For those you may have missed our newsletter last week I’d like to take this opportunity to give you a quick lowdown of what we’ve been up to. The summer months have been far from quiet and I’m pretty excited to share in this month’s edition lots of news on projects, products & upcoming events.
Hippo & Orange11
The countdown has begun for the launch of The University of Amsterdam online platform. Built by Orange11 with the use of Hippo CMS the website developed with multi-platform functionality in mind is a masterpiece of technology all woven together. We’ll keep you posted about the tips & tricks we implemented.
If you can’t wait until then and want more information, contact Jan-Willem van Roekel.
Mobile Apps; just part of the service!
We mentioned in our last newsletter the launch of Learn to write with Tracy. Well since then we’ve been working on apps for many customers including for example The New Motion, a company dedicated to the use of Electric Vehicles. Orange11 has developed an iPhone app that allows users to view or search load locations (in list or map form) and even check real-time availability of these.
Another example is the app for GeriMedica;Ysis Mobiel, a mobile addition to their existing Electronic Health Record database used largely in Geriatric care (also an Orange11 project). The mobile app supports specific work processes allows registered users to document (in line with the strict regulations) all patient related interaction through a simple 3-step logging process. A registration overview screen also shows the latest activities registered, which prevents co-workers from accidentally registering the same activity twice.

Orange11 & MongoDB
We’ve got tons of exciting things going on with MongoDB as trusted implementation partner so here are a few highlights:
Brown bag sessions
Since the launch of our brown bag sessions we’re excited that so many companies are interested to find out more this innovative open source document database. What we offer is a 60 minute slot with an Orange11 & MongoDB expert, who can educate & demonstrate MongoDB best practices & cover how it can be used in practice. It’s our sneak preview to you of the host of opportunities there are with MongoDB.
Tech meeting / User Group Meeting
As a partner we’re also proud to host the next user group session on Thursday 6th September, whereby Chief Technical Director, Alvin Richards will be here to cover all the product ins & outs and share some use cases.
Don’t miss out & join us, as always it’s free & pizza and cold beer on the house!
Coffee Cookies, Conversation & Customers
Last week we invited some of our customers to a brainstorm session around the new Cookie Law in the Netherlands. Together with Eric Verhelst, a lawyer specialized in the IT industry, Intellectual Property, Internet and Privacy we provided our customers with legal insight and discussed what their concerns & ideas were around solutions. If you have any questions around the new cookie law and are looking for advice, answers & solutions, contact Peter Meijer.
ElasticSearch has just got bigger
Congratulations to our former CEO, Steven Schuurman who announced his new venture:ElasticSearch, the company. The company’s product “elasticsearch”, is an innovative and advanced open source distributed search engine. The combination of Steven joining forces with elasticsearch founder & originator Shay Banon and his background as co-founder of SpringSource, the company behind the popular Spring Framework, (also close to our heart at Orange11) it’s bound to be a great success. The company offers users and potential users of elasticsearch a definitive source for support, education and guidance with respect to developing, deploying and running elasticsearch in production environments. As Search remains a key focus area for Orange11, with our experience in both Solr and elasticsearch, our customers are guaranteed the best search solution available. For more info contact Bram Smeets.
