Distribution portal development
Pražská plynárenská Distribuce
In the autumn of 2016 and in the spring of 2017, we worked on a project to develop the distribution portal of Pražská plynárenská Distribuce, a.s. In the first phase of this project, the Liferay portal platform was upgraded from the current version 6.0.6 to version 6.2.
The main objectives of this phase were to increase security and minimize the risk against possible attacks, to optimize the vulnerabilities of the platform version 6.0.6, to increase its reliability, to ensure more efficient work of users and, last but not least, to maintain the availability of manufacturer’s support and thus ensure the availability of new functionalities for further development.
After the completion of this phase, we have smoothly resumed work on the development of the distribution portal functionalities. The requirements for these changes were triggered by the employees of Pražská plynárenská Distribuce, a.s. and the management of this company. Most of the implemented requests were aimed at improving and simplifying the work of users. Interesting extensions to the programmed functionality include, for example, incorporating the logic of automatic approval of amendments instead of manual intervention of the trader with subsequent notification to the relevant manager or the ability of the gas trader to manage his own group of users to whom he delegates rights to work on the portal.
