For the second year in a row I am leaving San Francisco and Oracle OpenWorld very excited. Last year Oleg and I started to work on the idea, which eventually became the Nexus Bridge for Siebel Open UI. This year I have presented the process for running Siebel UX improvements projects at the Siebel Customers Advisory Board meeting in San Francisco. Nexus Bridge is a crucial technical enabler in Siebel UX projects run by both by Idea Port Riga and several other customers.

This autumn, Idea Port Riga partnered with the Siebelhub team to share our vision about improving Siebel UX with you, the great Siebel community!

While working on this post, we came across the "CRM Technology Value Matrix 2019" by Nucleus Research. Their verdict that "Siebel CRM has the most breadth of capabilities," yet "the product falls behind in usability," perfectly matches our view on Siebel in 2019.

Siebel UX is not up to date. Siebel Open UI introduction in 2012 made it possible for Siebel customers to change Siebel UI's look & feel by modifying CSS and writing small pieces of jQuery code. By doing so, you can make Siebel look in accordance with the corporate brand book and slightly improve how users feel using the system. Still, these changes do not bring Siebel UX to the level users expect from web applications in 2019 when it comes to visual aesthetics and ease of use.

This article will guide you through configuring integration between SalesForce and DropBox, how to avoid user interaction to grant access to DropBox and also how to keep SalesForce notified about changes in DropBox.

There are some situations when you think it would be good to take files from DropBox, parse it in SalesForce and make some operations according to parsed data within SalesForce.

Sometimes there is an urgent need popping up in the middle of an investigation of what is happening with your application server – e.g., a process is showing up, but refuses to serve network connections. There could be thousands of reasons why it is stuck, but one of the most common and a classic problem is deadlocked threads, i.e. threads that didn't share some of the resources on start-up correctly.

Aug 27, 2015 8:08:40 AM / by Guntis Valters posted in Siebel

Suppose that weeks of developing business processes, building user interface and integrating Siebel with other systems are gone at last; implementation can be considered completed, and users have started to work with Siebel.
