When ComputerMinds first came on board on this project the main requirement was one of consultancy. UCAS manages a number of sites which are supported by their in house development team. The first task was to come up with an elegant solution to their hosting woes. Under the legacy system UCAS were supporting quite a lot of technical resources when it came to hosting so that peaks in demand could be handled without any adverse effects.
Training and consultancy all had to be done onsite at the client's offices in Cheltenham due to the sensitive nature of the data involved. ComputerMinds were also on hand to add in some development resource such as the development of a UCAS Mobile site.
