We are proud to announce that we recently got selected by Cabinet Secretariat office to maintain the portal for Government Performance Management Peer Assisted Learning, better known as GO-PEM-PAL. Their current website can be checked at http://gopempal.org/. This project is funded by United Nations Development Programe, UNDP and sparxsys proven competency and years of experience was the reason that this project was given to us.
I am quite happy to share this news, working with Goverment organization has been a good experience so far. This is quite a challenging task for us, as this site would be visited by thousands of people everyday. The site was already built by their internal team and we have to introduce new features, improve the site performance and change the design.
Since it is a government project with lot of dependecies on the website, so we are also working carefully on this project. We are paying lot of attention on the testing too. We internally use JIRA for tracking all the tasks and maintenance requests, that really helps us and client too when it comes to the overally visibility on the progress.
- The site is currently in Drupal 7 but there are lot of modules which are not used, we need to disable them.
- Lot of data need to be uploaded on the website
- We need to make the site responsive in future
- Site performance need to be improved
- Site also need to be moved to a better server
I am quite sure that this project would be one of the most successful projects delivered by sparxsys and we look forward to more such projects from Indian Government
