I'm about to suggest a CMF/CMS for a scalable project in my company and I really need your input here to get PW on board. The idea is simple
- Build a main website - www.acme.com
- And than build independent but related websites using the subdomains - product.acme.com / something.acme.com
- Each subdomain will have their own website and staff team.
What do I need?
- All the websites should be able to have their own backend. The reason for that is because the staff from product.acme.com will be different from acme.com. So, I don't want a staff from product.acme.com to be able to "see" the acme.com backend.
- To be able to setup independent pages design/features for each sub-domain.
It's something like google.com and their sub-domains. You have adwrods.google.com / maps.google.com / translator.google.com and so on. They keep their main brand visible - google.com - and add their different products from subdomains.
In my case, the subdomains will only host another simple website.
How would you approach this project?
Please let me know if you need more clarification.
I've already realized many projects with ProcessWire and would love to use it for a bigger project now. Maybe you can help and allay my doubts
Enterprise Single Sign-On?
We are currently using Microsoft SharePoint (2003…) as a publishing tool for our intranet web pages. This of course is no good solution concerning responsive design, flexibility and scalability. Because we are talking of a big company (about 9000 employees) it is important to protect the ProcessWire installation with an Enterprise Single Sign On (SSO). It seems like Shibboleth is a good solution to handle the communication between the Microsoft Server from the company and the Linux Apache for the intranet web page.
Has anyone already used ProcessWire in an environment like this? It would be great to use the employees IDs and hand them viewing / editing rights for single pages.
Permission Management for 9k users?
Of course most of the employees should only get viewing rights. But it would be great being able to give editing restrictions for specific pages. As I understand this is something ProcessWire does not support with its core features – even though there are modules for this particular case.
The question is: Is it responsible to build a big system based on many modules in consideration of future upgrading, scalability and co.? Looking forward to your comments on this
