Most organizations determine the effectiveness of their digital efforts based on conversions - but what happens after that conversion? According to a recent SiriusDecisions report, 80% of B2B marketers indicate that they will be using digital advertising in 2017, but less than 50% are measuring ‘beyond the click’.Language Undefined
Large scale Drupal projects are a special breed of Drupal project typically found with large enterprise customers. They involve managing multiple initiatives, partners, stakeholders and product owners. When development is performed by round-the-clock, globally distributed teams, project management complexity compounds. It’s critical that everyone understands the part they need to play. When executing projects with this scale, it can become challenging to maintain efficient agile workflows.Language Undefined

From Stone Age-worthy Sites to Cohesive Content: How Trinity University is Using Drupal to Enhance Their .Edu Space
Blogs, course content, research updates, and Spiders on Drugs. Wait ... what?! Faculty, staff, and student organizations at Trinity University had spent about a decade developing creative content and individual web sites on the trinity.edu domain. Unfortunately, their creativity was published online without any oversight or review process, and without a content management system to store or organize data.Language Undefined
Lightning is an open source starter kit and framework that helps developers tap into the richness of key D8 functionality, and build sites and experiences faster. At DrupalCon the team presented a session where we built an authoring experience live. This was the result of months of planning and practice. In this webinar, we will deconstruct each step in the build.Language Undefined
The problem of accurately previewing changes to site content, especially in the context of other content (whether new or existing) has been a daunting challenge for years.
First addressed by the Site Preview System (SPS) as part of the Large Scale Drupal initiative, and more recently as the Content Preview System (CPS), the problem still exists. Using a new suite of both new and existing contributed modules, and leveraging the work being done as part of the core Workflow Initiative, the Workspace Preview System (WPS) is the third - and we hope definitive - solution to this space.Language Undefined

The latest iteration of Acquia Lift unifies content and customer context into one platform. With Lift, organizations can deliver personalized content across the buyer's journey, at scale.Language Undefined
Web accessibility - the practice of ensuring that websites and applications are available to all users, regardless of ability - isn’t a new topic. However, even today, few web developers and product owners fully understand the nuances of accessibility and universal design. Some believe all it takes is a few quick tweaks to make a site fully accessible, while others propose costly site overhauls to avoid litigation and negative press.Language Undefined
The digital needs of the federal government are changing in response to rising citizen expectations. To meet these demands, agencies are increasingly looking to deploy public facing websites quickly and efficiently. In some cases, like Treasury Department’s 10-dollar bill site, they’re looking to deploy a small micro-site for marketing purposes. In others, they’re taking a more agile approach and using a small website to prove the model of open source and the cloud.Language Undefined
Enterprise marketing’s shift from push to pull based acquisition models has formally changed the way in which organizations interact with their consumers. With today’s buyers searching for purchase information online, companies generate content to be found first and, with 88%* of organizations leveraging content marketing, those that don’t risk undiscovery and fewer sales.Language Undefined
Personalization has become either a requirement or a near term plan for almost every marketing organization and is being used in digital experiences across all industries and verticals. Yet the promise of personalization often falls short because of the lack of a defined personalization strategy and expert execution.Language Undefined
The Workbench module suite is a key component to most Drupal 7 web sites. Providing revision management, personal editorial workspaces, and editorial access groups, the module suite provides a unified solution to common problems. Workbench was so popular in Drupal 7 that Acquia helped move it to Drupal 8 as part of the Module Acceleration Program. And now, Workbench Moderation is in Drupal 8.2 core as Content Moderation.Language Undefined
Understanding Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) has become really critical in Drupal 8. OOP adds benefits such as code reuse and encapsulation, allowing users to build better maintainable and structured code. This does come at a cost for the developer, who must make him or herself familiar with how this is done in PHP: namespaces, PSR-standards and general OOP concepts may all be new if you were previously using Drupal 7.Language Undefined
