Marketing - Infrastrukture

Added by Maik Hagenbruch almost 7 years ago

TYPO3 Marketing Team // Website Infrastructure Optimization - Kian T. Gould

We want to finish the planned reorganization of typo3.org which means to integrate association.typo3.org and other microsites (buzz, certification, ...) into typo3.org. The integration will be done by moving the microsites to the main typo3.org instance or by even merging the content to typo3.org.

Additionally the current shop situation has to be resolved. Currently we have only two specialists who can deal with the shop. Both are often not available. We'd like to migrate the shop to a platform where we are not relying on just two persons, as well as pushing the quality and convenience for both, users and backend users (accountants). This could be either a TYPO3 extension thats used a lot or preferably a Magento installation.

I assume that 2000 units mean 2000 working hours only on migration and integration of the new shop system? How come that this is expected to be a process of 250 days?

There is a request of a "fallback" budget, in case this one will not be granted.
It says there will be 300 hours of work to do the stuff that is necessary for the shop system.

So the question is: What else do you have in mind that should be done within the other 1700 working hours?
Is this calculated for the migration of the microsites?

IMHO it should be possible to give a more detailed overview in form of milestones or something similar, so that people get some details instead of just one big picture.
Some of the other spreadsheets already provide such information.

I second that ... there should not be 100.000+ € in just one milestone without further explanation.

+1 ... without further explanation, this is just a joke!

For a budget application of this size I would expect much more detail, features, milestones. In the current form it is unacceptable.
Since there is no public visibility of the current marketing team (no "typo3.org/teams/marketing" and an emtpy http://forge.typo3.org/projects/team-marketing-public and no activity reports, I wonder whether the marketing team exists and if yes, what they are doing.

2000h for migrating the shop system in a new one, how old is the old one that there is just a horable milestone?

Now a little bit construktive:
If there is just a big position to migrate a old system you can think about starting a new one without migration.

For getting the microsites into the typo3.org i contribute if you want my helf.

In fact what we were thinking in the marketing team is to build it from scratch w/o migration. At the moment, unfortunately, only very few people know the full scope of the solution which is in place. Additionally, we should have more possibilities to take full advantage of such a solution in terms of marketing. We are thinking of promotion possibilities, beeing able to make packages and bundles for a certain time etc.

This is not only about the shop frontend stuff. All the membership managagement is based on this solution so is the event administration. First of all we should have an overview of features that we would like to include.

I agree with you the application could have more milestones. A marketing meeting will take place this week and we will surely talk this through and come up with more info.

@Jochen: Fully understood. I am sorry there has been so few communication and reporting from the marketing team. In fact we exist, and we work. We will change our way to communicate as soon as possible. If you have questions, pls don't hesitate to contact Kian or me.

As the amount of hours to rebuild the solution is quite high, I see a feasible point of making the development based on Flow and releasing some components (aka basic shopping solution) back to the community which would mean that the working hours would help two teams at once. :)

Hi guys

Just an update on this. We will work on an article for this proposal where we want to list all the different tasks that need to be taken within this proposal so its more transparent for everyone. I listed some of the in the presentation at T3CON but you are right before this can be approved more details are needed.

Cheers
Kian

Hi there
