Newsgator in Good Mobile Browser
Jonathan Distad    

One of the great add-ons to the Sharepoint stack is Newsgator Social Sites.  I was on a recent client who is a highly regulated healthcare company and even though the Newsgator has a great mobile app, it wouldn’t work within their security model.  That model required that all BYOD (bring your own device) employees needed to  use Good.  Fair enough and we see that rather consistently – that is what Good is great at.  But the out of box experience with Newsgator didn’t looks so perfect.  It defaulted to the standard Sharepoint mobile experience – which didn’t meet the UX requirements of the client.  So they came to us and asked to develop something that could be used in the Good mobile browser.  Being the Newsgator partner of the year, I think we could handle that.  So after some technical magic we came up with the following:

It should be noted that the Good browser has some funkiness and ALSO that this is how it renders in Blackberry natively as well.  Once you get the code updates deployed you have to clear cache on the browser every now and again.  This is a bug that Good knows about within its browser and I trust they are working on it.  If you are interested in learning more about how this happens or would like a similar situation, let me know and I will connect you with our Microsoft team

Tue, Oct 14th 2014 10:15p   Mark Polly
All this week I’m at Dreamforce, the annual Salesforce conference.  Salesforce has come a long way with their platform and they’ve recently introduced Community Cloud.  Community Cloud is an evolution of their portal product and includes many features that we see in other enterprise-class, horizontal portals. We are seeing a lot of interest in portals from our healthcare clients.  At Dreamforce, I attended a session on using Salesforce Community Cloud in healthcare.  I blogged [read] Keywords: community enterprise

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
Tue, Oct 14th 2014 12:18p   Mark Polly
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. So why do their ads miss the mar [read] Keywords: facebook google

How to Implement Lighter Weight Portals, Part 3: Knockout Portlet
Thu, Sep 18th 2014 5:15p   Mark Polly
In this series, I’m showing how Portals don’t have to be heavyweight.  In Part 1, I wrote about how to make the infrastructure lighter by using cloud or IBM’s Pure System.  In Part 2, I introduced the concept of using IBM’s Web Content Manager system to build very simple portlets. Now in this final installment, I am going to extend the concepts introduced in Part 2 to show how we can build more complex portlets, but still keep everything lightweight.  To review quickly [read] Keywords: ibm application css dojo interface java javascript network portlet widget

To make the tasks of managing and installing portals, I recommended cloud solutions and for IBM, their PureApplication system both in the cloud and on-premise. In Part 2, I turn my attention to applications and how to make task of developing portal applications more lightweight. The goal of a portal is to combine applications and content at the glass fo [read] Keywords: admin ibm application applications interface java javascript portlet websphere websphere portal xml
