Dr Lazenby mentioned that the improvements to the website, which started operating towards the end of November 2014, “compl[y] with W3C standards and international security standards. It is hosted remotely and runs from two geo-locations that replicate data real-time to the most efficient endpoint, ensuring the highest performance and the most relevant content. It is mobile friendly and accessible to the visually disabled. It has new functionalities and is integrated with the university’s enterprise systems. The look and feel, effective search functionality and navigation of the new website are additional improvements compared to the legacy website. Through the migration process all faculties and most support departments updated their content and mini-sites were created for academic departments that did not have a web presence before”.
