SGI Supportfolio

Sitewide Navigation for Supportfolio Website

Supportfolio Online allows SGI customers to quickly and easily solve their SGI support issues online, 24 hours a day. The easy-to-use Supportfolio Online interface saves time by providing access to online case reporting and management, latest software updates and patches, with full-featured search and information retrieval, and personalized e-mail notification.

I worked full time on Supportfolio and was responsible for designing a consistent navigation system which enabled us to rebrand a collection of some 80,000+ documents using command line utilities that I developed.

Since parts of the site are CGI applications, I also wrote a Perl API that developers used to incorporate the navigation in their applications. Our team was responsible for the look'n'feel of the IRIX, Linux and Windows NT support home pages.
