Tuesday, July 5, 2016

The portal has recorded simultaneously a record number of 904,000 users in the first minutes since displaying. For the second year in a row, results have been processed in Cloud by SIVECO Romania

1st of July was an extremely important day for the 8th grade students, who have been waiting impatiently for the results in the National Evaluation 2016. After the marks have been published, tension has ended for parents and pupils alike, but also for the SIVECO specialists, the ones who have managed the results’ processing and their online publishing.

As soon as the marks have been published, children and parents have accessed the portal  in order to see what results they got. Thus, shortly after 16:00 hours, the portal was reaching a record number of 904,000 simultaneous users!

According to traffic statistics, during the first 48 hours from the marks’ publishing, the portal has recorded a number of 30.2 million pages displayed. The displaying time for all the pages has been under 2.2 seconds.

97.4% of the visitors have accessed the portal from Romania, but there were also visitors from Italy, England, Germany, Spain, France, Greece, Austria and the United States. As for the geographical spread, Bucharest ranks first in the top of hits in Romania (27.6%), followed by Iași, Cluj and Timiș counties, with some 4% each. The counties for which the least hits were made for checking the results online in the National Evaluation 2016 are Covasna and Tulcea.

“Due to this project, the 150,000 pupils registered this year have had quick access to the results they got from anywhere they could access the Internet. We notice the trend showing that more and more Romanians are accessing the internet from their mobile phone or tablet. The project includes a huge volume of preparation work and implies a very high pressure from the public opinion during the results’ processing. It is a strategic, mission critical project, vital for the normal development of the national exams, confirming Romania’s alignment to the international trends in education. 2016 is the second year when the National Evaluation results are processed in Cloud”, states Florin Anton, manager of eLearning department within SIVECO Romania.

The portal is a component of the SEI Educational Portal, currently ranking 1st in the top of websites in Romanian in the category Education/Learning and 5th in the overall websites ranking in Romania, according to
