Migration of Website and Database to new CMS Website

and Hosting Environment www.eans.org

THE CHALLENGE

EANS had to move their website and membership database quickly as their web developers had informed them that they were no longer going to develop and host the site or database. The layout and design were fine but there was much more that EANS wanted to do to enhance the site for their members.

Because of our broad range of services, technical expertise and history of working with other not for profit membership organisations, EANS commissioned SomCom to undertake the work to combine the website and database whilst enhancing both within a scalable, future proof platform.

OUR APPROACH

By working closely with EANS and the website and database developers, we were able to ensure that all services were maintained and that the data and code was transferred over.

We were then able to copy the site over into our rapid prototyping development framework (Django) and apply a new CMS, which allowed for the new website enhancements to be made.

THE RESULT

  • No loss of service
  • Enhanced design
  • Added new features/functions
  • Integrated membership database with website
  • Implemented new CMS
  • 100% site and database content retention
  • Provided new hosting platform plus a future proof solution

Technologies Used | Django, Python, MySQL
