  129. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>SharePoint lists can handle only 5000 items? Does that mean I need to invest in a SQL database to handle my application data? I have more than 5000 documents in my Notes application – can I not use SharePoint? This is for SharePoint Online? There are several questions that we keep hearing about this across multiple conversations. Hence we decided to comprehensively address SharePoint List View Threshold in a FAQ session.</p>
  130. <h4><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-10704" src="http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SharePoint-List-Item-Threshold.jpg" alt="SharePoint List View Threshold" width="856" height="510" srcset="http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SharePoint-List-Item-Threshold-200x119.jpg 200w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SharePoint-List-Item-Threshold-300x179.jpg 300w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SharePoint-List-Item-Threshold-400x238.jpg 400w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SharePoint-List-Item-Threshold-600x357.jpg 600w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SharePoint-List-Item-Threshold-768x458.jpg 768w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SharePoint-List-Item-Threshold-800x477.jpg 800w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SharePoint-List-Item-Threshold.jpg 856w" sizes="(max-width: 856px) 100vw, 856px" /></h4>
  131. <h4>What is this problem?</h4>
  132. <p>When you open a link on SharePoint and you face the following error that crops up.</p>
  133. <h5>Error message:</h5>
  134. <h5>The number of items in this list exceeds the list view threshold, which is 5000 items. Tasks that cause excessive server load (such as those involving all list items) are currently prohibited.</h5>
  135. <p>This error message is commonly misunderstood to mean that a SharePoint list cannot hold more than 5000 items. This error is seen on</p>
  136. <ul>
  137. <li>SHAREPOINT ONLINE Office 365 – E3 &amp; E5</li>
  138. <li>SHAREPOINT 2013 ON PREMISES</li>
  139. <li>SHAREPOINT 2016 ON PREMISES</li>
  140. </ul>
  141. <p><a href="https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/2759051/-the-number-of-items-in-this-list-exceeds-the-list-view-threshold-error-when-you-view-a-sharepoint-online-list-in-office-365-enterprise">https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/2759051/-the-number-of-items-in-this-list-exceeds-the-list-view-threshold-error-when-you-view-a-sharepoint-online-list-in-office-365-enterprise</a></p>
  142. <h4>Reasons</h4>
  143. <p>This issue occurs because SharePoint Online uses the Large List Resource Throttling feature. By default, the list view threshold is configured at 5,000 items. When the defined item limit in a list is exceeded, the message is displayed.</p>
  144. <p><strong>The issue is not necessarily with storing, but rather with displaying the information.</strong> The SharePoint 5000 item limit threshold applies to the limit of items that are displayed in a given view.</p>
  145. <h4><strong>SharePoint List View Threshold:-</strong></h4>
  146. <p>SharePoint List row size &#8211; 8,000 bytes per row (Max Value)</p>
  147. <p>Details:</p>
  148. <p>Each list or library item can only occupy 8,000 bytes in total in the database. 300 bytes are reserved, leaving 7700 bytes for end-user columns</p>
  149. <p><strong>LIBRARY</strong></p>
  150. <p>SharePoint Documents Library &#8211; 30,000,000 per library</p>
  151. <p>Details:</p>
  152. <p>You can create very large document libraries by nesting folders, or using standard views and site hierarchy. This value may vary depending on how documents and folders are organized, and by the type and size of documents stored.</p>
  153. <h4>Addressing these limits</h4>
  154. <p>Here is a link from Microsoft that discusses this in detail</p>
  155. <p><a href="https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Manage-large-lists-and-libraries-in-SharePoint-b8588dae-9387-48c2-9248-c24122f07c59">https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Manage-large-lists-and-libraries-in-SharePoint-b8588dae-9387-48c2-9248-c24122f07c59</a></p>
  156. <p>The key is to understand the business requirement of the user and appropriately structuring the SharePoint application. These limits are usually breached in migration scenarios where you migrate data without understanding how SharePoint deals with the data. Here are some workarounds to address this issue</p>
  157. <ol>
  158. <li>Indexes</li>
  159. <li>Filter Views</li>
  160. <li>Items &#8211; Splitting</li>
  161. <li>Items &#8211; Sync</li>
  162. <li>Auto-Indexing List View (5000 Items Threshold)</li>
  163. </ol>
  164. <p>Filtered view with a column index is not only a way to retrieve items more efficiently, but a primary method of working with large lists and libraries without getting blocked.</p>
  165. <ul>
  166. <li><strong>INDEXES</strong></li>
  167. </ul>
  168. <p>Index retrieves items quickly and can improve list and library performance. You can create up to 20 indexes for a list or library. Unique values require an index and the ID column is automatically indexed. Because each index adds some overhead to every database operation to maintain the index, it’s best to only add indexes for the most common or likely columns used to query the list or library.</p>
  169. <ul>
  170. <li><strong>FILTERED VIEWS</strong></li>
  171. </ul>
  172. <p>When you create a filtered view, make sure that the first column in the filter expression is indexed and that the single filter expression that refers to the indexed column does not exceed the List View Threshold. Other columns you specify in the view filter may or may not be indexed, but the view does not use those indexes, even if the final result of the filtered view returns less than the List View Threshold. If you use two or more columns in the filter expression, use an AND operator but make sure the first column in the expression returns the lesser amount of data.</p>
  173. <ul>
  174. <li><strong>ITEMS- SPLITTING</strong></li>
  175. </ul>
  176. <p>Split the items into multiple lists so that no list exceeds 5,000 items.</p>
  177. <ul>
  178. <li><strong>ITEMS &#8211; SYNC</strong></li>
  179. </ul>
  180. <p>Create more views and sync the items to different views.</p>
  181. <p><strong>Auto Indexing View</strong></p>
  182. <p>Office 365 already uses the recently introduced “Automatic index management” to avoid hitting 5000 items threshold on a list or library view.</p>
  183. <p>To help reduce blocked operations, Office 365 automatically identifies and creates an index for a public view by doing the following:</p>
  184. <ul>
  185. <li>It Identifies lists and libraries that are approaching or have exceeded the List View Threshold.</li>
  186. <li>For each list or library, identifies views that don’t have an index, but would benefit from having one.</li>
  187. <li>Creates an index for those views. In some cases, two views might share the same index.</li>
  188. </ul>
  189. <p>Automatic index management occurs by default but you can turn it on or off by setting the allow automatic management of indices option in the list or library advanced settings page. Changing the setting does not affect an index you have created. But if you delete the index created by automatic index management, it might be automatically created again.</p>
  190. <p>Note that it might take up to 24 hours for this index to be created, and that this feature is not designed to work with private views.</p>
  191. <h4>Power BI / Reports</h4>
  192. <p>Power BI here to stay in Microsoft eco-system and it is evolving every day.  Power BI solution is designed to help business users gain insights from their data and visualize them in a self-service way.</p>
  193. <p>Power BI reports can take SharePoint Online Lists as inputs. It is possible to define SharePoint application with different lists (with less than 5000 limit) and using Power BI reports to showcase the insights from the lists in multiple ways.</p>
  194. <p>Here is a link on how Power BI can be connected to SharePoint Lists to generate relevant reports</p>

  216. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p></p>
  217. <p style="text-align: left;">In order to extract attachments or files from domino we can use the following methods,</p>
  218. <ul style="text-align: left;">
  219. <li>Using Agents and transfer file data as base64 to Node or Mongodb.</li>
  220. <li>Using http connection between node and domino and accessing the file through its URL</li>
  221. </ul>
  222. <p style="text-align: left;">The authentication part can be handled either by user authentication or Domino Web Server Application Programming Interface (DSAPI).</p>
  223. <p style="text-align: left;">Why to handle the attachments in Node or Mongodb?</p>
  224. <p style="text-align: left;"> This is because, each service call that we make to domino is very costly comparing to a service call in Mongodb or within node itself. So we prefer saving or handling attachments from Node or Mongodb for future use of the file or attachment.</p>
  225. <h4 style="text-align: left;">How to handle the attachments in Node or Mongodb?</h4>
  226. <p style="text-align: left;">There are two methods to handle attachments,</p>
  227. <ul style="text-align: left;">
  228. <li>Using File System(node)</li>
  229. <li>GridFS (Mongodb)</li>
  230. </ul>
  231. <ol style="text-align: left;">
  232. <li><strong>File Systems:</strong></li>
  233. </ol>
  234. <p style="text-align: left;"> In this method we will use the nodejs API <u>file-system</u> using which we will save the attachments from Domino to the file systems of our node server.</p>
  235. <p style="text-align: left;">To do so we need to install the following API into our server using npm.</p>
  236. <ul style="text-align: left;">
  237. <li>File-system</li>
  238. <li>Http</li>
  239. <li>Express</li>
  240. </ul>
  241. <p class="p1">
  242. <style type='text/css'>.reading-box-container-1 .element-bottomshadow:before,.reading-box-container-1 .element-bottomshadow:after{opacity:0.7;}</style><div class="fusion-reading-box-container reading-box-container-1" style="margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:84px;"><div class="reading-box" style="background-color:#f6f6f6;border-width:1px;border-color:#f6f6f6;border-left-width:3px;border-left-color:#a0ce4e;border-style:solid;"><div class="reading-box-additional">var app = require(‘express’)();</p>
  243. <p>var http = require(‘http’);</p>
  244. <p>var fs = require(&#8216;file-system&#8217;);</p>
  245. <p>app.get(‘/attachment’,function(request,response){</p>
  246. <p>var file = fs.createWriteStream(path to save the file in your file system);</p>
  247. <p>var options = {</p>
  248. <p>Host: servername (domino),</p>
  249. <p>path: path of the attachment in domino,</p>
  250. <p>method: &#8216;GET&#8217;,</p>
  251. <p>headers: {</p>
  252. <p>&#8216;Host&#8217;: servername (domino),</p>
  253. <p>}</p>
  254. <p>};</p>
  255. <p>var request = http.request(options, function (res) {</p>
  256. <p>res.pipe(file);</p>
  257. <p>res.on(&#8216;end&#8217;, function () {</p>
  258. <p>response.send(true);</p>
  259. <p>});</p>
  260. <p>});</p>
  261. <p>}</div></div></div><ol style="text-align: left;" start="2">
  262. <li><strong>GridFS:</strong></li>
  263. </ol>
  264. <p>GridFS is a specification for storing and retrieving files that exceed the BSON -document size limit of 16 MB.</p>
  265. <p>Instead of storing a file in a single document, GridFS divides the file into parts, or chunks, and stores each chunk as a separate document. By default, GridFS uses a chunk size of 255 kB; that is, GridFS divides a file into chunks of 255 kB with the exception of the last chunk. The last chunk is only as large as necessary. Similarly, files that are no larger than the chunk size only have a final chunk, using only as much space as needed plus some additional metadata.</p>
  266. <p style="text-align: left;">Reference: <a href="https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/gridfs/">https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/gridfs/</a></p>
  267. <p style="text-align: left;">As soon as you get the file or attachments data from Domino, just push the data as file into to grid fs of mongodb.</p>
  268. <p style="text-align: left;">To store file in Mongodb GridFS we are going to use the following API&#8217;s</p>
  269. <ul style="text-align: left;">
  270. <li>Mongodb</li>
  271. <li>gridFs</li>

  318. <p>Geocoding is the process of converting addresses into geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) which are used as markers in Google Maps. In this post, we are going to see how we can use Google maps API for Geocoding in Domino applications. For more information about <a href="https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/geocoding/intro">Google Geocoding</a>, please follow the link.</p>
  319. <p><strong><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-10618" src="http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/maps-api.jpg" alt="Google Maps API‎ for Geocoding" width="856" height="510" srcset="http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/maps-api-200x119.jpg 200w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/maps-api-300x179.jpg 300w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/maps-api-400x238.jpg 400w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/maps-api-600x357.jpg 600w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/maps-api-768x458.jpg 768w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/maps-api-800x477.jpg 800w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/maps-api.jpg 856w" sizes="(max-width: 856px) 100vw, 856px" />What do we need to know?</strong></p>
  320. <p>To understand this post, a fair knowledge on Lotus script and JSON is necessary. To parse and read the response from Google API, we need to use JSON Script Library in Lotusscript. Please click on the link to download <a href="https://openntf.org/Projects%5Cpmt.nsf/downloadcounter?openagent&amp;project=JSON%20LotusScript%20Classes&amp;release=1.0.6a&amp;unid=D2FA35434F35EC4A8625777B004986F9&amp;attachment=json.zip">JSON</a> Script Library.</p>
  321. <h4>Google Maps API‎ for Geocoding in Domino: How to?</h4>
  322. <p>There are several ways to consume RESTFUL web services in Lotus Notes. In that, one of the method is using CURL. However, CURL has to be installed on every client machine, if we want to run on a Notes Client application. Therefore, we are going to follow OLE Automation object based approach, assuming we are running on a Windows Client.</p>
  323. <p>The snippet below shows a function creating an OLE object and getting the response for the URL, that is passed as variant. We are going to use this function for getting our JSON response from Google Geocode API.</p>
  324. <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-10615" src="http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/geo.png" alt="Google Maps API‎ for Geocoding" width="975" height="185" srcset="http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/geo-200x38.png 200w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/geo-300x57.png 300w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/geo-400x76.png 400w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/geo-600x114.png 600w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/geo-768x146.png 768w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/geo-800x152.png 800w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/geo.png 975w" sizes="(max-width: 975px) 100vw, 975px" /></p>

  385. <content:encoded><![CDATA[IBM connections 6.0 is fresh off the oven, released on 27 March and opens up a new world of opportunities in enterprise social collaboration. We took the IBM Connections 6.0 for a test drive and explored the brand-new features.</p>
  386. <p>The latest version of Connections will bring new capabilities to enterprise social networks for a simpler collaboration across the workforce and employee on boarding experience. Connections 6 also integrates with IBM Cloud Object Storage, providing companies an ability to scale their storage needs with their employee’s usage while improving storage costs.</p>
  387. <h4>Here are the top six of the most awaited features of IBM Connections 6:</h4>
  388. <h4><strong>1.Orient Me:</strong></h4>
  389. <p>IBM Connections 6.0 has been redesigned to surface the most useful content from the user’s network. This feature leverages a new containerized, API-driven architecture to bring the most relevant information for the user to engage with – providing an interactive experience.</p>

  512. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Data migration from Quickr to Office 365 is an important step in getting your organization on a thriving enterprise collaboration platform. However, Quickr to Office 365 migration process can be complicated. If done incorrectly, they can be time consuming or worse; it can lead to crucial data loss and errors. In fact, according to </span><a href="http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/oedq/successful-data-migration-wp-1555708.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Oracle</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">, 75% of the migrations fail as a result of failing to verify and check for data quality (Oracle 2011). Considering that failed migrations can lead to lost time and money, the importance of getting a migration right the first time cannot be overstated.</span></p>
  513. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">With the right data quality methods in place, your organization can avoid losing time and money. You need to take careful steps to ensure data quality issues do not trip an otherwise successful Quickr to Office 365 Migration. This article will discuss common data issues in migration, and the best methods on how to solve them. </span></p>
  514. <p><b>3 Common Quickr to Office 365 Migration issues and how to prevent them </b></p>
  515. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Even after a Quickr to Office 365 migration appears to be complete, users may still face issues if the proper steps were not taken to ensure data quality. Here are 3 of the most common issues:</span></p>
  516. <ol>
  517. <li><b>Garbled attachments: <span style="font-weight: 400;">Users may find that the attachments that were uploaded in Quickr are altered. Either the type of attachment has changed, the content itself is filled with junk characters, or both.</span></b></li>
  518. <li><strong>Missing data:</strong><span style="font-weight: 400;"> After a migration, the user finds that some data, one or more users, or Quickr places are completely missing. </span></li>
  519. <li><strong>Access given to the wrong member:</strong><span style="font-weight: 400;"> In this case, privileges and permissions to a document or an entire ‘Quickr place’ have been changed. This can be a major problem if it causes access to sensitive data to fall into the wrong hands.</span></li>
  520. </ol>
  521. <p>The way to avoid the issues stated above is through verifying data quality during the planning phase of a migration. This process is used to determine that the data being migrated is fit for its intended use.</p>
  522. <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8630" src="http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/blog.png" alt="Quickr to Office 365 Migration" width="336" height="188" srcset="http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/blog-200x112.png 200w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/blog-300x168.png 300w, http://www.maargasystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/blog.png 336w" sizes="(max-width: 336px) 100vw, 336px" /></p>
  523. <p><b>How to ensure Data Quality for a Successful Migration</b></p>
  524. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The first phase in data quality, is to make sure all the data is properly collected and compatible with the target platform. Data quality is checked by examining these key dimensions; </span></p>
  525. <ul>
  526. <li><b>Accuracy– </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">This step involves careful verification that all data information is presented and listed correctly. It involves checking for simple mistakes, like making sure that no extra characters (like underscores) were added, or that spaces were not taken away, and checking for complex issues, like if the metadata is reading incorrect file information like, date, file size, creator, etc.</span></li>
  527. <li><b>Completeness–<span style="font-weight: 400;">All metadata</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;">information</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;">for the content being transferred must be complete, intact, and up to date. <a href="http://www.maargasystems.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Maarga</a> will verify that all the metadata info collected for the Office 365 migration matches the metadata information created in Quickr.</span></b></li>
  528. </ul>
  529. <ul>
  530. <li><strong>Validity-</strong> <span style="font-weight: 400;">In this part of the analysis, Maagra will look for errors and issues within the data itself that could cause migration problems. Detailed records are kept of any data issues, and the organization will be informed if some data, or a portion of some data, is erroneous and cannot be transferred. </span></li>
  531. </ul>
  532. <ul>
  533. <li><strong>Integrity-</strong> <span style="font-weight: 400;">During this step, all migrated data is carefully checked for accuracy and consistency across all platforms. All transfer rules are followed accordingly. </span></li>
  534. </ul>
  535. <ul>
  536. <li><strong>Accessibly-</strong> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Maagra will verifies that all privileges and permissions are transferred intact. </span></li>
  537. </ul>
  538. <p><b>Common pitfalls – Where things can go wrong in a Quickr to Office 365 Migration</b></p>
  539. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">These information attributes are places that can cause migration and data issues:</span></p>
  540. <p><b>Date Format: </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">There are some differences in supported date formatting between Quickr and Office 365.</span></p>
  541. <p><b>Comments: </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">Some symbols or comment sections may not be supported by the target platform.</span></p>
  542. <p><b>Language Supported: </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">Languages beside English must be identified as in some cases, these languages will need to be converted into a supported format like ASCII.</span></p>
  543. <p><b>Data Conversion: </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">Often times, data is not ready to be migrated dude to compatibility issues with the target platform. </span></p>
  544. <p><b>A 5 step approach to ensure data quality:-</b></p>
  545. <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In order to ensure a successful Quickr to Office 365 Migration, Maarga has tried and tuned a five step approach to achieve data quality repeatedly.</span></p>
  546. <p><b>Step 1:- Cleansing:</b><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Identify all of the organization’s meaningful and relevant data.  In addition, data that is irrelevant, data that are erroneous, and data that is relevant but incompatible is also identified during this stage. </span></p>
  547. <p><b>Step 2:- Matching:</b><span style="font-weight: 400;"> In the phase of extraction scan for duplicates in data in order to prevent them from being duplicated also on Office 365.</span></p>
  548. <p><b>Step 3:- Profiling: </b><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Analyse and identify all the data that is significant to the business. This step acts as an input for framing data quality rules</span></p>
  549. <p><b>Step 4:- Data Quality Rules: </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">In this step careful decisions are made based on the rules framed by learning the data, and the requirements obtained from other processes in data quality.</span></p>
  550. <p><b>Step 5:- Dashboard Monitoring: <span style="font-weight: 400;">Reports and dashboards are used to monitor the progress and success of the data quality.</span></b></p>
  551. <p>A measured approach to data quality and validation ensures a smooth transition and reduces the chance of data issues occurring in the crucial first few weeks of migration. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to unlock your organization’s collective energy with a thriving enterprise collaboration platform.</p>
