- About Trifork
The project dealt with various subjects internet (www.rijksoverheid.nl), a portal, news, etc. and was part of the program ‘Vernieuwing Rijksdienst’. The project established a clear communication between the government and the central cabinet.
As of 1/1/2011 the website Rijksoverheid.nl was a fixed ‘shared service’, hosted by the ‘Dienst Publiek en Communicatie’ (DPC) of the AZ ministry. This shared service has been developed and managed by DPC.
Since the end of 2008 Trifork has been involved with the realization of www.rijksoverheid.nl and has been actively involved in thinking about a technical solution by delivering a software architect. In April 2009 our involvement grew with the addition of two developers whose goal was to develop the first version of www.rijksoverheid.nl. Later a third developer joined. We have been working on the project until April 2011.
The Trifork workers were part of internal mutlti-disciplinary scrum team under the direction of AZ. This team consisted of several AZ employees and AZ partners, including Trifork. Collaboration was therefore very important in such a team.
Hippo CMS provides an open source Web Content Management System (WCMS) solution that is mostly used for large scale CMS projects. It provides a powerful, extendable editor interface, but also provides interesting modules for mobile channels, e-commerce and content targeting.
Trifork uses Hippo mostly where the CMS has a central back-end, that is used to publish content to several channels. Existing projects have complex structures in terms of authorization roles, and also typically have an extensive number of editors (100+). Hippo is best suited to complex integration’s of numerous content sources.
