The Trinity website is the university's main communications and marketing platform, promoting Trinity to a global audience. The objective of the Web Transformation Project is to eliminate risk to the website and deliver a robust, scalable, and easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS) for the university. This in turn will improve and enhance the Trinity website with regard to security and compliance. It will ensure brand consistency through the use of consistent web templates and provide all college web authors with quick and easy publishing. It will also enable website functionality such as data capture, repurposing content, and personalisation which is vital in supporting Trinity's key objectives for student recruitment, research, and rankings.
