We provide mini Spaces for your research - free of charge.
Visit our eResearch Spaces web portal to learn more about what these collaboration workspaces can offer your and your research colleagues. You can use a Space for yourself as a web presence, with others as a collaborative environment, or simply as a secure area for document and content storage. Alternatively, you can do any mixture of the above! With an eResearch Space, you get full control over who can access or modify your content and more.
One of the main use cases for an instance of our web-based CMS is to enable collaboration between small or large groups across the Internet. Using , you and your colleagues can share documents and information securely in a location that's accessible anywhere in the world. Users can contribute content, needing only to use a web browser, and can comment and communicate directly upon where files and content are stored. This ensures that everything can remain in one place for your project, unlike email or other solutions, where content could be stored in multiple accounts or on different people's hard drives.
Having an noticeable Internet presence is extremely useful and the JCU eResearch Centre can develop a customised solution for your research or other organisation. A web-based portal is the perfect launching pad for your research project, and we can theme your portal to look and feel just how you'd like it to. Using the latest theming technologies, your portal can integrate with the rest of your organisation, even though it's a different technology underneath. Connecting to your shared organisational authentication servers is no problem either, with support for LDAP, Active Directory, CAS and more built right in. Users and administrators alike can have full control over sharing options and publication settings for content, enabling them to know exactly who can access what and when.
If your security needs require your site to be Intranet-only, we can deliver solutions as well. With the right availability of hardware and networking, your portal can be configured to live behind a corporate or other firewall, guaranteeing security for your information. We can also implement and enforce SSL-based security certificates for your site, to further ensure users and their content are protected from prying eyes. On the system itself, the workflow process can be customised in every way possible to ensure that documents and content flow as you'd like them to, and the granular security built into our systems ensures that only specific users can see specific content.
If your requirements don't quite match any of our common use cases, we understand that no two projects are the same. Our solutions can be customised in almost any way. Just like a tailor, we'll make sure your customised solution is a perfect fit.
