A sister concern of a leading academic publication house in the USA wanted to convert the base of their existing website from ColdFusion to PHP using the Drupal content management system. They also needed a solid backend to manage records of more than 150,000 students and approached WS with the requirements.
The challenges that the WS team faced during the project were:
- Integrating the 3rd party payment processing software ChargeLogic and eBook reader Vital Source with the website.
- Ensuring the website can handle large amounts of traffic without slowing down.
