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

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

How to Implement Lighter Weight Portals, Part 2: Portlets
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 12:11p   Mark Polly
In part 1 of this series, How to Implement Lighter Weight Portals, I talked wrote about the infrastructure and installation aspects of Portals. 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

Using Mapping to Show Up-to-Date Content
Thu, Sep 4th 2014 11:12a   Michael Porter
Sometimes I’m amazed with what some of our developers do.  I’ve seen so many examples of code just thrown together. I’ve seen that code produce infinite loops, slow down load time by a factor of 10, and take down servers.  So when I see an example of someone thinking through how to efficiently create code, I’m amazed.  Anyway, Parshva Vora, a Sitecore developer here at Perficient, just blogged on how you can use mapping to create agile code and more efficiently get at [read] Keywords: database microsoft

How to Implement Lighter Weight Portals
Wed, Sep 3rd 2014 9:11a   Mark Polly
One of the complaints we often hear about horizontal portal systems is they are complicated and feel “heavy”. What makes a system feel heavy and how can we lighten the load? In a typical portal application we have to integrate multiple applications, content and document management systems, security, search, personalization, page management, etc, etc. is it any wonder why a portal would feel heavy when you try to bolt together all these systems? Some vendors have taken the approach th [read] Keywords: ibm application applications database db2 development portlet security server websphere websphere portal

Why Patient Portals Remain Healthcare’s Enigma
Wed, Sep 3rd 2014 9:11a   Michael Porter
CIO.com has an interesting article about why patient portals just aren’t popular.  I think the author, Brian Eastwood, gets some things right but also misses some key reasons or challenges.  Here’s what he got right. Adoption just isn’t very high. No one is using the patient portals that are out there. Doctors don’t use portals………….and they don’t have patients who use portals.  In other words, if a medical provider still thinks the best w [read] Keywords: applications office security server

Forrester Digital Experience Wave
Wed, Jul 30th 2014 3:12p   Mark Polly
Last week Forrester published their first Wave on Digital Experience Platforms.   I was at the IBM Digital Experience Conference and it sounded like IBM was expecting good news from Forrester in this wave.   In fact, Stephen Powers from Forrester was the Keynote speaker at the conference and one of the principal authors of the Wave.   Much to every one’s surprise, the Wave came out with nobody listed as a Leader.  Adobe, hybris (SAP), IBM and Sitecore came out as the Strong Performers [read] Keywords: ibm development sap

I don’t know how I missed it but Harish Bhavinachikar has a nice post on what you can do with modern UI tools in WebSphere Portal.  It’s on our Spark Blog but addresses something that keeps coming up again and again.  Frankly, the front-end tools have changed considerably in the last couple years.  Modern UI tools / frameworks like AngularJS, Bootstrap, JQuery, and a host of others make it easier to manage the UI and to further enforce separation of the front-end from the back-end [read] Keywords: ibm css javascript mobile portlet websphere websphere portal

Google Search With Sales Force
Wed, Jul 30th 2014 9:12a   Michael Porter
Brendan Callum, a director and whiz extraordinaire in our Salesforce practice, has a video out about what they did with Google Search and Salesforce. The video doesn’t go into a lot of detail but I find it extremely interesting that an appliance (older trend) searches the cloud (ongoing trend) in a secure fashion.  Of course, why do you need detail when someone developed a connector for it and all you have to do it buy, install, and go.

Migrating Web Content Using Kapow (Part 3)
Wed, Jul 30th 2014 9:12a   Michael Porter
I’ve blogged about this before with Candace’s Part 1 and Part 2. She just published Part 3 in the series.  Here she focuses on what to do once you’ve extracted and transformed the content.  In other words, getting that web content into the target system. In this case it’s Sitecore, a popular .NET based WCM.  I think it’s great Candace took the time to walk through a step by step approach to this.  Go to her post for the full set of steps and details.

Hilton Changes The Game, Mobile Enables It

Hilton announced on their web site that they plan to change the game when it comes to the guest experience at their hotels.  While the press release doesn’t state the investment, the Wall Street Journal quotes it at $550 million.  But what’s really cool is that the smart phone will become: Your room key: bypass the line and head straight to your room The way to choose your room: choose your room from a map of the hotel Special requests: get upgrade, ask for amenities, etc. At fir [read] Keywords: application integration mobile
