Mediacurrent: The Marketer’s Guide to Drupal 8: Why Open Source is the Right Fit for your Organization

Planet Drupal - 3 August 2018 - 12:26pm

We all have heard the debate about Open Source Software and Closed or Proprietary; but what is the real difference?

Simply: 

Open source software is available for the general public to use and modify from its original design free of charge. 

versus

Closed source where the source code is not shared with the public for anyone to look at or change. 

One of the main advantages of open source software is the cost; however, when applied to OSS, the term "free" has less to do with overall cost and more to do with freedom from restrictions. 

90% 
According to Forrester Research 90% the code in a typical application is Open Source.  

For a Closed Source CMS, depending on the choice of software, the cost can vary between a few thousand to a few hundred thousand dollars, which includes a base fee for software, integration and services, and annual licensing/support fees. 

In a 2017 report by Black Duck Software by Synopsys, nearly 60% of respondents said their organizations’ use of open source increased in the last year citing: 

  • cost savings, easy access, and no vendor lock-in (84%)
  • ability to customize code and fix defects directly (67%)
  • better features and technical capabilities (55%)
  • the rate of open source evolution and innovation (55%).

 

1M+ 

Websites across every industry vertical —from Georgia.gov to Harvard— trust Drupal as a secure open source CMS platform. 

Open Source Software has a long-term viability and is always on the cutting edge of technology.  Selecting technologies means committing to solutions that will support an active, growing business over the long term, so it requires careful consideration and foresight.  Here are some of the benefits of open-source to consider:

1. Value for cost 
       Worried about your marketing budget when looking at changing your CMS? Open source software has no licensing fees! It’s free, which means room to spend your $ on other initiatives.
2. Added Security
       Open source - means community. The more people (developers) looking at the source code, the more fixes and regular updates will be available. What can sometimes takes weeks or months to resolve with proprietary software takes just hours or days with open source. This will help give your marketing team a piece of mind knowing that if you don’t have time to look at the code of your site - or you don’t know how - then there are developers all over the world continuously checking for bugs & fixes.
3. Customizability
       Have a really customized idea for your site that you’ve never seen elsewhere? Open Source can help. By customizing the code to fit your needs, it provides a competitive advantage for your business.
4. Flexibility
       Open-source technology naturally provides flexibility to solve business problems. Your team and organization can be more innovative, and it gives you the ability to stay on the cutting edge of latest trends & designs.
5. Integrations
       With open source, especially Drupal, you can Integrate the best-of-breed marketing technology. It is architected for easy integration with your tools - Marketing automation, email service providers, CRM, etc… Drupal 8 gives you the foundation for your digital experience ecosystem.
6. Speed
       This isn’t just about site speed, but the ability to get your site up and running - with full marketing capabilities - on time & within budget. Open source allows you to deliver value right away.
7. Scalability 
       Drupal and other open source platforms give you the advantage of being able to scale your digital presence for the future. You're not confined to stick with what you already have. You can continue to evolve and build long-term with open source.

The Benefits of Open Source can go on for pages but it’s important when evaluating your options to think about your business and its goals. Once consistent need we see is having access to a CMS that is easy for you and your team to manage on a day-to-day basis.

In the next blog of the series - we’ll hear from the Associate Director of Digital Marketing at Shirley Ryan Abilitylab, about how he is leveraging open source - particularly Drupal - to achieve his business goals.

Ashday's Digital Ecosystem and Development Tips: Using the Google Natural Language API with Drupal

Planet Drupal - 3 August 2018 - 12:00pm

If you haven’t heard of the phrase “Natural Language Processing” by now, you soon will. Natural Language processing is an expanding and innovative use of technology to analyze large amounts of data or content and derive meaning from it, short-cutting a tremendous amount of manual effort needed to do that ourselves. It’s been around in some form for quite a while, but it was often relegated to complex enterprise systems or large corporations with a vested interest in automating the data mining of huge amounts of data to figure out what the patterns were, for example, in consumer purchasing trends or social media behavior. It’s a cool idea (it’s a form of artificial intelligence after all) and fuels a lot of our online experience now whether it’s product recommendations, content recommendations, targeted ads, or interactive listening services like Siri or Alexa. What’s even better is that this sort of thing is becoming more and more accessible to use in our own software solutions as many of these now provide services with APIs. This allows us to provide a more personalized or meaningful experience for site visitors on web projects that likely don’t have the budget or requirements to justify attacking natural language processing itself and can instead find accessible ways to benefit from the technology.
