Platform Committee Update

  1. Created a system inventory and identify dependencies.
  2. Generated a list of platform requirements.  These would be in addition to what is found by the Requirements Committee.
  3. Based on discussions, we identified three strategies for building a new presence.
      • An Aggregator Home Page with no central CMS, content authoring and managing would be done through multiple systems
      • Central CMS for the content of www.middlebury.edu, would include a personal homepage for authenticated users.
      • A combination of the two.
      1. Investigated platform possibilities, with advantages and disadvantages.

      We are currently narrowing down the possibilities based on our requirements, and looking for examples of use in other higher-ed institutions.  We are leaning towards a combination cms/portal platform, and will be deciding whether these two functions should exist on the same or different platforms.
