The Mission

Involved in a number of projects ranging from redeveloping the corporate website, the Intranet and managing company aquisition websites to developing and implementing projects related to the inception of an enterprise CMS application, Teamsite.

Tasks included design, build and maintaining the client facing area of markit.com supporting the day to day management of the website using Magnolia and Teamsite for CMS web template development, implementation and support in a J2EE environment, training and advice, working closely with the marketing team and other businesses areas to help deliver high profile websites for over 22 different financial product areas (See links below).

Sharing technological know-how and expertise to help deliver web solutions which will enhance the company’s online portfolio, we were heavily involved in the full scale upgrade project to change the initial client facing website running in Magnolia over to Teamsite.

In December 2008, a full CMS platform review was completed and this later kick-started a new project to design and build an enterprise website which was launched in April 2009 using Interwoven TeamSite.

In parallel to this, we used Magnolia CMS to design, develop and deliver web pages and initial work flow process for real-time financial credit auctions for defaulted firms such as Quebcor and Tembec. This process has since successfully completed credit auctions for Fannie Mai and Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers and many more via creditfixings.com.

The Japanese version of the website markit.co.jp launched in February 2008 to bring it in line with markit.com when it was first launched in September 2007. This involved implementing the new design, domain name re-direction for the new site, closing down the old website, managing communications in Singapore and issuing a technical solution for content editors which, in turn allows the users to manage their own pages. We also managed the content updates for this website which is essentially written in Japanese and in turn provided a 3 hour training session to the users and publishers for the site in Tokyo.
