Creating applications and dashboards using Drupal

Attendance

San Francisco City and County have a growing set of internal solutions that present Drupal dashboards. This session will show how we deploy dashboards for business users, for deployment in both intranet and web facing systems. The types of dashboards we will be looking at include:

  • IT procurement dashboard
  • Tax Credit Request Management dashboard
  • Entertainment Permits dashboard
  • Discrimation Reporting dashbord
  • etc

This session will focus on the management of dashboards. Specifically how we deploy multiple dashboards for users with varying permissions. The data capture and workflow are not part of this demonstration. The use case is very much about using Drupal inside the organisation for delivering subsites for specific business needs.

DC.Gov – Catching Up/Moving Ahead

Attendance

Get the latest scoop on DC.Gov, the District’s official web portal.

In 2009, the Office of the Chief Technology Officer embarked on an ambitious project to modernize DC.Gov. Its goals included moving off an antiquated CMS, migrating over 100 sites to a new information architecture that is more citizen centric, implementing a new design, bridging the digital divide through the deployment of a mobile platform, facilitating the use of Web 2.0 features, and making the creation and publication of content easier and more efficient by District agencies. In 2011, we adopted Drupal 7, moving away from a commercial CMS that was the original solution.
