IN.gov Hits Homestretch of Migration & Redesign
As June approaches, IN.gov Program staff continues to hammer away at the final executive branch agencies' Web site CMS and redesign migrations, leaving the final 11 sites to launch between now and the 06/30/2008 deadline. Since the last IN.gov Update, sent on April 8, IN.gov has launched 18 redesigned sites, including Correction, Natural Resources and Revenue.
"We are thrilled with the progress made the past three months," said Robert Paglia, IN.gov Program Manager. "It's crunch time and our team has proven they can handle not only the largest Web conversion to date, but simultaneously maintain the level of support and security our customers have come to expect." During the past 13 months of the migration, IN.gov has continued to work with its partner agencies to develop and launch new, innovative online services and earn the coveted CyberTrust security certification sought by many public and private organizations.
Following the successful completion of all 75 executive branch agency Web site migrations, the IN.gov Program will focus its efforts on making updates to the content management system and retrofitting the early adoption agency sites not currently in the Enthink project structure.

IN.gov Program Plans Enthink Retrofit Upgrades
Upon the completion of the IN.gov CMS migration and redesign, IN.gov Program staff will begin retrofitting early adoption agencies not currently leveraging the enhanced CMS project structure, which provides for easier page creation and breadcrumb implementation. To gauge interest and begin scheduling agencies, IN.gov will send a short survey out to those agencies qualified for the retrofit. The survey, scheduled to go out early-June, will be sent to the agencies' original Agency Migration Leads (AMLs). If your AML has changed since your agency's migration, please send an updated AML with contact information to Paul VandenBussche by June 6, 2008.
