  • Have deployed 20+ websites for our clients. Most of them are book publishing websites

    Connector ideas have been proposed to Ektron (Widget based and DXH connector based). This will be discussed later in presentation.

    pimsleurapproach.com: Have optimized this website to handle 90,000 users per minute. We had 4 production servers and a very optimized C# code with advanced caching to achieve this.

    We have used Esync on most deployments. Used Esync over load balanced environment. Team is working on a concept for getting an undo option, which is not there currently in Esync.
  • B1: Includes 5 certified Ektron developer and 1 certified Ektron Administrator.
    B2: Performed well in Partner accreditation tests.
    B3: Our exclusive experience in Ektron alone.

    Few definitions from the word cloud:
    Taxonomy
    Large amounts of content can be an organizational nightmare, and it takes a far-reaching categorization model to allow content to be efficiently repurposed, searched for, and organized on a site. Ektron’s taxonomy, a one-to-many relationship model, follows natural and organic methods all the way down to the content level, enabling an intuitive organization scheme that reflects how people think.
    Esync 
    Automate the secure provisioning of web content, code, assets and templates from development through production. Deploy only the necessary changes, from a single content update to an entire site, speeding time to Web and eliminating site downtime.
    Geomapping Features with a Mobile Phone
    Mobile browsing makes the geographic location of a site visitor very important information. For example, if a mobile visitor is accessing your site, you can show nearby stores and special promotions.
    PageBuilder
    You first create a wireframe. Next, define the dropzones; areas of the page on which a content creator drags and drops widgets. http://documentation.ektron.com/cms400/v85/webhelp/Building%20PageBuilder%20Pages/BuildingPages.htm
  • The explanations are in the slides to follow.

We have converted existing 2-tier architecture of many websites to 3-Tier ArchitectureMobile Preview: We upgraded websites to support web applications on mobile using latest features.Mobile applications require different, more compact navigational aids, and content must fit into a smaller footprint. Mobile Web sites need "tap to call" options to take advantage of cellular technology, a robust search, flexible menus, and quick access to content. Ektron 8.6 provides all features to design a website for mobileeSync Setups: Esync is enhanced by ektron in version 8.5 and 8.6+.So we have upgraded websites for making syncing full fledged.
