The Project is to design a single login portal for intranet.

The main requirements are

1. to send internal memos to user's email

2. good and appealing eye candy for the UI

3. ability to request IT support service

4. request item purchase.

5. IM or Chat on LAN.

These things should be at different user levels, for example, manager should be able to see the purchase request submitted by the user and should have rights to deny or approve the request.

 

i have given a detailed description, in order for me to ask the following:

1. Could somebody point me in a direction of what technology or solution should i use.

2. Would CMS do the job.

3. which CMS would be better.

4. The technical requirement is that solution should support IIS server.

5. The hosting would be done on the intranet, but solution should also be scalable to internet (login would still be available for employees only)

Any help is appreciated

 

Hello and Welcome to Xisto... WD #2.

 

1.Could somebody point me in a direction of what technology or solution should i use.

 

I think you could make your own if you know PHP, HTML and MySQL.

 

2. Would CMS do the job.

3. which CMS would be better.

 

Yes, CMS is the name for what you are going to be creating. I think Drupal or Joomla will do the job perfectly. You might need some free or premium modifications from the Extensions area, but once you install them -- it will be perfect.

 

I hope that answers those questions...

If you start from scratch, you can customize it all you want and you can also try selling it for money if you want. You would be able to control everything and integrate everything perfectly with some tweaks. But if you use solutions/CMS like Joomla and Drupal, you won't be able to control everything -- only those options which the plugin gives you. Basic point: Making it yourself is harder but the result is great. Using a CMS is easier but less options.
