Abstract

Spain is developing version 2 of its official tourism portal. This updated portal will be the new face for the main tourism initiatives worldwide. OpenCms as the CMS core is a key component for this strategic project.

This project is a well thought shift into the Open Source world. OpenCms enables us to keep the software costs within strict boundaries, while still being able to create a high-profile, sophisticated web 2.0 tourism portal.

For this important and highly visible project we are working closely with the OpenCms core team in order to influence the product functionalities and road map. Together with the team at Alkacon, we are sponsoring important usability enhancements that will be part of the upcoming OpenCms 8.0 release.

In this session we will present the current state of affairs in this project, and also show some of the advanced interactive functionalities we are about to integrate in the new official Spanish tourism portal.
