This presentation will discuss the Magnolia implementation for Manatee County Government.

Manatee County Government implemented both an intranet and Internet site using Magnolia EE with a small internal IT Team and a core group of 38 content editors. Manatee County leveraged the flexibility of the Magnolia STK to get an intranet site up and running quickly (4 Months). The intranet site provided content for the County's 1600 employees and served as a learning tool for developers, administrators and content editors while the Internet Site was under development.

Manatee County's new website now contains over 1,500 pages edited by 150 individuals from 17 County Departments. The site has multiple integration points with existing County information. Touch points include ESRI Mapping data, Oracle Enterprise data and Lotus Domino databases.

The discussion will focus on the Integration opportunities of County information into the STK.
