NEW DOCUMENT MANAGING WITHIN MEDARBETARPORTALEN
There is a continuing upgrade of technology at Medarbetarportalen right now (vt-2015). The most visible result of this is the new interface within group-areas and the meeting-areas preview function. Aside from these there are also stuff going on behind the scenes which is not visible.
There are several reason for the switch. The current solution is built upon a seperate document server, Alfresco. The only system using this server today is Medarbetarportalen and it should take the whole administrative overhead for it in the future. This is not defendable since Medarbetarportalen only uses a fraction of the servers functionality.
Liferay is the platform of which Medarbetarportalen is built upon. Liferay contains a competent document handling functionality which has not been used by Medarbetarportalen. When the work with Medarbeterportalen started an assessment was made that this functionality was not enough. A new assessment was made 2013. By this time there were a few new versions of Liferay and the document functionality was determined to now be up to par and more competent than the older Alfresco-based solution.
So all in all the switch will provide less administrative overhead and more functionality. The operation stability of the system is also estimated to improve.
