Journey from Joomla to Drupal

Initially BluEnt started with HfS Drupal website maintenance. In middle of the year 2012, Client approached BluEnt to redesign their Drupal website. BluEnt developed and migrated the website to Joomla Content Management System

In 2015, Client again approached BluEnt to migrate HfS website design and functionality from Joomla to Drupal and asked to provide recommendation for better and secure hosting server. The main thing client wanted is the flexibility to keep the site very secure and updated. So, while the Joomla site has lots of custom code, they need to do away with that and ensure (1) all the functionality is maintained, (2) every bit of content is managed (no manual updates for everything and (3) the site back end is simpler to operate.

BluEnt provided best suggestions/ recommendations on technology, and hosting services that client found good enough. BluEnt succeeded to develop and migrate the Joomla website to Drupal Content Management System and also helped to move Racking space hosting to AWS hosting environment.

While creating and developing HFS website, BluEnt team faced few challenges like implementing Menu TABS as per the design provided and implementing the same in the responsive state. Download reports on the basis of top researches and top users, Toggle Button for Research Graphic and Text Version, HFS TV page you tube videos, etc. were also challenging.

BluEnt team researched and analyzed the features and succeeded to deliver all the required functionality timely with Quality.

BluEnt believes in exceptional, timely services for all our clients. We leave no stone unturned for them.

Uninterrupted support & back-up: On occasion Kwela has experienced server outages – twice with data loss. First, with Colligo, the consultants were able to just keep working, unaffected. Second, Kwela also discovered that they could use the local files on consultants’ laptops to replace any lost files on the server which became a huge value-add on for Alsbridge.

Superior performance: The Colligo app eliminates network latency and time outs by caching content locally for the best possible performance. Syncing is done in the background, which means that work continues uninterrupted.

Ease of use: Colligo delivers the usability expected from a desktop app – such as ‘drag and drop’ function of files to SharePoint with prompts for required metadata to ensure that everything is properly tagged and classified.
