Public Website Hosting and Maintenance
A program’s public website is its face to the world. It serves as a critical information link to members, potential members and the public at large. While site design is an important consideration, so, too, is a site that is easy to maintain and can grow and evolve as easily as a program does.
IEEE-ISTO promotes open source content management systems (CMS), as the infrastructure of choice for its program’s public websites which offer stable, scalable and user-friendly foundations for whatever type of public presence a program wishes to craft.
In today’s world, the success of a program depends largely upon the ability of its members to collaborate with one another easily and effectively which requires effective tools by which to engage members and communicate with them. IEEE-ISTO offers its programs an array of systems and tools to enable geographically diverse membership organizations to connect, communicate, and collaborate. These systems include, or interface with, membership systems that keep tabs on an organization’s members, and which manage their level of access into the sites. Through its own help desk support channel, server hosting, systems administration and so forth, IEEE-ISTO supports these tools:
- Secure Members Only Areas
- Custom Email list serves
- File repositories
- Group/shared calendars
- Wiki work areas
IEEE-ISTO recommends the appropriate systems and tools that would best address specific IT requirements, considering the organization’s goals, resources, and budget. Installations for new programs can take just a few weeks.
