Carlson Wagonlit Travel: SharePoint Database Integration

Carlson Wagonlit Travel: SharePoint Database Integration


Project Description

Bilingual Team Mate Site

CWT has a worldwide presence with offices in more than 150 countries and territories, and Carlson Wagonlit Travel Canada has over 175 locations coast to coast. The CWT Team Mate site is a secured, bilingual extranet portal available to agents across Canada. It is written in ColdFusion with a SQL Server Database. The current site with hundreds of static pages was not easy to maintain from a content perspective and had engaged Spot Solutions to create a new site using SharePoint. The new SharePoint Extranet site will manage documents associated with the site and to manage the site navigation and content. The site integrates with and displays the appropriate ColdFusion components which manage all data collection and business logic and our team developed a streamlined application-based user authentication and access to SharePoint through a SAML identity provider. Support for English and French versions was provided by activating the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature to create Variations. SharePoint Language Packs are installed on all SharePoint ServerWeb Front End and Application Servers to optimize searching for documents written in French.
