The University of East Anglia chose to upgrade to Liferay DXP, taking the change as an opportunity to begin with a fresh platform so they could create the perfect self-service portal for their students and staff.
“We had to go right back to basics to understand our users,” notes Alistair Quinn, Head of Web Development at the University. In order to help users find what they need efficiently, the team streamlined their pages,
cutting them by 92% from 20,000 total pages to 1,500 on the self-service portal.
The solution, branded MyUEA with its own unique color differentiators, uses SAML authentication for easy login, and gives the right users access to the right content through public and private pages.
