Forum’s Drupal Project Included in 8 Amazing Drupal Launches E-book

Click here to read the eBookThe KM Initiative, guided by regionals in the KM Partners Group, continues to attract attention from the Drupal and Salesforce communities for it’s scope and innovation. The Forum’s revamped Knowledge Management platform is included in  8 Amazing Drupal Launches, a new e-book from Pantheon, the premier enterprise hosting provider for Drupal. Pantheon clients include Cisco, the New Republic, Arizona State University, YMCA, AAA, and 30,000 other sites.

Pantheon highlights our project and the KM Partners as the “first non-developers to deploy sites on Pantheon One,” Pantheon’s enterprise solution for hosting many sites on one platform.

In the e-book, ThinkShout‘s Sean Larkin describes how his team saved more than 100 hours of development time and launched 17 websites on a single Drupal distribution without using the conventional method of Multisite, a development environment that allows sites to share a single Drupal installation (core code, contributed modules, and themes).

As our live sites begin to launch through December and early 2014, the KM Partners are looking forward improved web experiences for their member grantmakers through cleaner user interfaces, simpler navigation, advanced search engines, enhanced user profiles, and more!

KM Initiative Showcases Collaboration at Dreamforce

The Forum’s Val Rozansky, along with Kim Snipes from Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers and Bill Corkill from Council of Michigan Foundations, recently presented on the KM Initiative’s new Drupal-Salesforce platform at Dreamforce, the Salesforce users conference. The conference had a physical turnout of 140,000 attendees with over 100,000 participating remotely. Over 5,000 nonprofit organizations were in attendance, including many foundations.

The KM session was incredibly well received and our work is garnering much attention from the philanthropic and technology sectors alike.  Collaboration like ours is practically unprecedented in both fields and the longevity of our initiative lends credence to our proven track record. Work from our project is appreciated for its innovation and has already begun to impact both sectors. The Salesforce module in Drupal which ThinkShout built for our platform is now in use by over 1,000 websites and is even powering United Way’s integration.

A recording, PowerPoint slides, and notes from the session will be available soon.
