  • Publication number: 20180107751
    Abstract: A role-based social network follow request that identifies a specified user role to follow within a social network is received from a social network user. A social network role-based query, derived from the specified user role identified within the role-based social network follow request, is executed. In response to executing the social network role-based query, role-based information of social network users within the social network is retrieved. Another social network user that matches the specified user role is identified based upon the retrieved role-based information of the social network users. Role-based social network following of the matching other social network user is configured for the requesting social network user.

  • Publication number: 20170010871
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention address deficiencies of the art in respect to wiring components in a component based application and provide a method, system and computer program product for heuristically assembling components in a component based application. In one embodiment, a data processing system configured to assemble component based applications can include a component aggregation application including an application builder configured to assemble components into a component based application. The system further can include a property broker coupled to the component aggregation application and configured to apply a wiring scheme to selected components in a component based application. Finally, a collaborative heuristic integration matching engine (CHIME) can be coupled to the property broker and a data store of behaviorally derived data, the CHIME including program enabled to suggest components for assembly in a component based application based upon behaviorally derived data in the data store.

  • Patent number: 8935359
    Abstract: The insertion of content into media streams is provided. A media stream is monitored by a media server computer, the monitored media stream having at least one marker designating an associated insertion position within the media stream. A marker is selected to insert personalized social-awareness based content into the media stream. Social awareness information associated with a target of the monitored media stream is identified. The social awareness information is utilized to select personalized social-awareness based content. The personalized social-awareness based content is inserted into the monitored media stream at the corresponding insertion position associated with the selected marker to transform the media stream.

  • Patent number: 8898316
    Abstract: An enhanced collaboration system makes it possible for viewers of post-original video presentations to collaborate online with others who are viewing the same video presentation at the same time. A collaborate room controller establishes and maintains sets of online collaboration sessions for the post-original video presentation with each collaboration session being associated with a particular time slot in the presentation. Typically, a viewer is assigned to a collaboration session that is associated with the user's current view point; i.e., the presentation time slot the user is currently viewing. A graphical user interface conveys information about existing collaboration sessions to the user to assist the user in selecting an appropriate collaboration session.

  • Publication number: 20140189492
    Abstract: A method, system and apparatus for configuring a page for drag and drop arrangement of content artifacts can include populating a content artifact registry with a plurality of content artifacts, each of the content artifacts defining a draggable and droppable form of a particular type of page content. The method further can include defining a drop zone within the page to receive a dragged and dropped one of the content artifacts, the drop zone defining a consumable type of page content and an action to undertake when consuming a dropped one of the content artifacts having a particular type of page content consistent with the consumable type of page content.

  • Patent number: 8701204
    Abstract: Referenced content is shared through collaborative business applications by detecting referenced content in an electronic communication. The referenced content references content stored in an external repository. The referenced content identifies a registered external repository connector. A determination is made whether an Access Control List (“ACL”) for the referenced content lacks an entry for a recipient of the electronic communication. Also an ACL entry is generated for the recipient in response to the recipient lacking an entry in the ACL for the referenced content. The ACL entry controls access to the referenced content for the recipient.

  • Patent number: 8589594
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products are disclosed for dynamically integrating software resources (such as web services and other back-end software resources) using the services of a content framework (such as a portal platform). A portlet model is leveraged to allow programmatic portlets to serve as proxies for web services, thereby extending portlets beyond their traditional visual role. A deployment interface and a system interface are described for these portlet proxies. The deployment interface is used for composing new web services, and a composition tool is described. The system interface allows for run-time management of the web services by the portal platform. The service provider for a particular function may be bound to the portlet proxy at development time or at run-time.
