DotNetNuke Intranet Portal For MNC's

Client Requirement

CLIENT currently has a Sharepoint portal which caters to their needs. But this system is costly and not intuitive enough to attract CLIENT’s end-users to use on daily basis. The client demanded a DNN portal which can be customized to meet CLIENT’s current portal functionalities and also make it a single access point for all CLIENT users to have their applications accessed through this portal. The DNN portal will have an intuitive design which would appeal to the end-users and users will be able to use this system as part of their day-to-day job for their important activities.

Project Challenges

  • Developing a portal offering all the features and functionalities with an exclusive focus on the user’s day-to-day important activities.
  • Single-sign On Integration with SAP and Other Third Party Applications
  • Synchronizing and incorporating web usability principles while developing numerous features designed for enhancing the users’ experience.
  • Providing a robust framework for supporting the smooth functioning of the portal accessed by number of users simultaneously.
  • Harmonizing the simultaneous execution of various integrated features and options while maintaining the consistent load balance.
  • Ensuring user privacy and safeguarding their content.


The following approach was decided in order to meet the client’s requirements:

  • After taking all scenarios and requirements into consideration and looking at the cost factor, the Sarvang team decided to implement DotNetNuke (DNN) for allowing the client to manage portal content.
  • A new intuitive dashboard design and site overhaul was done in order to attract its endusers and also give them clear visibility on important areas.
  • A 3-tier architecture approach was decided as the same is used by DNN.

Development Highlight

Using DNN the development was done very quickly and efficiently. DNN provided the base modules and their functions which were easy to deploy with all basic functions running flawlessly.

The developed application provided the client with a system capable of handling all the data and with ease of access for everyone.

The detailed requirement gathering was done that helped setting up a well-designed system with all the modules integrated into it along with the control over user access.

The web usability guidelines were strictly followed during development and the interface was made easily navigable through judicious use of AJAX, CSS and HTML controls. The site was developed and fully functional within a span of 6 months.

The client’s ASP.Net based legacy systems were integrated with the DNN portal which allowed users to log into the second application without having to enter credentials again as the application passed the session to other systems.

Portal was made with a responsive layout which worked as well on tablets and smart phones and other handheld devices.
