Intranet for commercial property agency and consultancy
Netsight originally worked with Alder King in 2005 when we developed an intranet using version 2 of Plone, an Open Source web-based content management system (CMS), and implemented a range of custom functionality including Single Sign-On (SSO) integrated with Active Directory. As the intranet was hosted in-house on a Windows server managed by the Alder King IT team, Netsight provided remote support for the intranet application and its SSO integration over the next years.
After the re-launch of the intranet, the Alder King project team reported that company management and staff were delighted with the improved design and functionality delivered by the intranet upgrade project. Since the re-launch Netsight has continued to support the intranet application remotely, with the Alder King IT team having responsibility for maintenance of the underlying VM platform on which the new intranet runs. As usual in cases where companies wish to manage hosting arrangements directly, Netsight’s strong experience and expertise in systems administration as well as all aspects of SSO / LDAP / Active Directory integration makes it possible for us to provide as much technical assistance as needed by in-house IT teams, in ways that complement their own in-house skills.
