functional Web
applications has emerged; these applications deliver dynamic content,
community collaboration, interactive behavior, and real-time communication.
A Web Application Framework is a robust software library used as the basis
for building advanced Web applications. A Web Application Framework typically
contains a well-defined architecture and an abstract set of reusable
components that are specifically designed to simplify development, enforce
consistency, increase productivity, and improve appli... (more)

dedicated to monetizing cloud computing services.
Zuora CEO Tien Tzuo describes the widgetry as the start-up’s most important
product announcement to date, “a big step towards our vision of being the

Here is a question that I have been pondering on and off for quite a while:
Why do "cool kids" choose Ruby or PHP to build websites instead of Java?
I have to admit that I do not have an answer.
Why do I even care? Because I am a Java developer. Like many Java developers,
I get along with Java well. Not only the language itself, but the development
environments (Eclipse for example), step-by-step debugging helper, wide
availability of libraries and code snippets, and the readily accessible
information on almost any technical question I may have on Java via Google.
Last but not least, I go to JavaOne and see 10,000 people that talk and walk
just like me.
The other reason that I ponder this question is that the power of Java is a
perfect fit for the areas where websites may need more than markups or
scripting, such as middleware logic. PHP and Ruby etc ... (more)
The arrival of the iPhone has heralded a new era for Internet-enabled
devices; however, the device wasn't designed with the enterprise user in
mind. To be successful, enterprise apps need to be optimized for the user
experience and fit business requirements. In this session, Dave Carroll will
demonstrate how developers using a modern Model-View-Controller (MVC)
development approach provided by the Force.com platform can shape the
presentation of data to a specific context and use standard web development
technologies—including HTML, and AJAX—to create on-demand enterprise
applications. With these technologies developers can easily add the iPhone to
provide mobile access to their enterprise.

MODx, currently available in version 0.9.2, has had some AJAX functionality
added to its traditional PHP Content Management System (CMS) environment.
Denoted as a Content Management Framework, this open source environment is
written to allow non-technical designers to create and support dynamic
websites. Writing content is handled by a rich text editor, documents are
organized in easily accessible folders.
The administrative panel uses AJAX to access many of the functions does not
require a reload of the whole page, live sorting for file lists is provided,
and sections of the CMS-supported webpage can be edited from the preview
A MODx demo can be found at http://opensourcecms.com/.
In corporate environments, being able to integrate with existing systems is
of extreme importance. Due to its nature, the open source development
methodology forces software developers to be prepared to interoperate and
integrate with whatever is already there. This is a big difference from the
more traditional black box software mentality, and a huge benefit for
enterprise customers. In this session, Hippo CTO Arjé Cahn will introduce
Hippo CMS, an Open Source Enterprise Content Management system, and dive into
the details of fitting a CMS into your environment.
Arjé Cahn is CTO of Open Source Content Management developer Hippo
(Amsterdam, The Netherlands). He runs the Hippo open source team at
www.hippocms.org. and has earned his merits in the open source world with an
Apache committership. Arjé is a regular speaker on the subjects of open

SYSTIME, an Oracle JD Edwards Certified Advantage Partner, was recently
selected as the JD Edwards Global Implementation Partner for WireCo
As WireCo WorldGroup's business demands increased, it became imperative for
them to manage their global operations cohesively resulting in the need for
an efficient and cost effective ERP solution. After an in-depth ERP discovery
and selection process, they chose Oracle’s JD Edwards. As part of the
selection process, SYSTIME provided a customer case study session which was
followed by Proof of Concept (POC) performance, showcasing SYSTIME's
specialization in JD Edwards' implementations.
SYSTIME and Oracle jointly conducted the discovery and POC sessions at WireCo
WorldGroup. The sessions consisted of demonstrations and detailed workshops.
The end-to-end JD Edwards implementation project included Finance,
2007 was undoubtedly the year of Social Networking, but what of 2008? Will
'08 be the year of "Unified Communications" or the year when CMS comes to
stand for "Community Management System" - or even "Collaboration Management
System"? Or will it be the year of the giga-merger, to beat the mere
mega-mergers of 2007?
At the end of each year, SYS-CON informally polls its globe-girdling network
of software developers, industry executives, commentators, investors,
writers, and editors. As always, the range and depth of their answers is
fascinating, throwing light not just on where the industry is going but also
how it's going to get there, why, because of who, and within what kind of
