« One of the five requirements for being trustable as a business is simply to “demonstrate humanity.” Being human involves many things, including curiosity and intelligence, but in customer relationships all we’re really talking about is showing empathy and respectful familiarity to our customers, almost as if they were our personal friends. »

Introduction to Entando Architectural Model

Hi guys,
today I present to you the last post published on the blog Entando:
Entando architectural model is composed by three layers:
  • Data Access Layer: It is composed by all the elements which superintend the Persistence Layer. The main component are the DAO classes (Data Access Object) which are the only linking element between the framework and the data sources (Database, Filesystem, LDAP service directory etc.)
  • Business Layer: This is the core of the system. Here the concept of Entando service as manager of every macro functionality, takes place. This layer is built upon the Spring Framework, whose listener, during the system start-up, initializes all the services and injects them in the web application context as beans. The Business Layer utilizes the Data Access layer to get the data needed, gives to the higher layer (the Presentation layer) the elements to display and supports it in the execution of actions.
  • Presentation Layer: the aim of this layer is to build the graphic interfaces which represent the mean through which the users interact with the system. This layer gives a pure View layer (that is, a JSP without any business logic) and a "slim" controller (which checks the consistency of the data submitted and serves the data produced); both of them provide support to the layer below, the Business Layer. In the Entando framework this layer is divided in two parts:
             - the Portal View, referred to as Front-end
             - the Administration View referred to as Back-end

10 Management Lessons from Sir Edmund Hillary

In the fifties, the route to Everest was closed by Chinese-controlled Tibet. Nepal allowed one expedition per year. Hillary had been part of a British reconnaissance expedition to the mountain two years earlier in 1951. The 1953 Everest expedition consisted of a huge team of over 400 people, including 362 porters, 20 Sherpa guides and almost 5,000 kilograms of baggage. Expedition leader Hunt named two British mountaineers: Tom Bourdillon and Charles Evans as the first assault team. Hillary and Norgay were the second assault team. Bourdillon and Evans attempted the climb, but due to a failing oxygen system only reached the South Col, about 100 meters below the summit. Then Hillary and Norgay got their chance. A crucial last part of climbing Mount Everest is a 12-meter rock face, which Hillary managed to climb. Today it is known as the Hillary Step. They reached the 8,848-meter high summit, the highest point on Earth, at 11:30 a.m. on May 29, 1953.
