ISC Moves Website

ISC Moves Website

Thursday, April 20, 2006

Now you see it, now you see it. Regular visitors to the ISC web site may have noticed some subtle changes to the web site in the last day or two.


The familiar, mostly blue screen of is now mostly white. And behind this change are many more changes to the most popular web site in the fastball world.


The reasons for this relate to a decision to move from our old host site BlueGenesis to a new provider, Net Reliant


The reasons for this were many and complicated but involved the retirement of our previous webmaster Brent Wade, a professional who has given the ISC many years of fine service. Brent assisted our ISC Web Director, Al Doran, with the technical side of the web site and produced a complete makeover of the site on a couple of occasions and automated many facets of the site including the Tournament List and Contact List but most notably the results page of the World Tournament. Al has been able to update the web site within minutes of the end of each game at the WT.


With Brent's retirement, the ISC chose Net Reliant to host the ISC web site and to do a complete makeover, providing a whole new set of tools to Al Doran to make changes to the site. Al highly recommended Net Reliant and its founder, Rahemin Nanji for the job as he has seen a great deal of his previous work and was most impressed.  Net Reliant also recently did a total conversion of Al's Fastball Site as well and he was most pleased with the results and the level of customer service.


For the past few weeks, Al and Net Reliant have been working behind the scenes converting the almost 1,000 pages of the ISC site over to a new automated format. This week, they physically moved the site from Blue Genesis to Net Reliant, and by now everyone should be able to see the results.


"The main objective of the move" says Al Doran, our Web Site Director, "is to have our web site on a stable platform with the same people who assist us with the technical managment of the site. With the move, we will be using a new tool called ReliantCMS, a Content Management Solution provided by Net Reliant, to enable us to make website content changes more quickly and efficiently, with the bottom line being fastball fans world wide can see the news faster."


ISC Executive Director Ken Hackmeister congratulated Al and Rahemin on the work done and the smooth transition of the web site. The change comes at a key time for the ISC where soon there will be announcments of Team Rankings, Out of Area Player Lists, and before we know it, the schedule for the World Tournament and the ISC - II Tournament of Champions. In today’s world of instant electronic information, the ISC cannot afford to sit back and not take advantage of the latest technology.


Net Reliant is pleased at the opportunity to be working with the ISC and looks forward to providing the organization with ongoing services, solutions, and support.
