Have you ever worked for a company that’s been hacked?
For the last 20 years, I’ve been lucky enough to work across multiple platforms — including several different Content Management Systems (CMSs) across the .NET and PHP tech stack — as a software engineer, development manager, and now as Sitback’s CTO. But out of all the different CMSs I’ve worked with, Drupal is one of my favourites — and it’s the one I use most often in client engagements.
Out of the box, Drupal offers robust content management tools and sophisticated APIs for multichannel publishing that are useful for individuals and organisations alike. Yet, there are still opportunities to improve upon the Drupal core for performance, SEO, and accessibility.
If you’re in the market for website maintenance plans, you’ll quickly notice that no two providers or plans are the same. The variety of services and quality can vary dramatically between options. What's more, each maintenance provider will approach your situation differently, based on their own unique processes and workflows.
Maintaining a fast, functional, and compliant website is crucial to success in today’s digital-centric world. Keeping everything running smoothly in this way often requires investing in the help of a trained professional.
Identifying the right website maintenance plan and provider can be challenging — but it doesn't have to be. By taking the time to understand the right questions to ask, you’ll be better prepared to make the right decision when selecting between different website maintenance plans.
The Experience Design team at Sitback is at the beginning of an exciting new period of development. While already well respected amongst clients and partners for the quality of work and depth of research, this new chapter in the company's evolution will see appreciable growth, both in terms of capacity, and also the range of value-based services on offer.
Spearheading this change is our new Experience Design Director, Paul Taylor. I sat down with Paul for a conversation about his background, what benefits he brings for Sitback's clients, and a glimpse at his vision for the future of UX and experience design.
Businesses and technologies are constantly changing. What may have been a cutting-edge website back in 1998 would look like an ancient, virus-infected relic to a modern audience. Thankfully, most long-running websites have kept up with the times to some extent and updated their designs — even though there are still a few sites out there that look like time capsules from an era gone by (we’re looking at you, Ling!).

When most people think of UX, website maintenance isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But although a website’s nuts and bolts often take a backseat to frontend design and functionality in public opinion, it’s the backend of a site that keeps everything running smoothly. Suffice to say? If the backend of your site isn’t well-maintained, the user-facing parts of your site will suffer too.
If you read our previous article regarding our learnings from remote workshops, then you will know that Sitback has been running all of our stakeholder workshops online for the last year across a number of clients, one of which was The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE). Building on our last article, this time we will take a deep dive into the remote workshops we conducted with DPIE for their “Threatened Species” project, as well as our approach to running both the requirements gathering and co-design workshops.
