Content management system hosting
WordPress and Drupal are two popular content management systems (CMS) with large support communities. Hosting for both is provided through the Division of IT.
Static website hosting
Sometimes, you need a site that is simple, does not change often and is small so that managing it with a full content management system would be inefficient. In these situations, we can help you by providing static website hosting. The hosting service provided through the Division of IT.
Custom website development
Digital Service provides custom website development to departments at the University of Missouri on a time and material basis. Using university resources to develop small or medium sized websites is cost effective and cheaper than using an outside vendor. Our process includes discovery with the department (identify scope, discover content/audience, functional requirements, workflow needs, etc…) and then a detailed estimate is provided for review. Development will then proceed with a dedicated web developer and oversight from the department and Digital Service. Charges for the project will be processed to a university account after the work is accepted. If you need custom web development, request a consultation with Digital Service.
Website development using preferred vendors
After consulting with Digital Service, it may become clear that the resources required to complete a proposed project are more than the university has available. When that is the case, we will recommend using one of the Preferred Vendors we have on contract.
Website Support and Custom Development
Custom development of plugins and modules
Digital Service staff can develop and implement WordPress plugins or Drupal modules as required to automate well-defined business processes. Digital Service will provide expertise to design and develop custom applications following University of Missouri standards on a time and material basis. Contact us to schedule a discovery session where we will discuss your needs and identify solutions.
Maintenance and support
Every website launched requires maintenance over time to make sure it remains secure, performs properly and receives updates to software and code. Digital Service does not currently provide maintenance of content, but we do provide CMS, plugin/module, and supporting tool updates. Contact us for more information about website support services.
