Gilbane Advisor 10-22-19 — Interoperability, ambient computing, CCPA

Microsoft puzzling announcements

Jean-Louis Gassée has some good questions, including… “Is Microsoft trying to implement a 21st century version of its old Embrace and Extend maneuver — on Google’s devices and collaboration software this time?” Read More

Microsoft Duo

Integrated innovation and the rise of complexity

While Stephen O’Grady’ post isn’t addressing Microsoft‘s recent Surface announcements as Gassée was, it is an interesting companion, or standalone read. Read More

Google and ambient computing

‘Ambient computing‘ has mostly been associated with the Internet of Things (IoT). There are many types of computing things. But the most important, from a world domination perspective, are those at the center of (still human) experience and decision-making; that is mobile (and still desktop) computing devices. The biggest challenge is the interoperability required at scale. This is fundamental to computing platform growth and competitive strategies (see Gassée’s question above). Ben Thompson analyzes Google recent announcements in this context. Read More

Attention marketers: in 12 weeks, the CCPA will be the national data privacy standard. Here’s why

Now it’s 10 weeks. Tim Walters makes a good case for his prediction even though other states are working on their own legislation, and Nevada has a policy already in effect. Read More

Integration of open source and proprietary technologies — a case study

Gilbane’s Digital Experience Conference

Washington DC April 28 – 29, Workshops May 1

facing crowd

Technology and operational integration remain the most difficult and costly implementation issues for digital experience and digital transformation initiatives. Understanding the integration technologies and practices most critical for your project is a requirement for success. Integrating open source and proprietary technologies can save cost, but what’s involved? Does open source add additional challenges? Veteran Joe Bachana describes a current project integrating a mix of five different systems. This is bound to be interesting!

A201. Case study in integration of open source with proprietary technologies for AGBU, a global not-for-profit 

In this talk, Joe Bachana presents how open source technologies such as Drupal (CMS), Entermedia (DAM), OpenKM (records management), and CiviCRM (CRM) are being implemented with an Intacct Accounting System for the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU). The resulting system manages the entire customer relationship, from inception through to management of donations and membership activities.

Tuesday, April 30: 10:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Gilbane Advisor 2-27-19 — Language models, dev workflow, integration and DX

Better language models and their implications

OpenAI reports results using an unsupervised language model that generates coherent paragraphs of text. The examples are impressive. An additional reason to check this post and their site is the decision not to share the full models because of concerns they will be used formalicious purposes. This seems well-intended but is controversial. Read More

Google Translate & Wittgenstein

While we’re on the topic of language models. I love it when philosophers get credit, and this example is a favorite. In this quick read, Olivia Goldhill does a great job explaining how Google Translate, and other neural networking based natural language applications, are a manifestation of Wittgenstein’s theory of language. Read More

How fast can you go from structured content to working front-end?

Experienced content strategists and web developers know that collaborating as early as possible is the safest and fastest route to success. Chris Atherton shares a short engaging case study that is useful for educating nontechnical colleagues on why early iterative collaboration is important even for “simple projects”. Read More

Google, Dropbox, and the “one-window test”

Scott Brinker on platforms, integration, and DX. The same test, and advice, is useful when building your own non-SaaS, or mixed, systems.

“Does X integrate with Y?” is a deceptively oversimplified yes/no question. In the cloud, the answer is almost always “yes.” It’s kind of like calling a restaurant and asking if they combine ingredients together. Sure they do. But how tasty is the meal? How attentive is the service? How reasonable is the price? Read More

Update: Gilbane’s Digital Experience Conference in Washington DC

You may have heard about our Digital Experience conference taking place in Washington DC, April 29 – 30, followed by workshops on May 1, 2019. And if you’ve been a regular attendee at our Boston conference and are wondering why we are returning to DC, There is a reason, aside from the fact that late April is a great time to visit DC.

Since our first conference on content management in 2002, we have covered requirements and strategies for integrating content management with other front and back end enterprise systems. The technology and practical experiences in deployment have allowed organizations to make tremendous progress over the years. But the demand for new channels, new audiences, improved digital experiences, the explosion of marketing technology software, all combined with emerging technologies, make earlier integration challenges seem tame. Technology and process integration remain the most difficult and costly implementation issues for digital experience and digital transformation initiatives.

Moving to DC allows us to expand our ability to help organizations with some of the most common integration challenges by co-locating with three other events that focus on key components of digital experience strategies: CRM Evolution, Smart Customer Service, and SpeechTek. There are passes available for our Digital Experience conference attendees to also attend sessions in each of the other events, and there is a combined technology showcase.

Gilbane’s Digital Experience conference continues to provide the same highly-curated vendor-neutral program focused on content and digital experience strategies, technologies, and practices for marketing and the workplace, that we have in the past. Please see our new Digital Experience Conference site for information about the program tracks, schedule, venue, and partner events.

And if you have an idea for a presentation, our call for speakers is open until October 12th.
