To power the site, the Ministry selected a CMS solution based on it stability for management of large volumes of content, the flexible and dynamic design of the navigation trees which helps to maintain consistency and homogeneity within the site, and the extensive functionalities for role management, user permissions and the design of specific workflows.
Internally, the content manager is enjoying great success, enabling editors from the different Directorates-General to perform complex content management. Another successful aspect has been the tools and widgets enabling users to design text fields, texts in WYSIWYG format, dates, drop-down lists supplied from databases, etc. The icing on the cake are the console extensions, which broaden the channel characterization, enable its access to be controlled, relate content and subjects, allow for the direct assignment of metadata and the assignment of taxonomies and metadata to content groups.
Using the OpenText system, over 10,200 cataloged pieces of content and 11,500 static files can be managed and interrelated without duplications. Externally, this freshness and modernity and the constant development of the website itself are attracting an increasing number of users. This has resulted in an exponential growth in the number of users visiting the portal daily, now amounting to 2 million visits per month.
