Case Study: Drupal in the Enterprise

Time Slot: 
Friday 11:15 - Friday 12:30
370 (Wosk Centre)

In an approachable fashion (read: OK for business types), Michael will discuss his team's experiences choosing and implementing Drupal for a Canadian University.

Dissecting the new Fine Arts Faculty website at the University of Lethbridge, Michael will showcase the design and implementation decisions made along the way to serve an organization with 8,000 students and 1,200 staff, and a global audience.

Accompanying this discussion will be a review of the modules chosen, and what we learned along the way. Themes such as scalability, technical environments, learning curves and end user training will be touched on.

The essence of this talk is what we learned as an organization implementing a CMS, how stakeholder buy-in was crucial, and what we plan to do different next time.
