The site and all components were to be reusable, so site templates, page layouts, content types and web parts were used extensively. This allows WorleyParsons employees with sufficient permissions to manage and maintain the website without requiring any assistance from developers.
Smooth Deployment via SSWpackage.exe
Migration between development, staging and production servers was simplified by using SharePoint packaging functionality and using the suite of STSADM commands to deploy the components. SSW developed a tool to simplify the addition of all components to the package, as this process can be time consuming and error prone.
WorleyParsons chose SSW to develop their new public website and it is now powered by SharePoint 2007.
