Computer-Implemented Method, System, and Program Product for Dynamically
Displaying Assets for Business Offerings Based on User Context
When providing access to the assets related to business offerings, it is common
practice to create a standard layout that is displayed through a wiki or other web page.
The layout of the display is usually designed to support the needs of a specific user
context (for example, telesales), business case, or use case. For a complex global
company with offerings that are supported by diverse communities and unique needs,
this creates some difficult challenges. Each community (based on geography and role)
needs a different set of assets featured. Usually, this means either:
1. The display of the assets is sub-optimized for most communities making them
more difficult to find and reuse, or
2. Each community launches their own website making it difficult to deploy and
update new content or maintain existing content.
Current practice either creates W3 pages with hardcoded links to assets or sometimes
types of assets. The approach described here enables dynamic configuration of the
assets in whatever location they exist. In addition, the tagging of the Bill of Material
(BOM) view to the relationship allows greater flexibility of managing and displaying
assets with various offerings. An asset can be one type of BOM item for one offering
and another for a different one.
Rather than creating static web pages, the disclosed invention offers information and
