Web Development Process
The Web Communications team follows the IT Governance Framework (OITGF1) when choosing development projects and deciding what to work on and when. In coordination with the Application Services team all project work is structured into quarterly release cycles, wherein the associated IT group(s) complete the necessary work for the requesting unit within the given three-month timeframe. In the case of Web Communications, the requesting unit will be provided with a completed website/application, with the option to launch immediately, or delay launching in order to spend additional time creating content for their site.
The Web Communications team strives to ‘Do things the right way’ by conducting projects in a structured way, where collaboration with stakeholders is valued. It factors in use of website frameworks for efficiencies in production; coding and web standards; use of established visual design elements and principles, and best practices for information architecture.
