Delivering Results: The State of Content Management and the Opportunity for Drupal

The world of content management is in constant flux: new platforms, new approaches, and new strategies vie for attention, mind share, and market share. While the day to day focus of the Drupal community might be (still!) migration from 6 to 7, or (better) development of core initiatives for Drupal 8, it's important to periodically take a step back and take stock of the broader trends defining the industry.

In this talk I'll explore a number of major trends shaping the ecosystem and the opportunities these trends represent for Drupal (and Drupalists). We'll discuss:

  • Structured Content
  • Responsive Design
  • Mobile First
  • Content Strategy
  • Web Experience Management

How does each of these major trends align with the strengths (and weaknesses) of the Drupal platform and the Drupal community? How can we position Drupal to better respond to these underlying shifts? How can we as Drupal practitioners, contributors, designers, and supporters help the Drupal project while helping our clients succeed?
