Stanford University - Innovation, Plurality and Drupal

Attendance

This is the story of how Drupal became the CMS of choice at Stanford University, going from a handful of sites in 2006 to hundreds of sites today. Rather than a top-down decision, it was a gradual process that began as a grassroots initiative culminating in central support and development.

The motto of the University is "die luft der freiheit weht" —that sentiment permeates all levels of the organization and its entrepreneurial spirit. The inherent flexibility and power of the Drupal platform, coupled with an ardent in-house developer base, is why Drupal continues to grow at Stanford and across the higher education vertical. This presentation is a detailed account of the steps required to bring Drupal beyond the Tipping Point at Stanford, and the enormous ROI we are witnessing now.

Combining native iOS, Android and desktop coverage – The LexisNexis® Newsmonitor!

Attendance

The LexisNexis® Newsmonitor - a unified and personalized information solution, supporting everyday legal news needs.

The challenge was to make use of an existing third-party-database, combine it with the functionalities of a native NOUS mobile solution for iOS and Androids and get it together with some Drupal awesomeness. It was not easy, since we were generally deprived of Drupal's nodes-concept. See how NOUS and the webshapers still accomplished a project like this with Drupal!

LexisNexis® is a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions designed specifically for professionals in the legal, risk management, corporate, government, law enforcement, accounting, and academic markets.

Growing and Managing Drupal Organisations

Attendance

The success of any IT project, Drupal site development included, depends on the people. The key to success is hiring only good people, avoiding mediocrity, and growing the knowledge of the team with each and every project. This is easier said than done.

The session discusses how to create, grow, and develop a Drupal organisation and to keep your business afloat. The main emphasis is on acquiring and maintaining talented individuals and focusing their energy on a common goal.

The first part of the session elaborates building a Drupal organisation as a Drupal vendor, and the second part discusses creating a Drupal organisation as a customer.

Optimize conversions with A/B Testing

Attendance

A/B Testing is a fundamental concept that will help you improve your conversion rate on almost all online processes. Thus your costs per lead can be cut down drastically and the number of successful conversions easily improved.

The multivariate module (A/B Testing is formally a simplified Multivariate Test) provides deep integration to add testing cases to your Drupal site. Almost all processes onsite can be covered and variations tested.

We'll show you how to setup a test and get valueable information about your clients to better understand your customers, improve your strategy and simply test multiple variants instead of guess what might work best. Sometimes you will get really unexpected results and it's worth trying things!

Learn also from showcases and success stories on amazing results this concept / module helped to reach.

Multilingual websites with a click - Translation Management Tools

Attendance

Multilingual projects are very challenging. Join this session to understand the future of handling multilingual Drupal projects with ease.

After a long process of building a new communication strategy, site structure and rebuilding all content, global companies need to golive even with full multilingual coverage. The amount of additional work required for translation is very often underestimated by both involved parties – the Drupal service provider and the client.

In 2011 a new initiative was started for building new tools to manage and automate translation tasks. They cover everything that is translateable in drupal and unify the interface to manage all aspects of going multilingual.

It provides system wide overview of translateable elements for site administrators / site builders / developers and allows to select things to translate efficiently and create a translation job.

The translation jobs can be assigned to local users (local translation interface) without assigning special permissions to translators or they can be submitted to professional services providers with just a few clicks.

Drupal and the Keys to Successful Communities

Attendance

Drupal and the Keys to Successful Communities:

Drupal has the strongest focus on community website building, in comparison to other readily available content management systems.

On-line communities like Facebook, Yandex, Myspace and Twitter have changed the world. Many smaller communities exist alongside such famous social networks, focused on business, language learning, dating and countless other aspects. That on-line communities have reached wide acceptance in societies worldwide is beyond doubt.

Such communities are strongly influencing how we organize our professional as well as our social lives. They also come increasingly into focus as a marketing instrument for companies, trying to reach customers who are no longer readily accessible through traditional forms of advertising.

Drupal provides an excellent and versatile tool to satisfy the demand to custom-build specialized on-line communities. The fundamental question becomes, "What makes some communities successful and what makes others fail?"

Upgrade your offer! How to sell business value.

Attendance

 

The market for Drupal services is maturing, and so must our offers. In order to stay relevant and be competitive as more enterprise customers enter the market, Drupal shops need to shift focus to delivering business value, and not just code. In this session I will talk about how NodeOne's offer centering around business value, rather than just "sites done to spec", has changed how we work and whom we work with. How much more fun we have now. And how you can do the same.
