    Acquia, a digital experience cloud platform, acquired Mautic, an open source marketing automation software provider, for an undisclosed amount.

  • Acquia Acquires Mautic

    Acquia, the open source digital experience company, announced today that it has acquired Mautic, creator of the world’s only open marketing automation and campaign management platform. Together, Acquia and Mautic form the only open alternative to expensive, closed, stagnant marketing clouds, expanding Acquia’s vision to offer the industry's first Open Digital Experience Platform. Customers can now automate, personalize, and measure the entire customer lifecycle – across every channel, at every stage, and at every interaction.

  • Simulating the sound of stars, Acquia buying Mautic, open source at the VA, and more news

    What happens when two open source companies come together? In the case of Drupal service provider Acquia buying marketing automation firm Mautic, it's the creation of the first open marketing cloud.

    The deal brings together "open source content management with open source marketing automation," said Acquia CTO Dries Buytaert. DB Hurley, Mautic's founder, added that "open source is poised to transform marketing in the same way it has every other function in the enterprise." According to Buytaert, with the acquisition of Mautic, Acquia "can help marketers reach customers on their preferred channel, in ways that are personal and relevant to them."

  • Acquia Buys Open Source Marketing Automation Software Firm Mautic

    Open source website software company Acquia is buying marketing automation startup Mautic, the companies said. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Acquia, based in Boston, develops open source tools to manage websites built using the open source content management system Drupal. Mautic, a few miles away in Medford, is an open source (See a pattern here?) software firm that helps companies launch and manage marketing campaigns across the wide and growing field of platforms, from social media networks to email and websites.

  • Acquia-Mautic acquisition underscores open source model

    Acquia's Mautic acquisition announced yesterday elevated the content management vendor a few notches higher toward becoming a complete digital experience platform vendor, competing with the likes of Oracle, SAP, Salesforce and Adobe.

    It's the first outright acquisition Acquia has made in about a decade, with the vendor having extended the platform's features and reach through integration partnerships with other vendors during the interim, Forrester analyst Mark Grannan noted. Acquia's Mautic acquisition also positions Acquia to compete more directly with Adobe than with the CRM vendors building customer experience platforms. Adobe and creative tools tend to be purchased by creative teams, while old-guard ERP and CRM system initiatives route through the CIO.

    "[Acquia is] definitely trying to compete more with Adobe, but I would say they are not trying to compete with SAP and Oracle and Salesforce as much," Grannan said. "They aren't competing on a CRM or ERP play."

  • Olivia: Cloud-Based Music Player With YouTube Support And Over 25,000 Online Radio Stations
    Olivia is a fairly new free, open source Qt5 cloud-based music player for Linux. It can play music from YouTube, comes with more than 25,000 Internet radio stations, it supports themes, has a mini player mode, it can save songs for offline playback, and much more. The cloud-based music player is available as alpha software for testing right now. Even so, it works quite well, though lacking some features which I'll mention later on. Olivia is well integrated with YouTube, allowing users to search for songs and add them to the play queue, browse trending YouTube music with the ability to change the country, and more. To save bandwidth, Olivia only plays the audio of YouTube streams.

Programming: Kyma, Microsoft Entryism, Python, Go, and Fedora Summer Coding interns

  • Kyma - extend and build on Kubernetes with ease
    According to this recently completed CNCF Survey, the adoption rate of Cloud Native technologies in production is growing rapidly. Kubernetes is at the heart of this technological revolution. Naturally, the growth of cloud native technologies has been accompanied by the growth of the ecosystem that surrounds it. Of course, the complexity of cloud native technologies have increased as well. Just google for the phrase “Kubernetes is hard”, and you’ll get plenty of articles that explain this complexity problem. The best thing about the CNCF community is that problems like this can be solved by smart people building new tools to enable Kubernetes users: Projects like Knative and its Build resource extension, for example, serve to reduce complexity across a range of scenarios. Even though increasing complexity might seem like the most important issue to tackle, it is not the only challenge you face when transitioning to Cloud Native.

Security: Curl, OpenSUSE, Equifax and Kubernetes

  • Report from the curl bounty program
    We announced our glorious return to the “bug bounty club” (projects that run bug bounties) a month ago, and with the curl 7.65.0 release today on May 22nd of 2019 we also ship fixes to security vulnerabilities that were reported within this bug bounty program.
  • OpenSUSE Adds Option To Installer For Toggling Performance-Hitting CPU Mitigations
    With the newly released openSUSE Leap 15.1 they have added an option to their installer for toggling the CPU mitigations around Spectre / Meltdown / Foreshadow / Zombieload to make it very convenient should you choose to retain maximum performance while foregoing the security measures. But it also allows disabling SMT/HT from the installer should you prefer maximum security. When installing openSUSE Leap 15.1 today, I was a bit surprised to see a "CPU mitigations" option that allows toggling the value similar to the mitigations= kernel command line option.
  • Equifax just became the first company to have its outlook downgraded for a cyber attack
  • Equifax just became the first company to have its outlook downgraded for a cyber attack
    Moody’s has just slashed its rating outlook on Equifax, the first time cybersecurity issues have been cited as the reason for a downgrade. Moody’s lowered Equifax’s outlook from stable to negative on Wednesday, as the credit monitoring company continues to suffer from the massive 2017 breach of consumer data. “We are treating this with more significance because it is the first time that cyber has been a named factor in an outlook change,” Joe Mielenhausen, a spokesperson for Moody’s, told CNBC. “This is the first time the fallout from a breach has moved the needle enough to contribute to the change.” Equifax could not immediately be reached for comment.
  • Kubernetes security: 4 strategic tips
    As with all things security-related, “fingers crossed!” isn’t exactly a confident posture. Kubernetes offers a lot of powerful security-oriented features, and the community has shown a strong commitment toward the security of the project. But it’s always best to be proactive, especially if you or your teams are still relatively new to containers and orchestration. The fundamentals of security hygiene still largely apply, as we noted in our recent article, Kubernetes security: 5 mistakes to avoid. There’s also some new learning to be done to ensure you’re proactively managing the risks inherent in any new system, especially once it’s running in production.
