The purpose of this manual is to provide initial documentation on the Beta Release in support of the
ATG Beta Program. The intended users are the Solution Engineering Team and the Beta Site
Coordinators. It can be used as a reference document for anyone that wishes to have an understanding
of the Beta Release and demonstration abilities.

We structured this document to provide an overall demonstration flow from the customer asking a
question to receiving an answer they are satisfied with. A detailed feature list was prepared prior and
the features are mapped to each section of the flow

Each feature is coded Green (can demo); Yellow (demo and talk to) and Red (talk to but don’t demo).
A detailed story script then follows to map to the data available in the knowledgebase.

         Self Service

         Self Service will be used to show the Anonymous and Secured User experience. In this
         scenario, we will focus on the Secured User experience to show the breadth of the UI. Many
         more additions to the UI will come when “ticketing” is finished, such as a fully functional My-
         Support landing page that includes open incidents, an escalation path to capture interaction and
         move it into assisted service ticket generation, etc. The general idea here is that you can use
         your creativity to “talk” through all the benefits of wrapping ATG Scenario Engine around this
         UI with content targeting slots, cross-sells, etc. and how they will aid the self service user
         experience. The Numbers link back to the Feature List that provides a full description. Self
         Service is best viewed using Internet Explorer.

         Self Service Introduction

         The scenario is a customer “Barry Bonds” who has purchased a Treo 650 phone (smartphone)
         and now has an issue on how to play music on it. The customer navigates to the site, logs in
         and conducts a search to find a resolution. As the presenter, you need to introduce the
         Anonymous landing page and then move to the Secured Log in.

            Go to the Self Service UI and introduce the landing page and navigation

         Escalating to Customer Support
         At this point, Barry could perform other searches to better define what he is looking for but he
         decides to escalate his question to get an answer. Remember that ticketing is not available yet
         so this will be more of a discussion in setting the stage for receiving the escalation in the call
              Barry navigates to My Support link in the Profile Menu Bar
              Talk to the Search History and Answers Viewed and Saved Searches
              Show the link to Contact Support – discuss selecting the link that will create a ticket for Barry and allow
               him to document his issue and forward to live Customer Support

     The ticket might hold the following information:
     Problem: I cant play music on my phone, Device: “TREO 650” “SANDISK SD”, Description: I loaded up my SD
     card with songs but when I go to play them on my phone. They don’t show up to play-I know they are MP3 files so
     am I loading them into the wrong place?

         Knowledge (ATG Workspace)

         Now you need to transition to the Knowledge Landing Page to begin the call center knowledge
         search, author and publish scenario. Knowledge is best viewed using Firefox. When you first
         log in, you would expect to land on the Research Tab but the screen body remains blank, work
         around is to select the Research Tab.

          Logging in as a Secured User

         A Tier One Agent will log into the Knowledge Site and the presenter will need to introduce the
         landing page
              Log in as one of the secured users, for example Agent1, password: agent1
              Introduce the Tabs across the top. Each Tab represents a workspace where the content of panel and panes
               are specific to the actions required for that area and the privileges of that user
                    o Research Tab allows the known user to Search or Browse for information available in the
                        knowledge base. Search allows user to state a question or a problem; you add statements to the
                        search, and advanced search. Browse allows user to browse and constrain information by Topic
                    o Contribute Tab allows users to capture, review and approve structured content authoring. The
                        Research Panel (which needs to be expanded by selecting the top icon) is framed for secondary
                        searches while authoring. Scenario Engine workflows support specific review and approval
                    o Respond Tab allows the agents to communicate status of resolutions back to the customers
                    o Task Tab shows the tasks that have been assigned to the agents, either as a group or individual
                        assignments that the agent is to act on. Scenario Engine will support specific task workflows and
              Panels can be expanded and collapsed to introduce new panels or closed to increase working real estate.
              Panes can be closed by selecting the hash icon on the right upper hand side. Selecting the up arrow icon
               removes the pane from the view but is still selectable in the top of the panel.

         Conducting a Search

This is done by the Tier one agent responding to the customer who escalated a question from Self
Service. This request would be driven through a ticketing system, either 3rd party or ATG (available at
GA). The creation of the ticket will initiate a workflow to generate a task within the knowledge
application for the Tier One Agent to respond to. The ticket will allow the tracking of the escalation,
resolution and close out. When the Tier One Agent logs in to the system, they would b e alerted of the
tasks that have been assigned to them.

As ticketing is not available at this time, the Tier One agent, in this scenario, will start the process by
conducting the search, agreeing that additional content needs to be added to the knowledgebase and
sets out to create the first draft for review.

        The agent conducts the same search that was conducted by the customer and sees the content gap.

        “If you have a USB SD card reader, you can transfer the MP3 files directly to your expansion card without using
        RealOne Player or Send To Handheld droplet. Insert the SD card and card reader into the USB port on your desktop
        computer. Drag and drop MP3 music files to any of these subdirectories on the expansion card:


        If none of these subdirectories appear on your expansion card, create an Audio subdirectory in the root, and copy
        MP3 music files there.

        Don't have a USB SD card reader? Use these methods:
        Windows: Use the RealOne Player for Windows to move MP3 music files to your Treo 650 smarpthone. Insert an
        SD expansion card into your Treo 650 smartphone.
        On your smartphone, launch RealPlayer for Palm OS, and connect your smartphone to its HotSync cable or cradle.
        RealPlayer for Palm OS must be actively running for the RealOne Player for Windows to "see" your smartphone.

        On your desktop computer, launch RealOne Player for Windows.
        At the bottom of RealOne Player, click the tab for My Library.
        Double-click Audio, and then double-click All Audio.
        Your stored audio files will be displayed. Click on a single file to highlight it.
        At the bottom of RealOne Player, click on Copy To, and select Palm Handheld.
        At the bottom of the screen, select Add Clips.
        Select clips to transfer. You can select multiple clips by holding CTRL and clicking on each item.
        At the bottom of the window, select Add Clips. These clips will be added to the Ready To Transfer list. You can
        add more clips in other folders shown on the right of the window. Each time, click Add Clips to put the clips in the
        Ready To Transfer list. When finished, click Close.
        At the bottom of the screen, select Transfer.
        RealOne Player will begin transferring the clips shown to the SD expansion card in your Treo 650 smartphone.

                      If you open a structured solution from the Research Tab in full view, that specific
                       solution will appear in the Research Tab. Abandon session does not work so it is
                       difficult to start in creating a fresh solution.

                       changes). This means if you select “Save” on a solution more than twice in its
                       lifetime (during authoring and after publishing), the solution information will
                       disappear and the title will remain.

         Solution indexing will run automatically every time you modify or promote a new solution to
         “Submit for Review”. If you need index documents, you will need to kick off a document

         Please refer to http://wiki/snipsnap/space/Products/Service/Wisdom-2006.1-QAInstall-

         That contains a quick solution for indexing solutions and documents if the environment has
         been set up and configured.

         This link is located in the http://wiki/snipsnap/space/Products/Service/Wisdom-2006.1-QA-
         Install-Notes Project Homepage.

         To Monitor Index
         Once you create a solution and submit for review, an automated indexing will be kicked off.
         This process takes about 10 minutes. To check that these jobs are running, go to

                   Login: admin/admin
                   Got to: Admin TAB
                   Select Jobs/History

                   One of these job scripts should be running

                         agentIncrementBPI = when finished will show in agent interface
                         selfserviceIncrementalBPI = when finished will show in self Service interface

         To kick off a full index go to : DO NOT RUN ANY INDEXES THROUGH THE MC


                   Self Service

                   BEFORE AND AFTER KICKING OFF AN INDEX go to here to see its progress:

         Creating New Users

             This function is done through the ACC

                  Important to note that security and access is a little buggy
                  Creating new user does not work so it is best to create a duplicate of a user that does
                   work that has full administrative access like “service”
                  Steps
                      o Launch ACC from your desk top if the RMI port is open
                      o Need to point to specific server you are using (knowledge or self service)
                      o If you can not establish a remote connection to the ACC from your desktop, you
                          can rdc in to the box and start the ACC from http://localhost:28830 or
                      o Log in and password (admin/admin)
                               Go to People and Organizations | Users
                               Select “List”
                              If Knowledge (needs a work around)
                                    Right click on “service” and select duplicate
                                    Rename “Log in”, “Password”, “First Name”, “Last Name”
                              If Service
                                    Need to create a new user (no users will be available probably)
                                    Use the “New User” button to open the record
                                    Enter “Log in”, “Password”, “First Name”, “Last Name”
                                    Can create a new user and don’t need access roles

Other Selling Points to Talk To (needs additional work)

         Unified Java Architecture
         The Dynamo Application Framework defines a J2EE programming model that is
         comprehensive and consistent. It is architected around a seamless combination of a unified data
         object model (the Data Anywhere Architecture), a unified component model (Nucleus), and a
         unified messaging model (DynamicBeans over JMS). This unified programming model
         addresses all elements of enterprise applications, from JSP page authoring to content
         management, from data modeling to enterprise application integration. The programming
         model also maintains a consistent set of concepts across all site developers, including page
         authors, Java developers, content authors, site operators and business managers. These concepts
         are embodied in the cross-functional development tools that are part of the DAF.

         Layered on top of the base J2EE components, the DAF programming model provides a faster
         means to producing applications that are more flexible and maintainable. In addition, the DAF
         provides a wide array of services that application developers can use in their own applications.
         These services address many of the common problems encountered by enterprise applications,
         solving those problems with feature-rich implementations built for scalability. These services
         save developers from the time and frustration of "reinventing the wheel" with every new
         application. And because the DAF is based on J2EE, these services can be used on containers
         from multiple J2EE vendors.

         The Dynamo Application Framework offers all J2EE programmers a way to build portable,
         flexible and maintainable applications quickly. The Dynamo Application Framework also
         supports those applications with a scalable runtime infrastructure, providing benefits that will
         work for the entire range of applications from the smallest intranet site to the largest
         ecommerce powerhouse.

         Data Anywhere Architecture
         Data Anywhere Architecture™ is a data access layer that defines a generic representation of a
         data store and provides a unified perspective for data access. Data Anywhere Architecture is a
         great example of reducing the number of components needed to perform common and
         potentially complex tasks. High-performance, secure, transactional, two-way data access is
         fundamentally important for all enterprise Web applications: Data Anywhere is the model of
         simplicity for overcoming these otherwise time-consuming, repetitive and high-risk
         development tasks.

         Apart from obviating the need for developers to create JDBC statements, Data Anywhere offers
         even greater abstraction by requiring designs for the data object model and associated
         mappings only. Database schemas for all leading RDBMS products (e.g., Microsoft SQL
         Server, DB/2, Oracle, etc.) are then automatically generated to support this object model. Not a
         single line of code needs to be written for data access; and changes to the data model require
         only modification to the mappings and database tables.

         Scenario Workflow Engine

         The ATG Adaptive Scenario Engine is the basis of all ATG solutions. It is a high performance
         platform for personalization and for simplifying data access and process automation, while
         powering large scale, frequently changing online services. The Scenario Engine maintains
         customer profiles and activity information, enables customer segmentations and personal
         response, and manages scenarios adapted to individual customers or market segments. The
         Scenario Engine’s strongest benefit is its ability to help companies execute targeted campaigns
         for merchandising or proactive service. Developers can also benefit from our Eclipse-based
         development tools and standards-based Web services. All of a company’s rich content
         segmentation data, customer scenarios and more may be created, version-managed, approved
         and deployed.

         Web Services Support for CRM Integration
         Web services enable the linking of applications so the functions of one application can be
         invoked by another, and the results returned to the calling application so that processing can
         continue. This is not a technology issue that has gone unsolved before (such as CICS, DCE,
         Tuxedo, CORBA, D-COM, EJB), but what makes Web services unique is that it shares much
         of the uncomplicated technology that allows a web browser to communicate with a web server.
         Web services use the HTTP internet protocol, XML-based messages and URL’s as the building
         blocks to make application integration as simple as possible (at least when comparing it to
         other application integration technologies, both past and present).

         The inherent use of established internet technology makes Web services appealing, for
         developers and corporate IT personnel because it is an extension of familiar technology.
         Corporate skills already exist in setting up web servers, configuring fire walls, managing user
         access, etc., and are relevant and required for setting up a Web services infrastructure.

         Web services is an architecture for integration. The lowered cost of integration, helped by the
         standardization and ubiquitous support for the architecture by vendors, is expected to quickly
         drive the adoption of the architecture by our existing customers as well as prospective

         Enterprise application vendors have responded by introducing new products that move them
         more in the direction of the "platform layer." Vendors such as Peoplesoft, Siebel, SAP, now
         have products based on Web services and "composite applications", in order to cater to the
         customer base that increasingly demand a break from monolithic applications. This creates a
         peer to peer relationship to enable information exchange between ATG products and other
