System consultancy is not just about developing plain old websites. It is about working on a concept and making it real. These "Homepages" as  you've known them since the early 90's  aren't simple sets of HTML files since a while ago - a modern website is directed by highly skilled software systems specializing in Content Management, Customer Relationship Management, Enterprise Ressource Management - or maybe a simple Weblog tool such as Wordpress, this being a standard tool for content mashup via XML.

Focussing small and medium companies, in each of these areas there are successful products and business models, which I enjoy demonstrating. Take these pages, for example - they're based on Typo3, a content management system distributed using open source licencing rules. You can use it for free, I just offer knowhow - affordable conditions granted.

Have a look at the flagship sites I'm working on here. Both of them are for german inhabitants at this time, but this might change in the future.

  • Uebernachten-in-MV.de is a lodgings agency for holiday appartments, homes and rooms specializing in the areas of Mecklenburg and Vorpommern, parts of the northeastern state of Germany.
  • GutesVomLan.de is going to be a marketplace for premium consumer goods of high quality, mostly handcrafted and expressing an individual livestyle of the customer.

 

Both sites are more than their frontends - there is a distribution structure behind each of them reflecting the special needs for the products they make available. And each take their focus on individual small companies as suppliers.

How do I come to realize and provide projects like these? Maybe you want to ask me. It's not like I've done things like these since yesterday only - and, yes, I do admit I'm a bit proud of it.
