The latest version of SDL Tridion (2013 SP1) is built to work with the latest version of SDL SmartTarget 2014. 2014 does away with the Business Manager interface as it’s now integrated with the CME, so whilst it’s hard to believe anyone wouldn’t wish to upgrade, if there’s some reason you simply cannot and still need to use ST 2011 with Tridion 2013 SP1, here’s how.
The SDL Context Engine Cartridge is a Content Delivery cartridge that integrates with the Ambient Data framework of SDL Tridion. The Context Engine essentially provides a huge amount of information about the device, browser and operating system of your website visitor. This seemed like a perfect cartridge to integrate with SDL SmartTarget, so after immediately doing so, I thought I’d share my configuration.
