The Belgian Police was looking for a solution to migrate their outdated website infrastructure to a more modern alternative. In consultation with Calibrate, they chose to build the websites in the most recent version of Drupal.
At the outset of the project, we faced several major technical challenges. First, the existing look-and-feel must not be changed. This is because it has been defined by the internal committee according to an approved specification.
In addition, we will be transferring over 180 websites from both the local and federal police. Our developers brought all these websites together under one common portal site, while the Belgian Police web team can still manage each website separately.
So the challenge is to make the migration as smooth as possible, taking into account that each website can also have one or more languages and needs to be accessible under 3 domain names. As an extension to the existing functionality, we also provide a mechanism to centrally manage content and synchronize it between all websites.
