Drupal + Business = Meeting Mobile & Social Enterprise Needs
The seminar tour continues! Three Drupal Business Summits in the US and Canada in late May and early June will feature the success of the Drupal content management system framework for meeting sophisticated business requirements. With millions of Drupal websites online and an army of Drupal technologists buzzing about the platform, the business aspect of Drupal rarely gets the attention it deserves. The Drupal Business Summit has been created for Senior IT and Marketing Professionals who are responsible for web strategy, IT, communications, marketing, and branding.
According to the event’s website:
“Drupal is much more than a content management system. Discover how organizations are using Drupal as a platform to power social communities, mobile sites & apps, and to create highly engaging user experiences. Hear lessons learned, tips, techniques and best practices for using Drupal in your organization. Learn how Drupal measures up to other CMS platforms, and how it can help to reduce operating costs without sacrificing usability.”
Drupal Business Summit will be occurring in:
- Toronto: To kick off, the first summit will occur in Toronto at the Hotel Ocho on May 29th.
- Chicago: Taking place on Duo’s home turf, the Chicago event is taking place June 5th at the Gleacher Center.
- New York: The city that never sleeps will host the final Drupal Business Summit on June 11th at the Union League Club.
Given the focus of Drupal as a business solution, Duo has elected to be a Platinum Sponsor to help insure the success of these summits. With the experience we’ve cultivated developing online communities on the Drupal platform, Duo CEO Michael Silverman will make presentations drawing on anecdotes in his recently published book, Capturing Community: How to Build, Manage and Market Your Online Community.
Michael’s presentation will guide the audience through the research and best practices he collected for the book. Want a preview? All of the presentation slides are up on Slideshare. You can also purchase Michael’s book on Amazon. Interested in learning about online communities but aren’t sure yet whether to buy the book? No problem. We have a free ebook entitled Join! available for download via this page.
Joining Michael Silverman at each of the city summits will be another Michael. Michael Meyers, an Emmy-nominated technologist and entrepreneur. Michael Meyers currently advises several startups on Internet and mobile product and software development. He is a passionate open source advocate and advisor to the Drupal Association Board of Directors.
