DESCRIPTION: The American Society of Microbiology (ASM) maintains a large database of image, rich media, research data and other knowledge assets related to microbiology. CNP Integrations was tasked with designing and building a new data model that leveraged Joomla CMS and Mighty Extensions to build a system that could be managed by non programmers and in-house resources. In addition the design model had to allow for system scalability over time. Some of the new features required interaction with social technologies and complex search algorithms with required several in-depth custom programming challenges. CNP met these challenges along with writing complex data import scripts which migrated all of the data from the legacy database into the new system. After some administrative training to the ASM team leader, the project was then handed off for further development by the ASM.
TECHNOLOGY:Joomla CMS and the suite of Mighty Extensions. In addition to many custom template configurations, data import scripts.
