Social networking for the enterprise
The project target is an integrated web application for enterprises. Three portals, B2E, B2C, and B2B are being implemented in a single common framework. B2E is designated for the intranet, supporting team work within and across internal structures, like project organisations. B2C provides an internet platform for customers. B2B is a so called extranet supporting business-to-business communication and processes. The technology complies with stringent security requirements, enables deployment in the cloud and provides an overall support for mobile devices.
Besides using asynchronous communication like rss, e-mails, sms or push notification, sharing documents, schedules, online presentations, conferencing within user groups are to be integrated in the framework.
We are responsible for the overall implementation. This comprises requirements engineering, data modeling, database design, functional specification, methodology support, software development, coordination of external resources, test management, roll-out and couching. We also support content management and marketing.
The software is implemented in the Liferay open source portal framework. "Liferay was named a Leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portal Products in 2013!". On behalf of our customer we develop and integrate special-purpose portlets, extend the framework's database structure, implement extensions for internationalization, present some of the portlets on Liferay's marketplace.
We cover the whole technology stack of Liferay and will focus on the integration of arising new features, like Liferay Sync.
