Amazee Labs: A new Intranet Platform for Allianz Suisse

Planet Drupal - 18 January 2018 - 11:48pm
A new Intranet Platform for Allianz Suisse

We are proud to present the new intranet platform for Allianz Suisse. The intranet platform is designed to show the Allianz team news, events and updates and offers all the advantages of a cloud-based platform while conforming to the company’s stringent security standards.

Sian Wheeler Fri, 01/19/2018 - 08:48

The brand new intranet platform is an internal business tool for Allianz Suisse and thus, not accessible to the public. Thanks to the single sign-on function, users can now log in via Drupal using their existing Allianz account, while the ability to comment on and “like” different topics makes the whole system that bit more engaging.

About Allianz

Allianz Suisse offers a range of innovative products and services in all aspects of insurance, pensions and wealth management. With premiums of around CHF 3.6 billion, Allianz Suisse is one of the largest providers of property, casualty and life insurance in Switzerland.

About the Project

The project was developed based on Drupal 8, in partnership with drunomics. The platform features a Kerberos-based single sign-on functionality. All users are signed in automatically, while employees are also able to post their own replies to comments and “like” their favourites. Elasticsearch makes it easy to locate documents and content anywhere on the platform, providing the ideal solution in an age where instant access to information is a prerequisite.

PreviousNext: Analysing churn in Drupal core

Planet Drupal - 18 January 2018 - 2:59pm

After reading a blog post by Matthias Noback on keeping an eye on code churn, I was motivated to run the churn php library over some modules in core to gauge the level of churn.

Is this something you might like to do on your modules? Read on for more information.

by Lee Rowlands / 19 January 2018 What is churn

As Matthias details in his blog post - churn is a measure of the number of times a piece of code has been changed over time. The red flags start to crop up when you have high complexity and high churn.

Enter churn-php

Churn php is a library that analyses PHP code that has its history in git to identify high churn/complexity scores.

You can either install it with composer require bmitch/churn-php --dev or run it using docker docker run --rm -ti -v $PWD:/app dockerizedphp/churn run /path/to/code

Some results from core

So I ran it for some modules I look after in core, as well as the Drupal\Core\Entity namespace.

Block Content File Times Changed Complexity Score core/modules/block_content/src/Entity/BlockContent.php 41 6 1 core/modules/block_content/src/BlockContentForm.php 32 6 0.78 core/modules/block_content/src/Plugin/Block/BlockContentBlock.php 20 6 0.488 core/modules/block_content/src/Tests/BlockContentTestBase.php 16 6 0.39 core/modules/block_content/src/BlockContentTypeForm.php 18 4 0.347 core/modules/block_content/src/Controller/BlockContentController.php 8 6 0.195 Comment File Times Changed Complexity Score core/modules/comment/src/CommentForm.php 60 45 1 core/modules/comment/src/Entity/Comment.php 55 25 0.548 core/modules/comment/src/Tests/CommentTestBase.php 33 29 0.426 core/modules/comment/src/Controller/CommentController.php 32 20 0.274 core/modules/comment/src/CommentViewBuilder.php 37 16 0.25 core/modules/comment/src/Plugin/Field/FieldFormatter/CommentDefaultFormatter.php 32 18 0.24 core/modules/comment/src/Form/CommentAdminOverview.php 29 17 0.191 core/modules/comment/src/CommentAccessControlHandler.php 17 28 0.19 core/modules/comment/src/CommentLinkBuilder.php 15 29 0.17 core/modules/comment/src/CommentManager.php 29 15 0.157 Drupal\Core\Entity File Times Changed Complexity Score core/lib/Drupal/Core/Entity/ContentEntityBase.php 115 173 0.808 core/lib/Drupal/Core/Entity/Sql/SqlContentEntityStorage.php 61 196 0.465 core/lib/Drupal/Core/Entity/Sql/SqlContentEntityStorageSchema.php 56 203 0.427 core/lib/Drupal/Core/Entity/Entity.php 131 43 0.212 core/lib/Drupal/Core/Entity/ContentEntityStorageBase.php 41 105 0.16 Conclusion

So, what to do with these results?

Well I think if you're looking to simplify your code-base and identify places that would warrant refactoring, those with a high 'churn' score would be a good place to start.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Zivtech: How to Avoid Traffic Drops After a Site Redesign

Planet Drupal - 18 January 2018 - 1:22pm

During the redesign process of a website, there are many small changes that can ultimately affect the traffic of the new site. The key is to identify any changes that might break SEO, or changes that might affect the way the site looks to search engine spiders ahead of time to avoid traffic drops. In the end, we want the site to look fresh and new while still getting the same traffic, or more, as the old design. 

At Zivtech, we look at many factors in the planning phase of a website redesign project and try to identify those that could cause drops in traffic after the new design is launched. Once these have been identified, we ensure all of these tasks have been completed before launch. Let’s take a look at some of these factors and how to avoid traffic drops on your next website redesign project.

Meta Tags

We typically build sites with Drupal, so the Metatag module handles much of the meta tag configuration and display on the site. If you aren’t using Drupal though, there could be some changes to your front-end design that could affect your meta tags and confuse search engine spiders. You’ll need to make sure that all of your pages have meta tags and that there aren’t any duplicates. 

Broken Links

Broken links are a huge problem during website redesigns. This could be a result of changes in the menu structure or in path structures for content types. Broken links mean that users and search engines can’t find the pages they’re looking for, which can really wreak havoc on your site traffic statistics.

Phase2: Estimating Drupal 8 Migration Scope

In my last post,  we discussed why marketers might want to migrate their content to Drupal 8, and the strategy and planning required to get started. The spreadsheet we shared with you in that post is the foundation of a good migration, and it usually takes a couple sprints of research, discussion, and documentation to compile.  It’s also a process that’s applicable to all migration of content, no matter the source or destination framework.
