When the Mayor of London made london.gov.uk a central part of his digital strategy, GLA undertook extensive research to identify the core users of the website and their needs from it. The project, which spanned 18 months, was a collaborative effort between 5 different organisations, including CTI Digital, who built the website.
Faced with the challenge of connecting to a population of 8.63 million residents, across a diverse range of opinions, backgrounds and needs, GLA concluded that the site should be modern, open and engaging, and ought to listen to people’s concerns. We implemented a User-Centred Service Design, by streamlining and grouping content intelligently. We used pre-existing modules, allowing us to integrate systems that help with the site’s data migration, webcasts, taxonomy, assembly papers, planning decisions, jobs feed, and search sections. The site was also given a scalable infrastructure, that will provide the support and speed necessary during peak demand periods, such as New Year’s Eve or times of community crisis.
“A vast improvement on its predecessor and the next Mayor and Assembly will have a robust, scalable platform from which to shout about their work.”
"The new site couldn’t have happened without gathering together with great partners, and taking advantage of the many cloud and agile capabilities that Drupal has to offer. We've achieved big cultural change not only on our site, but also in our organisation."
- David Munn, Head of Information Technology at Greater London Authority
