Silicus Solution

Silicus developed an Intranet portal on SharePoint Online encompassing all the features envisioned by the client. The components were designed using JavaScript along with ECMA script, jQuery, CSS, Bootstrap and HTML. The key reason Silicus used JavaScript are:

  • Its implementation is on client side, which results in lesser bandwidth strain on web server. Also, code execution results are generated instantly on the user computer
  • It allows third party add-ons to use snippets on the web pages

Bootstrap Responsive technology was leveraged for ease of use on smart phones. A picture library was created with the SharePoint image rendition feature for resizing images to fit them in the component. Some of the features of the picture library included Flipping windows 8 tiles, Image Carousal with scrolling and Easy Next/Previous snippet.

As per the client request, pointer locations on a map was added to pinpoint important locations where community members are based, or want to highlight for certain reasons. This was done using CSS and JQuery.
