This website looks great on mobile devices!
Brief Overview 

Swedish ICT is a innovative website and community with extensive functionality. In essence it is a Domain Access solution (http://drupal.org/project/domain) with five different organizations (Swedish ICT, Acreo, Swedish Institute of Computer Science, Interactive Intitute and Viktoria Institute) working together in a common database with hundreds of users.

The site is responsive and integrates with a variety of systems. For blazing speed we used Varnish and a smart search function with facets entries via the Search API / Solr. The Swedish ICT site have a global search with results from all the institutes.

Swedish ICT's Drupal solution with new digital identity, new information architecture and migration (from proprietary CMS EPiServer, Drupal 5 and WordPress) was produced with agile development in 6 sprints over about 4 months.

A typical case of project where Drupal as platform excels!

Happiness
We started Happiness with a single mission and a goal: job satisfaction. And still today, job satisfaction is our mission and only goal. We have noticed that it is enough. If the team has fun, together – we can fix almost anything. And Drupal is obviously an important component in making work fun.
Why Drupal Was Chosen 
Swedish ICT had a situation with 3 Drupal 5 sites, 1 EPiServer site, 1 Joomla site and 1 WordPress site. Drupal was the perfect platform for the digital strategy and since experienced with Drupal - the choice was easy. Also with the migrate module it was possible to migrate all information to the new site.
