Tate Museum Group Selects Axis12 Limited for Online Drupal Project

The Tate Museum Group, who recently announced a major shift in their approach to their online presence by a move to the Drupal CMS, have selected London based Axis12 Limited to deliver the technical architecture for the platform, to deliver a SOLR based unified search solution that will cover a number of existing and new web sites and to provide Drupal development capacity to support the in-house Tate Online development team.

The 10-year-old Tate website, which receives over 18 million visitors a year, currently uses hand-coded HTML files. This will be replaced with a Drupal 7-based platform to move the site from a “brochure approach” to a social platform, encouraging debate and interaction about art as well as supporting user-generated content.

Colin Sweetman, the Axis12 director responsible for Business and Corporate development, said, “We are absolutely delighted to be able to work alongside the Tate Online team on this project. The Tate Online platform will be a flagship Drupal 7 implementation, and we are very proud to have the won the opportunity to be a part of it, especially in the face of stiff competition.”
