Inter-departmental Fight Club: How Marketing and I.T. can Collaborate Effectively

Where: Webinar
When: Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Cost: Free

With web technologies moving forward at a blistering pace, a new rift has been created between the I.T. department - who need to ensure that technology is reliable, stable and secure - and the Marketing or Creative departments, who want to implement the latest web design techniques to give them an edge over competitors. This presentation is designed to help both sides understand the requirements and expectations of the other, and to help navigate the process of implementing a new website or web technology. We can help you understand where the role of one team ends and another begins, where there needs to be collaboration and cooperation, and can offer tips and strategies that we've learned by building large websites for a variety of organizations.

Drupal as Infrastructure: Migration and Management of Multi-site Deployments

Where: Webinar
When: Tuesday, March 12, 2013 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Cost: Free

Drupal is fast becoming the de facto content management standard for universities, governments, and companies, but Drupal is much more than just another content management platform.With its ability to power multiple, distinct, custom sites from a centralized install, Drupal allows organizations to scale effectively, supporting hundreds of different sites from a single core.

We have worked with Temple University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Acquia (the enterprise Drupal platform) on multi-site Drupal deployments. In this webinar, we discuss our experience in managing site migrations, configuring multi-site installs, and creating internal processes and procedures to ensure long-term viability. We will also discuss pros and cons of the Acquia platform vs. internal server management.
