Captovate worked on an exciting project with the Attorney-General’s Department (AGD) in Adelaide to design and develop their new website in govCMS.
WHAT IS govCMS?
In 2014 the Australian government announced a plan to distribute their own software that any government agency could easily use. The result was govCMS: a whole-of-government content management system (CMS) based on the open source Drupal platform and delivered on Acquia Cloud. Prior to this there was no standardised platform and government agencies were using a number of website suppliers, which incurred high software maintenance and licensing costs.
Captovate has a long history of working with Drupal (over 10 years) and has been officially appointed as a govCMS preferred supplier by Acquia. AGD needed to partner with an agency to create a customised solution. Captovate was selected for their design and development expertise and ability to implement the solution into govCMS. Captovate’s team of Drupal developers created the content types and functionality required by AGD to produce a visually appealing, user friendly website. Captovate just made the process easy.
WHY IS GOVCMS BASED ON DRUPAL?
As an open-source, modular content management system, Drupal was the perfect choice for govCMS as Drupal modules can be shared easily between public sector agencies and the community. Other govCMS features and benefits include world class security and compliance, standardisation of accessibility design, and time saved on procurement and staff training.
ARE ALL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS STARTING TO USE GOVCMS?
All federal governments are using govCMS, and some state departments are coming on board. Captovate is currently working closely with government departments in SA and NT.
