Portal modernisation makes contributing easier
We are pleased to announce the overhaul of the Joinup collaborative platform for eGovernment professionals. Early next year, we will switch to a modern, mobile-friendly version.
The main goal of the upgrade is to make it easier for our users to add content.
This in turn, should empower users to work with colleagues to create digital government solutions, to share best practices, and to stay up to date on developments. The new and improved Joinup will allow users to set up pages that aggregate content to suit their needs.
We are also taking the opportunity to refresh the look and feel of the platform - the new, simpler interface makes it much easier to use.
We're excited to be using some of the latest open source technologies: the core of the new platform is the Drupal 8 content management system. We're adding advanced semantic capabilities, combining our own Asset Description Metadata Schema (ADMS) with a Virtuoso semantic query database.
We hope that you will appreciate the improvements to the site. As alwasy, we look forward to your comments and feedback.
