Drupal

Drupalers, what do you want?

It's no secret that Drupal's success depends heavily on the collaborative community culture and the continuous communication process between all members of the community. It’s not for nothing that we embrace the “come for the code, stay for the community” mantra.

Today we're asking you - an agency, freelancer or a lone webmaster - to think with us a little bit about the quality of security protection your service provider delivers to ensure your website and online services are running smoothly.

It's been a pleasure! #DrupalConDublin

Dublin, 27. Sept. 2016. “Describe the DrupalCon in just one word!” - “EXCITING!”

First of all, I want to thank everyone who made my first DrupalCon this awesome and extra special!

Our whole team enjoyed a week full of new experiences, great sessions and - of course - old and new friends! The place, Dublin, was perfect to “seal” a new friendship or strengthen an old one with a good morning coffee (thanks to Commerce Guys by actualys and Mailchimp, the two coffee break sponsors!) or a good cold Guinness (I tried to remember the bar names, but actually I guess I sealed a lot of new friendships..).

 

Meet us in Dublin at booth #105!

Only 20 days are left until we head to Dublin to join the DrupalCon 2016! It’s the first time that we, the Drupal agency team from Bright Solutions (which is the "birthplace" of Drop Guard), arrive at a Con only with our Drop Guard team, so we can focus on our most famous contribution to the Community: our update management service tool “Drop Guard”.

Yes, we’d be happy to show people the great values which Drop Guard provides - but most of all we look forward to personal and honest conversations to progress in our work and as part of the Community!

 

Free Drupal security for a good cause

Being casual about open source security is not funny. Headlines like the Panama Papers this year showed that an improvident dealing with security and updates can cause a huge damage. Fees are still a crucial reason for people to hesitate to secure their business by using charged services. This is not a pitty - this is grave.

There are many people out there who give a lot without receiving a reward. They see more benefits in helping and strengthen people, any kind of living being or purpose than in a regular salary.

undpaul, welcome to update management automation!

More and more, midsize companies are excited by Drop Guard, recognising the benefits and values of using this tool.

This time we want to present undpaul to you, a Drupal agency from Hannover, Germany, that is built by an enthusiastic team of Drupal developers. Eleven team members support Anja Schirwinski and Johannes Haseitl, founders and CEOs, in their daily effort to please the needs of their customers best.

In doing so, the whole company let Drop Guard support them and let it provide continuous Drupal and website security for their clients. We asked the undpaul about what changed since they started to use Drop Guard on a daily basis.

 

"Why we don’t (continuously) update our Drupal websites"

 

Two weeks ago we decided to run a little survey asking Drupal folks one simple, but provocative question “Why I don’t update my website continuously”. I decided to present you the results - and I can tell that some serious voices got out!

First, I want to speak highly of least 38 of 78 participants, who actually update their website continuously and seem to know exactly what happens if they wouldn’t do it.

How Drupal shops can sell SLAs with 40% more profit & recurring revenue

To join, use the following YouTube link.

Most Drupal shops depend on a transactional business model which requires hunting for new projects every month. Building Drupal applications is a great base to add more value to your business by selling support contracts, to grow your recurring revenue and deliver continuous value for your clients that have built their online business with Drupal. Using the transactional project business strategically to sell support contracts can help Drupal shops to grow fast and sustainable.
