The IMG intranet site was developed to help create and manage media. Kentico CMS provided an excellent security layer to easily control access to the intranet functionality. The intranet application consists of 3 modules and also provides media information to external applications via custom web services created with Kentico CMS. The site is hosted in Microsoft’s Azure Cloud and SQL Azure platform.
For the Florida’s Great Northwest website, an abundance of content required the designers at Bit-Wizards to carefully plan out the navigation. One of the areas to receive special attention is the interactive map room
. Economic developers and their partners can view a regional map of Northwest Florida that displays counties and MSAs with interactive overlays for infrastructure and key assets. Moreover, the new report generator
feature allows visitors to customize data reports and gather the results into a single PDF file. The site is hosted in Microsoft’s Azure Cloud and SQL Azure platform.
