Our client was looking for a solution that would allow them to operate and manage a technology news portal. For this purpose they teamed up with Icreon. Since organizing and publishing content to the website formed a major chunk of the functionality, we suggested customizing the Drupal open source CMS package in developing the website. The website allows visitors to search for and browse through a wide variety of information that has been organized into various sections such news, reviews, guides, downloads etc. vBulletin – a third-party discussion forum software has been integrated with the solution With the successful delivery of the website – techarena.in – we have provided our client with a dynamic website that they can update and manage themselves.

Outsourcing web development efforts can yield drastically different results depending on who you partner with. In the end, success depends on so many factors far beyond code development itself - strong project management skills, the ability to balance a strategic vision and end user needs with technical realities, discipline in execution, steady productivity, honesty, and a positive attitude in dealing with unexpected challenges and changes to name a few. I've found that those who can consistently deliver on these key attributes are rare.
