Australia Freelance Market: Traditional content management systems are no longer good enough
So far, Australia Freelance Market was based on the Joomla "CMS". Standard content management systems like Joomla are not coping anymore with our sophisticated technical demands, as we have now six individual marketplaces (each with their own languages, contractors, categories and links).
Andreas Ehrlich from our IT department has therefore started the initiative to create our own "CMS" which is specifically focusing on the needs of Australia Freelance Market. Our new IT-system is both based on our own developments, as well as on the so-called "Zend"-framework.
Now that our migration to the new technology has been successfully completed, we can develop ourAustralia Freelance Market in a more flexible way. We also avoid system instabilities and malfunctions that result from the complexity of a traditional CMS implementation.
Another advantage is the better server utilisation. This reduces the time it takes to display complex search results on the browser to less than one second. Although most users will hardly feel this increase in speed, we can now serve more customers simultaneously, and we can improve our search engine rating further. Due to the lower server load, we also save electricity and reduce pollution.
