Using a custom built campaign website creation platform, Sqills releases a large quantity (100+) of campaign specific websites for the Nationale Postcode Loterij every year. All apsects of this framework are focused on a short time to market and low cost of introducing new websites, that can generate new ticket sales transactions that flow to the back-office through a custom deveveloped order manager flawlessly.
The main challenge in this project was to implement a high-performance, very scalable and robust platform to
facilitate releasing over 100 campaign oriented websites per year in a very short release cycle. The solution
entails a custom built modular platform based on Zend (PHP), that is able to process large peak transaction volumes.
In this platform, the fron-end development (which differs for each campaign) is separated fully from the underlying
framework development, which, in turns, handles the back-office transaction flow through a dedicated order manager
developed by Sqills as well (in a separate project). Finally, automated (regression) testing plays a crucial role
in the project to ensure quality demands are met every time, for each released website, despite
the short implementation times and high volumes.
