Government Department Develops First-Rate Web Site Against Strict Deadline

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The Queensland Government's Department of Public Works (the department) delivers a wide range of services to the state government and its agencies, including communication technology. In late 2008, the Government asked the department to develop an online register of war memorials in time for the following Anzac Day commemorations. This required soliciting detailed information about memorials from 75 councils, including photographs and the precise location, then validating the information, and publishing it on a new web site. Using the Microsoft collaboration tool, Office SharePoint Server 2007, the department successfully launched the online register on time, integrating Microsoft Virtual Earth to pinpoint the locations of 400 memorials. Four months later, the site had 1,000 memorials, and now attracts far more visitors than forecast.
