Southern Rivers CMA Intranet
Southern Rivers Catchment Management Authority (SRCMA) is a NSW Government agency responsible for the protection and restoration of water catchments in the southern part of NSW.
We worked closely with SRCMA to develop a scalable, user-customisable intranet in two parts; My Page, a highly flexible “dashboard”-style web page designed to serve as users’ browser home page; and The Brain, a heavily customised version of the popular MediaWiki software.
The system provided a wide array of drag-and-drop modules that could be added, removed and rearranged on demand to meet each user’s varied needs.
With help from their IT service team, we were able to develop a custom engine for single sign-on so users didn’t have to type their credentials in at all (but could still see their own, customised home page on any computer they logged into).
Modules such as weather use the user’s current location to provide the relevant information directly from the Bureau of Meteorology.
Other modules pull information from other intranet systems, the SRCMA website and the wiki.
