ANU Web Transformation

Business owner: Marketing Office »

The ANU Web Transformation Project (previously ANU Gateway) will consolidate service division web content into an efficient and effective web environment and will deliver a consistent experience for both website audiences and website managers.

What are we trying to achieve?

This Project aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of ANU Gateway websites, by:

  • ensuring the server infrastructure is optimised to improve speed and security of the websites
  • moving to a single Drupal CMS to provide efficient creation and administration of websites
  • providing web services to make it easy for business areas to manage their website in a supported Drupal CMS environment
  • creating a common architecture and navigation that provides a consistent user experience and meaningful search results
  • tracking and reporting website traffic statistics and trends to make informed decisions regarding University marketing and communications activity.

What's involved?

The Project involves establishing the web environment and consolidating and migrating selected content from current ANU websites. Content owners, audiences and other stakeholders will be consulted to determine requirements and provide feedback on deliverables.
