Sitecore: Moving Indexed Content Tree Items
Jamie Stump    

If you’ve ever worked with large amounts of data within Sitecore, chances are you’ve worked with Lucene Indexes (or the newly branded Sitecore.Search namespace and indexes).  If you haven’t worked with these, it’s worth the time (and initial frustration) to learn about them, as they really do improve performance when querying the Sitecore content tree.  There are of course some gotchas relating to Indexes though.  One I’ve already covered is using a MustNot QueryOccurance.  Another is what happens when a content manager moves an item into or out of a folder that is the root for one of your indexes?  This post will cover some of our experiences in how you can get your indexes to properly display accurate data in this situation.

When we built Perficient.com using Sitecore, we set up a number of Sitecore Search indexes for different pieces of our data, like Events and Awards.  One of the issues we ran into was that our indexes weren’t updating properly if a content manager dragged a content item from a folder that was indexed, and moved it into another folder (either indexed, or non-indexed).  We did some experimenting, and came up with the following fairly simple and straight-forward rule set regarding moving content that is in indexed folders.

Moving Content into or out of an index

  1. If you remove items from an indexed folder by dragging them to another folder or by deleting them, you must Smart Publish the indexed folder.  If you publish incrementally, the index will not be rebuilt.  Worse, Smart Publish or Republishing after an incremental publish will NOT correct the problem.  At that point, the only thing that works is to Rebuild the index with the Index Viewer.
  2. The same is not true of dragging items into an indexed folder.  Any kind of publish will update the index

After we discovered those sets of rules, we came to the simple conclusion that when training content managers, we need to point out to them what the indexed folders are and tell them that whenever they update an item within one of those folders, they should perform a Smart Publish.

Anemic IT Growth or Budgeting Shift?
Mon, Nov 17th 2014 3:18p   Michael Porter
ZDNet reports on a recent Gartner report of 2015 IT budgets.  They call it, “IT Spending for 2015 Anemic amid Digital Shift.”  Here’s the breakdown on who creates vs who approves the IT budget. I don’t interpret it quite this way. Yes, IT budget growth is anemic but there’s on telling piece of information in the ZDnet article The upshot: Spending on digital innovation will be funded outside of the IT budget. So yes, spending is anemic within [read] Keywords:

Digital Transformation is All Around Us…Again.
Tue, Nov 11th 2014 8:19a   Mark Polly
The phrase “Digital Transformation” has re-emerged as a new phenomenon.  Google tells me there are 49 million (49,000,000) search results for the words Digital Transformation. First, why do I say it is a phenomenon?  It seems that many of our leading think-tanks are talking about digital transformation.  Here are some examples: Earlier this year, MIT Sloan Management Review posted this article: The Nine Elements of Digital Transformation Forrester is predicting that in 2015 &# [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm enterprise google mobile network

Drug or Drug Device Portals
Thu, Oct 23rd 2014 10:12a   Michael Porter
Eugene Sefanov has a nice post on the value of a patient portal for those who use a specialty drug or drug device.  He goes into some detail on the possible use cases with that kind of portal.  I like the approach  he takes.  Just being prescribed a drug doesn’t mean you are going to get the right outcome.  Anything you can do to ensure the patient has all the support he or she needs will improve that outcome. An effective way to provide patient support is through a portal that is sp [read] Keywords: collaboration application mobile

Salesforce Community Cloud can be used for a variety of applications, including sales communities, customer self-service, marketing campaign management, or anywhere you need portal, content and social combined into one experience.

Successful Partner Communities with Salesforce

Zero Motorcycles needed a way to consolidate multiple partner facing systems into a simplified user interface, track sales and monitor participation programs and automate workflows. As we’ve seen from other customers, partners had to login to multiple systems.  Using Community Cloud, Zero was able to provide one interface for the partners to login into and get information and process leads and improve sales. Zero’s original model was B2C, thinking that consumers would order electri [read] Keywords: collaboration community exchange exchange interface mobile

Content Marketing is Inherently Flawed?
Fri, Oct 10th 2014 11:12a   Michael Porter
In the past week I’ve either read or listened to two heads of global marketing for two well known brands.  Both had a similar story with different sides of the same coin.  Both had a message that dealt with Marketers having to forget about telling their brand story and go with what customers want to hear.  The first was a session about leveraging social data with Michelle Lapierre who is the Sr. Director of Customer Experience at Marriott Rewards. The second is an article at cmo.com dis [read] Keywords: facebook linkedin oracle twitter

Why Do Contextual Ads Fail
Tue, Oct 7th 2014 3:12p   Michael Porter
I’ve blogged about the personalization failure before.  Now it looks like others are catching on to the ultimate failure on their part………… even as they harvest huge amounts of private information about us.  This article in ComputerWorld outlines the issues.  The author Mike Elgan hits the topic of privacy quickly and never lets it go: Companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon violate our privacy in order to show us relevant ads.
