What skills should I ask for in a web developer that I need to contract?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can contribute. My company is planning for a web development project that'll we'll contract for. My question is, what is the best development approach to this project (i.e. what skills should I require that a developer have)?
Currently our web hosting environment and other web projects are LAMP-based. We'd like to stay open source for this project too but it's a much larger development project than we've tacklecd beforehand. if MS development is the best approach, that's okay too if someone would just explain what kind of investment is required to put a MS solution in place, from a licensing perspective.
What we're planning to implement is an interactive web portal to consolidate and display data from:
Inventory databases (e.g., Nagios, Solarwinds)
Help Desk ticketing database (Oracle)
Various other MS SQL and Oracle databases, including MS SCOM/SCCM
In addition to consolidating data for display on the site, we'll also create a dynamic environment to process the Help Desk ticketing data for end user responses or escalation requests, equipment inventories and order processing to maintain a real time update for each business location's users to be able to both view the status of the IT environment and act on notices, such as:
- React to Help Desk tickets and do things such as escalate the ticket (write back to the HD ticket DB) or press a button to tell an equipment ordering software to place an order.
- Click a button to escalate (communicate) a problem directly to an outside vendor for dispatch
- get forwarded to a tutorial site for instructions on basic system troubleshooting
- acknowledge an alert (write back to a Nagios / Solarwinds database)
Basically a web portal hub for all things IT equipment related, with database feeds for viewing statuses and interaction with those databases and external communications for action / reaction.
This site would need to scale up to a 1000 simultaneous users with 50,000+ IT devices being observed.
