Joomla Cms – Crbm Technology Configurations – 2 .mon Mistakes To Avoid-纪元1701

Configuration of .plex Joomla CMS and CRBM Platforms Joomla is a powerful framework for delivering .plex web portals. With over 4700 extensions and counting, the largest developer network in the world and the most user friendly interface has made the award winning Joomla CMS the fastest growing open source CMS project perhaps in the world. With millions of users and enthusiasts from all around the globe and a low cost of entry this is quickly be.ing the dominant content management system (CMS) for small businesses (SMB’s) and even larger enterprises and institutions. As Joomla integrators and Joomla .ponent Developers we deliver .plex Joomla configurations for a wide variety of customers. There are several layers in deploying a Joomla CMS project. * Planning and content architecture * Template Design and graphics * .ponents and Configurations * User experience * Customer Programming * Legacy System Integrations * SEO and Marketing * Joomla User Training * Ongoing Technical Support Just to name a few… With any technology there are different points of entry depending on the experience and technical aptitude of the humans interacting with the system. We (our CNP Consultants) try to help folks "Get the most value out of their technology investment". Yea you will see this in our marketing but this is much more than hype. Value can be the key to success or failure. Among the biggest mistakes we have seen folks make and even made ourselves are: .mon Mistake #1 Just because you can do something with technology does not always make it practical. I have personally implemented many powerful tools that ac.plish their intended functionality but they actually never get used to their full potential by the end customers. While these were fun for us to build as developers and to see something cool that works, it did not really serve any of us well since our clients customers do not use them and thus they have a significant investment. The key here is determining first the business priorities of the project and then making sure everyone is listening to the needs of the end customer. Just make sure you are clear why you are doing something and assess. Stay focused on what your customers are saying and what will yield the greatest return. Technology implementation can be a never ending pit you throw money into. If you are building your site for the shear ego of having a beautiful site with all kinds of creative features,of course we love to work with entrepreneurs with big ideas. However, like any relationship and any good investment a long term strategy is often much more practical. Our consulting customers get good advice about products and services that can grow their business or allow them to continue to get value from their investments. Technology is a moving target One of the many reasons we got behind the Joomla CMS project as a core .petency was because it was open source which offered freedom and scalable options for solving the greatest amount of business problems. We took the gamble from the trends in the market place that Joomla would continue to grow with features and stability and that the developer .munity would continue to be attracted to the Joomla framework thus building more confidence in the market place. An innovative and scalable open source platform like Joomla is a perfect foundation for meeting technological challenge. But wait there is more… A couple years ago, after a good year of working with Joomla we were looking for solutions that could actually help us build an all-in-one web based framework for managing our business in a Virtual Office Environment (everything accessible on the web). This is when after trying and implementing several CRM and project management tools ranging from SugarCRM to MS Project to Share Point we found [email protected] CRBM. This was the perfect platform since it was open source code base and integrated with the Joomla CMS and QuickBooks. Sounds .plicated but it is also very simple if you have time as your friend What we have learned as "early adopters" is that there is much more to it than the technology if you are going to be successful. .plex Joomla Integrations are getting simpler as this platform evolves. The old carpenters saying get the right tool for the right job is very good advice. The trick here is making sure we establish a clear roadmap and strategy for implementing technologies that will bring the greatest reward to your business and value to our customers. .mon Mistake #2 Just because you have the technology does not mean you should implement it. The second most challenging aspect of implementing a .plicated project is the thought process of "let’s do it all at once". I have often had clients that want to load up their sites with a ton of .ponents and then they want to throw these new features out to their customers or workforce all at once. Well this is a huge horse pill that never gets swallowed. Hate to say it but until recently I have been guilty of this myself. There is a fine line between "Build it and they will .e" and "Here take a bite and let me know if you like it". Remember this is all about relationship management Make sure what you are presenting is honest and has substance you do not want to overload, overwhelm folks with more information than customer are particularly interested in at the moment. You also want to put out information and web tools in a way that they want to have them presented. As in listen well and be a good conversationalist. Such is the case even more now with the Social Technology boon. I used to say "it is not hard to fall in love since people are impulsive by nature but the real challenge is falling in love with the right one". The same is true with technology. It can be easy to get excited about some new features and want to add them right away to your site. In relationships of any kind they are best nurtured over time. Deploying technology is a .plex multi dimensional relationship. Moving too fast has greater risk of failure for everyone involved. You actually have several relationships and processes that need careful consideration over time: * Solutions: Customer Needs – Business Process Need – Technology Implementation * Relationships: Vendor Teams – Client Teams – Customers In Conclusion work smarter with a good plan Plan carefully and gather the right information about your customers and how technology can get you the best results as it relates to your business strategy. Before you travel anywhere it is a good idea to get directions, a map or invest in a GPS. Why would you not want to invest in good quality consulting to help guide you along the path of implementing technology? Joomla Roadmap and Planning Guide Value Builder Methodology We have since built consulting practices to address these two .mon mistakes folks make with .plex technology implementations. Yea sure we have to be geeks and able to wire all this stuff up and yes we do this well but the trick to getting value out of your technology is much more that the groovy tools we can dish out. With a few exceptions, most of the technology these days is all ready built and what that means is there is a greater need for configuration and being able to map the humans with the technology in a way that will allow you to stay focused on your priorities. This should help get you on the right path. 相关的主题文章:
