  12. 12. Key Architecture Drivers Business Drivers IT Drivers  Foster Innovation and “human network effect”  Linear Scalability Add as many front/back end as we need, without -> Let users build the system on demand redesign/extra costs -> Any object is typed, without strong constraints -> Stateless architecture Ready for the Cloud ->Multiple Caching strategies  Low TCO  Reduce TCO in Run mode - >As much off the shelves features as possible  Anticipate future needs Semantics, work lifestream, automatic tagging, micro blogging… Constraints  3 Months delivery for beta 1 Tight Budget Existing reuse
  14. 14. Selected solution Content management system: Drupal Forum platform: phpBB Wiki environment: MediaWiki Google Search Google Analytics
  15. 15. • Old school forums system • Great Mindshare, low features • Was the only one to offer round tripping • Legacy choice feature • Go Confluence, Mindtouch • A better choice now would be Drupal forums (or Drupal, MOSS 2007, Ensemble,…) + microblogging « à la » twitter • Excellent performance when no document security managed • Very restricitive security management (late binding only) • Incomparable features /costs !!  Still poor features comparing to modern search engines (FAST, Vivisimo, Exalead,…)
  16. 16. Lessons learnt  Web 2.0 features and impact on architecture • Free tagging is not that a nightmare (today: 80.000 tags for 20.000 users) • Social networking everything is costly  Google is your friend. Like Yahoo  • Follow Yahoo front end best practices  Front end is really 40 of perceived performance by users  Think Stateless • Linear scalability at day 0 make you sleep at night • Ready for Amazon EC2, Flexiscale, Sclar…  Build the trust with your users. • Bullet proof your Home page & search engine  Do not choose an open source solution, choose a community  KISS • Freetagging without fancy stuff • Search, REST style • Security when you REALLY need it
