Web Strategies: Bridging a Continent


This presentation focuses on the processes and methodologies used by the Web Team in Birmingham to calm the chaotic Web environment that was inherited in 1999 through common infrastructures and a solid corporate Web vision. After almost two years of bridge building, hard selling and coming to terms with a site spread over hundreds of Web servers, the presentation will demonstrate how over two thirds of the University has now moved back into the Corporate fold whilst building a new sense of community.

More than just a focus on current technologies however, the presentation will also detail the strategic planning and costs involved and how the future of the user experience at Birmingham over the next two years will change dramatically with the inception of a major new Portal and CMS project.
