Content Management System:

Our Content Management System (CMS) is built upon open source technology and is used by the likes of Nissan, the BBC and UBM. We are big advocates of open source technology, and strive to provide our offerings with the most suitable software available to us. We evaluated many open source frameworks and concluded that Symfony2 (http://symfony.com/symfony-at-a-glance) offered everything our clients’ need in a component based framework. It has a vibrant and active community that continues to contribute to the on-going evolution of the framework. We’ve built our own CMS atop of Symfony2 – this provides us with a solid, loosely coupled, modular base for our projects. The ‘generic’ CMS typically provides at least 80% of the functionality required for our partners, allowing us to customise the remaining functionality to meet client-specific needs. This allows us to concentrate on the core bespoke requirements of the project, using the existing functionality of the framework for common requirements such as user access. The framework is similar to the following widely used PHP frameworks: • Zend Framework - http://framework.zend.com/ • Symfony - http://www.symfony-project.org/ • Agavi - http://www.agavi.org/ It benefits from being developed from the ground up to support the enhancements of the PHP language from version 5.3 upwards, and is built around many well established and proven design patterns. As our CMS is based upon open source technology it avoids issues around ‘old source code’ and helps to ensure that the technology underlying your website remains up to date for years to come. It also means that in the future, third-party developers (other than Browser) could work on the MADE website, if required. Symfony2 has also had a full security audit (http://symfony.com/blog/symfony2-security-audit) performed by SektionEins (http://www.sektioneins.de/en/) to identify any possible security concerns with the framework. The Symfony2 framework has full unit test coverage, and all our additional modules are fully unit tested with excellent documentation allowing independent developers to easily use and extend its functionality.
