Call Control using 3CX

by Matthew M. Landis Robert Lloyd | February 2010 | Networking & Telephony

Once your extensions are working, we can begin exploring call routing also called as call control. When someone calls from the outside world, what do you want to do with the call? How do you want your calls to get to an extension? Unless you want your calls to go directly to an extension, you will need to configure one or more of the following features which we'll be covering in this article by Matthew M. Landis and Robert Lloyd, authors of The 3CX IP PBX Tutorial:

  • Ring groups (also called Hunt groups in other PBX systems)
  • Digital Receptionists or Auto-attendants

Calendaring with Plone 3 for Education

by Erik Rose | December 2009 | Content Management Open Source

We can use events to represent due dates and exams for a school and reorganize them dynamically using collections. But a school's use of events will likely span athletics, music performances, conferences, and much more.
In this article by Erik Rose, we embark on a deeper study of Plone events and see how to:

  • Harness the best-of-breed Plone4Artists Calendar product to improve the display of event listings
  • Gather events from across a site into a central calendar, culling out class-specific due dates and assignments
  • Let visitors browse a single hierarchy of events arranged by subject while still allowing edit permissions to be delegated along organization boundaries
  • Represent recurring events

Cache replication

by Samir Bhatt | August 2013 | e-Commerce Open Source

Caching is a very important technique to boost the performance of the system. Liferay Portal, by default, caches resources of the persistence layer and the service layer. By default, Liferay Portal uses the Ehcache framework for caching, and it caches resources in memory and the filesystem. In the clustered environment, each Liferay Portal node will have its own copy of the cache. It is very important to invalidate or replicate the cache on all the Liferay Portal nodes if the cache is invalidated or updated on any of the nodes. To implement this we need to replicate the cache.

In this article by Samir Bhatt, author of Liferay Portal Performance Best Practices, we will learn multiple options to replicate Ehcache across the cluster.

Business Process Modeling

by Kapil Pant | August 2008 | BPEL SOA Web Services Oracle

A business process is a set of coordinated activities that are performed either by humans or by tools with an objective to realize a certain business result. The order of these activities and the efficiency of those who perform the activities determine the overall performance of a business process. It is very much in the interest of every company to have business processes that are efficient and include only necessary activities, because this will allow them to work faster and more efficiently. In this article by Matjaz B. Juric and Kapil Pant, we will look at business process modeling, the main objective of which is to develop a process model that defines the existing process flow in detail.

Business Blogging On The Up - Technorati State of the Blogosphere 2008

by Paul Thewlis | October 2008 | MySQL Content Management Open Source PHP WordPress

"Technorati recently published its annual report, State of the Blogosphere 2008. As usual, it makes interesting reading, especially for those of us interested in business blogging.

The report shows that Technorati has indexed 133 million blogs since 2002. 1.5 million blogs have been updated in the last 7 days and 7.4 million in the last 120 days. These figures support my argument in the first chapter of my book, WordPress For Business Bloggers, that business bloggers should not be put off by the total number of blogs out there because, in fact, only a small proportion are active."
