Apps zijn veel meer dan enkel applicaties op de smartphone of tablet. In feite zijn het de bouwstenen van een community-gedreven platform. Apps zijn immers onderdeel van het softwareplatform en de vraag uit de gebruikersgemeenschap bepaalt of een app wel of niet wordt ontwikkeld.

Onlangs bleek uit de E-Government Survey 2014 dat Nederland op de vijfde plaats staat bij de ontwikkeling van de e-overheid en elektronische dienstverlening. Deze positie in het VN-rapport klinkt op zichzelf niet slecht, maar in 2012 stonden we nog op de tweede plaats. Het onderzoek naar de ICT-projecten van de overheid is natuurlijk niet voor niets gaande. Ik zie echter...

Iedere organisatie moet zowel online als offline de relaties met zijn klanten (klantcontact) en stakeholders onderhouden. Eigenlijk zou het niet van belang mogen zijn of die contactmomenten nu via de website, een mobiele app of telefonisch plaatsvinden. Toch blijken deze kanalen in de praktijk vaak gescheiden te zijn, waardoor een gewaardeerde klant onbedoeld een anonieme bezoeker kan...

One of the biggest questions in web analytics right now is “How do we know users are reading or looking at our content?” In the past, Liferay has used “page views” and “number of clicks” to determine the popularity of our content, but we’re now learning that these methods do not necessarily determine the success of a page. Page views show how users are navigating through your site,...

Several months ago, I read an article talking about a new concept for me: the Hacker in Residence. Since then, I saw pretty clearly that it would be a wonderful initiative within Liferay, given that we're a global and distributed company, with several teammates working from different countries and timezones.

This is a repeat post - same topic as in July 2013, when I've solved exactly the same problem on Liferay 6.1. Now it's time to update the solution to Liferay 6.2. But I am ahead of myself: What seems to be the problem? Liferay offers various layout templates that determine how the portlets are arranged on the page. When you build a Liferay page, you can drag&drop portlets on...

The firestarters aren't the ones who are kicking...
