Description: The mypugetsound.net portal is a feature rich community portal designed to streamline communications between over 300 partners and thousands of individuals and organizations throughout the Puget Sound region in Washington State. This unique communication system offers numerous collections of content for distinct audiences within this niche community of organizations, counties, neighborhoods and environmental enthusiasts. The tools within the system were modeled after many of the popular social media sites such as Facebook, Linkedin or youtube and integrate with many of these external sites as well for a best of bread solution. Users are segmented by profiles and can freely exchange information with others in the community. Content repositories, activity forums and groups are managed and moderated yet the system is designed to encourage and inspire participation.

DESCRIPTION: The American Society of Microbiology (ASM) maintains a large database of image, rich media, research data and other knowledge assets related to microbiology. CNP Integrations was tasked with designing and building a new data model that leveraged Joomla CMS and Mighty Extensions to build a system that could be managed by non programmers and in-house resources. In addition the design model had to allow for system scalability over time. Some of the new features required interaction with social technologies and complex search algorithms with required several in-depth custom programming challenges. CNP met these challenges along with writing complex data import scripts which migrated all of the data from the legacy database into the new system. After some administrative training to the ASM team leader, the project was then handed off for further development by the ASM.
