More Tracking of Exports

CiviCRM - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 00:39
  CiviCRM does not natively log whenever an export of contacts occurs. This can be problematic for organisations with compliance and auditing obligations. In response to this The Australian Greens have developed an Extension which creates a log file for each CiviCRM domain in the ConfigAndLog directory and logs every time a CiviCRM user performs an export from within CiviCRM. The current log format is as follows:

What Constitutes an "Open" Platform

Concursive - Fri, 12/28/2018 - 12:25

There is no rigid, hard and fast definition for what constitutes an open platform.  Rather, arriving at an answer for whether a solution is open versus proprietary/closed is somewhat akin to the adage penned by SCOTUS Justice Potter Stewart when remarking as to what constitutes pornography — "[You] know it when [you] see it”.  The same is true here. "Openness" is not a binary determination; it's found along a continuum.  The way we think about it is the more open the approach, the more it incorporates amounts of the following six elements: &nbsp

Evaluating Trade-Offs and ROI of an Open Approach

Concursive - Fri, 12/28/2018 - 10:20

When making important capital or strategic decisions any manager worth their salt immediately tries to get a handle on the fundamental tradeoffs presented by the various options.  Discipline of this nature should be applied to technology investment decisions.  But adding to their challenge is their normally complex and even iterative nature, leading to a process that generally looks as much like art as it does science.  For example, grappling with questions like “What happens to our positioning vis a vis competitors if we build X, versus Y, versus nothing?” can lead to paralysis.  With the exception of large enterprises that have analysts aplenty, answers are generally incomplete at best or inactionable at worst. We coach organizations that while they must struggle with those types of questions, in parallel a

Where "Open Solutions" Fit Well

Concursive - Fri, 12/28/2018 - 08:20

The size of the organization in which a solution is being considered is usually a key determinant of fit.  Large enterprises, highly invested in a single or few platforms like SAP or Oracle, generally apply open strategies to narrower areas within their development roadmaps.  Which is how Linux penetrated the enterprise; it was first used in projects deemed less than mission critical and once found to be robust, safe and cost-effective spread more broadly. For the vast range of smaller and mid-sized organizations, and specifically with respect to Concursive technologies, open strategies are most applicable where some combination of the following conditions apply: Uncertainty

Paths to sustainability

CiviCRM - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 06:01

Last month I attended Sustain Summit 2018: an inspiring 'one-day event for open source sustainers' organised by Open Collective. It was great to spend a day with people who are working hard to tackle the sustainability problem. Some focused on their own projects, others looking more broadly across the open source ecosystem. The sustainability conversation has moved on significantly since the last time I looked, in about 2013, and there are lots of new ideas and projects with the potential to impact how we work.
