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.

Nuxeo and Hippo Team Up to Provide ECM / WCM Solution

Nuxeo, the Open Source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform company, announced a technology alliance with Hippo, a vendor of commercial Java Open Source Web Content Management. The two companies have built an ECM/WCM connector based on the OASIS CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services) standard. Both Nuxeo and Hippo are open source, Java-based, CMIS-compliant platforms. The Nuxeo/Hippo connector benefits from a high degree of flexibility and ensures that content coming from other sources within the organization can be integrated into both platforms. Based on the CMIS standard, the connector allows for content from a Nuxeo-based ECM application to be accessible on a Hippo-based website. This eliminates the need to duplicate the information, and maintains the content history, validation workflow, versioning, and associated metadata. The connector is currently available as a service offering. http://www.nuxeo.com http://www.nuxeo.com http://www.onehippo.com/
