Last time, I asked how you can use a combination of fit-for-purpose technologies, while avoiding building an unwieldy intranet solution for your organisation.
If you already have 'too much knitting' and you're burdened with a hard to maintain mix of branding and code, then complex technical solutions such as deploying skin-swapping technologies like XDV may be an option. But this requires design effort to retrofit existing sites. Budgets get stretched and can leave you with even more of a maintenance headache.
We've been approached in the past about looking at environmentally-friendly hosting. We've been long-term partners at Rackspace, and have been pleased with their own carbon offset schemes and environmental policies. Their Green IT award in 2010 was a testament to that.
