We believe that open source solutions overcomes challenges presented by proprietary branded applications.

On Thursday, December 12 from 6PM to 8PM, Chicago web development agency Duo Consulting will host a social business and interactive discussion about community websites. Leading the conversation will be John Carione, Senior Director of Content and Community Solutions at Drupal solutions provider Acquia. Carione will explore the power of open source software and how Drupal can power online communities and enterprise-level websites.

According to Duo Consulting CEO, Michael Silverman, “We are learning from users that proprietary platforms like Jive, Lithium, Yammer and others are inflicting pain points on their adopters. Common objections include the time to market for new projects, embracing innovation with best of breed tools and integrating with third party applications. We believe that open source solutions overcomes these and other challenges presented by proprietary branded applications.”

The free event is part of @DUO, a continuing education series spotlighting the rapid evolution of online marketing strategies. @DUO seminars are structured to stimulate active engagement and participation by attendees before, during and after the presentation. Good & plentiful food, beverages and ample networking opportunities provide the backdrop for an educational and enjoyable after-work conversation.

Advance registration is required and can be completed online. @DUO is held at Duo Consulting in River North, 20 W. Kinzie Street, Suite 1510, Chicago.
