How does a school on the forefront of emerging technologies quickly develop a web portal? EM Normandie decided Pentalog was the best fit and chose to work with a team of developers in Vietnam to rapidly develop a high-quality solution.
EM Normandie needed to partner with a company that had extensive experience in designing web applications to whom they could outsource the development of the responsive online portal for Vietnam’s university system. After touring the delivery center in Hanoi during the annual Pentalog tour of offshore Vietnamese sites with Pentalog CEO Frédéric Lasnier, EM Normandie was won over by our outsourcing model, making Pentalog Vietnam the natural choice.
The project involved developing a university portal offering a range of services for teaching, administration and internal management. The goal was to create a single web portal so users would not have to use multiple platforms.
For this project, EM Normandie only wanted certain open-source solutions such as Moodle and Learning Locker. Open-source applications are web applications with public, accessible and adjustable source code. Instead of developing applications from scratch, using open-source solutions made it possible to develop the web portal much more quickly and efficiently.
So, the challenge was to bring together the various services offered through a dozen open-source applications, adapt them to suit the client’s needs, connect them together and make them interact with one another in order to prevent users from having to log in to each service individually.
EM Normandie needed a savvy, talented team of full-stack developers fluent in multiple programming languages who could understand and connect all the open-source applications.
