  • BANKS VS MTV
    Airline navigation system VS LIFETIME



    DEFINITION: The site encompasses a wide sector of your company’s revenue and is mission critical (not large)
  • YES!
    No 24/7 support contracts, who to blame, no obvious history of enterprise, open source punks








  • Continues to move towards enterprise
    Moving that way, never get there because it’s a framework
    Business sector keeps dumping money in
    Enterprise means different things to different companies


























  • Scaling patterns already exist
    At the top of the stack
    Good development practices also make drupal scale
  • By participating in it! DO-OCRACY
    Commercial support
    Better than vendor lock-in
  • Community checks and balances (Expression Engine VS Drupal)
    Security through obscurity
