To further enhance communications between states to protect the food supply Datastream, in coordination with the National Center for Food Protection and Defense and the Division of Federal/State Relations at the FDA, are deploying a unique web ecosystem. The Food Protection Task Force required a web system that would allow for a parent site, and up to 50 state-based sites: one per state. The goal is to allow task forces to communicate with other task forces, the FDA, and constituents in their state whether in the public or industry.
Datastream has been built a unique ecosystem of sites that allows each state to simply manage their web sites, and created automated plumbing behind the scenes to coordinate data flows as appropriate. The result is a fluid ecosystem of sites that each maintain their autonomy to satisfy local state needs, yet within a framework that solves the needs of the FDA.
Contact us for more information on how we took a challenge of this proportion and delivered it so users with little to no web experience could manage their state's site. To further put this infrastructure ahead of the curve: mobile app extensions of these sites are coming soon!
